Jihad in the Bible - A Graphic Commentary (Warning - violent photos)

Images of what Holy War in the Bible would really look like...as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Jihad in the Bible - A Graphic Commentary

WARNING! Extremely violent images are needed to graphically illustrate the doctrines of the Bible

If you are disturbed by images of extreme violence, then please leave this page now. Do not view these images and do not read the Bible verses that accompany these images.

Links to Videos of the Bible's doctrine of beheading enemies

See the page The Judeo-Christian Origins of 'Islamic' Terrorism for a collection of Bible verses on the subject of beheading in the name of God.

It is impossible to understand the depraved mindset of these murdererous beheaders in Iraq without understanding the mindset which went into the creation of the Bible. It is pretty sad commentary on a culture that for thousands of years somehow the mental illness writers of what were obviously sociopaths or at best a collection of untreated psychiatric patients could somehow have come to be regarded as our society's most sacred book. The destruction caused by the celebration of cruelty and wickedness and the warped mind that results when what is actually evil is celebrated as sacred can still be seen today, most notably having been posted onto the internet by those whose minds have been warped by the Bible. And so in that sense I believe that these murder videos actually do a service in that they expose what the Bible really means, and they do it in graphic detail, and in that sense they might actually sensitize people and make them aware of the need for both uncompromising resistance against the religious right and the righteousness of resistance against primitive superstitions which for to long have been peddled by that overrated book known as the 'Holy Bible' (and calling the Bible 'Holy', that truly is an oxymoron if there ever was one).

For those who do not get the point, links to some of the absolutely worst of these religious videos follow here (bringing the Bible and its doctrine of jihad and religious beheading up front in graphic detail...this is what the Bible and its doctrine of religious jihad really means, people...)

shame on you 22.Oct.2004 17:53


the bible is sacred. it's the absolute truth. at least that's what everyone keeps on telling me. really, a very old book written by men for men. all the pics are in character with the competitive behavior the bible encourages.

war is more than a bitch 22.Oct.2004 19:55

I really don't see a link in the verses and pics. i realise all the verses u have included are of the Old Testament. Jesus came waaay after that so that men shall not murder but love one another. To love one another is God's greatest teaching. To kill is to sin.

Im surprised that an American has the guts to place a portal as yours, yet for those readers here, I would like to say that if you dont like what you see here, you must get more involved with getting the BUSH family out of power, Bush senior is the mentor of this war issues, whatever the bible says, whatever the lord wanted, its not actually what BUSH really wants, by Bush's order we americans are killing a lot more inocent and/or not so inocent people and not as many FOR SURE of those that Saddam killed, actually we are killing more Kurds and Shiites than Saddam ever could get a hold of, and for what purpose???? NONE, at the end there is no more of a purpose than to get the BUSH DINASTY RICH AS ANYBODY COULD EVER BE....... So I urge anyone who takes a look here, please dont ever ever vote for another BUSH in power. Money and lives that could be well spent in the USA and used for peace and food around the world is being used to kill our own, and nevertheless those inocent children of Iraq.

i agree with the man above 16.Nov.2006 14:52

pepe of the uk

i agree with the comments made above. we should have left saddam in kuwiat and let him dictate to the world what the price of oil would be. that jerk above would agree to someone facing execution for killing his kids. but not the same judgement passed to the people of iraq for there crimes. i know that most the people of iraq are peacefull like we are but that does not excuse their leaders. i think the person above should take a time machine back to the secound world war in warsaw as a jew. fuck you prick

Your an Idiot 30.Dec.2006 00:40
