The Sacred Muslim Practice of Beheading

Posted by Peter

After Nick Berg, a Jewish-American businessman, was beheaded last week, there was an outcry of disbelief, and repulsion of how this man had been slaughtered. Many of you have seen the video of him screaming as he was ritually beheaded.

Many stated disbelief that this could ever happen in the world today, and that it was against the 'true teachings of Islam'. The article below by Andrew G. Bostom on talks about how beheading is actually a practice sanctioned by much of Islamic tradition and law. An interesting read - and an important one in my estimation. As long as we continue to mis-represent how much of the Muslim world feels about incidents like this, the longer we will suffer.
