The way the media has played this story out, it would seem that thousands have been killed by these bastards, but the total is some what small. Maybe its a non-story after all.

November 17, 2004
SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

Following is a list of foreign hostages known to have been killed:

AMERICANS

- Jack Hensley and Eugene Armstrong, employees of a Gulf-based contractor, were beheaded by al-Qaeda-linked militants demanding the release of Iraqi women prisoners. They were seized with British colleague Kenneth Bigley on September 16.

- Nicholas Berg, 26, a Jewish-American businessman was beheaded by al-Qaeda-linked militants in May after being kidnapped the previous month.

BRITONS

- The family of Margaret Hassan, a British-Irish aid worker, said today she had probably been killed by her captors. A video received but not broadcast by the Al-Jazeera channel showed a blindfolded woman being shot. The British government also said she was probably dead.

- On October 8, the family of Kenneth Bigley, an employee of a Gulf-based contractor, said it had "absolute proof" that he was killed by his abductors.

BULGARIANS

- On August 11, Bulgaria confirmed that truck driver Ivailo Kepov, 32, had been beheaded by a group linked to the al-Qaeda network. He and another truck driver, Georgy Lazov, 30, were kidnapped on July 8 near Mosul.

- Lazov was also beheaded and his body identified on July 22 after it was found floating in the River Tigris.

ITALIANS

- On August 26, the so-called Islamic Army in Iraq said it executed Italian journalist Enzo Baldoni, who went missing with two French reporters.

- In April, Fabrizio Quattrocchi, one of four private security contractors who were kidnapped, was shot dead. The others werefreed in June during an operation by US-led forces.

LEBANESE

MACEDONIANS

NEPALIS

PAKISTANIS

- In late July, migrant workers Sajid Naeem, 29, and Azad Hussein Khan, 49, were killed by Islamic militants.

SOUTH KOREANS

- In June, Islamic militants beheaded Kim Sun-Il, 30, after the South Korean government rejected an ultimatum to scrap plans to deploy more than 3,000 troops to Iraq and withdraw over 600 already in the country.

TURKS

- On September 13, grisly footage of the execution of Turkish trucker Durmus Kumdereli was posted on an Islamist website.

- On September 2, militants said they had killed three other Turkish drivers, as the bodies of three Turks were found on the roadside north of Baghdad.

- Turkish driver Murat Yuce was executed and a video of his killing was released on August 2.

I can find no reference to a "beheading" done by the coalition...lets focus on how low these "insurgents will go

BEIRUT, Lebanon Gunmen in Iraq have abducted a 7-year-old Lebanese boy and are demanding $150,000 for his release, Lebanon's official news agency reported Sunday.

Are you kidding me? The coalition does not kidnap innocents and inflict harm. Are you referring to the prisoner abuse scandals? The prisoners of War? The same people that are out to kill american soldiers?

Just in case you missed it...War prisoners. They deserve to be dead, yet we house them, feed them, and provide them with meds so they can be rightfully tried in a military court. We do all this for the SAME people that would place a bullet through the head of any american soldier in the name of Allah.

Give me a break man.

When I read about things like that, I find it very difficult to sympithise with the cause they are figthing for.

These people clearly lack any knowledge on how to go about gaining popular support within the international community.

Obviously you did not understand me. I know there isn't a list; that was my point
