The Seventh Century — Now with Cell Phone Cameras

Video is circulating online of a Catholic priest being beheaded in Syria by Al Qaeda-linked rebels on June 23rd.  He was a Franciscan, Fr. Francois Murad.

It looks like something out of the seventh century, except for the part where the crowd whips out their cell phones.

And how exactly will we prevent the arms we’re providing from reaching these evil crazies?
