Someone wanted proof, so... BTW, given that other news outlets have reported of past beheadings in Syria, and that it was reported that Syrian rebels carried them out, what do you think of this?

At least he can another purple heart for a paper cut while looking at the photos.

Hey, shut up, you’re talking about the religion of peace. They made great contributions to western culture. Ask Obama, he’ll tell you.

In medieval western Christian culture the headsman was a professional. He was generally very strong and very good at what he did. This was so that the process would be painless for the victim. It was common for the victim to tip the headsman in the hopes that the job would be carried out with one blow.

I mention this because the sword shown looks more like something from a souvenir shop and the arm swinging it has no noticeable brawn. I hope this didn’t take several whacks.

Other beheadings have been carried out with saws and regular knives and have taken several seconds to a full minute with the victim screaming until he couldn’t anymore.

These people are animals.

Is it me, or should there not be some blood spraying all over the place on the ground. I don’t see a drop. Last I knew, a neck chop like that should have blood everywhere.

“Is it me, or should there not be some blood spraying all over the place on the ground.”

The photo was taken before the head chop. The victim is wearing a head dress which has fallen forward or has been moved off of his neck. The headsman is taking his aiming dip. He then raises the sword (and it should be done two-handed) and then slams it down as hard as he can. Unless he’s Islamic, and then you can take thirty whacks or so. The victim’s not going anywhere.

Looks like he took a pretty good whack at it.

Too bad he couldn’t keep his head about him.

Then again, he did stick his neck out.

You know, you could pit a Pez character on his shoulder. Kids luv that stuff.

Reminds me of the beheading of Serbian Christians by the Bosnian Muslims during that Civil War. Hmmmm seems like the US was on the Jihadist side there too.

If Obama can get the US weapons to them faster the beheadings might end. They can shoot their prisoners in the back of the head instead.

"Reminds me of the beheading of Serbian Christians by the Bosnian Muslims..."

I think it's reminiscent of "Jenjis" Khan.

The sword is not a beheading sword. I suspect that the beheading was unbelievably painful. The man probably screamed until he died.

This is entertainment for these people.

What they needs is American planes giving them air cover while they behead half the population of Syria.

Paris Match didn’t release all of the pics. The rest of them that they made available are available to see only in the print/newsstand format.

Look at the shadow. If this is a beheading, why is the point of the sword not at or at least near the neck? What am I missing here?

Never mind. My old eyes have difficulty with smaller images. I see that the shadow is the knife, not the sword.
