I wonder if the killers knew they were getting a "twofer", American and Jewish.

Yeah, it has been mentioned all over the radio for the past couple of days.

IIRC, his passport had stampings from Israel in it.

Figures that a southerner would not click to the name Berg being a shortened Jewish name.

Bet you the guys from NYC took if forgranted from day one.

That's why it was surprising that he had anti-semetic literature and a copy of the Q'ran on him when previously stopped by U.S. authorities in Iraq. Although, if you're jewish, it would make sense to have that on you if you're in any Arab country.

Yes, as a Jew, he had not accepted Jesus and will therefore burn in the lake of fire for all eternity.

Hey, Give us poor boys a break there TJ.
I got this fron a CNN article..If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck etc.
" Berg's body was flown to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware."

"A public memorial service for Berg will be held at 3:30 p.m. Friday at a synagogue, congregation Kesher Israel, in his home city of West Chester, Pennsylvania, said Carl Goldstein, who is with a funeral home in Philadelphia coordinating the service."

No insult intended there Bob. I just took it for granted the first time I heard the name is all.

I have alot of Jewish friends.

Man it was terrible what happened to him, but he wasn't very bright. Traveling alone in Iraq with no security at all.

I heard a recording of his father talking about their differing political views. His dad said the son was a big fan of Bush. His dad further stated it did not come between them. "He respected MY political views and I respected his RIGHT to have different views." So did He respect his son's Views ...or just his Right to have them? Small difference but it bears examination.

Hey shotar
Wake up and smell the coffee.

It not a religion it’s a race.

Yes, they knew he was Jewish just like they knew Pearl was.

What do you think Arabs are stupid and can’t figure things out?

I believe that is why the singled him out and murdered him.

I certainly shouldn't be an issue regarding this brutal murder of fellow countryman. That's for damn sure!

The genetics of middle eastern Arab/Muslims is practically identical to middle eastern Jews. They are the same race, just different religions.

The genetics, what that we all walk up right? Please!

So why do Jewish Americans refer to them self’s as such?

You might not know any thing about this being from Alabama.

I see you referred to Arab (race) and Muslim ( religion) together
You might want to take a trip to NJ or NY to get a little education.

But yes I do agree with you in the Middle East they are so much alike and hate each other so
much?????

I all most forget, yes I have Jewish friends and African American ones too.

Oh shit, please don't go down this path again!

He was American and that's enough.

Right now the company I represent, the GM is 6.2 blond blue eyed Jew, the sales manager is Palistinian decent Christian, one engineer is white as snow Argetinian decent, and another Polish decent and I'm a redneck from the south that after my family being here over 200 years has probably every race, creed, and religion in me. What are we? Americans!

I figured Berg may have been of Jewish decent but had no idea what his relgion was but suspected but you see I didn't give a hoot and shit.

Damn!
