On Sunday, the Vatican confirmed that Father François Murad was killed by Syrian rebel forces after a video showing the Catholic priest being beheaded by jihadists was posted online. An extremely graphic video from Live Leak reposted by Catholic Online showed amateur footage of Father Murad’s execution by beheading while dozens of men watched and chanted. In the video, a man believed to be Father Murad is first seen sitting with his hands bound before being beheaded with a simple kitchen knife. Onlookers chanting “Allahu Akbar” (“God is great”) can be seen in the footage photographing and capturing video of the bloody scene.......

John McCain and Hussein Obama should be tried as co-conspirators.

They are the ones who want to arm these heathen MF’ers so they can kill every Catholic or Christian they run across.

I don’t give a Fugg how bad Assad was he wasn’t a patch on the ass of this pack of murderous scum the Obama and McCain want to send arms to.

What the hell is Congress thinking not doing anything to stop this crap.

Wasn’t our ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens running guns to these critters from Benghazi via Turkey?

Why do some of those “Syrian rebels” look exactly like Russian Cossacks? Bill? Hillary? Anybody?

Nah. The cycle of grisly violence has to end somewhere. I'm just going with hollow points dipped in cold bacon grease. Keeps the barrel lubed and has a pleasant aroma, too.

I hope Father Murad is condsiered for sainthood. Can’t imagine anyone more eligible.

And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held.

And they cried with a loud voice, saying: How long, O Lord (holy and true) dost thou not judge and revenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

And white robes were given to every one of them one; and it was said to them, that they should rest for a little time, till their fellow servants, and their brethren, who are to be slain, even as they, should be filled up.

Well past overdue, in my opinion, (and with a side order of bacon).

He is a martyr and already a saint in heaven. He will be canonized.

Churchill said it correctly.”The mohamedans are either under foot or at your throat. There is no in between.”

I vote for under foot or better still, underground.

The administration cannot tell us what happened at Benghazi, they were too busy spying on we citizens and coordinating the attack against Tea Party patriots, to pay attention to their international tinkerings.....

We probably sold them the damned machete used to sever the head.

Disgusting.

Onlookers chanting “Allahu Akbar” (“God is great”)

Onlookers chanting “Allahu Akbar” (“God Satan is great”)

There, fixed it. Those wacky Journo-listers can't seem to get the translation right.
