French Catholic Priest Beheaded in Syria: Francois Murad Martyred

Last Wednesday evening, after having being taken captive/kidnapped by Sunni terror squads in southern Syrian town of Gassanieh, Father Francois Murad was beheaded in front of children, martyred for his faith; his identity as Christian.

We should note that the executioner on the video is not a native Arabist, his inflections reveal him to be a Chechen.  This only confirms intelligence reports that the Syrian conflict is international in scope.

It has long been clear for those with the fortitude to acknowledge it, that the tenants of Islam remain at odds with basic ethical precepts.  The criminalization of human identity has a long history in Islam.

The battle between the sons of Ishmael and the Great Satan continues. . . . .
