These daylight executions seem to be all the rage these days as the terrorists are trying to find the most shocking thing they can do right before the upcoming January 30, 2005 Iraqi elections.
A few days ago there was a daytime beheading of an Iraqi Policeman on the streets of Ramadi. Then a video of two Iraqi truck drivers being beheaded was released on the Internet, followed by another tape from Abu Musab al-Zarqawi declaring a "bitter war" on democracy and Election Day.
Today we have the releasing of a video of an Egyptian truck driver being shot, execution style, on the street in broad daylight.

Supporters of Iraq's most wanted man, Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, have executed an Egyptian driver on an Iraqi street in broad daylight, according to a video shown on a web site.
The grisly video shows a young man, identified as Ibrahim Mohamed Ismail, on his knees, handcuffed and blindfolded on a street.
A masked man shoots him in the head.
Mr Ismail was shown earlier saying he worked for a Kuwaiti company identified as Al-Shallahi, which provides US forces with drinking water.
He urged urging his compatriots not to come to Iraq or work for the Americans.
"Despite all the warnings from the mujahedeen... these apostates continue to help the occupier shed the blood of those who refuse to submit," the militants, identifying themselves as members of Zarqawi's Al Qaeda Group in the Land of Two Rivers, said.
