Baghdad barbarism comes to the streets of London
It is not at all clear what is of 'Muslim appearance' about this man, as was widely reported as this appalling story was breaking. It is certainly not at all typical of an Al-Qaeda operative to apologise to the ladies when they are forced to witness a machete hacking away at a severed head.
What we do know is that the murderers were two black men, and that they were heard shouting 'Allahu Akbar!' as they sliced into the victim like he was ‘a piece of meat’. An eye-witness told Iain Dale on LBC Radio: "They were hacking at this poor guy, literally. They were chopping him, cutting him. These two guys were crazed. They were just animals."
Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim's family. This is utterly deplorable and totally unjustifiable, unless you happen to follow quite literally the historic example of Mohammed, who butchered and beheaded his enemies while invoking the name of Allah.
Atrocities committed in the name of religion are actually committed by man. God condemns murder. Those who spout a doctrine of God which condones it are worshipping a false god or heeding the words of a false prophet. Blessed are the peacemakers.
