BOOMERANG: AN IRAQI JOURNALIST MURDERED/video is a hoax



Part of me died when I saw this cruel killing, Hala Jaber.

Had it died when the murder of Israelis began or even the murder of Daniel Pearl, this cruel killling may not have taken place.

Frieda is right, it is time to post Martin Niemöller's all too well known and relevant poem. Well, now that they are coming after Muslim female journalists, do you think it's time to drop your"objective" posturing which so empowers depraved evildoers.

UPDATE: The video described by The Times is a reedited version of a previous beheading. JAWA explains it all. Warning: it makes horrific viewing.

When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews,
I did not speak out;
I was not a Jew.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.
Martin Niemöller (1892-1984)
