The Taliban’s objective is to establish a state in Afghanistan (and the rest of the world in due course) where lives are lived exactly as they were in the “Prophet’s” time. No surprise then that beheadings are as common as snuff at a wake. Your Savant has just seen a video of one such beheading.
A continuous 2 1/2-minute shot shows the victim lying on his side on a patch of rubble-strewn ground. A man holds him by his beard while the executioner, wearing a camouflage military jacket and oversized white sneakers, cuts into the throat with a large knife. Blood spurts everywhere as other men and boys call out "Allahu akbar!" -- "God is great!". The film, overlain with jihadi songs, then shows the boy hacking and slashing at the man's neck until the head is severed, whereupon he hoists it in triumph by the hair.
‘So what’ you may well ask. This is what we've come to know and love about the Religion of Peace. But there’s a difference with this one. The executioner is so young, reputed to be 12, but he looks younger, that he’s little more than a child. What a lovely religion, and isn’t it wonderful to see it swamping our continent?
