Muslim Acts of Beheading in the West

Other characteristically Muslim crimes taking place in Western countries include honor killings, female genital mutilation, and slave holding.
beheading in London

The gruesome murder of a soldier outside London by a Muslim convert, Michael Adebolajo, brings to mind that throat slitting and beheading are Islamically sanctioned forms of execution. Although these occur particularly often in the course of family-related crimes – think, for example, of the case of Aasiya Hassan in suburban Buffalo, N.Y., killed by her husband in 2009, stabbed with two hunting knives more than forty times in the face, back and chest, then beheaded – this monstrous form of violence is also used in non-family instances. Some of those that took place over the past decade in the West in chronological order include:

In addition, Ibragim Todashev, who was shot and killed yesterday while being interviewed about the Waltham murders, reportedly grabbed a knife and stabbed an officer several times, including in the head, possibly an attempt on his neck. In any case, it was so threatening that the officers used deadly force and on the spot killed Todashev.

This list (to be updated as needed) is only part of the story: other characteristically Muslim crimes taking place in Western countries include honor killingsfemale genital mutilation, and slave holding. These, sadly, are among Islam’s contributions to the lands of immigration.

Postscript: What this analysis does not cover: (1) Daniel Pearl, Nick Berg, and other Westerners murdered in Pakistan, Iraq, and other non-Western places. (2) Meir Kahane, Hitoshi Igarashi, and other prominent individuals assassinated in the West but not beheaded; Theo van Gogh is the only person listed both here and at “Islamist Assassinations in the West.” (May 23, 2013)

  1. the cowardice of heart and mind and soul of the west results in muslims having become bolder. Israel, is alone in confronting this sewage.

    Judith ur an idiot – condemning an entire religious group over the acts of a few extremists is ridiculous. I guess I should hate all whites and hope to rid the world of your race over hitler?? People like you are what's wrong with this world, you're exactly the same as the extremists that did the beheading…disgusting

    I usually take a strong stand against those ultra-Orthodox Jews who deny other Jews (and non-Jews) the freedom to practice or not practice their religion. Not on this issue: Exterminate these Islamic vermin.

    I just don't like it how this church burning was not mentioned in the press that's all.
