-- Islamic hatred of Egyptian Copts comes to the U.S. to roost --

Yusuf Ibrahim had been driving a Mercedes Benz owned by one of the dead men.

Police say they've nabbed a New Jersey man who fatally shot two men before beheading them, chopping off their hands and burying their remains in the woods of south Jersey.

Cops arrested Yusuf Ibrahim, 28, of Jersey City on Sunday after detectives found the bodies of the two men, aged 25 and 27, behind a home in Buena Vista Township, according to a press release. Their severed heads and hands were discovered at a separate burial site.

The investigation into the grisly murder began Thursday following reports of suspicious activity at the Buena Vista home. Cadaver dogs located the bodies, which both suffered a single gunshot wound to their chests.

Detectives found the bodies of two men, aged 25 and 27, behind a home in Buena Vista Township, N.J.

Authorities eventually identified Ibrahim as the prime subject. The alleged murderer had been driving a white Mercedes Benz last week that belonged to one of the men. Authorities found the car, which had been set on fire, abandoned in Philadelphia.

The two victims, also from Jersey City, were roommates, friends told Philadelphia’s NBC10. One of the men moved to the U.S. from Egypt four years ago.

Their connection to Ibrahim remains unclear.

Ibrahim allegedly hid the bodies in a wooded area in south Jersey.

Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Williams thanked police for working through the weekend's snowstorm to arrest Ibrahim.

"I hope the capture and arrest of this man for these heinous crimes will provide closure to the families of the victims and put the community of Buena Vista Township at ease," he said.

Ibrahim is currently being held at the Atlantic County jail. He faces charges of murder and desecration of human remains.

Some comments from article site:

The victim was a Coptic Christian. Copts are murdered DAILY in Egypt and it's become worse since Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood took power. This incident in NJ is a sign that Muslims are feeling more empowered and are not afraid to do "Allah's work" ~~ this verse from Koran the comes to mind ~ " Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace " (9:14) Koran My question is: Where will Coptic Christians, or any other non-muslim seeking to escape muslim persecution, go? America was always a place for those seeking refuge from inhumane ideologies and governments. Now the our government has allowed the Islamists in to our country we have lost. If AMerica does not address this problem, we will eventually become like muslim nations........ this is only the beginning. And for the record, It is not Islamophobia to question, critique and acknowledge the inhumanity of Islam. America needs to stop buying in to the narrative of the main stream media, and our own government. Americans need to stand up ! This man and many others ( including muslims who are liberty minded) will thank us for that.

Its amazing, once again the liberal mainstream propaganda media wont cover a story of the psychosis of Islam. If a christian had beheaded a Muslim in this country,, Oh My God, this story would go on for months and some prime time movie would be made. The reality of American news and media is mind blowingly bizarre and backwards. I literally cannot wrap my head around this.

These peaceful muslims certainly do enjoy beheading people-- but I thought they took a dim view of stealing. Guess it was ok to steal the Mercedes since it belonged to a non muslim.

"Ibrahim is currently being held at the Atlantic County jail. He faces charges of murder and desecration of human remains."

Sounds like just another common criminal with the Islamic touch thrown in. I hope this story gets wide coverage despite what I am sure CAIR will say about it being just one bad man. It is more than that and they know it. But they'll never admit it, one can hope the truth comes out at trial, despite CAIR's attempt to downplay it which is their standard response in things like this, they only get loud at any perceived insult or persecution of muslims.

Perhaps it`s time to start deporting all the idiots who don`t appreciate the new life they have in America. If you don`t like the western society - LEAVE already. Let some other immigrant have a chance. There are many who would willingly take your spot.

I get really sick of the Muslim bashing on here. There are sick, screwed up people everywhere. The christians have a much longer, bloodier history of violence than the Muslims. I by no means condone or approve of this mans actions. I am simply saying, don't bash millions of people based on the actions of one or a few.

Stuff like this is happening more and more in this country. We should of shut our borders after 9/11. But we didn't and now everyone wants to come here and force us to adhere to their beliefs, no more prayer in school, wanting to take God off our money, no more pledge of Allegiance, etc. etc . I say close our borders and force them all out of the woodwork. Thorough background checks BEFORE they get in and tracking once they come into our country. Have them report to immigration once a month to check in. If they miss a check-in, deport them!. Have homeland security make sure they are where they say they are. No weapons permitted to people here on Visas' . Tired of terrorists coming here! And we are leaving them in!! WTF!

wakey-dakey. i can and will "bash" mohammedans any chance i get because i give a crap about women (particularly mohammedan women, who know "war on women" to a far greater depth of pain than any western women can even imagine). each and every one of your billion or so "non-violent" mohammedans thinks it's not only acceptable, but in most cases OBLIGATORY to:
1. beat his wife if she refuses to give him any (mohammedan women aren't allowed to not be in the mood)
2. forbid his wife from leaving the house without him, or a relative agreed on by him, accompanying her; and forbid her from having anyone visit without his permission
3. have his daughters' genitals hacked up (fgm)
4. marry his daughters to whom he chooses with or without her consent
5. forbid wives/daughters to do things you take for granted such as talk to a non-relative male, drive, vote, get a job
6. punish women or girls for adultery (jail time, public flogging, stoning, hanging off a crane) if they get raped unless 4 men will testify they SAW it and she protested enough for it to be rape (but really if she protested enough he/they couldn't have raped her, so she clearly wanted it...ergo adulteress)
7. limit women's inheritance to half of mens
8. kill all gays and lesbians no questions asked (KILL, execute by law, not just say they are abominations and can't get married, but actually murder them on sight)
9. kill anyone who dares to leave their wonderful peaceful religion
10. crucify or behead people who don't think it's so wonderful and peaceful and say so (which is what happened to these poor coptic men).

without blowing anything up, to me this sounds pretty violent already, at least if you have the misfortune to be born a girl in one of their hell-hole countries or their enclaves (self-made ghettoes) in the west. but you disagree?

and like most of those here who despise this ideology (not its victims who got born into it) i bash it not because of the actions of a few, but the inherent violence day-to-day the women and kids suffer by the actions of the many, and the inherent evil of the ideology behind both the actions of the few AND the many. the mohammedan people are sorely oppressed by the ideology, and like sufferers of battered women syndrome don't want to escape it. and they don't want you to either. will you sign up for fgm, give up your job to be chattel, have sex on command, etc?

uh-huh. didn't think so. then you might wanna get busy "bashing" it too. (not the people, just the ideology) unless you will accept the above list for yourself &/or your daughters how DARE you say it's acceptable for other women and their kids to live like that?

The "religion of peace' strikes again! There is no "terrorism"n in the world today; this must be "neighborhood violence" or whatever term the administration of Mullah Obama is assigning to this incident if it even appears on their radar. Not a Zimmeman/Martin case so not likely it will rise to the attention of Dear Leader since it isn't an "injustice" that he cares about.

I dated a Muslim for a while, here in the united states and he treated me like a queen, breaking point for us was that I didn't want to go to Turkey being American, I didn't feel safe. Not all Muslims are fundamentalist freaks, most live very peaceful compassionate lives. I would say many of the terrorist trained under Bin Laden prob know more what our government is capable of, than the average American citizen, blowing up hundreds of thousands of innocents in Iraq and Afghanistan hasn't helped our image either.

I, too, have known a number of Muslims who are nice people. Many people don't even know what their own religion is about nor have read the texts holy to their religion, so you can't judge people simply because they are nominally Christian, Muslim, etc.

Each individual, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, height (I'm pretty short), deserves to be treated with the respect any human being deserves -- unless they have shown that they have harmful intentions.

We shouldn't pick on people because they were born into a faith, race or country -- they have no control over that.

Unfortunately, there are some characteristics that are more common to Islam than to other religious/ethnic groups -- beheading is one (and that is a main facet of this article) -- that is not uncommonly used in the Islamic world. However, in no way am I saying that if one is a Muslim, then one will necessarily behead people or that most do.

There are many, many pictures and videos of beheadings in the Islamic world, and they are very disturbing. The founder of Islam, Muhammad, and his followers were very fond of beheading people, as you can read about in the texts holy to Islam. In the course of one day, Muhammad ordered his followers to behead some 800 men and boys.

There is another disturbing facet to this article. That is -- if anyone has been paying attention to what's been posted on C2NN during these past few months -- I and others have posted many articles about the continued and escalated harassment, threats, murders, kidnappings, forced conversions, rapes, etc., by Egyptian Muslims -- mostly Salafis and MBs -- of Coptic Christians, who only comprise ~10% of the population.

Egypt, prior to the invasion of Islamic Arab hordes from Arabia where Muhammad was from, was primarily a Christian country, but Islam took over. Under Islamic Sharia, Christians and Jews were "allowed" to continue to live in Egypt, but they had to pay a humiliating tax to Muslims called "Jizya". Christians and Jews were not allowed to be higher than Muslims, thus C&Js were not allowed to ride horses. C&J had to dress distinctly different from Muslims, move out of the way on the street for Muslims, their houses of worship were not allowed to be repaired and not allowed to be higher or bigger than mosques, etc. These are some of laws of Dhimmitude, and there are other other major inequities between the treatment of Muslims and Christians under Shaira.

So getting back to the point of the article, Coptic Christians in Egypt are being violently harassed in the ways I've mentioned earlier. Christian girls are abducted, forced to convert to Islam, raped, impregnated and never get to see their families again. Egyptian Muslims kill Christians, but under Sharia aren't punished for it. Although many of the Muslims who are protesting against the Muslim Brotherhood/Salafist government reject this treatment of Christians, the protestors are not in power. Things are getting worse and worse by the day.

*See the article posted the same day as this article -- Islam or Death? Egypt's Christians Targeted By New Terror Group,

So what is very alarming is that Coptic Christians who seek refuge in the U.S. can't get away from the Muslim violence and death threats -- even here -- where the Copts SHOULD BE safe.

Yet, here were two relatively young Coptic Christians who were shot and beheaded for their religion. Other Coptic Christians who have fled Egypt to find safety here are shuddering. Where can they be safe?

This is also part of a greater trend of Muslims bringing parts of their culture here that are an anathema to an open society. Honor killings (the majority of them in the world being committed by Muslims) are showing up in the U.S. Daughters have been murdered, run over by cars driven by their fathers, heads slammed against coffee tables repeatedly and so on, because the daughters became to "Americanized" or wanted to be free of the shame/honor-based culture.

There are so many things that are way beyond the scope of this discussion.

Sure, we have our own criminals that do heinous things, but there are some crimes and criminals that have a particular Islamic signature, and they are growing more numerous and frequent.

The media more often than not does not report these incidents, and we are simply trying to give people a heads-up. This is not an excuse to hate Muslims. This is an attempt to say that there are many Orthodox Muslims who have an agenda that is completely incompatible with our constitution that make fundamentalist Christians look pretty tame by comparison.

We're just alerting you to a *little bit* of what's going on, that we feel that you might not otherwise read or hear about in the mainstream media. That is essentially it.

yes, klaus, as an infidel, one can never trust them. the rules of decency, what few there are in mohammedanism, don't protect the kaffir.

tiffany, one of my best friends was treated like a princess by her mohammedan boyfriend. unlike you she did marry him and went to his home country as their honeymoon, and then it was more like prisoner than princess. the last time she contacted us, she let us know she was being taken to a rural area and even if she could sneak calls or letters out the beatings weren't worth it. we haven't had any news a long time. thanks to obama's arab spring (why does the "springtime for hitler" song always pop in my head when i say that?) and what's going on there now (syria) i doubt she's even alive, not safe to go there to look either, now. i wish we could have earlier. love isn't just blind, it's stupid, too.

beth, recall this isn't the first beheading in the states. the (mohammedan) woman in upstate new york was, while her kids were waiting out in the car for her. she wanted a divorce and that dishonored her husband, so, well, you see he had no choice.

Yes, Cousin It, that poor man who beheaded his wife, was the victim, as the perverse Islamic mind twists it.

That's why, despite Islam being the aggressor in almost every situation in the world where Islam is fighting with non-Muslims (or Muslims of other sects), Islam claims to be the victim.

Most people cannot wrap their heads around the Muslim way of seeing things, because it's so bizarre, no one can process it. The West is taken in by the constant taqiyya, because we can't fathom people would swear by allah and lie unashamedly. But in Islam it's quite alright to lie to non-Muslims. People need to know the kind of sickness that is Islam that we're dealing with.
