PS: don't take this to the bank, but as far as I know, the favorite fetish of crazed Wahabis (Chechnia, Bosnia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Algeria, etc.) for cutting the throats of their prisoners comes from a desire to be Ikhwan-like as the latter are the ones who started this fashion. I am not sure about that though, nor do I know where the Ikhwan got that idea.
Does anybody know if there any Koranic or "Sunnic" (is that English?) basis for throat-cutting?
