Qatar's Al-Jazeera television aired video footage on Sunday of what it said was the murder of US national Robert Jacob in the Saudi capital by suspected Al-Qaeda killers.
The body of a Western-dressed man is seen hitting the ground as several gunshots ring out.
The feet and legs of two men in civilian dress are also shown, apparently the assassins.
The scene is in the covered yard of a residential building where a four-wheel drive vehicle is parked in a garage space.
The footage was attributed to an Al-Qaeda terror cell, which claimed responsibility for the killing.
The video described the victim as "American Jew Robert Jacob, who worked for the spy group Vinnell".
Mr Jacob, 44, who worked for the US Vinnell Corp, which helps train the Saudi National Guard, was shot dead at his home in Riyadh on June 8. He was reportedly shot nine times in the head.
A US national was killed in a drive-by shooting and another American believed to have been kidnapped in the Saudi capital on Saturday amid a bloody campaign by Al-Qaeda to drive Western "infidels" out of the kingdom.
Of course, we won't see this on American tv. We wouldn't want to enrage anyone. < /sarc>
Why have we let al Jazeera continue to exist?
Here's the video right here:
Be warned, terrorist propaganda is included in the first segment of the video.
Horrible. I hope he didn't leave behind any children.
I wonder if Americans and other westerners working in Saudi are armed? And if not, why aren't they?
Hey they're just showing what their audience wants to see. Ratings, you know.
Is there any explanation for this?
Oh yea, it takes extra bullets to really really kill a Jew.(sick)
Which is why liberals won`t hold any protests since they are just as anti-semetic as the muslim cultists. Dan Pearl, Nick Berg and now Robert Jacob..still no protests still no protests still no protests like my tagline says...Hey after all even though Israel takes up 2/10ths of one percent of land in the middle east yet has 14 times the population density of all the other Muslim cultist nations, and is the only democracy among the Muslim cultist nations,Israels still gotta give up that land to the Muslim cultists. There`s just no room left in the rest of the middle east, and how dare the United States try to prevent Israel from being annihilated. Curious that Jews like Barbara Streisand could call herself a Jew yet be so incredibly anti semetic. I guess it`s the psychosis. "Bush is evil" but not the muslim cultists, right Babs? Lets make a movie for CBS bashing Reagan while he`s on his death bed, but let`s completely ignore 36 years of global terror and 50 years of blatant anti-semitism and terror by Islam and liberals against Israel for over 50 years.
Drop Moabs on Al-Jazeera.
Mr Jacobs is from my town here in southern Illinois. I am sort of glad we are not going to see this for his family's sake.
Can anyone clean up the image well enough to run the plates on the truck in the background. Heck that could something from a gang shooting in LA that these clowns picked up.
And Robert was not a Jew. He was a methodist, you idiotic Islamic crap.
I thought our close allies in the War on Terra don't allow Jews in their country.
Doesn't really matter. Saturday people or Sunday people or one of their own who questions. They are equal opportunity murderers.
If we shut them down, OUR press corps would go APOPLECTIC and accuse and report this administration's gestapo like tactics in censorship and TORTURE endlessly. GW would be baked, fried and roasted over open coals, and with the power that our COMMIE press has, it would be no time and GW's numbers would be in the teens.
I'd really rather not give the terrorists their glory by viewing the video. Thank you for posting it. I'm sure your intentions are pure.
I know it doesn't matter to them but it pisses me off that they can't even be friggin accurate in their proclamations. Just because the guy's last name is Jacobs they assume he is Jewish.
