Beware! Beheading Becoming New Fashion for Jihad Terrorists

Beheading is no longer an occasional nightmare; it is becoming a new fashion among Middle East jihadists. Be warned!

Beware! Beheading is rapidly becoming the new fashion method for terrorists. The Islamic State’s methods are spreading very quickly to other geographic arenas in the Middle East and Africa.

In the past couple of weeks we have heard about cases of beheading in numerous other countries. There have been such cases reported in Lebanon, in the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, and in Nigeria as well, the latter carried out by the Boko Haram group who kidnapped hundreds of Christian girls for slaves several months ago.

Unfortunately the media – especially the social media – has no doubt played a major role in exporting the idea of beheading from Iraq and Syria to other parts of the world.

Reports of the incidents zip around the world with each new beheading, although such barbaric methods are not new. Journalist James Foley was not the first victim. And journalist Steve Sotloff, a Jewish Israeli-American dual citizen who hid both his Judaism and his Israeli citizenship, just joined his beheaded colleague.

We have already seen what Abu Mus’ab al-Zarqawi did to Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl. We saw what happened to British soldier Lee Rigby in the streets of London.

Now, I am afraid, beheading has become a fashion; an acceptable, legitimate, ‘regular’ method of jihad.

The Western silence is shocking. Everyone says it is “there” and not “here.” “Who cares about ‘them’?” “Let them kill each other.”

Where are the demonstrations against the beheading of the Yazidis? Where is the support for the Christians in Nigeria? Where are all the moderate Muslims? Why don’t we hear their condemnation of this ‘fashion’ of beheading?

The world is sleep-walking!!

Be warned: if the world continues to simply bat helplessly away in deafening silence, beheading will become a fashion in “our” place as well. If will cross continents and oceans, and no place will remain immune.

Wake up before it’s too late. I hope and pray I am wrong; but I fear that I am only too right.

    Obama & Cameron telling that ISIS [ Al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah, Fatah etc..] are not real Muslims after the latest beheading is as preposterous as saying that the Catholic Pope during the Inquisition didn’t represent mainstream Christianity.

    Some muslims chop off heads every day, others once in a while, others even eat livers of dead muslims, others butchered UK soldier Rigby in London, others torture muslims in Jail &/or display in the Ramallah streets the internal organs of 2 IDF sodliers, & others throw muslims from high rise building in Gaza, drag dead body behind motorcycle, & simply line up in the Gaza street 20 muslims & shoot them dead, etc…

    And all the Islam partners in crimes, the Obamas, Camerons & the vile
    Israel Left repeat is respect, multiculturalism & tolerance towards these savage intolerant muslims…

  2. Remember Daniel Pearl?????

  3. Beheading is mentioned in the book of revelation in the New Testament.

  4. Beheading is also mentioned in Talmud., Sharon. See numerous places in Sanhedrin, once in Yevamot. |||| Perhaps it will cause a reaction of decapitation for ISIS members.

  5. Bob Riley says:

    For some reason Obama started caring when when the Zoroastrians were being killed and even more when the New York Times reporter was killed. Killing and enslaving thousands of Christians for months, wasn’t a problem for him. I wonder why. Oh ya there is food and water being air dropped to trapped Shiites, hmmmm?

  6. Might seem new to some, but it is not.

  7. Dorothy Caruso says:

    Thank you for the Wake Up Call, Dr. Kedar, but not "everyone" is saying, "I don't care, they are there, not here." There are groups helping but you never know how much or how they are getting the aid. I am shocked at the churches that seem to be oblivious to his debacle and yet pride themselves on what "good missionaries" they are!!! My Facebook is hot with comments of discontent for inaction and outrage of these atrocious acts and Obama's "we have no plan or strategy"..lazy, non-caring, "gee, we must protect the Muslims first, mentality! Pray for us! We're going down a rabbit hole quickly!

  8. Du Val Jax says:

    We’re witnessing horrible times; "1st) they came for the Jews, but I didn’t care because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the Christians, but I didn’t care because I wasn’t a Christian. Then they came for the intellectuals but I didn’t care because I wasn’t an intellectual. Now they knocking on my door they’re coming for me"… Wake up world, just wake up!

  9. Here is a crazy idea, if the international community spent a fraction of time that waste with condemning Israel for building on their own land and focused their attention wiping out these low life, scum bags, maybe we wouldn't have so many problems with terrorists groups. But, that would take moral clarity, something that is in desperately short supply.

  10. It is not a new fashion. Beheading, crucifixion and death from the sword were the methods employed by Mohammed. This is a religion that lives in the 7th century, and wants the rest of the world to do the same.
