Yes, I know it’s the same joke over and over. Just in case you hadn’t noticed, I am trying to make a point. Anyway, it wasn’t a Baptist hideout, of course, it was an Islamic jihadist hideout. But it could just as well have been Baptists, right? Right? They’re secretly sharpening their knives even now. Or is it polishing their stones? What’s that? This was a jihad manual written by Muslims? Well, they’re enraged over the American occupation, doncha know. If we hadn’t perpetrated the outrages at Gitmo and Abu Ghraib, why, they would all be florists by now.
“Iraq: Kidnap and Decapitation Manual Found in Hideout,” from AKI, with thanks to Louise:
Baghdad, 23 June (AKI) – US Marines have found manuals on taking hostages and decapitation during a raid on a guerrilla hideout in the Iraqi village of Karabla, near the town of Qaim, close to the Syrian border. The Arab newspaper Al-Sharq al-Awsat reports that in the hideaway the troops also found several hostages who were being held there by Islamic militants. The hiding place was being used as a centre for the interrogation and torture of hostages, and contained electrodes and other instruments of torture.
The manuals found were used as Jihad (Holy War) handbooks. The first was titled: “How to choose the best hostage”, the second covered decapitation and was called: “Rules for cutting off the heads of infidels”, and the third manual, “principles of the philosophy of the Jihad”, was more theoretical.
