"WOW, blood, beheadings, murder, mayhem. Is this the most popular story that came out from islamic lands? Sounds more like a low production horror movie, ... This is the sort of fairy tales of the muslim world. You must be really proud of it"

What you described is embedded in the pages of the good news Bible and is restated in the Quran. I am not necessarily proud, but I see a great deal of connection between the mayhem stories in the bible and their revival in the Quran. It seems that beheading started in the Bible and did not end in the Quran. Obviously, none of the mentioned ,be it the Bible or the Quran, can be described as Western, but the west tends to describe itself as such. Judeo-Christian. And now Judeo-Chrisian Islamic minoritied.

Get you a Middle East free culture if you want me to believe you. Hiding behind NON-WESTERN Judeo-Christianity is an expression that the west was uncultured and not until touched by the middle eastern tradition that Westerners ever existed culturally.
