Heads Are Literally Rolling in Iraq
Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant As America looks on in a state of paralyzed shock, Muslims are slaughtering Muslims in Iraq, with reports that the heads of those decapitated are literally piling up in the streets.

A headline to an article in the Daily Mail reads, " 'They lined the streets with the decapitated heads of police and soldiers': Iraqi refugee reveals the horrors of the jihadi takeover as Baghdad vows to fight back."

In response to this report, and with sarcastic guns ablaze, Robert Spencer quotes the Quran and then adds his comments, " 'So when you meet those who disbelieve, strike necks' (Quran 47:4). But of course any Muslim who takes such a verse at face value is [a] misunderstander of Islam, unduly influenced by greasy Islamophobes. Somehow this aggressive organization of misunderstanders of Islam has been able to gain sufficient support and power to wreak havoc in Iraq."

It is true, of course, that war itself is hell and that our guns and bombs have the power to maim, disfigure and destroy. But rules of war still preclude harming soldiers who have surrendered or intentionally target helpless civilians for acts of violence.

Not so militant Islam, where beheading is often the death penalty of choice. How did this barbaric practice become so widespread?

In an article entitled "Christ, Muhammad, and the Culture of Beheading," theologian Kenneth Gentry noted that, "In Islam, the prophet Muhammad is the greatest example for the faithful to follow. He is the model of dedication to God par excellence; in fact, he is deemed the perfect example of submission to Allah. Hence, even deriding this perfect one is blasphemous, as witness the case of Salman Rushdie, who was put under a death sentence for belittling the prophet.
