This has nothing to do with Islam, of course. It’s just odd how so-called Muslims misunderstand Islam in exactly the same way, from Syria to Oklahoma City. Somehow they get the crazy, Islamophobic, obviously false notion that “when you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks” (Qur’an 47:4) means “when you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks.” I mean, how moronic can you get?
“Islamic State Beheads Seven Men, Three Women in Syria: Human Rights Group,” Reuters, October 1, 2014:
Beirut: Islamic State beheaded seven men and three women in a northern Kurdish area of Syria, a human rights monitoring group said on Wednesday, part of what it described as a campaign to frighten residents resisting the militant group’s advance.
The head [Poor choice of words. — RS] of the Syrian Observatory for Human, Rights Rami Abdulrahman, said five anti-Islamic State Kurdish fighters, including three women, and four Syrian Arab rebels were detained and beheaded on Tuesday 14 km (8 miles) west of Kobani, a Kurdish town besieged by Islamic State near the Turkish border.
He said a Kurdish male civilian was also beheaded.
“I don’t know why they were arrested or beheaded. Only the Islamic State knows why. They want to scare people,” he said….
Perhaps they are trying to “strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah,” as per Qur’an 8:60.
