With the poisonous gas attack in Syria, the world is seeing once again the lack of respect for life of the innocent.
But just days before the gas attack another horrific incident occurred overseas.
A video of Muslim men throwing accused homosexuals from a rooftop in Libya was posted to Twitter by a local journalist on Sunday.
The killing was done as a form of punishment for disobeying the Sharia law, a strict interpretation of an Islamic set of principles, according to Tarek Fatah.
The authenticity of the video was unclear, but in the 45-second clip, apparent Muslims can be seen chanting "Allah-U-Akbar" as they throw four purportedly gay people off a rooftop.
The incident allegedly took place in Libya, and the date, as well as the victims' gender, were unknown.
Towards the end of the clip, a bystander walked toward the unmoving bodies.
However, it remained unclear if he was a part of the act since he stood on the sidewalk as the bodies dropped one by one.
Under Sharia law, homosexuality "is a vile form of fornication, punishable by death," according to TheReligionofPeace.com.
