Denouncing the victim, Ghulam Nabi, as an American spy (in a videotape making the rounds in Pakistan), a 12 year old Pakistani boy:
"hacks off the captive's head to cries of "God is great!" and hoists it in triumph by the hair", then "a continuous 2 1/2-minute shot shows the victim lying on his side on a patch of rubble-strewn ground. A man holds Nabi by his beard while the boy, wearing a camouflage military jacket and oversized white sneakers, cuts into the throat. Other men and boys call out "Allahu akbar!" -- "God is great!" -- as blood spurts from the wound.The film, overlain with jihadi songs, then shows the boy hacking and slashing at the man's neck until the head is severed."This is what the children of Islam are exposed to: despicable, barbarous acts of violence. Both as participants and observers. What hope is there for them, when they are taught, at such a young age, that killing is good and justified and ultimately rewardable in heaven.
And even though the victim was a Taliban fighter, militant himself (so no loss there), it still does not mitigate the horror of the fact that a mere child was the brutal executioner.
