Don’t these guys know that Islam forbids beheading? After all, that’s what so many talking heads (unbeheaded) told us on the news shows during the spate of beheadings in Iraq.
In fact, these men are acting in accord with Qur’an 47:4, which tells believers to “strike the necks” of the unbelievers.
“Militants behead US ‘collaborators,'” from AFP, with thanks to JE:
SUSPECTED pro-Taliban militants beheaded two tribesmen in a remote part of Pakistan for allegedly working for US forces across the border in Afghanistan, officials said today.
Gunmen captured one of the tribesmen, who had been supplying food to US troops in Afghanistan, and killed him in the town of Khar Qamar in the restive North Waziristan region on yesterday, a security official said.
“They beheaded the man and fled in his vehicle,” the official said on condition of anonymity. “He was well known as someone who supplied food to the Americans.”
Residents also found the headless body of a man in Madhakhel, another town in the region where Pakistani forces have been battling Taliban fugitives and al-Qaeda linked militants, the official added.
A note found near the body claimed the slain man was a US spy. “All those working as US spies will face the same fate,” the official quoted the note as saying.
