Exhibition Killings

Aaronovitch joins the fatwa.

"We should not broadcast images, appeals and statements that clearly vindicate the Nazi-like criminality of men like Zarqawi. Just the bald facts of the case and nothing more. We must stop being naive accomplices to exhibition killings."


In the interests of fairness I must point out that the Magna Mater beat him to it by a couple of days.

We are in a totally unprecedented situation, one for which all our existing rules are simply inadequate. I think the western media cannot avoid the fact that it is now being used -- appallingly -- as a weapon of war against the west.

UPDATE - Michael Gove is on the case too (via Mick Hartley).

Mick also links to this remarkable story.
