SYRIA: More beheadings of Christians, one a Catholic priest, by al Qaeda-linked terrorist groups in June of 2013 (WARNING: Extremely Graphic)

bloody-knifeRegular BNI readers have seen this, but for all the new people who have found their way to BNI because of the beheading of an American journalist, here are a few you probably missed: Three Christians were beheaded, one of them a Catholic priest, Franciscan Father Francois Murad, now confirmed by the Vatican, whom the terrorists accused of collaborating with the Assad regime.

Catholic.org (h/t Paul P)  This should make it clear to Christians around the world what jihadists are about. Make no mistake. Catholics and Christians around the globe are under dire threat, particularly from the spread of militant Islam. Until the threat is recognized and taken seriously, martyrdoms like this will continue. Apparently Father Murad is the first one beheaded in the below video.

Listen to the “Allahu Akbars” of the cheering crowd of spectators. Families bring their children to watch the gruesome beheadings by al-Qaeda-linked ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra. The dull knife used is a trademark of al-Qaeda.
