12 Nepalese killed in Iraq


An Islamic Web site has posted gruesome still images and videos of what it says is the killing of 12 Nepalese hostages by a militant group in Iraq. Footage posted on Tuesday showed one beheading and 11 others apparently shot from an assault rifle at the back of the head.
These men committed the crime of working for a Jordanian company in a free (i.e. occupied) Iraq and not being Muslim. Once in a while, it is good, perhaps necessary, to remind ourselves of the nature of the enemy we face. These men are thugs, nothing more. They are financed by other thugs, primarily men in power in Tehran and Damascus who hope that America will lose hope, lose the will to fight and abandon the middle-east to their tyranny. My condolences to the friends and family of these innocent victims.
