All discussions about whether these beheadings have anything to do with Islam should immediately cease and desist. ‘ISIS lays out five Islamic reasons, based on quranic teachings, to justify the beheadings of American and British captives.’

International Business Times (via Religion of Peace) In reply to the outburst over the beheading of British aid worker Alan Henning, the Islamic State has released a five point explanation, especially meant for the Muslims to justify the brutal killing.
The five reasons aim to lay down an explanation based on Islamic principles to “guide the permissibility of killing the Prisoners.” Using views and opinions laid down by Islamic scholars, the ISIS statement tries to clarify to its followers that as per the Islamic dictates it has the right to behead or do what it wants with its prisoners.
The Sunni militant group that has taken control of several parts of Syria and Iraq wants to establish an Islamic State governed purely on principles of Sharia law. The ISIS guide tells the “faithful” on how to reply to those who say that prisoners in Islam are not killed but rather shown compassion.
(1) The first argument notes that all Mushrik (anyone who worship any other God other than Allah, which includes the Shias, Yazidis, the Kurds) can neither be granted amnesty nor be ransomed off. Quoting a passage from Surah Al-Anfal (The Spoils of War), it says: “Punish them severely in order to disperse those who are behind them, so that they may learn a lesson.”
(2) The second argument states the reason that a “kufaar” (including Jews and Christians) has to be killed is that if they are not killed, they will later return and pose a threat to Islam.
(3) The third argument is that until and unless a prisoner says subhaanahu wa ta’ala, he can neither be shown generosity and freed without ransom nor be set free after paying a ransom.
(4) The fourth is that amnesty and ransom are possible only after the killing of a large number. So if a captive was imprisoned after that, the Imam has a choice to kill him or (do) otherwise.
(5) The fifth argument is that the Imam or someone acting on his behalf can choose between killing, amnesty, ransom or enslaving the prisoner.
This disturbing video (actual beheading part is blurred) has surfaced showing how some members of the Islamic terrorist group, Boko Haram, decapitated a Nigerian Air Force officer in Borno State and paraded his head in a jubilant display.
The victim, who was extensively interrogated before his gruesome killing, identified himself as Umar Abubakar, disclosing that he was a member of Section 9 of the Nigerian armed forces engaged in counter-insurgency measures against Boko Haram. In the video clip, the insurgents asked their victim to state his monthly pay to which he replied N40,000. The insurgents displayed their victim’s identity card, chanting that the world should know that Allah had given them an enemy.
“So you were sent to kill Boko Haram? And you are serving the state instead of Allah? We are members of Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati Wal-Jihad and Allah has given us an infidel today,” one of the Islamist sect’s leaders said in the video.
Thinking that reprieve would come his way, the captured military operative proclaimed himself a Muslim of Jama’atu Izalal extraction, but the insurgents, who spoke Hausa mixed with Kanuri, dismissed his plea. Their leader said: “No amount of prayers will save you, we will judge you according to the Quran.”
To the chants of “Allahu Akbar” the insurgents decapitated the hapless officer. After beheading their victim, the terrorists held up his severed head in jubilation as one of them used a mobile phone to film the gory scene. The victim’s headless body can be seen on the ground in a pool of blood, his hands tied with a rope.
Henning had been a dedicated humanitarian aid worker helping Muslims in Syria. See where it gets you? Next on the beheading list is another American.
ABC A video has surfaced online that appears to show the beheading of British captive Alan Henningby a purported member of the terror group ISIS, who then threatens the life of an American hostage.
“I am Alan Henning. Because of our Parliament’s decision to attack the Islamic State [ISIS], I, as a member of the British public, will now pay the price for that decision,” Henning says in the video, before his apparent executioner speaks.
“The blood of [fellow slain captive] David Haines was on your hands, [British Prime Minister David] Cameron,” the black clad militant says. “Alan Henning will also be slaughtered but his blood is on the hands of the British Parliament.”
Henning then appears to be killed. A quick edit follows and the executioner, apparently the same one as in the other videos, speaks. “The blood of David Haines was on your hand, Cameron. Alan Henning will also be slaughtered, but his blood is on the hands of British parliament.” The executioner then begins to saw at Henning’s neck as the video fades to black. The next image shows Henning’s dead body, with his severed head resting on his torso.
Near the end of the video another hostage is seen alive, identified as an American, as the militant says it’s right that his group targets Americans as the U.S. continues its aerial bombardment of ISIS targets.
“Obama, you have started your Arab bombardment… It’s only right that we continue to strike the next of your people,” the executioner says at the video’s end as a man, identified in the video as Peter Edward Kassig, an American, sits on his knees.
This is the kind of bleeding heart leftist stupidity that gets you beheaded.

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.
Reuters (h/t Martin) The head 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.
Reuters could not independently verify the information. Islamic State fighters have carried out several beheadings of enemy fighters and civilians in Syria and Iraq.
The beheadings are often carried out in public and with a message that any violent or non-violent dissent with not be tolerated.
When fighting Sunni Mulsim tribes in eastern Syria, Islamic State have used beheadings to scare local leaders to withdraw from the battlefield. Islamic State has also beheaded foreign journalists and an aid worker.
Saudi Arabia, a key U.S. ally in the war against ISIS, frequently beheads people for non-lethal crimes, and does it in the public square.
Saudi beheadings, on the other hand, which use a big sword, are much more civilized than the al-Qaeda/Taliban/ISIS style beheadings where they saw through the neck with what always appears to be a dull knife, thus prolonging the agony of the victim, a lot like Islamic Halal slaughter of animals.
A Taliban offensive in eastern Afghanistan, alleged to be aligned with ISIS, left an estimated 100 civilians dead or wounded in the past week, including some women and children who were beheaded, a provincial deputy governor said Friday.
CNN Hundreds of Taliban insurgents stormed Ghazni province’s Ajristan district last week, sparking intense, ongoing battles with Afghan security forces, said Mohammad Ali Ahmadi, Ghazni’s deputy governor. The Taliban have taken over a large number of villages in the area, he added.
The insurgents beheaded at least 15 people, including women and children, on Thursday, Ahmadi said.
NBC Militants aligned with ISIS launched a brutal offensive in Afghanistan alongside Taliban fighters that has left more than 100 people dead, local officials said Friday. Insurgents carrying the black flag of ISIS captured several villages in Ghazni province, according to Deputy Governor Ali Ahmad Ahmadi and Deputy Police Chief Gen. Asadullah Ensafi. Fifteen family members of local police officers were beheaded and at least 60 homes were set ablaze, Ahmadi said.
Ensafi later told NBC News that five Afghan helicopters had managed to drop Afghan special forces personnel to reinforce units already defending the area. He said the immediate threat to district’s center had been nullified. Members of the Taliban from different regions of the country were involved in the offensive, officials said.
According to Ahmadi, the drive was being led masked men wearing camouflage who carried the black flag of the ISIS and openly called themselves soldiers of “Daesh” — another name for ISIS. The officials said those militants did not speak any local languages. Reinforcements from the Afghan national army and provincial police had been stopped from reaching the area by Taliban ambushes.
Dr. Gareth Price, an Afghanistan expert at London’s Chatham House think tank, said it was possible that one section of the Taliban has decided to re-brand and copy the tactics of ISIS. “Given the factionalizing that seems to be happening in the Pakistani Taliban, it’s not surprising that a group has decided to show allegiance to the Islamic State,” he added.

Police say a woman who was killed by a co-worker at a food distribution center in suburban Oklahoma City was beheaded and another woman stabbed by Muslim employee. Witnesses say the suspect had been trying to convince co-workers to convert to Islam. More would have been attacked had he not been stopped by the COO of Vaugham Foods who was armed.
CBS (h/t Zilla) Colleen Hufford, 54, was beheaded and another woman, 43-year-old Traci Johnson, was stabbed. Both victims were employees of Vaughan Foods, but according to Lewis, it appeared the women were not targeted and were instead stabbed at random.
Moore Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis said Friday that 30-year-old Alton Nolen had been terminated from Vaughan Foods in Moore, where he worked as a production line employee, shortly before the incident took place on Thursday afternoon.
Lewis said Nolen exited the building after being fired and went to the parking lot where he drove his vehicle to the front of the business and hit another car. Nolen then walked into the front office and began attacking a woman with a standard knife used in the business, Lewis said.
Mark Vaughn, an off-duty officer who also serves as chief operating officer of the business, shot Nolen as he was stabbing Johnson. Sgt. Lewis touted Vaughn as a hero Friday and said he saved Johnson’s life.”It could have gotten a lot worse. This guy wasn’t going to stop,” said Lewis.
Johnson and Nolen were still hospitalized Friday and were said to be in stable condition. According to Lewis, statements were made to investigators that Nolen had recently converted to Islam and had been trying to convince employees to convert to as well.
The FBI is involved in the investigation and is currently conducting a background investigation into Nolen, Lewis said. According to the Oklahoma Department of Corrections website, Nolen has a criminal history dating back to 2006 that includes charges of possession of a controlled substance and assault and battery on a police officer.
He was imprisoned from April 2011 to March 2013 and is currently listed as being on probation.
The Department of Corrections describes Nolen as having several tattoos, including a picture of Jesus Christ on his chest, praying hands on his arm and an inscription on his abdomen that says, “As-Salaamu Ataikum,” an Arabic greeting often used by Muslims translating to, “Peace be upon you.”

UPDATE: Beheading Suspect Now Investigated As An Enraged Muslim Convert
Western Journalism Alton Alexander Nolen, a 30-year-old Oklahoma man, was fired from his job at a food processing plant in Moore, OK, just before a bloody rampage began — one that has authorities seriously looking into whether Nolen’s reported conversion to Islam may have played a part in the gruesome crimes they allege Nolen committed.
CNN reports that Police Sgt. Lewis has also confirmed for reporters what had been suggested in earlier news accounts of the horrific beheading — that the suspect was apparently a recent convert to Islam who tried to get others in the plant to convert as well:
Nolen recently had been trying to convert co-workers to Islam, Lewis added during a Friday press conference. “After conducting interviews with co-workers of Nolen’s, information was obtained that he recently started trying to convert some of his coworkers to the Muslim religion.”
A report on foxnews.com supports the information that the suspect was a Muslim convert:
FBI officials are investigating a beheading at an Oklahoma food distribution center after co-workers said the suspect tried to convert them to Islam after his recent conversion.
UPDATE: Oklahoma Muslims don’t care about the victims, they are only concerned with the potential backlash they might face.
FOX News (h/t Opinionator) Saad Mohammad, a spokesman for the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, told NewsOK.com that leaders of the society’s mosque are taking security precautions to protect Muslims who gather there from any potential retaliatory violence.
Mohammad said anti-Muslim sentiments local residents may have could be heightened due to the beheadings and violence overseas by Islamic State militants. (One can only hope)
“They have this ISIS thing on their minds and now this guy has brought it to America,” Mohammad told the website.

NY Times The Frenchman — Hervé Gourdel, a 55-year-old mountaineering guide from Nice — was abducted in Algeria on Sunday by the terrorist group, known as Jund al-Khilafah. Mr. Gourdel had arrived only a day before on a trip to go hiking in Algeria’s northern mountains.
The terrorist group issued a statement after his abduction, saying that it was following the guidance of the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, which has seized large parts of Syria and Iraq and has called on its sympathizers to strike Westerners — especially the French — wherever they can.
In the statement, the Algerian group had demanded that President François Hollande of France cease his country’s intervention in Syria within 24 hours or face seeing Mr. Gourdel killed.
In the video, Mr. Gourdel is shown kneeling before four armed captors with his hands bound behind his back. His bony shoulders poke forward, and he stares at the ground as his captors read a script announcing that he will be killed. They then wrestle him to the ground and place a knife at his throat. The video then cuts to an image of his decapitated body, and shows the captors holding his severed head.
The killing of Mr. Gourdel signals that the Islamic State’s practice of beheading Western captives for propaganda purposes has spread beyond the area it controls in Syria. Numerous smaller factions in the Middle East and elsewhere have pledged allegiance to the group.
Separately, a militant group in the Philippines, Abu Sayyaf, has announced that it is holding two German citizens and has threatened to kill them if Germany does not back out of the intervention in Syria.
The photo is posted on Mujahidah Bint Usama’s Twitter page and shows her wearing a white lab coat, veil and holding her arm outstretched, with what appears to be a decapitated head. The photo is captioned “Dream Job.. A Terrorist Doc” which she has added a smiley face song and two hearts to.
UK Daily Star On the description of herself she has a quote from Anwar al-Awlaki – a high profile terrorist for al-Qaeda. It reads: “Running away from Jihād will not save you from death. You can die as a coward or you can die as a martyr.”
The jihadi is just one of a frighteningly increasing number of British women who have travelled to Syria and Iraq to fight for the IS. Many have been put in charge of stamping out “immoral” behavior at the center of the terror group, while at the same time running brothels full of non-Muslim women to service ISIS fighters.
They have joined the feared al-Khansaa brigade – an all female force intent on hunting down those who do not strictly follow sharia-law. They brigade operates in Raqqa – the Syrian city where the IS set up its headquarters and close to where American hostages James Foley and Steven Sotloff are believed to have been executed.
Allegedly, these beheadings are not by ISIS but other ‘rebel’ groups that include Jabhat al-Nusra Front and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) whom Obama wants to arm and fund with $500 million. As I am unable to confirm exactly who did this, I can only say for certain that it was done by Muslims.
The website that posted these photos claims: The pictures are not from ISIS, but rather are the so-called “seculars and moderates” backed by the West. The people they are beheading are Syrian troops and civilians accused of being Christians and/or Alawites and supporters of the Assad regime.
A new video from the Islamic State has emerged claiming to show the beheading of British man David Haines and also allegedly threatens America and her allies for actions in the Middle East.
Yahoo News (h/t Marcia) The Islamic State jihadist group claimed it executed British aid worker David Haines, in retaliation for British leader David Cameron entering a coalition with the United States against the militants. The video is directed towards Cameron, with the executioner warning: “For being a lapdog, Cameron, you will drag your people into another bloody and unwinnable war.”
“You followed Americans into Iraq, following the trend of British Prime Ministers who cannot find the courage to say no to Americans,” the executioner, speaking in a British accent, allegedly says.
If confirmed, this would be the third such execution in recent weeks, after two US journalists taken hostage in Syria were shown murdered. The video entitled, “A Message to the Allies of America,” opened with UK Prime Minister David Cameron talking about working with the Iraqi government and allied Kurdish Peshmerga forces to defeat Islamic State.
“This British man has to pay the price for your promise, Cameron, to arm the Peshmerga against the Islamic State,” said a masked man dressed in black with a British accent, standing over Haines, who was shown kneeling and wearing an orange jumpsuit.
The video then showed the beheading of the kneeling man. At the end of the video, another hostage, Alan Henning, was shown and the masked man said he would be killed if Cameron continues to support the fight against Islamic State.
The purported executioner appeared to be the same British-accented man who appeared in videos with Foley and Sotloff, and it showed a similar desert setting. In both videos, the captives wore orange jumpsuits. “Unfortunately, it is we the British public, that in the end that will pay the price for our parliaments selfish decisions.”, the alleged killer says. “This British man has to pay the price for your promise, Cameron.”
“Ironically, he has spent a decade of his life serving under the same Royal Air Force that is responsible for delivering those arms. Your evil alliance with America which continues to strike the Muslims of Iraq and most recently bombed the Haditha Dam will only accelerate your destruction.”
