Oops! Al Qaeda Behead One of Their Own By Mistake

The religion of peace claimed another human life earlier this week in the form of a beheading, the preferred method of manslaughter amongst practitioners of Islam. Except this time, who they thought was someone working with Bashar al-Assad’s military, turned out to be a fellow “rebel.”

Oh well. I’m sure Allah will sort it out. They had good, murderous intentions after all, so their god should cut them some slack. I’m sure this “rebel” is in heaven enjoying the company of 72 women right about now. CNN reported:

After the beheading earlier this week, the victim was determined to be Mohammed Fares, an anti-government fighter wounded in clashes against the Syrian Army earlier, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

On Thursday, an online statement from a spokesman for the al Qaeda-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), whose fighters apparently carried out the beheading of Fares, called for forgiveness for the killers and asked for “restraint and piety” from anti-government supporters.

“We call on God to accept Mohammed Fares into his Kingdom and to forgive his brothers that sought to rid us of the enemies of God and our enemies,” Omar Al-Qahatani said in Arabic in the ISIS statement.

“Restraint and piety?” But they operate on a completely opposite M.O. Kill first, ask questions later. Actually, forget asking questions. That’s too civilized. How about, “Convert or die.” And maybe offer an apology later if you happen to cut off the wrong person’s head.

I’m hoping that they will continue to make these careless beheading mistakes.
