Muslim Head Chopper Khaled Sharrouf may have died in air strike weeks after he tried to fake his death

NOTORIOUS terrorist Khaled Sharrouf may have died in an air strike in the Middle East weeks after he reportedly tried to fake his death.

The latest speculation about Sharrouf’s fate was sparked by Australia’s top ­Islamic State recruiter Neil Prakash, who paid tribute to Sharrouf as his “dear beloved brother” at the weekend.

Terrorism experts told the Herald Sun that a tweet posted by Prakash suggested Sharrouf was dying or dead.

The Federal Government is aware of Prakash’s post but has been unable to verify it.

Prakash, from Melbourne, referred to Sharrouf by his fighting name, Abu Zarqawi Al Australi.

He asked Allah to grant Sharrouf “a shahadah that’s accepted”, a phrase he used previously in reference to dead IS fighters.

“Ya khanazeer (pigs) your pilots will suffer,” Prakash wrote.


Saudi Arabia advertises for eight new executioners

(Reuters) – Saudi Arabia is advertising for eight new executioners, recruiting extra staff to carry out an increasing number of death sentences, usually done by public beheading.

No special qualifications are needed for the jobs whose main role is “executing a judgment of death” but also involve performing amputations on those convicted of lesser offences, the advert, posted on the civil service jobs portal, said.

The Islamic kingdom is in the top five countries in the world for putting people to death, rights groups say. It ranked number 3 in 2014, after China and Iran, and ahead of Iraq and the United States, according to Amnesty International figures.

A man beheaded on Sunday was the 85th person this year whose execution was recorded by the official Saudi Press Agency, compared to 88 in the whole of 2014, according to Human Rights Watch (HRW). Amnesty said there were at least 90 executions last year…


IS ‘execute 26 civilians’, threaten Syria’s Palmyra, city with ancient Roman antiquities

Roman ruins at Palmyra, Syria

Islamic State group fighters advanced to the gates of ancient Palmyra Thursday, raising fears the Syrian world heritage site could face destruction of the kind the jihadists have already wreaked in Iraq.

As it overran nearby villages, IS executed 26 civilians — 10 of whom were beheaded — for “collaborating with the regime,” the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Syria’s head of antiquities issued an urgent appeal for international action to save Palmyra, saying extremist militants were less than two kilometres (barely a mile) from the remains of one of the most important cultural centres of the ancient world.

The world “must mobilise before, not after, the destruction of the artefacts” at the site, Mamoun Abdulkarim said in a telephone call.

“IS has not entered the city yet, and we hope these barbarians will never enter,” he said.

“But if IS enters Palmyra, it will be destroyed and it will be an international catastrophe,” Abdulkarim added.

UNESCO describes Palmyra as a heritage site of “outstanding universal value”…

Militants from Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) decapitated a Malian this week that they accused of aiding France’s anti-jihadist operation in the region, security sources said Saturday.

“A Malian civilian accused of collaborating with French forces in the Barkhane operation was executed and decapitated by AQIM this week,” a military source with the United Nations’ MINUSMA mission in Mali said of Thursday’s killing in the marketplace in Tichift, 120 kilometres (75 miles) north of Timbuktu.

An official with a regional security service said AQIM fighters also distributed a tract to people in the market, threatening the same treatment to “all other traitors working against Islam for foreign forces in the Muslim land of northern Mali”…


Islamic State video purports to show Kurdish peshmerga beheadings

(Reuters) – Islamic State has published a video purporting to show the beheading of three Kurdish peshmerga fighters in northern Iraq by militants who threatened to kill “dozens” more of those being held captive.

The six-minute clip, which appeared timed to coincide with celebrations for the Kurdish New Year, showed the peshmerga wearing orange jumpsuits being decapitated by three black-clad militants, all of whom spoke Kurdish.

The footage could not be independently verified.

The peshmerga have emerged as a key partner for the U.S.-led coalition in its campaign to “degrade and destroy” the extremist group, which they have driven back in northern Iraq with the help of airstrikes.

“To the Muslim Kurdish people: know that our war is not with you, rather it is with those who ventured into an alliance with the Safavids and crusaders to wage war on the Muslims,” said one of the militants, using derogatory terms to refer to Iran and the coalition respectively. Tehran has also provided assistance to the peshmerga…

Some 200 Palestinian Christians staged a candlelit march in Jerusalem Wednesday to mourn Egyptian Copts killed by the Islamic State group in Libya, calling for stronger international action against the jihadists.

The demonstrators carried four cardboard coffins decorated with gold crosses, and held up banners showing pictures of the 21 Coptic Christians who were beheaded by IS militants in a graphic video released Sunday.

“We call on the international community to respond to the killing of innocents,” one banner read, as an Orthodox priest read out a eulogy for the dead.

The somber march made its way to Jerusalem’s Coptic monastery, where banners were displayed featuring stills from the IS video and passages from the Bible…


Greenfield: Obama Claims Islamic State Murder of Christians Unrelated to Christianity

Obama’s condemnations of terror look a whole lot like alibis. Take his response to the brutal Islamic State beheadings of Coptic Christians in Libya, after his disastrous regime change war there.

The title of the ISIS video is “A Message Signed With Blood to the Nation of the Cross.”

The Islamic State Jihadists call Christians “Crusaders” and threaten to conquer Rome. They swear in the name of Allah. And they make assorted threats aimed at Christians…

…The condemnation not only fails to mention Islamic terrorism, but makes no mention of the fact that Christians were murdered for being Christians…


David Wood: The Sacrifice of Kenji Goto

Kenji Goto was a Japanese video journalist who converted to Christianity in 1997. The media widely reported his death at the hands of Islamic State jihadists. But the story of why he traveled to Syria is a much deeper story of love and loyalty. Kenji laid down his life in an attempt to rescue his troubled friend, Haruna Yukawa. Here’s Jay Smith discussing Kenji’s sacrifice:

David Wood’s statement is from John 15:13, “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”

Members of Magic Movement, a group of young Bangladeshis, stage a mock execution scene in protest of Saudi Arabia beheading of eight Bangladeshi workers in front of National Museum in Dhaka October 15, 2011.

It’s not just the Islamic State whose beheading knife is sharp and used often. Saudi Arabia’s decapitation knife was put to use on Friday when it beheaded a Burmese woman convicted for sexual abuse and murder of her 7-year-old stepdaughter.

Tribune identified the woman as Laila Bint Abdul Muttalib Basim, who was a resident of Saudi Arabia when she was executed.

According to human rights activist, Basim was beheaded without painkillers “to make the pain more powerful for her.”

To complete the death sentence, the executioner made three chops on her neck, while Basim was shouting, “I did not kill!” The beheading was posted on YouTube, but the video-sharing site removed it since it disallows clips with shocking and disgusting content…

Islamic State ‘police’ official beheaded: Syria monitor

(Reuters) – A top figure in Islamic State’s self-declared police force, which has carried out beheadings, was himself found decapitated in eastern Syria, a monitoring group said.

The man was an Egyptian national and was known as the deputy “emir” of the al-Hesbah force in a Syrian province, the British-based the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Tuesday.

His body, which showed signs of torture, was found near a power plant in al-Mayadeen city in the Deir-al-Zor province, it said, citing contacts on the ground.

“We do not know whether Islamic State killed him or whether it was local people or other fighters,” said Rami Abdulrahman, who runs the Observatory, which reports on events in Syria through a network of contacts on the ground.

“Either way it is important, because he was a very important man,” he said, adding that he believed it was the first time that an al-Hesbah member had been killed in this way…


Islamic State beheads four tribesmen in eastern Syria: monitor

(Reuters) – Islamic State militants have beheaded four tribesmen in eastern Syria after accusing them of fighting against them and receiving military training from pro-government forces, a monitoring organization said.

The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the men belonged to the Sunni Muslim Sheitaat tribe, which has been battling Islamic State in the eastern Deir al-Zor province bordering Iraq.

Islamic State, a radical offshoot of Sunni Muslim group al Qaeda, killed hundreds of members of the tribe in July and August, accusing them of being enemy fighters and apostates, according to residents.

The latest killings took place on Sunday in the border town of Albu Kamal, the Observatory said. Two of the men were killed in a public square and the other two at a roundabout in the town.

The men were accused of having “fought Islamic State, and joining a camp set up by the regime for the Sheitaat tribe in the Tadmur area,” the Observatory said…
