I saw the video. There is nothing fake about the beheading. If Mr. Berg appeared relaxed as he sat, I think, it was because he had no inkling of what they were going to do to him. The video was edited. It was transferred, copied and what is out there is probably several generations from the original and poor quality. I am sure the original is even more gruesome. You can hear Mr. Berg scream, a few seconds before the verdugo grabbed him by the hair, and the second hooded man on the left pushed him down on his side, the first man (from left to right,) held his torso down. It took about 40 (?) seconds from the first slash according to the running time on the video. Mr. Berg was still screaming until his vocal chords were severed. The last sound heard coming from Mr. Berg is what is referred to in medical term as the "death rasp." His excutioners, and I suppose witnesses not seen in the video were screaming something about Allah. Then silence. It took several more sawing like motions to severe the head from the torso. Take a good look
Rotate Holofernes so he is facing down and there you have it. As I child, I saw the Japanese behead 3 civilians. The Samurai method is swift and clean. And so was the guillotine and the ax, I suppose. So swift was the decapitation that it appeared to me the rest of the body was still alive. It is gruesome. My stomach rumbled in
because this was a death scene. But I am used to seeing operations, trauma room scenes, surgical procedures of all kinds. This is a horrible way to die, or to kill someone. There was so much hate in the body language of the executioners. Its like they were saying: "You want to know what revenge is? Here take a good look at what we are capable of doing."
Would you like to tell me why you think the video is a hoax?
