http://www.cnn.com/2004/WORLD/meast/04/14/iraq.hostages.int/index.html

(CNN) -- The Al-Jazeera TV network says it has received a videotape allegedly showing the killing in Iraq of one of a group of four Italian hostages.

The group says the other three hostages also will be killed if their demands are not met, the TV station said.

In a statement which Al-Jazeera says was delivered with the tape, the hostage takers, calling themselves "The Mujahedeen Brigade," blame Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi for the fate of the hostage.

CNN has not seen the tape and has no way of determining if it is authentic.

The Italian government has said it has no confirmation of the killing.

"We hope it's not true," said Foreign Minister Franco Frattini on Italian state television Wednesday.

Al-Jazeera said it did not broadcast the tape because it was too graphic.
no comment.. ;(

how can that work? when their GOAL is to blow themselves up, uhm, it kinda defeats the whole "you wanna keep living?" hostage principle.

Hearing and reading about this kind of stuff pisses me off!! :mad: Yea it's war and war is dirty. People gonna get killed. If they're gonna kill them, why not give 'em a good clean kill? You know... like a bullet in the head or something.

I can only imagine what they did to the poor Italian dude. :cry: Makes me sick.

I saw the tape of the killing of that Jewish reporter in Pakistan were he was slit from ear to ear like a goat and beheaded so I can imagine what this tape looks like.

Too graphic?

More like too damning to the terrorists.

They LIKE showing dead Iraqis, but don't show dead innocent hostages....

good point - if it doesn't meet THEIR agenda, they won't play it. (just like here, of course).

it would give sympathy to our side - which they certainly do NOT want to risk...

Well we start taking hostages from the mullah ranks and then threaten to use that pig lard trick that was described in the other post here. That should do the trick. Bad mullah! Telling your flock to fight and kill infidels, well, NO 99 VIRGINS FOR YOU! NO PARADISE FOR YOU! NO MARTYRDOM FOR YOU! Here, have some more lard! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :thumbup:

This got me thinking: Al Jazeera DOES like showing dead Iraqis because it shows how mean the Americans are.

Al Jazeera DOESN'T like showing dead Americans or coalition forces because it shows how mean the terrorists are.

"Liberal" TV DOESN'T like showing anybody dead because it might show our side OR their side to be mean.

Fox News DOESN'T like showing anybody dead because either makes the President look bad either way.

Which group is the most dishonest?
