Terrorists Murder Civilians in Iraq on Video (Images)


A new video released by the Army of Ansar al-Sunnah shows insurgents in Iraq committing attrocities contrary to the Geneva Conventions. The video shows three Arab civilians being murdered by the group. The video can be seen here.

The terror organization calls the murders 'executions' after condemning the three for 'apostasy'. The maximum penalty for apostasy under Islamic, or Sharia, law is death.

After the three 'confess' to the 'crime' of working in a civilian capacity for the U.S. in Iraq, the three are shot in the head with pistols. Their bodies fall into a grave which has already been dug.

Unlike U.S. and other Coalition forces who have been accused of Geneva Convention violations, the Army of Ansar al-Sunna openly boasts of this murder. So far, the U.S. has prosecuted over two-dozen American soldiers over the Abu Ghraib scandal alone.

The Army of Ansar al-Sunnah has released dozens of similar videos in the past. It is common practice for the group to murder any civilians working in any capacity with the Iraqi government.

The group is based in Northern Iraq in areas with large Kurdish minorities. It is thought to have split off from the more well known Ansar al-Islam, once part of the larger al Qaeda network. The head of al Qaeda in Mesopotamia, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, had been in Iraq prior to the U.S. led liberation working with the group. The U.S. operation all but annhialated the group, with Arab remnants forming Tawhid and Jihad (later al Qaeda) and Kurdish remnants forming Ansar al-Sunnah. Peshmirga forces have effectively wiped out al-Sunnah remnants in Kurdistan.

Where is the outrage? Where are the protests? Where is the U.N. investigation?


Reuters:

A statement accompanying the recording said the video showed "the confessions of three apostates working in ... a company dealing with American forces that destroyed weapons and ammunition of the former Iraqi army".

"I'm Ammar Nasser ... I work with the Americans," said one man with long hair. The other two men made remarks in response to an off-camera speaker, but the audio was not clear.

Thanks to Doubletap for finding the video.
