Christian Convert From Islam Beheaded on Egyptian National TV: Timothey Whiteman
Christian convert from Islam beheaded on Egyptian national TV
As published by The Christian Post, a video was recently shown on Egyptian television reportedly depicting the literal carving-off of the head of a bound Tunisian man who had abandoned Islam and converted to Christianity.
A heavily edited version of the video (sans actual bloodshed) was also aired on Canadian TV’s political discussion program “The Arena” hosted by Michael Coren of Canada’s Sun News Network (please see video link, left).
Coren begins his segment by matter-of-factly stating:
“There is a video on the web right now showing a man having his head cut off slowly and agonizingly, essentially because he has converted to Christianity from Islam.”
While rolling the video, Coren went on to say:
“… various Islamic chants going on right now, and this goes on for some time before this poor man’s head is actually cut off.
They taunt him for the longest time, he’s completely unable to move or resist.
And finally, his head is cut off and held up for the camera.”
Video: A Beheading in Tunisia.
As the executioner begins slicing at the side of the man’s neck, those observing the slaying off-camera shouted “Allahu Akbar! (God is great).
The Christian Post reports that as the execution begins, the victim appears to be silently mouthing a prayer.
After a full two minutes of hacking and carving, the “beheading” is finally completed — to the cheers and and cries of Islamic victory from the assembled crowd.
According To The Guest…
Rev. Majed El Sahfie, founder of One Free World International appeared on Coren’s program.
Also a convert to Christianity from Islam, Shahfie’s first comment was “Welcome to the Arab Spring.”
The Reverend cited that this faith-related killing isn’t the first of it’s kind in the Muslim World, to include:
- A Catholic priest who was killed in Tunisia.
- A man whose ears were cut off in Egypt.
- An American teacher who was killed in Yemen after being accused of converting people to Christianity.
There has been years of persecution to both the Orthodox and Catholic Copts of Egypt; the Chaldean Catholics of Iraq; and the Catholic and Protestant Christians of Sudan.
In June, 2010, His Excellency Bishop Luigi Padovese, Bishop of Monteverde and the vicar apostolic of Anatolia in Turkey was attacked and killed by his driver, Murat Altun.
According to reports, the bishop’s body was covered with:
“knife wounds all over his body, but especially in the heart (at least 8).
His head was almost completely detached from his neck, attached to his body by only the skin of the back of the neck.”
After the slaying of Bishop Padovese, Altun shouted “I killed the great Satan! Allah Akbar!
