    I haven't seen this posted. How much worse can it get.

    His motivation was to show his distaste for American imperialism.

    Your motivation is to misconstrue arguments so you can keep believing what you want.

    And what is that I am believing that I want without regards to reality?
    Would like to see you not straw man your way out of this question.

    You are putting up a strawman by claiming others are asserting that the reason someone commits a crime is because they are angry about imperialism.

    That is not the argument. Maybe you should try to understand something before you try to mock it.

    No, there are many here who believe this man's motivations have nothing to do with Islam.

    Well, before y'all have the same acrimonious debate, just note that this entire thread topic is "alleged" and comes via the Washington Times (and click-hungry Newsweek after that, with no additional reporting or verification).

    So... somebody just claimed there was a crucifixion, but apparently media-obsessed ISIS didn't take any pictures or video. (Not that I'd want to see it, mind you). In sum: this very well might not have happened. I'm sure they are killing and torturing people in any case.
