    Hizbollah Slams Beheading of American as Un-Islamic

    BEIRUT (Reuters) - Lebanon's Hizbollah guerrilla group condemned Wednesday the beheading of an American hostage by Iraqi militants as an ugly crime that flouted the tenets of Islam.

    "Hizbollah condemns this horrible act that has done very great harm to Islam and Muslims by this group that claims affiliation to the religion of mercy, compassion and humane principles," the Shi'ite Muslim group said in a statement.

    An Islamist Web site Tuesday carried a video clip of the execution of the man who identified himself as Nick Berg, with a statement saying a group linked to al Qaeda did it in revenge for the abuse of Iraqis by U.S. troops.

    Hizbollah said Berg's killing had diverted the world's gaze from an escalating furor over the abuse of Iraqi prisoners by occupation soldiers.

    "The timing of this act that overshadowed the scandal over the abuse of Iraqi prisoners in occupation forces prisons is suspect timing that aims to serve the American administration and occupation forces in Iraq and present excuses and pretexts for their inhumane practices against Iraqi detainees."

    The Syrian-backed group which the United States deems "terrorist" said the executors' behavior was closer to "the Pentagon school -- the school of killing and occupation and crimes and torture and immoral practices that were exposed by the great scandal in occupation prisons."

    Washington blames Hizbollah, whose attacks forced Israeli troops to withdraw from south Lebanon in 2000 after a 22-year occupation, for 1980s suicide bombings against its embassy and Marines barracks and the abduction of Westerners in Beirut.

    I would condemn it too if I was found out and needed to continue my deception.

    The thing I hope we can understand here is that the koran okays lying in order to achieve the loftier goals.

    If that is the case, which it is, then we all would be wise when talking to a muslim, to remember that fact.

    That is why most who do not understand what the koran says are often duped by muslims.

    Reading the koran clears everything up, but most Americans would rather defend the unknown than read and be the wiser.

    :D


    Nah, I just don't like not knowing anything.

    I will admit when I don't have information on something, but I HATE being uninformed. IF I take a stance in my beliefs, I can also provide you with plenty of information on the OPPOSITE of my beliefs.

    You ought to see my library o' stuff. :)

    On a serious note, I am a firm believer that "religion" is the prime motivating core of what makes all of us tick. It always overrides all other thinking and behaviors. It causes us to become who we are. As such, if we have a world of many texts promoting philosophies of life and ways to die, achieve salvation, gain moral or ethical responsibility, or even run a war, we ought to know what these texts say.

    Now our lives depend on it.

    Our president by either compromise through damage control or ignorance has taken a stand that is not based in fact regarding islam. This can be proven easilly by reading the koran, not by taking anyones word, or reading history books.

    The koran is the religious text.

    If our lives depend on this movement, we ought to wake up and get educated YESTERDAY.

    If you lost your job, and had to be re-educated, how long would you wait?

    Why wait now?

    I think we are the product of subatomic fart residue combined with stellar mucous which has been slowly subjected to the sun's ultraviolet radiation and caused a spontaneous sneeze which produced a big bang and we all geletanized on a big blue marble which shall be used to win the next pro billiards tournament when we will end up in someone's pocket.

    :D

    Now that your brain is dripping onto the floor out of your left ear, we return you to your regularly scheduled tin hat.....I mean program. :cof:

    "Slams beheading"???????? I've been slammed harder with a wet noodle. The only reason these camel jocks made any statement at all was to whine about the fact that this atrocity diverted attention from the prisoner humiliation issue. And they used their "denouncement" simply as a means to get in another shot at the USA.

    If you can condemn someone with faint praise, then this statement serves to prove that you can also support someone with faint condemnation.
