A graphic video of a Christian man being beheaded by Muslim extremists for converting from Islam to Christianity was recently shown on talk shows in Canada and Egypt. Footage of the incident, which reportedly took place in Tunisia, shows a young man being held down like "an animal" with a knife to his throat.
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. The video—be warned, it is immensely graphic—can be seen here (the actual execution appears from minute 1:13-4:00). For those who prefer not to view it, a summary follows:
It has been brought to our attention that the beheading also has been reported as taking place in Syria, as posted on this video, which has an earlier posting date than the one from Egyptian television. Thus it is likely that this act of brutality was executed by the Free Syrian Army, not by Tunesians.

Why is it that Muslim groups never speak out against the sharia and/or the jihad against non-Muslims across the world? Look at CAIR's website, or that of ICNA, MSA, MSU ..... nothing addressing the slaughter across the world in the cause of Islam? It is their sanction.
Here are the Qur'an, Hadith, and Tafsir passage cited in the video: Qur’an 9:28—O ye who believe! Truly the Pagans are unclean; so let them not, after this year of theirs, approach the Sacred Mosque. And if ye fear poverty, soon will Allah enrich you, if He wills, out of His bounty, for Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.

In a major undertaking, the British organisation HOPE not hate has produced a mapping of the so-called "Counterjihad Movement", a common denominator for a loosely connected network of activists, writers and bloggers opposed to the Islamization of Western societies.
The complete report can be read as a well organized web site here:
It is probably no coincidence that the report is issued just as the court case against Anders Behring Breivik is to open in Oslo, Norway. Quite appropriately, the signature picture of the page has ABB pointing a rifle towards a selection of top Counterjihad persons.
The massive crime committed by ABB has catapulted the Counterjihad movement into public attention, and as the image seems to indicate, much blame has been heaped upon various Counterjihad luminaries. More on that later.

Dear Muslim Brothers and Sisters
Greetings in the name of Allah, the beneficent and the Merciful!
Today we are fortunate to watch what is happening in the world on TV from our living rooms – whether it is tsunami, floods, earthquakes, plane crashes, refugee camps, the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan etc. In this panorama of world events, we also watch our Muslim brothers continually involve in unending fights in Palestine, Kashmir, Southern Thailand, Mindanao (Philippines), Nigeria, Chechnya, Burma, Xinxiang province in China etc. We also watch Muslims killing Muslims, or Sunnies fighting against Shiites Ahamadias, Bahais, often attacking their Mosques using suicide bombers.
We sit down with Kamal Saleem, a former Islamic terrorist who left jihad behind and embraced Jesus. Saleem, who was born and raised in Lebanon, worked for a variety of notorious terrorist ideologues and groups in the Middle East, including the Muslim Brotherhood, Saddam Hussein, and Yasser Arafat.

Bernard Lewis on Blaspheming Muhammad: "The jurists on the whole tend to take a rather mild view of this offense.”

Regarding the "crime” of blaspheming Islam’s prophet, thus spake the Islamic Yoda of our generation, circa April, 2006:
"The jurists on the whole tend to take a rather mild view of this offense.”
Professor Carl Brockelmann (1868-1956), the renowned scholar of Semitic languages, and arguably the foremost Orientalist of his generation, made these candid observations in 1939 about the Sharia’s injunctions pertaining to penal law in general, and so-called "blasphemy and apostasy,” specifically—Islamic Law being "valid” eternally, and all too widely applied in Brockelmann’s era, till now.
