Thousands of heads were removed from their necks during the French revolution, the jihadists in Somalia seem to want to follow in their footsteps. 11 beheadings in a few weeks, and they are just beginning. Since beheadings are in the Qur'an there is no reason to think these grisly murders are an anomaly.
As it says in 47:4: "Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in battle), smite them at their necks..."
Just following orders, sir!

Somali Islamists behead 11 civilians in capital

"We wake up with beheaded bodies on the streets every day," said Abdinur Marwan, who lives in a district of Mogadishu called Hewila. "They call themselves Muslims while doing what Allah banned! Everyone is trying to leave here because people are being killed like goats."
