Zechariah 5:3a, 8a, “… This is the curse ["alah"] that goes out over the face of the whole earth … This is Wickedness …”
One correction should be made to the following article. “Allahu Akbar” does not mean “God is great” as it is often translated, but rather “Allah is greater.” Having said that, there’s no word at this time whether or not this involved a Muslim family, but if it didn’t, isn’t it telling how a gruesome act like the beheading of another human being is now becoming directly associated with the “religion of peace”? …
Update: The killer was of Turkish origin …
The unidentified 32-year-old man allegedly screamed ‘Allahu Akbar,’ which means ‘God is great’ in Arabic, before decapitating his wife on the roof of his five-story apartment, according to a translation of the Berliner Morgenpost. Police described the suspect as mentally ill.
Neighbors said the man and his wife were arguing loudly before they were seen on the rooftop. The man reportedly sharpened his knife and then beheaded the victim while she was still alive.
Horrified witnesses saw the man standing at the roof’s edge with his wife’s head in his hand, according to police reports obtained by the paper. He allegedly threw the head into the courtyard below.
NewsCore reported that the man put up a fight when police arrived, but was eventually subdued.
Six children, aged 18 months to 13 years old, were all found safe inside the apartment. It’s yet unclear whether they witnessed the attack.
Neighbors said that the woman had wanted to throw out her husband.” Source – The Huffington Post.
Tunisia: Muslims Behead Man For Refusing To Renounce His Faith In Jesus, ‘There Is No God But Allah And Muhammad Is His Messenger’
John 16:2b, “… the time is coming when those who kill you will think they are doing a holy service for God.”
Qur’an Sura 8:12b, “… terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.”
By Raymond Ibrahim – “Liberal talk show host Tawfiq Okasha recently appeared on ‘Egypt Today,’ airing a video of Muslims slicing off a young man’s head off for the crime of apostasy — in this instance, the crime of converting to Christianity and refusing to renounce it …
A young man appears held down by masked men. His head is pulled back, with a knife to his throat. He does not struggle and appears resigned to his fate. Speaking in Arabic, the background speaker, or ‘narrator,’ chants a number of Muslim prayers and supplications, mostly condemning Christianity, which, because of the Trinity, is referred to as a polytheistic faith: ‘Let Allah be avenged on the polytheist apostate’; ‘Allah empower your religion, make it victorious against the polytheists’; ‘Allah, defeat the infidels at the hands of the Muslims,’ and ‘There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger.’
Then, to cries of ‘Allahu Akbar!’— Allah is greater!’—the masked man holding the knife to the apostate’s throat begins to slice away, severing the head completely after approximately one minute of graphic knife-carving, as the victim drowns in blood. Finally, the severed head is held aloft to more Islamic slogans of victory.
Visibly distraught, Tawfiq Okasha, the host, asks: ‘Is this Islam? Does Islam call for this? How is Islam related to this matter?…These are the images that are disseminated throughout the electronic media in Europe and America…. Can you imagine?’ Then, in reference to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and Salafis, whose political influence has grown tremendously, he asks, ‘How are such people supposed to govern?’
Only the other day, a prominent Egyptian Salafi leader — referring to the canonical hadiths, including Muhammad’s command, ‘Whoever leaves his religion, kill him’ — openly stated that no Muslim has the right to apostatize, or leave Islam.
Any number of Islamic legal manuals make explicitly clear that apostasy is a capital crime, punishable by death. The first ‘righteous caliph,’ a model of Muslim piety, had tens of thousands of former Muslims slaughtered—including by burning, beheading, and crucifixion—simply because they tried to break away from Islam. According to the Encyclopaedia of Islam, the most authoritative reference work on Islam in the English language, ‘there is unanimity that the male apostate must be put to death.’
Finally, a word on the ‘prayers’ or supplications to Allah made by the Muslim executioners in the video: these are standard and formulaic. In other words, these are not just masked, anonymous butchers who pray to Allah as they engage in acts of cutting throats and holding up heads, these are top-ranking Muslim leaders, who appear regularly on TV, who invoke such hate-filled prayers. See here for examples of Muslims supplicating Allah to strike infidels with cancer and disease ’till they pray for death and do not receive it;’ there are even formalized prayers in Mecca, blasted on megaphones as Muslims honor their obligation to go on a pilgrimage at least once in their lives, supplicating Allah to make the lives of Christians and Jews ‘hostage to misery; drape them with endless despair, unrelenting pain and unremitting ailment; fill their lives with sorrow and pain and end their lives in humiliation and oppression.’

Palestinian Dignitaries Encourage Others To Follow Path Of Terrorism After Israel Hands Over Bodies Of 91 Terrorists As Gesture Of Goodwill
Yes, these are Israel’s “partners for peace.” Yet again, in a culture built upon hate, no good deed goes unpunished …
“On May 31, 2012, as a gesture of goodwill to PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, Israel transferred to the Palestinian Authority 91 bodies of terrorists who were killed during their terror attacks, and had been buried in Israel in a cemetery for terrorists. The PA gave the terrorists a military funeral for heroes, with the participation of Mahmoud Abbas, PA Mufti Muhammad Hussein, and other PA dignitaries.”
PA Grand Mufti Muhammad Hussein: “Today we receive this elite group of Martyrs. Our people, headed by the Palestinian leadership, welcome these Martyrs with great honor… As we accompany these Martyrs to Heaven, we should be happy: By Allah’s will, we still have elite groups of Martyrs like these among us. We still have a generous leadership, and we still have a people that has never been sparing and will spare no sacrifice for this blessed land, for this homeland, for Jerusalem and the holy places, and for every inch of the pure land of beloved Palestine. Honored brothers, this is a great event: The souls of the noble Martyrs envelop us, and their souls tell us to follow in their path.”
The Secretary General of Mahmoud Abbas’ office, Tayeb Abd Al-Rahim: “Our Martyrs are now among us after being in our hearts, in our minds, and in our veins. We did not forget them for a moment, we will never forget them, and we will always remain faithful to their vow… Oh brothers [Martyrs], your souls now hover above us and say to us: ‘Follow in our path, stick to the obligation that is incumbent upon us and we are sure that you will be fulfilling this obligation and following this path.’ May Allah have mercy on you. We ask Allah to gather you in the uppermost heaven, along with the prophets, the righteous, and the Martyrs.”
By Mike Wall, SPACE.com – “The historic transit of Venus across the sun Tuesday is a must-see for skywatchers, but observers shouldn’t overlook another celestial event that comes just one day earlier — a partial lunar eclipse of the June full moon.
On Tuesday (June 5), Venus will trek across the sun’s face from Earth’s perspective, marking the last such transit of Venus until 2117. In a sort of celestial warmup, the full moon will dive through the Earth’s shadow on Monday morning to produce a partial lunar eclipse that will be visible to observers throughout parts of North America, Asia and the Pacific region, weather permitting.
The lunar eclipse comes two weeks after the May 20 annular solar eclipse that enthralled skywatchers around the world, and that’s no accident.
Solar eclipses are always accompanied by lunar eclipses, either two weeks before or two weeks after. The moon travels halfway in its orbit around the Earth in that time, forming another straight line with our planet and the sun. (In solar eclipses, the moon blots out the sun, while lunar eclipses occur when Earth’s shadow covers all or part of the moon.)
The same parts of the world that were treated to the May 20 ‘ring of fire’ solar eclipse will thus be favorably placed for Monday’s partial lunar eclipse. Much of central and western North America should get a good show, as should eastern Asia, Australia and the Pacific region. The full moon of June is konwn as the Strawberry Moon since it occurs during the short strawberry-harvesting season this month. [Partial Lunar Eclipse of June 4, 2012: Observer's Guide (Images)]
The eclipse begins in earnest at 6 a.m. EDT (1000 GMT), when the moon first contacts the umbra, the dark inner portion of Earth’s shadow. The umbra might appear dark and relatively colorless to the naked eye, but binoculars or a telescope may show it glowing dimly orange, red or brown.
The eclipse peaks at 7:04 a.m. EDT (1104 GMT), when 37 percent of the moon will be in shadow, and ends an hour later, at 8:06 a.m. EDT (1206 GMT).” Read more.
