Nicholas Berg Murder
I don't know NB but according to Imam Ali saying he is a brother for all of us in humanity (The people are two; either brother for you in religion or brother for you in humanity). When I saw the video of NB beheading I had a strange feeling never experienced before which is a mixture of my brain went standstill and my stomach and heart went up to my head! It is more than sickness indeed.
Those who killed NB are worse than the devil and it is not right to describe them as animals because animals feel ashamed from such behaviour. The only creature (which) may do such crime is the man! The history of mankind is full with atrocities and killing. The main mischief in this earth comes from mankind!
Other things which make me to feel surprised when I saw the video is why NB was wearing the uniform which is used by the Americans for the prisoners?! The other thing is whether the thugs who killed him asphyxiated him or killed him before the beheading because of the way his blood was spraying was very poor. Cutting the neck arteries(carotid arteries) should produce a strong spray of blood. NB also was weak in his resistance to the knife and pain a case may result from exhaustion or heavy sedation. In any way those who killed him should be brought to justice and tried and executed by the same way.
NB had no crime to be killed in such barbaric way. Even if he was a killer or criminal it is the justice and law which should confirm that and punish but not an outlawed people. The thugs who killed him as if they killed the whole mankind according to the Quran:
If any one slew a person - unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land - it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. (The Holly Quran Sura-Al-Maeda 5;32)
The thugs who killed him said that it is in revenge to the abuses of the Iraqi prisoners in Abu Ghrieb. This is wrong because NB has nothing to do with that issue and according to the Quran this is wrong as there is no burden should be put on another one who has nothing to do with it:
Nor can a bearer of burdens bear another's burdens if one heavily laden should call another to (bear) his load. Not the least portion of it can be carried (by the other). Even though he be nearly related. Thou canst but admonish such as fear their Lord unseen and establish regular Prayer. And whoever purifies himself does so for the benefit of his own soul; and the destination (of all) is to Allah. (The Holly Quran Sura-Fatir (The Originator) 35;18)
God (Allah) is innocent from these thugs and he surely will punish them. He indeed distanced himself from their action before it takes place:
If it had been thy Lord's will, they would all have believed,- all who are on earth! wilt thou then compel mankind, against their will, to believe! (The Holly Quran Sura-Yunus (Jonah) 10;99)
We would like to see the thugs captured and tried so soon and punished in front of the camera.
