Syrian Jihadis Behead Catholic Bishop to Cheers of the Crowd

This link itself is safe and will give you a written description of the news.

The Catholic news service quotes local sources who report that the radical Al-Qaeda-linked Jabhat al-Nusra, or Al-Nusra Front, was behind the savage killing.

In video posted by Live Leak purporting to show the execution, dozens of men and boys are seen cheering on as three men are seated on the ground awaiting their grisly fate.

The men are methodically beheaded one at a time by men holding what appears to be a simple kitchen knife after which the heads are placed on top of the bodies.

According to Catholic Online, the first victim was Murad.

A frenzy ensues, with dozens drawing out their smartphones to capture the bloody scene, as a chorus of Allahu Akbar (“Allah is the greatest”) are sung with jihadi rapture. Several observers are seen moving within inches of the bodies in an effort to capture close-up photos.

I don't know who the other butchered men are.

This link is also safe, though it doesn't add too much to the Blaze report. At the bottom the red link at the bottom of this article, "CLICK HERE TO VIEW," takes you to the LiveLeak video of the savage butchery. That is a very disturbing video and you should consider whether you really need to see it and if it's too awful for viewing at work. I'm insulating it via a two step process (that is, I'm not putting the LiveLeak link on this site, to avoid accidental clicks).

I've attempted to see the possible merits in pushing Assad out of power but as bad as he is, any effort aimed at destabilizing him will just give Al Qaeda its own country and of course access to all of Assad's chemical weapons (and whatever other nasty things he's got in his military basements).

Has anyone seen this reported anywhere except on the online right? I thought I was being overly conspiratorial in suggesting that the American media were downplaying the second Egyptian revolution in order to help buttress their Dear Leader Obama.

But, unless I've missed the coverage, the media is also covering up this horror, and it does seem that they are deliberately embargoing any news stories which might tend to upset Obama's foreign policy goals.
