A very graphic video of a Christian man being beheaded by Muslim extremists for converting from Islam to Christianity recently surfaced online and i got to see this brutality this morning. Footage of the incident, which reportedly took place in Tunisia, shows a young man being held down like “an animal” with a knife to his throat. The video—be warned, it is immensely graphic (the actual execution appears from minute 1:13). For those who prefer not to view it because I couldn’t bring myself to watch it and i did throw up a little in my mouth, this is so sad.
Video footage of the incident shows a young man being held down by masked men. His neck is pulled back, with a knife to his throat. One of the masked men, who was not in the camera’s view, chants a number of Muslim prayers in Arabic, mostly condemning Christianity.
The man holding the knife begins to cut to the cries of “Allahu Akbar!” (or “God is great!”), as the victim appears to be mouthing a prayer. The slicing takes about two minutes before the beheading is complete–upon which they shouted more Islamic cries and slogans of victory.
This is one of the most disturbing videos ever, and it saddens me so much to see all this killings in the name of religion. Here is a sad list of Christians persecutions in just June of this year.
