American Muslims denounce beheading


Recommended Posts

Washington-AP -- A Washington-based Muslim advocacy group is condemning the beheading of an American businessman in Iraq as a "cold-blooded murder".

Rabiah Ahmed (RAH-bee-uh AM'-id) of the Council for American-Islamic Relations says Muslims are especially horrified that Nick Berg's killers shouted "God is great!" and claimed to be acting in the name of Islam.

The militants are shown on the Internet declaring that "the dignity of the Muslim men and women" abused by U-S troops in an Iraqi prison cannot be "redeemed except by blood and souls."

Ahmed says Berg's beheading was "in opposition with what Islam stands for." She adds that American Muslims wish to extend their prayers, condolences and support to Berg's family.
