Oops – it seems that al-Qaeda terrorists in Syria have issued an apology for mistakenly cutting the head off a man who it wrongly suspected was a Shia militia member affiliated with the Syrian Army. Well it turns out he was a fellow terrorist instead.
In explaining the error the al-Qaeda spokesperson Mr al-Qahtani made reference to a story in which Mohammed said Allah would forgive a man who killed a believer in error, according to the Telegraph which first reported this sickening story.
In addition the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham militants say they are “very sorry for the misunderstanding.”
Head hunting and beheadings for sport are popular among radical extremists terrorist groups like al-Qaeda and al-Sham.
Beheading is a hallmark of sorts for U.S. backed Syrian rebel groups.
On youtube we found dozens of videos posted by al-Qaeda and other affiliated groups depicting people being beheading, including women and children (see video: Syrian Rebels Behead and Kill Children http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDoFLLMOlto). They are also found of beheading Christians as well http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ye_1ZOnLSk8.
Oddly the U.S. makes no real distinction between the rebel groups and is busy providing them weapons and support- which a majority of people oppose by the way. In fact six of ten people interviewed view the rebels as no better than the Syrian government, according to the Pew Institute (source: Public remains opposed to arming Syrian rebels http://www.people-press.org/2013/06/17/public-remains-opposed-to-arming-syrian-rebels/). This hasn’t stopped the U.S. government from doing it anyway?
We are surprised sometimes to the extent President Obama will go in supporting these thugs and murders in Syria – who kill innocent women and children – even going so far as to waive anti- terrorism provisions to arm these groups (source: Yes, we can: Obama waives anti terrorism provisions to arm Syrian rebels http://rt.com/usa/obama-terrorist-arms-supply-966/).
But who cares right – well you should – after all your paying for it to the tune of over $1 billion dollars so far (source: Who funds Syrian rebels – you do http://rt.com/usa/obama-terrorist-arms-supply-966/
Question: Since when is arming one side or another in a vicious sectarian civil war ever a good idea?
