Here is a transcript from ChurchMilitant.TV, which carried this story in its August 6, 2014, news broadcast:
A Christian man in Syria recently had his head viciously hacked off by Islamic militants after being forced to deny his faith and salute Mohammed as the "messenger of God.""Religion of Peace"??? I'm speechless.
The incident was caught on video for the world to see and broadcast this morning as a warning everyone like him.
The video that was posted on YouTube with translated captions. The helpless Christian man is surrounded by armed militants wearing masks, and he is heard reciting as instructed "There is no God but God, and I testify that Mohammed is the messenger of God."
