Islam’s fetish with beheading explained

[LTE 8/26/14]

President Obama recently commented on the beheading of journalist James Foley and said that the Islamic State “speaks for no religion.” However, in the Koran, beheading is commanded of Muslims in Chapter 47, Verse 4, and commanded by analogy in Chapter 8, Verse 12.

Muhammad spoke for Allah and is still considered the timeless example of good conduct for Muslims wishing to go to paradise. Muhammad supervised the beheading of 600 to 900 captured Jewish males, non-combatants included. Muhammad also ordered the beheading of other specific captives. He even rewarded Muslims warriors who brought back the heads of opponents. And Muhammad said that anyone who left Islam or denied a verse of the Koran should be beheaded.

When it comes to beheading, the Islamic States speaks for Islam according to Muhammad, not Islam according to President Obama.
