Beheadings

Posted: September 20, 2014 in Uncategorized

David ordered seven sons of Saul killed to pacify the complaint of the Gibeonites that Saul offended, which was punished by a three year famine causing David’s action. Connection, connection connection, the head of Sheba son of Bichri was thrown down the wall of his hometown before Joab could destroy that city, all for rebelling against the king.

This is to say that beheadings are not new to the space, whether newsmen or journalists, but what is new is the notion that individuals have rights separate from their past and pasts of both their families and their tribes and people, neighbors, and that these individual rights outweigh all this history. To these they don’t. ISIS wants to suck U.S. in. It’s not a mistake, it’s a strategy.
