Add Paul Johnson to the roster of the murdered

The Religion of Peace™ has done it again.

Al Qaeda militants beheaded an American engineer it had held hostage since last week, Al Arabiya television reported on Friday.
The network was quoting its correspondent in Saudi Arabia and gave no further details. Al-qaeda had given the Saudi government a Friday deadline to free jailed militants or it would kill Paul Johnson.

When are we going to realize that we will all face the same end as Daniel Pearl, Fabrizio Quattrocchi, Nick Berg, and Paul Johnson unless we get serious and wipe Islamism and its diehard practitioners from the face of the Earth?

UPDATE: Jeff Quinton of Backcountry Conservative is tracking the story as it breaks. So far, there are only pictures, not video (WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES).
UPDATE 2: AP reports that the terrorist ringleader responsible for Mr. Johnson’s death may have assumed room temperature. More from Fox News, which reports that two of his Islamozoid flunkies were killed too. The more, the merrier.
UPDATE 3: The Saudi Embassy offers its words of condolences. That’s sweet. How about not letting these scum go free this time? And the next time, and the next, and the next ….
UPDATE 4: The Al Qaeda scumbags responsible for kidnapping Mr. Johnson had help in setting up their roadblock from … wait for it … the Saudi government. I’m so shocked. *sigh*

    To all the people out there spouting cia coverup with the nick berg beheading. You know who you are,, shouting conspiracy, and citing some expert from Mexico city as saying it was the USA that really did it and not terrorist. Hmmmmm. Are you still saying the same thing now? Did anyone notice the orange jumpsuit Mr. Johnson was wearing? Was he sitting in a cheap plastic chair? Do you idiots that yelled conspiracy the first time think it happened again?? Does the fact that the Saudi government tracked the terrorists after getting their licence number from a witness who saw them dump Mr johnson’s body and kill them help to alleviate your conspiracy thought?? President Bush said it very aptly. We are fighting an evil people. We must respond with complete prejudice. If anyone needs eradicated from the earth for the sake of humanity, it is these vile creatures that claim they are in the religious right. They call us infedils. We should call them “deceased”
    To those of you Muslims that don’t believe in violence,,,, Do you believe enough in peace to do what is right or is it easier to just be quiet and harbor and help these terrorists???
    Puddle,, I apologize for venting on here, but enough is enough. Islamic ignorance must be stopped. The people of islam should be the ones to stop it, but it is becoming apparent that will not happen. To the muslims in America,, if you don’t like here,, then you are free to leave. If you believe in freedom and peace then you are welcome to stay. But don’t just do nothing,, End the violence.

    Know Your Enemies–The Sacred Muslim Practice of Beheading

    Frontpage Magazine has an excellent article on the Muslim practice of beheading.

    Hey guys it all goes further, At my job this evening a young man had just returned from a church service “incarcerated” and was talking to some others about the service when a man walked up to him and said, “I am sick of your religious talk” The other man hit him in the face with a closed fist and then continued to hit this man until this man had enough and fought back and very severely beat up the man that had first struck him. During my investigation, it was found that the man who had started the fight was a muslim. He did not want Christianity spread, so his immediate response was to strike the man. I am so glad that he didn’t have a car and some explosives. Does this sound familiar to anyone?? Islamic’s??? Peaceful religion????
    I learned a few things from this. 1. Even in mid America we have to deal with these issues. 2. Muslims thrive on using force, their Quran tells them to. 3. If you start a fight with one of us Christians “Infedils as you know us” then be prepared to get your ass whipped.
    I know this sounds kind of crass, but it is just a small version of the big picture.
    Mz. Rodriguez, thank you for reminding me of something as well. To the Johnson family. I, as well as my friends and family are so sorry for your loss.
    To the muslim extremists out there, you think to intimidate and scare us through your methods? Wrong! Take a hint, your days are numbered.
    All you are doing is strengthening our resolve.

    Alright, and your point is …? Yes, that behavior is morally wrong, as I’ve pointed out from the start. However, your post is trying to make it sound as if it’s just as morally wrong as sawing off someone’s head with a knife. It most emphatically is not.
