There has been a world-wide outcry against the beheadings of non-Muslims in the Middle East. This is not surprising because there is a natural human revulsion against such grotesque and vile deeds. Likewise, some Muslims have been condemning the terrifying spectacle of these gruesome and bloody beheadings too.
Of course, it would, indeed, be rare that anyone would ever argue that it is permissible to behead an innocent person. A rational person would consider such an argument moral insanity. It is axiomatic that an innocent person is never legitimately punished, let alone beheaded. Even the militant Muslims don’t believe that an innocent person deserves to be punished. So, why do they behead these individtuals?

Why the deafening silence to Christian cleansing?
December 28, 2011
In a recent article in the London Telegraph, Fraser Nelson discusses the tragedy of religious cleansing in Iraq, Egypt, Iran, and Lebanon. Many Christians have been shot, firebombed, and others live in fear of constant attack both in their homes and churches. There were 25 Coptic Christians killed in Egypt in the month of October, 2011. Of the 1.4 million Christians living in Iraq in 2000, about two thirds of them have fled the nation fearing for their lives. In a single attack in October 2010, al-Qaida terrorists murdered about 60 Chaldean Catholic church members.
