Two collaborators with the “American enemy” beheaded on video. Note below: The “Al-Qaeda Group of Jihad.” “Allahu akbar.” “The implementation of God’s ruling.” Yet American Muslims, with increasing irritation (“We Muslims living in America are getting sick of this crap”), continue to insist that all this has nothing to do with Islam. If they devoted even half of the energy that they expend on enforcing political correctness in America to making it impossible for people like Zarqawi to act within the Islamic community worldwide, their protestations might be worth taking seriously. But since they don’t do this, their complaints are essentially just a smokescreen. (And of course, they no doubt know that people like Zarqawi have the texts of Islam on their side.) From AFP, with thanks to JE:
After making their “confessions” in front of a banner carrying the name of Zarqawi’s al-Qaeda Group of Jihad in the Land of Two Rivers, the video showed each man having his head cut off.
The severed heads were held aloft by the men’s slaughterers and put on their backs to shouts of Allahu Akbar, or God is greatest….
Zarqawi is Iraq’s most-wanted man and his group has repeatedly posted such videos showing what it calls “the implementation of God’s ruling” against Iraqi “apostates” or foreign hostages.
