Horrible! Outrageous! Evil!

The al-Qa'ida so-called 'militants' (aka criminals and murderers) have carried out their threat to kill Paul Marshall Johnson, the 49-year old American hostage held in Saudi Arabia.

In this BBC article they did not commit the sin of calling what has been done an 'execution' (which was how it was described in the 10pm news bulletin on BBC1 television), which is at least something! It was not an 'execution', it was simple MURDER!!

I watched a plea for his life earlier today from his wife and I extend my sincere and heartfelt condolences to her and to all his family. Rest in Peace, Paul Marshall Johnson.

(There is much more I want to write, but now is not the time.)
