Obama Pulls Out of Afghanistan as Terror Increases, More Details of Gruesome Beheading of Afghan Christian Surfaces


Revelation 20:4, “And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.”

“Afghans are warning of dire consequences for the country’s tiny Christian population should American forces leave Afghanistan, as President Barack Obama prepares to announce his plans for a troop drawdown in a televised address to the nation scheduled for Wednesday evening.

‘If U.S. troops are not in Afghanistan the Taliban will come to power,’ said Obaid S. Christ, an Afghan Christian exiled to India who spoke to me Tuesday…

… a more recent, gruesome incident makes clear that the danger for anyone turning from Islam in Afghanistan is not over.  A video released in recent weeks, and made available to WORLD this week by two separate Afghan sources, shows four Afghan militants beheading a man believed to be a Christian in Herat Province.

The militants, who claim to be Taliban, captured the victim, a man in his 40s named Abdul Latif (according to Obaid Christ, who provided translation of the video), earlier this year from his village outside Enjeel, a town south of Herat.

In the two-minute video, the men, wearing explosive belts (or suicide vests) and kaffiya head scarves to cover their faces, recite verses from the Quran while forcing Latif to the ground and pinning him with their feet. ‘You who are joined with pagans . . . your sentence [is] to be beheaded,’ read one of the militants in Farsi from what looked like a paper decree. ‘Whoever changes his religion should be executed.’ The passages refer to Sura 8:12 (‘I will instill terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks . . .’) and the hadiths, or sayings of Mohammed.” Read more.
