That's what the man read before he was decapitated with a knife. While still conscious.
I don't want to live in a world where this happens. I don't want to live in a world where people can act like this. What the fuck did Nick Berg do to anyone that deserved that? What the fuck did Daniel Pearl do to anyone that deserved his death?
I want to be safe. I want to be able to go outside the boundaries of my state and feel safe. I want my brother, who has not spoken English in the last three weeks, because he didn't want to be identified as an American in a foreign country, to be able to travel freely. I want to be proud to be a Texan. I want to not have to worry about someone deciding that the Medical Center (a medical center?) or the Ship Channel or NASA are good strategic targets. I want everyone in the whole wide world to agree that cutting off a conscious man's head with a knife is not only not OK, it reduces us all as a species.
The motherfuckers who killed Nick Berk said "Allah Akbar" when they held up his head to the camera. "God is Great." Fuck Allah. Fuck God. If they had anything to do with this, they don't deserve worship or admiration or love. They deserve contempt and loathing and eradication. They deserve to be reviled in the world.
