Don't Look Away

On the other hand, don't look at this if you can't stomach graphic, grisly descriptions of what human beings are capable of doing to each other.

If you want to know the enemy, just skip the violent parts.

But don't look away.


Turns out that the video described is a hoax, sort of. It's a real beheading, but of a man in 2004. Don't look away, but look with clear eyes.
Just for the sake of clarity, Bahjat was murdered in a cruel way. The fact that this video is a hoax should not distract us from that fact. Whoever murdered her deserves the severist punishment available. [And by 'hoax' I do not mean to imply the video is fake, only its attribution. For some reason some Islamist scumbag thought it would be funny/scary/useful to send out an old video and label it 'Bahjat'.]
