Al-Nusra Front Video Shows Prepping Execution of Saudis

Al-Nusra Front jihadists fighting in Syria have just uploaded another video to YouTube showing the usual 'pre-execution' formalities of two men.  You know, all that jabbering about whatever crime the soon-to-be dead are guilty of before the customary allahu akbars, and subsequent execution. Since the men are uniformed you might think they're Bashar al-Assad's men, since the rebels are supposedly there fighting the regime. But in this case, the men were actually Saudis who were fighting with al-Nusra before supposedly switched to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), another al-Qaeda-linked group.

According to Al Arabiya, the executioner (gun in hand) recites some verses from the Quran,  mentions the ages and birthplaces of the men, and then accuses them of "betraying" al-Nusra. The video ends before they are executed, at least on the video Al Arabiya posted on its website.

Apparently, al-Nusra and ISIS are now also fighting each other. There are so many different foreign jihadist groups in Syria, maybe they'll just kill each other off. I say have at it boys.

Video on Al Arabiya.
