The New York Times Puts on a Dress, and Whore's For Readers.

If you don't have the stomach for crude, vulgar, disgusting descriptions of murder? .... By terrorist pustules. Then certainly it would be best to skip this (further below in italics) excerpt from the New York Times.

We all have that decision to make, whether we watch a beheading video or not. Certainly I cannot recommend watching even one, to anyone. I waited two years before watching my first, a couple of months back. It's power is a force to be reckoned with. Mostly, I had found the concept demeaning, dehumanizing. Cheapening life.

So, I found it quite odd to read in the first few paragraphs of this Times article. A description of the unbridled joy a terrorist (recruiter?) receives when watching a beheading video. Odd for two reasons ..... the aforementioned description almost tantamount to playing the vid. And two ... it was as if the Times was trolling for readers from the right. 'Look at us' (see we can do terrorists as frass stories, too).

That's as far as I got. I don't care whether they paint the slime as a sweetened fruit drink. Or the inside bottom of the outside trash can. It's still the New York Times. Dress, nylon, and pumps. Still a slut, Still a whore, always will be (with apologies to streetwalkers everywhere).

From Tapes, a Chilling Voice of Islamic Radicalism in Europe

MILAN - Playing an Internet video one evening last year, an Egyptian radical living in Milan reveled as the head of an American, Nicholas Berg, was sawed off by his Iraqi captors.

"Go to hell, enemy of God!" shouted the man, Rabei Osman Sayed Ahmed, as Mr. Berg's screams were broadcast. "Kill him! Kill him! Yes, like that! Cut his throat properly. Cut his head off! If I had been there, I would have burned him to make him already feel what hell was like. Cut off his head! God is great! God is great!"

Yahia Ragheh, the Egyptian would-be suicide bomber sitting by Mr. Ahmed's side, clearly felt uncomfortable. "Isn't it a sin?" he asked.

"Who said that?" Mr. Ahmed shot back. "It is never a sin!" He added: "We hope that even their parents will come to the same end. Dogs, all of them, all of them.
