The chilling words of two Italian-based Muslim extremists were released today as part of a 182 page indictment brought against them by Italian authorities, from The New Duranty Times:
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.
Yahia Ragheh, foreground, and Rabei Osman Sayed Ahmed being led into a Milan court last month, charged with ties to a terror network.
Rabei Osman Sayed Ahmed’s computer had a picture of a briefcase bomb that could be set off by a cellphone.
“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. You simply need to be convinced when you make the decision.”
