Khalid Sheikh Mohammed responsible, not Daniel Pearl, Re: UN Ambassador Samantha Power: “Daniel Pearl’s story is reminder that individual accountability and reconciliation are required to break cycles of violence”, Jihad Watch, February 24, 2014

Daniel Pearl was a reporter for the Wall Street Journal working in Pakistan when he was kidnapped by a group of jihadists calling themselves The National Movement for the Restoration of Pakistani Sovereignty.

He was held captive for nine days and then executed.

One of the group members named Khalid Sheikh Mohammed executed him.

This is the same Khalid Sheikh Mohammed who was one of the most senior members of al-Qaeda for many years and who was the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks in the United States

Among other things.

To say that he has rivers of American blood on his hands is an understatement of massive proportions.

Mohammed slit Pearl’s throat and then decapitated him.

That’s decapitated…as in beheaded…as in cut his head off.

On video.

Which then went viral and was shown all over the world.

Before Pearl died he was forced to read the following statement.

“My name is Daniel Pearl. I’m a Jewish American from Encino, California, U.S.A….My father’s Jewish, my mother’s Jewish, I’m Jewish. My family follows Judaism. We’ve made numerous family visits to Israel.”

Just before his throat was slit he stared into the camera and said “My name is Daniel Pearl, I am an American Jew.”

After which Mohammed slit his throat and cut his head off.

On video.

There is no doubt whatsoever that Mohammed slit his throat and cut his head off because he was American, because he was Jewish and because he was a friend of Israel.

Mostly because he was Jewish however.

No doubt whatsoever.

There is also no doubt whatsoever that as an Islamist…as a believer…as a jihadist… Mohammed felt that slitting his throat and cutting his head off was perfectly legitimate and justifiable.

Which it was.

Which it is.

Which it has been for 1,400 years, ever since Islam first came into existence.

Last weekend United States Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power gave the 2013/2014 Daniel Pearl Memorial Lecture in Los Angeles, after which she sent out the following tweet.

“Daniel Pearl’s story is reminder that individual accountability & reconciliation are required to break cycles of violence.”

What a monstrous, reprehensible, despicable, unconscionable, utterly disgusting thing to say.

What a monstrous, reprehensible, despicable, unconscionable, utterly disgusting thing to believe.

Here’s some information for Ms. Power.

Daniel Pearl’s throat was slit and his head was cut off purely and simply because he was American, because he was Jewish and because he was a friend of Israel.

Mostly because he was Jewish however.

In no way was he responsible for his own death, or for the horrific manner in which it occurred.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, aided and abetted by his fellow Islamists…fellow believers…fellow jihadists…and by his Islamic beliefs, was responsible, fully and totally and completely responsible.

Mohammed’s act was savage, inhuman and barbaric and no civilized human being can justify, condone or excuse it. There simply is no way for a civilized human to justify, condone or excuse it under any circumstances.

Period.

Here’s a question for Ms. Power.

Let’s say that a group of jihadists kidnap you because you’re American, hold you captive for nine days, repeatedly rape you (rape being entirely legitimate in Islam) then put you in front of a camera, horrifically murder you and display the video to the world…would you be responsible for your death and the manner in which it occurred?

Of course not.

Could your death and the manner in which it occurred be justified, condoned or excused by civilized human beings?

Of course not.

Given Ms. Power’s monstrous, reprehensible, despicable, unconscionable and utterly disgusting tweet and her track record as an anti-Semite and anti-Israel ideologue, she should be asked to resign…she should be forced to resign if she won’t go on her own.

The American people deserve much, much better.

The American people are much, much better and a person like her representing them at the United Nations diminishes and hurts them, does nothing to serve them or their country.

No Ms. Power, Daniel Pearl wasn’t responsible for his own death.

Khalid Sheikh Mohamed, aided and abetted by his fellow Islamists…his fellow believers…his fellow jihadists, and by his Islamic beliefs, was responsible, fully and totally and completely responsible.

Period.
