Behead; allow to decompose; re-attach head

Little Green Footballs reports

Sheik Muhsen Al-’Awaji: When all this began, the people of Denmark insisted, in a premeditated and unprecedented way, on humiliating our Prophet.
Imagine that someone is beheaded, and then he is told: “Put it back on, while the blood is still flowing.” But he behaves arrogantly and stubbornly, until the head decomposes - and only then does he want to put it back on. Similarly, an apology today - if it is even offered - is unacceptable, because the whole issue has begun to rot.
Then we wonder why we have so much trouble communicating with these people. That image will probably live with me forever, but I've got absolutely no idea what it might refer to. Behead; allow to decompose; re-attach head. Yes. I'm not sure how to deal with this. I don't remember my mother ever mentioning it.

Read it all. It begins by describing how Arabs defend the honour of a female camel.
