On January 31, 2002, in Karachi, Pakistan, American journalist Daniel Pearl was decapitated by Al-Qaeda member Khalid Sheikh Mohammed:

On August 19, 2014, ISIS or Islamic State jihadists beheaded American journalist, “useful idiot” James Foley:

On Sept. 2, 2014, the Islamic State released a video showing the beheading of another American journalist, 31-year-old Steven Sotloff. As Sotloff struggles to get off his knees, the killer starts sawing at his neck with a knife:

But Muslims jihadists aren’t just beheading Pearl, Foley, and Sotloff, but are chopping off the heads of men, women, and even children.

Theodore Shoebat reports, Aug. 12, 2014, that “demons of hell are overtaking the land of Iraq.” ISIS jihadists are beheading Christian children and putting their heads on sticks. One Chaldean activist said:

They [ISIS] are systemically beheading children, and mothers, and fathers. The world hasn’t seen an evil like this for a generation. There’s actually a park in Mosul that they’ve actually beheaded children and put their heads on a stick… The letter that they sent out with those three items (convert, pay a fine or die), they did ask to pay a fine but actually after they pay a fine, they (ISIL militants) are actually taking over their wives and their daughters and making them into their wives. So really it’s convert or die, face death by the sword…

They’ve marked the red stamp of death on Christian homes and basically saying we know who you are and if you come back, you will get killed. That’s why we’re saying this is a Christian holocaust within our midst and the world community cannot turn a blind eye… They are absolutely killing every Christian they see. This is a genocide in every sense of the word. They want everyone to convert and they want Sharia law to be the law of the land.

Here’s why Muslims sink to the unimaginably barbaric method of beheading.

It’s in the Quran (8:12):

“When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts ofthose who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.”

This is the same Quran that Barack Obama repeatedly calls “holy” and from which he quotes: “As the holy Quran tells us . . . .  As the holy Quran teaches. . . .”

This is the same Islam about which President Ebola waxed eloquent on the call to prayer being “the prettiest sound on earth.”

Have you ever heard Obama rhapsodizing about how lovely the sound of church bells ringing; or referred to the Bible as “holy”; or quoted again and again from the Bible; or lauded the Judeo-Christian western civilization?

The church he attended in Chicago (Rev. Wright’s) was more Black liberation theology than Christian. For every Christmas since he became president, Obama had NEVER gone to church on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. Even slacker Christians who don’t go to church on Sundays, manage to go on Christmas Day.

The beheadings of Foley and Sotloff were met with silence from the Obama White House. In fact, President Ebola ignored a shouted question about Sotloff as he left on Sept. 2 for his flight to Estonia to attend the 2014 NATO Summit.
