South Korean Hostage Executed

MSNBC is reporting that Al-Jazeera is reporting that the South Korean man who has been held hostage by Islamic militants has been murdered. These actions need to be censured by any and all commenters. There is no justification for what these animals did. They do not deserve to be called "human".

Those bastards sure do seem

Those bastards sure do seem enamored of the method. It's hard to image the depth of hatred (or cold lack of any emotion) one must summon in order to physically cut another human's head off. I mean, I get pissed at all sorts of people all the time. Sometimes, I even cheer when someone dies. But these kidnapping-hostage-murders are the basest I think I've witnessed members of humanity go, excepting the last recent waves of genocide in parts of the world.

Sometimes it's legitimate to state that a culture is barbaric.

These actions need to be

These actions need to be censured by any and all commenters.

Not to be perverse, but why do you say that? What purpose would be served by a rote censuring of a plainly barbaric act? Every time the media report a murder, do you think they need to dutifully add that they "censure" the murderers' actions?

I don't think these

I don't think these assholes choose to behead their victims out of depth of hatred but rather because they believe the modern world, especially Americans, are cowards.

As far as censuring their actions, it doesn't matter what the "civilized" world says. If the imams, ayatollahs, and mullahs sit silently then the fundamentalists will continue to hijack Islam.

I don't believe the imams,

I don't believe the imams, ayatollahs, or mullahs HAVE remained silent. They don't get the coverage on al jazeera OR cnn that the extremists do. . . but they haven't been silent, either.

I am waiting for the Arab *leaders* to speak up, loud and clear messages from every sheik in every islamic State in the Arab world.

even if Al-Jazeera and CNN

even if Al-Jazeera and CNN didn't give coverage to the Muslim clerics who are "supposedly" speaking out against act of terror, there are plenty of media entities that would.

Frankly, I seriously doubt any clerics are speaking up against fundamentalists. If they preached tolerance and peace with non-Muslims they would lose power very quickly. (I'll caveat the last statement that this only is true where Muslims are the majority)

Jonathan,

There is no justification for what these animals did. They do not deserve to be called ?human?.

If they were simply animals they wouldn't be subject to moral judgment. If a tiger had ripped the man's head off would you think the tiger evil?

These are members of the only species with a capacity for evil, they are quite human. They are evil men.
