Gruesome beheading of Coptic Christian men in USA

Yusuf Ibrahim stands accused of the murder, beheading and dismemberment of two Coptic Christian men following an altercation on February 5th 2013

Local media in New Jersey has reported that an Indiana native, Yusuf Ibrahim, shot and killed two men during an argument in a car in Jersey City in early February. It has also been reported that Ibrahim beheaded and later dismembered the pair.

The victims are identified as 25-year-old Hanny F. Tawadros and 27-year-old Amgad A. Konds, two Coptic Christians from Egypt who were known to Ibrahim.

After being alerted on February 7th to suspicious activity at a home in the Buena Vista Township outside Jersey City, police discovered the bodies of Tawadros and Konds in a shallow grade behind the home. They later discovered the men’s heads and hands at a separate, nearby location.

Police say Ibrahim got into an altercation on February 5th with the two acquaintances of his while in a white Mercedes-Benz belonging to one of the victims. The men, all apparently Egyptian immigrants, were in Jersey City at the time.

“These were grisly murders in which the defendant allegedly shot both victims in the chest at close range,” said Attorney General Chiesa in a press release. “We allege that the defendant was ruthless and calculating in the manner in which he carried out the killings and attempted to prevent identification of the victims by cutting off their heads and hands before burying their bodies.”

A report indicated that some members of the Saint George & Saint Shenouda Coptic Orthodox Church in Jersey City, to which Tawadros and Konds reportedly belonged, wondered if religion may have played a part in their killings. The fact that the victims were beheaded has also questions about the motivation of the killing.

    The NJ Attorney General said, “…[Ibrahim] attempted to prevent identification of the victims by cutting off their heads and hands before burying their bodies.”

    An attempt to prevent identification? I don’t think so:

    Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”

    Those two young Coptic Christian men are martyrs.

    Since there has been next to no outcry and media concerning the slaughter of the Coptic Christians in Egypt and the rest of the Middle East, why would they think it would be any different here…so far cricket’s from the MSM…guess they were right.

    Thanks for trying to get some attention to this story. You are correct – media coverage has been minimal (video here).

    Unsung Hero – allowing Egyptian Copts (the Christian victims) to emigrate here isn’t a problem. They are trying to get away from the Muslim Brotherhood regime in Egypt. Letting Muslims come here or stay here is another matter entirely.

    I guess it wasn’t really newsworthy – but the story about the two black children shunned by the Mad Hatter made all the broadcasts?

    Gee – you think religion had something to do with it?

    Doesn’t the Quran teach eye for eye and tooth for tooth? How about we apply this law to the murderer? He will probably, very quietly, end up in jail. Now had it been a Christian or Jew murdering a muslim, it would be BIG NEWS!!!
