"In the gruesome murder of American journalist Foley, it troubles me when I hear Muslims say, "beheading has nothing to do with Islam" and then people like president Obama validate that lie.

How can Muslims deny that Prophet Muhammad himself ordered the beheading of a poet in Mecca who mocked Allah in his poetry? That makes the beheading punishment a Sunnah .

Do we deny that later Muslims would behead the Prophet's dearest grandson and then parade the head through the streets of Damascus ?

Why do we pretend we don't know that centuries later in Baghdad, the agnostic Mansoor Hallaj was beheaded publicly?

Do Muslim leaders not know about Timurlane building pyramids of skulls as Sharia experts cheered him on?

We need to stop lying."
