Assyrian Christian Ayad Tariq, 14, from Baqouba, Iraq, was reportedly beheaded while at work on Saturday, Oct. 21. The boy was working his 12-hour shift maintaining an electric generator when a group of Muslim insurgents in disguises walked in shortly after 6 a.m. Another employee who hid when the men approached reported the Muslims asked for the boy’s identification card. After reading the boy’s religion listed as “Christian,” one man asked Tariq if he was really a “Christian sinner.” Tariq replied, “Yes, I am a Christian, but I am not a sinner.” The Muslims called Tariq a “dirty Christian sinner” and held the boy’s arms and legs as they beheaded him to chants of “Allahu akbar!” (God is great). Terror expert Glen Jevney said thousands of Iraqi Christians are living in fear because of their identification that states their faith. Jevney called the practice “horrendous.” (Assist News Service)
