Imam Mohamad Adam El-Sheikh, co-founder and chief cleric at the Dar Al Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, VA, says “beheadings are not mentioned in the Koran at all.” How odd, then, that beheading is so widely practiced by jihadists.

“Militants decapitate Afghan ‘spy’ in Pakistan,” from Reuters (thanks to JE):
SUSPECTED Islamist militants decapitated an Afghan man in a volatile Pakistani tribal region on suspicion of being a spy for the United States, intelligence officials and residents said.
The killing was the latest in surging violence around the North Waziristan region on the Afghan border after militants in July scrapped a 10-month old peace agreement with the government.
Residents found the body with a severed head, hands and legs dumped on a roadside on the outskirts of Miranshah, the region’s main town, on Sunday morning.
“The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom.” (Qur’an 5:33)
A note found lying near the body asked people not to attend the funeral for the slain man.
“The note said that Rehman confessed to spying for the United States and he was being paid $200 for the job,” an intelligence official in Miranshah said.
