This kidnapping was in the news in Libya. To summarize what happened – some Jihadists kidnapped an Iraqi professor as a revenge for execution of Libyan, Al-Qaeda affiliated terrorist in Iraq. The terrorist’s name was Adel al Zawi, he was found guilty by the Iraqi government of murdering Iraqi citizens.
In the video, the kidnapped man says:
I’m doctor Hamid Khalaf al Saidi from Iraq. I was a professor in Babel University in Iraq from 1991 to 1998. I came to Libya in 1998, I’m Shiite and I preach Shiite Islam. I ask that the Iraqi government of Nuri al Maliki release prisoners kept in Iraq immediately.
The Quranic verse added to the video by the Jihadists when professor is being executed says:
And whoever responds to injustice with the equivalent of that with which he was harmed and then is tyrannized – Allah will surely aid him. Indeed, Allah is Pardoning and Forgiving.
Since Libya has a Sunni majority, the Sunni jihadists made the professor (he’s an engineer actually) confess that he was preaching Shiite Islam as if it was a crime. They made it look like he deserved that bullet in the head not only as a revenge, but for preaching what they consider blasphemous faith.
