Muslim Who Beheaded Christians in New Jersey Charged With Murder, Desecrating Human Remains

Jersey City, New Jersey — A Muslim man is behind bars tonight and is facing murder and desecration charges after beheading two Egyptian Christians and cutting off their hands.

Reports state that 28-year-old Yusuf Ibrahim of Jersey City killed 25-year-old Hanny F. Tawadros and 27-year-old Amgad A. Konds earlier this month by shooting them in the chest at close range. He then beheaded the men and chopped off their hands, and took off with the car belonging to one of his victims.

Ibrahim buried the various body parts in separate shallow graves just outside of Philadelphia, where they were later uncovered by authorities. One of the men had just recently moved to New Jersey from Egypt.

RTV-6 states that Ibrahim knew the men and killed them following an argument. He was taken into custody by police, who reportedly had been tipped off about the matter, after the bodies of the two men were discovered in the back yard of a home in Buena Vista. Police state that Ibrahim intended on setting the Mercedez Benz of one of the victims on fire, but took off after being spotted by officers. He was later caught and arrested at his apartment after a thorough investigation was conducted.

Ibrahim has been incarcerated on $3 million bail, and recently appeared to face charges via a video link from the Hudson County Jail. He is facing two counts each of murder and desecrating human remains.

While an impetus is not yet known for the crime, some are concerned that it might be religiously motivated. Pamela Geller, a conservative blogger who also serves as the executive director of American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) and Stop Islamization of America (SIOA), says that she believes the beheadings coincide with Muslim teachings.

“The killing evokes this passage in the Quran: ‘When thy Lord was revealing to the angels, ‘I am with you; so confirm the believers. I shall cast into the unbelievers’ hearts terror; so smite above the necks, and smite every finger of them!'” she said. “The victims were Coptic Christians and the murderer was Muslim, and we are painfully aware of the status and treatment of Coptic Christians under Muslim rule in Egypt.”

But Samy Hohareb, a friend of the two men, said he was not so sure.

“I leave it for the police and the investigation,” he told reporters.

Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Wilson said that it was a “pretty horrific crime,” and commended the officers involved for apprehending Ibrahim. Assistant Attorney General Thomas Calcagni agreed.

“From the moment they were alerted to the crimes here, they moved with what was really lightning speed to uncover the evidence, identify the victims and locate and apprehend the suspect,” he said.

Official reports describe the crime as “ruthless” and “calculating.” Ibrahim has been wanted over the past year regarding his connection to an armed robbery that took place in 2012.

State police are investigating whether any accomplices were involved in the murders.

    The hard truth is that unlike Buddhists whose civilizational consciousness is informed by the peaceful teachings and examples of the Guatama Buddha, or Christians whose civilizational consciousness is informed by the love/forgiveness and redemption teachings and examples of Jesus Christ, the Muslim mind is informed by the civilizational consciousness of the founder and ‘holy prophet’ of Islam, Muhammed.

    Unlike Buddha or Jesus, Muhammed was a sadistic sociopath, a mass murderer, a human slaver and slave trafficker, a serial rapist and sex slaver, a brutal tongue cutting, hand hacking, foot chopping, eyeball burning torturer, a sexual deviant and child rapist, a perfidious liar, a looting, stealing thief, a hateful misogynist, an intolerant supremecist bigot, an obsessed head chopping decapitator, a violent warlord, a genocidist and a self proclaimed Islamic terrorist.

    Muhammed was by any objective standard one of the most vile examples of of a man in the pantheon of human history, a 7th century Arabian Hitler, a Meccan Charles Manson….only more perfectly evil than either of those monsters.

    Muhammed should be reviled, not revered, and like Manson he should have been incarcerated, not venerated. Yet is this human deviant, this sadistic criminal who informs the values of and is the the moral standard bearer of 1 billion Muslims.

    Is it any wonder this Muslim, Yusuf Ibrahim, could commit such an vile and detestable act…the cutting off of the heads and hands of a fellow human being? Could any of you do such a thing? Probably only if you too were a sadistic sociopathic criminal, or a follower of Muhammed.

    The hard truth.

    القرآن كل مهامه إرسال رسائل مفخخة مبطنة وسط بعض حقائق،الإنسان بلا دين أراه أرحم من مسلم متمرس ، لهم أعين ولا يبصرون، لو إن عندهم العجائب والشفاءات التي تحصل عند المسيحيين ماذا كانوا فعلوا، وكل ما نراه من قتل للمسيحيين في البلدان العربية كل هاذا الكره ناتج عن الشيطان الذي في داخلهم الذي يكره الصليب، وأغلب الإسلام فاهمين دين المسيحية غلط لأنه يفسر لهم من قبل مسلم.لا يوجد إلا حقيقة واحدة ، الله هو نفسه الأمس واليوم والغد ولا يغير رأيه كما كما ادعى محمد , أشياء كثيرة لا يمكن اكتشافها إلا بإكتشاف حب الله،. الإنجيل مكتوب من الروح القدس ولا بشر كما يعتقدون ولم يتغير مضمونة مع الوقت لأن الله حارص عليه يقول المسيح، وهم يعتقدون أن الآيات أنزلت على محمد أما أنا فأعتقد انها طلعت إليه من تحت. غرضه إنكار المسيح.الشر عندما يأتي، يأتي بثياب حملان وهاذه حالهم، ولاكن قريباً سيضيء الصليب ويراه الجميع وكما يقول المسيح المجيء الأوّل للفداء، والمجيء الثّاني لجمع الشّمل. وهذا ما عبّرت عنه الآية المباركة: “هكذا المسيحُ أيْضًا، بعْدَما قُدِّم مرَّةً لكيْ يحْمِلَ خَطايا كَثيرينَ، سَيَظْهَر ثانيَةً بلا خَطيَّة للْخَلاص للَّذينَ يَنْتَظرُونهُ” (عبرانيّين 9: 28).ذوقوا وانظروا ما أطيب الرب. كما ويقول المسيح سوف يآتي بعده انبياء كذبة يعطون ايات عظيمة و يضللون كثيرين، وفي آية أخرى يقول ويقول احترزوا من الانبياء الكذبة الذين يأتونكم بثياب الحملان ولكنهم من داخل ذئاب خاطفة من ثمارهم تعرفونهم
