Muslim insurgents behead 14-year-old Christian boy
World Net Daily ^ | October 31, 2006

Posted on 10/31/2006 6:09:07 AM PST by NYer

A website in Assyria is confirming that a 14-year-old Christian boy who was working a 12-hour shift maintaining an electric generator has been murdered by Muslim insurgents.

The Assyrian International News Agency said the tragedy was reported by an Assyrian language web page at www.ankawa.com.

The youth was identified as Ayad Tariq, who lived in Baqouba, Iraq, and was at work on Oct. 21 when a group of "disguised Muslim insurgents" went into the power plant shortly after his shift began at 6 a.m.

The website reported the insurgents asked him for his identification and, according to other witnesses who hid and stayed alive to report on the attack, questioned his identification card's reference to him as a "Christian."

Are you truly a "Christian sinner," they asked.

"Yes, I am Christian but I am not a sinner," he replied.

The insurgents then called him a "dirty Christian sinner," grabbed his limbs and held them while beheading him, the witnesses reported.

They were shouting, "Allahu akbar! Allahu Akbar!" during the murder, witnesses said.

An organization called AssyrianChristians.com said they are the indigenous people of Iraq, with a population that has been in the Middle East from the time of Christ.

However, they have faced a number of purges by the region's rulers over time, including the present attacks by powerful Islamic factions across Iran, Iraq and neighboring nations, officials said.

Only two generations back, Assyrian Christians made up 20 percent of the population of the Middle East, but during the Assyrian Genocide of 1915, an estimated three million Christians were slaughtered there, the organization said.

Current estimates are that there are about 2.5 million Assyrian Christians in Iraq.

Kenneth Scott LaTourette wrote in "A History of Christianity" that the Assyrian Christians became the first nation to accept Christianity, and one of the largest missionary-sending peoples in Christian history.

"The Assyrian Christians are one of the last remaining Christian communities in the Middle East," said Rev. Ken Joseph Jr., of the Assyrian Christians organization.

Tens of thousands of Assyrian Christians have fled their traditional homelands in recent months, officials confirmed.

What can one say? That these people are repulsive, disgusting, abhorrent, whatever? The words don't do it justice. I simply struggle with Christ's command to love, forgive, and not to be stirred to anger or hatred.

Is there no end to this hate. How truly heart breaking. I guess this is meant to make us fear them, instead it makes us hate them and want to kill them.

Fortunately in America, we have the Second Amendment. It won't be so easy for them when they start here and I am sure they are working toward that end.

Never trust a Muslim, they have destroyed our trust.

It's one of the vexing things about reporting from Iraq that the Western media is utterly ignorant about any religious distinctions finer than Christian/Muslim or Sunni/Shi'ite.

Do you have a new martyr to add to your calendar, or does the (Nestorian) Assyrian Church of the East? One can't tell from the report.

Prayers for this little boy and his family.

He is enjoying his treasure in Heaven. He has shown the Muslims the TRUE meaning of the word "martyr."

A martyr dies for his Faith. A fanatic merely kills.

"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached."

And anyone who doesn't realize it, hasn't been to the Middle East.

I simply struggle with Christ's command to love, forgive, and not to be stirred to anger or hatred.

I understand and appreciate your struggle to follow Christ's teachings. I don't have that struggle. I gave that struggle up at my first sight of a mass grave in 1998. I do not need to hate the islamofascists, but I will never forgive them, that is our God's job in my view. I am deploying in a few months to Iraq. I am taking my fathers Combat Bible from Vietnam with me and my cross on my dog-tags.

These animals want to meet their "god". That's fine. I'll help fill their "god's" appointment book. And I will do my utmost to make sure these animals stay away from the USA. That is my duty and the oath I swore before the US Flag, its Constitution, and God.

Unfortunately, I think they are already here and they are already killing Christians, Jews, and others whenever possible. To bad the leftists in America are not only willfully blinded to this danger, but are actively assisting the islamofascists.

And they had to cover their faces to do it. I have zero tolerance to Muslims now and its a shame as I never felt hatred toward a religion before. All these beheadings make me sick. Muslim fanatics won't stop unless we kill them or they behead us. Prayers for the boy and his family.

1Peter 3:13 And who [is] he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?

3:14 But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy [are ye]: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;

3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and [be] ready always to [give] an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

3:16 Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.

3:17 For [it is] better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.

This young Christian man will be comforted and richly rewarded by God for standing up for Jesus Christ. - OB1

They won't need to be violent here. We're doing a good enough job contracepting and aborting ourselves into non-existence. They're just sitting around watching the calendar and doing the math.

Thanks everyone, but it is you that allow me and my brethren to do our jobs.

This is why next Tuesday is so important. I may not like the fact too many Republicans have gone RINO (I'm a Reagan Conservative), but I am voting all "R" because this is probably one of the most important elections in our nation's history.

The Dems have no plan and no will to protect Americans. They failed miserably in the 90s and now we are picking up their bloody mess. If the left wins, this will happen more and more in the US. The left's answer will be to disarm Americans for "our own protection" and coddle the terrorists just like they did in the 90s. This incident in the article, which is repeated many times over the world every day by islamic "radicals", cannot be allowed to continue.
