Evil in God's name

BBC NEWS | World | Middle East | Iraq militants show 'crash video': "The cameraman focuses on two bodies. One appears to be dead and is badly charred.

The second person, wearing a blue flight suit, is alive but badly hurt.

The cameraman orders him to stand up, but the survivor says he has a broken leg and asks for help.

The militants appear to help him up, and tell him to run away.

Then they shoot him at point blank range and he collapses.

They continue to shoot the body, shouting 'Allahu Akbar' (God is Great)."

This summer I led a learning activity which portrayed this kind of evil in God's name. I thought then that the students who participated probably doubted whether things like this happen in the real world because they don't happen in the U.S.

They do happen.
