A recent photograph has been released showing a Syrian rebel placing a human head on a barbecue, grilling his head.
According to a report, the victim was a Syrian helicopter pilot who was journeying to bring food to army bases and villages around the Marraat Noman city in the Idleb province, until he was shot down, murdered and beheaded and his head cooked on a grill.
Some say that this photo was fabricated by the Syrian government for the purpose of making propaganda against the rebels. There has been no evidence provided to prove that this is a fabrication. And also, why would this cruel barbarity be difficult to believe? It is absolutely not far fetched that the Free Syrian Army, or any other of the jihadist groups, would engage in this sort of sadism.
There was a video done some time ago showing a number of rebels decapitating two pilots:
By seeing this video, why would it then be difficult to believe that the rebels would place a head on a grill?
There are many other videos like this which I will not show for the sake of the reader’s sanity, but my point is made clear.
Furthermore, the acts of cooking a head of an enemy is rooted deeply in the Islamic religion. The most famous warrior in Sunni Islam’s history, Khalid ibn Walid, decapitated the head of a man named Malik ibn Nuwayrah before raping his wife, placed it under a cooking pot in which he cooked food and from which he then ate out of it. The Hadith for this recounts:
And he [Khalid] ordered they bring his [Malik’s] head and he placed it with two other rocks and he cooked on top of the three a pot, and Khalid ate from it that night in order to terrorize the renegade Arabs and others.
This story is further substantiated by the Arab scholar Ibn Khallikan, who writes the story thus:
[T]he head was put in the place of one of the three stones which supported the flesh-pot. Malik, as we have said, surpassed most men by the abundance of his hair, which was so thick, that the meat was cooked in the pot before the fire had reached the skull. …Khalid seized on the wife of Malik,–or by another account he purchased her out of the booty, — and married her.

We must then realize what we have been talking about for much time now: we have not seen the full face of Islam yet; true Islam is more than just terrorism with bombs and guns, but a cultic system which uphold emphasizes on human sacrifice and cannibalization of Allah’s enemies. My father and I have been forewarning on this with our past articles on cannibalism and human sacrifice being promoted in Egypt, found here and here.
I only hope that this new addition to the inherently Islamic pagan violence which has been arising in the Middle East will cause Americans to comprehend just how diabolical this recent Islamic uprising truly is.
