UPDATE 5/10: Army of Ansar al-Sunna website releases images of Japanese hostage Akihiko Saito. Images, story, and link to website.
-------------------------------------------
Very very odd. The man who is murdered is identified as a Shiite cleric named Al-Sayed Alaa al-Malki, a follower of the radical cleric Muqtada al-Sadr. Perhaps there are other, less apparent, reasons that al-Sadr has made this latest deal with the Alawi's Provisional Authority? Is it possible that al-Sadr's Shiite Muqti Army is already engaged in sectarian violence against the Sunni Army of Ansar al-Sunnah and Zarqawi's Tawhid and Jihad group? Just yesterday I reported a new beheading video released by the Army of Ansar al-Sunnah included one man who identified himself as a member of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's Tawhid and Jihad terrorist organization. Both are Sunni based terrorist organizations. Yahoo News:

A videotape surfaced on the Internet Tuesday showing what was said to be the confession and beheading of an Arab Shiite Muslim, presumably Iraqi, who was accused of serving the U.S. Army by "assassinating Sunni leaders."

The video's authenticity could not be verified, but it was posted in the name of the Ansar al-Sunna Army, on a Web site where such militant content is often released. It showed a man, who identified himself as Al-Sayed Alaa al-Malki, kneeling in front of two masked gunmen.

Two identification cards were hanging from the man's gray shirt. One of them bore the name al-Malki and said "local sheik." It also had a photograph that showed him wearing a black robe and a white turban similar to those worn by Shiite clerics.

With a bruised face and dark circles beneath his eyes, the bearded, heavyset man spoke in a shaky voice of ties to a Shiite militia and to a former U.S. military commander in Iraq. Then, he was shown held down on his back, his face covered with a white sheet and his head being cut off. Afterward, the sheet was removed to show his face....

In the video posted Tuesday, the man, whose accent was Iraqi, said he was a follower of Iraqi Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr. He said he "had close relationship with the Sadr army ... and relations with political leaders such as the (Lt. Gen. Ricardo) Sanchez."...

The video also showed the man confessing to working with an American military officer named Paul, with whom he allegedly established a "Citizens Claims Office" that was used as a cover "to collect and buy weapons from the street, and sell them to the American army."

A statement purportedly from Ansar al-Sunna Army that accompanied the video said al-Malki was killed because "he used the Citizens Claims Office as an underground tunnel — during his work with the American forces — to assassinate a number of Sunni leaders."

I have the video and images from it are posted below. You can download it from the Terrorist Media website, but there is a subscription required. Chad Evans at In the Bullpen is also hosting the video, just CLICK TO THIS POST and scroll down for it.

And if one more person e-mails me explaining that beheading is 'un-Islamic', I'm going to pop a nut. Seriously, beheading is a prescribed and accepted method of execution in Sharia law. Perhaps it went out of vogue for awhile, but it's back and with all the force of an Islamic pop-culture revolution. How else do you explain a ten year old Muslim boy in England playing the beheading game?

shiiteid.jpgIn addition to the videotaped murder of an Iraqi Shiite cleric released today and the videotaped murder of a Turkish reconstruction worker and his Iraqi translator yesterdy [information, links to video, and images here], the Army of Ansar al Sunnah murdered an Iraqi named Barie Nafi'a Daoud Ibrahim on Oct. 2nd [images, link to video, and information here]. The same group murdered three Iraqis on September 16th (information, links to video, and images here). On August 31st, these terrorists executed 12 hostages from Nepal, one of them by beheading (information, links to video, and images here). On August 11th the group beheaded a man they claimed was a CIA agent (information and images here) and on August 25th the group beheaded a second alleged CIA agent (information and images here). May God speed the victims' souls to heaven, and may His wrath reign down upon the spineless terrorists in the form of a MOAB or other appropriately large ordinance.

What follows are graphic images from this beheading video. Why do I show them? To provide context. We are not fighting a 'resistance movement' in Iraq. We are fighting terrorists bent on dominating the world and restoring the world-wide Islamic state.
