‘Who ever thought that we would be talking
about an epidemic of beheading early in the 21st century? Unfortunately,
it appears that beheading is making a huge comeback and has become a favorite
form of execution all over the world. Recently we have seen brutal
beheadings in the Middle East, in
The following are 11 examples that show that beheading has become a favorite form of execution all over the world....
people don't connect "beheadings" with North America, but the truth
is that they happen very often down in
For example, just a few weeks ago 49 corpses without heads were found near the city of Monterrey, Mexico. It has become common practice for drug cartels to behead their enemies once they execute them.
In another shocking incident, 18 decapitated corpses were recently discovered near the city of Guadalajara, Mexico.
#2 You don't hear about it in the mainstream media, but it is
quite common for Muslims that have converted to Christianity to be beheaded for
their faith by gangs of vigilantes in many areas of the
absolutely brutal beheading that was recently shown on "
I am writing about it because I think that it is important that people understand what is really going on out there.
The following is a description of what happens in the video from a recent article by Raymond Ibrahim....
A young man appears held down by masked men. His head is pulled back, with a knife to his throat. He does not struggle and appears resigned to his fate. Speaking in Arabic, the background speaker, or "narrator," chants a number of Muslim prayers and supplications, mostly condemning Christianity, which, because of the Trinity, is referred to as a polytheistic faith: "Let Allah be avenged on the polytheist apostate"; "Allah empower your religion, make it victorious against the polytheists"; "Allah, defeat the infidels at the hands of the Muslims," and "There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger."
Then, to cries of "Allahu Akbar!"— Allah is greater!"—the masked man holding the knife to the apostate's throat begins to slice away, severing the head completely after approximately one minute of graphic knife-carving, as the victim drowns in blood. Finally, the severed head is held aloft to more Islamic slogans of victory.
If you really want to watch the video, you can find it right here. YouTube has put an advisory on the video for good reason.
Once again, it is very hard to write about this, but the truth is that this kind of extreme tyranny needs to be exposed.

#6 A really
weird beheading took place up in
Vince Li, the man who beheaded and cannibalized a fellow passenger on a Greyhound bus in Canada, has won the right to be allowed to leave the grounds of the mental hospital where he is being kept, a criminal review board ruled Thursday.
Does anyone else find it disturbing that he has been allowed to mix with the general public again so quickly?
Taliban fighters killed 14 Pakistani soldiers in a key militant sanctuary along the Afghan border, beheaded all but one of them and hung two of the heads from wooden poles in the center of town, officials said Monday.
Juma Nuradin Kamil, a Christian convert from Islam, was kidnapped and
later, on Sept 2, found decapitated on the outskirts of Hudur
City in Bakool region, in southwestern
On Aug 21 Kamil was forced into a car by three suspected Islamic extremists from the al Shabaab terrorist group. Members of his community thoroughly combed the area looking for him.

#9 Even the
video released in recent weeks, and made available to WORLD this week by two
separate Afghan sources, shows four Afghan militants beheading a man believed
to be a Christian in
militants, who claim to be Taliban, captured the victim, a man in his 40s named
Abdul Latif (according to Obaid
Christ, who provided translation of the video), earlier this year from his
village outside Enjeel, a town south of
In the two-minute video, the men, wearing explosive belts (or suicide vests) and kaffiya head scarves to cover their faces, recite verses from the Quran while forcing Latif to the ground and pinning him with their feet. “You who are joined with pagans . . . your sentence [is] to be beheaded,” read one of the militants in Farsi from what looked like a paper decree. “Whoever changes his religion should be executed.” The passages refer to Sura 8:12 (“I will instill terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks . . .”) and the hadiths, or sayings of Mohammed.
As Latif fought his captors from the ground, one of the militants thrust a medium-sized blade into the side of his neck. With blood flowing onto the ground the militants shouted “Allahu Akhbar” or “God is great” over and over until Latif was fully beheaded and his head was placed on top of his chest.

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus told reporters Monday that Otty Sanchez's attack on her son, Scott Wesley Buchholtz-Sanchez, was "too heinous" to fully discuss.
But he says Sanchez ate part of the newborn's brain and bit off three of his toes before stabbing herself twice.
The goal of these examples is not to gross everyone out.
Rather, the goal is to get everyone to realize that large numbers of people are being brutally slaughtered all over the globe. Very often, they are being slaughtered because of what they believe.
And another goal of this article is to also get everyone thinking about what they would do in a similar situation.
If you were faced with either renouncing what you believe or losing your head, what would you choose?
Is what you believe worth dying for?
You won't hear about it much in the mainstream media, but the truth is that every single day large numbers of people are being brutally killed for what they believe all over the world.
Someday you may be forced to make a similar choice.
I hope that you are ready when that day arrives.
