Islamists said to execute 15-year-old Syrian boy for heresy

AMMAN (Reuters) - Members of an al Qaeda-linked Islamist group in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo executed a 15-year-old boy in front of his parents on Sunday as punishment for what the group regarded as a heretical comment, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Mohammad Qataa was shot in the face and neck a day after being seized, said the pro-opposition monitoring group, which is based in Britain and uses a network of observers across Syria.

"The Observatory cannot ignore these crimes, which only serve the enemies of the revolution and the enemies of humanity," said the group's leader Rami Abdulrahman.

A photo released by the Observatory showed Qataa's face with his mouth and jaw bloodied and destroyed, as well as a bullet wound in his neck.

These are the sort of "freedom fighters" that the Obama administration wants to arm and hacks like McCain want to back with US troops on the ground.

As long as we’re screwed anyway, I must admit that I look forward to the day when the LGBT-brigade is finally free of us Christian homophobes and gets to deal with the ROP crowd instead.

This isn’t news. This is what we have come to expect from religious thugs stuck in the 5th century. They practice religious terrorism because their religion cannot compete in the marketplace of philosophical ideas.

These are the people our Islamicist-in-Chief wants to arm, and that RINOS like McCain are willing to support.

Yep, they have a heck of a real good plan...arm our enemies.

Sick bastards.

Wars are about freedom, but do not confuse freedom with democracy and republican protection for minorities. In Syria’s case, Sunni Freedom from Shiite... too bad for Christians and Muslims not on the reservation...

From a Wikipedia article:

"Sectarianism has been described as a characteristic feature of the Syrian civil war. The sharpest split is between the ruling minority Alawite sect, a Shiite Muslim offshoot from which President Assad's most senior political and military associates are drawn, and the country's Sunni Muslim majority, mostly aligned with the opposition."

It seems to me that we recently fought a major war in Iraq to replace a Sunni led government with one led by the Shiites.

So now we want to install a Sunni government in Syria. What am I missing here?

From another Wikipedia article: "Al-Qaeda is intolerant of non-Sunni branches of Islam "

Out of the frying pan and into the fire comes to mind.

Doesn’t the regularity of things like this, beheading, stoning, flogging, reveal Islam for what it is?

What other religion around the world treats it’s membership in such a vial manner?

Here you have a young boy, the hope of the next generation, and he is beheaded? Is this the act of an enlightened people?

Frankly I think the West should re-examine it’s policies regarding the followers of Islam, but putting that aside for a moment, what are the followers of Islam thinking of this?

We are told not all followers of Islam approve of this stuff. We are told that over and over and over again.

Okay, then where is the evidence of that?

Where’s the voice of the membership on this?

Where is the voice of the leadership of Islam?

The silence is deafening!

And more importantly, it is damning.

Sounds like unanimity to me folks! There it is, the true status of Islam for all the world to see.

"Even if the Prophet Mohammad comes down (from heaven), I will not become a believer."

This is a killing offense with no crime attached.

Qataa’s crime:

He was overheard saying: “Even if the Prophet Mohammad comes down (from heaven), I will not become a believer.”

For all we know, the executioner was already one of McCain's buddies in the photo-op.

Harsh, but in a way I can understand the listener getting peeved with this apparent sloppiness in the use of spatial references. The young lad should have said, 'Even if the "Prophet" [and here he should have made the finger quotes in the air when he said "Prophet"] ... 'Even if the "Prophet" Mohammad crawls up from the pit (of hell), I will not become a believer'. Then the listener could have nodded in agreement, rather than getting pissed off because the youngster did not understand the difference between up and down. Harsh, I know, but I can understand the irritation. /s

Thanks for getting us in another vipers den John. This kid’s blood is on your hands. Good thing InSain wasn’t wearing a cross or anything that would get him martyred.

Even as they are slaughtered by Muslims, they will die cursing those evil Christians.

Let’s give Obama/McCain’s foreign policy a chance. It’s working in Egypt and Libya, right?

It’s more accurately a Sharia Spring.

Maybe they’ll realize it just before the sword slices-off their heads. And then, maybe not.

Apparently, Big Brother in Syria was listening in to what the boy was saying.

But don’t worry, it can’t happen here. Our Big Brother is listening in to help us, not hurt us.

Because he loves us more than he loves himself; and his golf, and his basketball, and his lavish vacations, and his free concerts, and his extravagant and free catered banquets, and his fundraisers, and his Hollywood pals, and his unrestrained power, and his pet media, and his...

He was overheard saying: “Even if the Prophet Mohammad comes down (from heaven), I will not become a believer.”

It was even more trivial (and sad) than that. The kid was working at a coffee shop, and refused to serve rude customer, jokingly saying "Even if the Prophet Mohammed returned and told me to, I wouldn't serve you!" So he was beaten and executed for taking the prophet's name in vain.

Mohammed came to power through beating the Meccans into submission.

When you think about it, we have our own blasphemy and heresy patrols in the form of politically correct censorship. You may not get beaten or shot, but you can kiss a career in journalism, academia, or even much of corporate America goodbye for saying the "wrong" things about race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality...

Yes, and, as the summer of 2010 showed us, we also have roving teams of thugs who will beat those Americans found “guilty” of blaspheming. They are members of SEIU, and already have a track record of violence against conservatives. And, given the transfer of personal information from the IRS to collectivist groups, it will only get worse under this creep in the White House.
