Convert from Islam to Christianity beheaded

Video footage of a convert from Islam to Christianity being murdered by Muslims has been shown on Egyptian TV. The graphic incident, which is reported to have taken place in Tunisia, was aired on a programme called Egypt Today. The footage shows a young man being held down by masked men with a knife to his throat. One man chants a number of Muslim prayers in Arabic, mostly condemning Christianity. The man holding the knife to the Christian convert’s throat begins to cut, slowly severing the head amid cries of “Allahu Akbar” (“god is great”).  This is, in fact, worse than what we normally think of as "beheading" as it is not done, sharply and quickly, with an axe or a sword.

The Egypt Today presenter was visibly distressed by the scenes. Then, referring to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and Salafis, who together hold the majority of seats in the country’s parliament, he asked, “How are such people supposed to govern?”

The footage of this brutal beheading is the latest alarming indication of the violent threat to religious freedom in the post-Arab Spring order.

We give thanks to God for our Tunisian brother’s life, and for a faith that would not waver, even unto death; and pray that his witness will touch the hearts of even his murderers, as well as those who have seen the footage of his death - that they will turn to Christ.
