This video shows beheadings of three men by rebels in Syria. I was told that the men were Christian priests. Whether they were priests, I could not tell. The first beheaded man sort of looked like he could be a priest. He also took the beheading without a wink – a man of his age, who served as devout Christian priest could well be quite content with the path he had chosen in life to die with a straight face and meet his lord in heaven.
Judging by the man shown in the beginning of the video, the beheadings took place on or near Mount al-Halaqa, west of Aleppo. A large group of people gathered round for the beheading, each one competing with another over the best spot to film the killings. Each one doing mandatory cheers, perhaps out of fear that they could be next if they didn’t.
The third beheading appears to have been carried out in a different time, with different light conditions. First two were beheaded with son shining brightly, so shadows of onlookers created sharp contrasts. The third was beheaded during an overcast so all colors look duller as there was no direct sunlight to brighten them up.
Syrian rebels continue to rule by terror in areas they still occupy. Doomed is everyone who doesn’t subscribe to their violent teachings.
