  • Would you expect another country to honor your religious wishes if they had custody of you when you died?

  • i think it showed who the Bigger Person is. 'they' certainly wouldn't have shown respect...remember, they like to put heads up on stakes or rifles.

  • Why not?  He wasn't shot and killed because he was Muslim, he was shot and killed because he was a very evil man.  In this instance we do have to take somewhat of the High Road here and respect the religon he believed in.

  • Yes I think it was a good move. Killing him may potentially cause uproar enough with out adding disregarding his religion into the mix. IMPO. That would have been adding fuel to the already hot coals.

  • Well he was behind a plan that killed muslims as well as other religions, how many of them even got to bury thier loved ones at all? I think any respect for him went out the window, when he did what he did!

  • I'm sure he wasn't respecting Islamic law when he was doing what he was doing. If you want a proper funeral don't be a terrorist.

  • It would have been unwise to blatantly disrespect the religious beliefs of a man you just martyred.... There will be a backlash, but it would have significantly enraged his "followers" had we not.
    I ask this, why would it have been "right" to disrespect his beliefs?
