ISIS beheads U.S Journalist as retaliation for U.S airstrikes

Islamic State insurgents released a video yesterday Tuesday August 19th purportedly showing the beheading of U.S. journalist James Foley (pictured above), who had gone missing in Syria nearly two years ago, and images of another U.S. journalist whose life they said depended on U.S. action in Iraq.


The video, titled "A Message To America," was posted on social media sites. It was not immediately possible to verify its authenticity.

Foley, who has reported in the Middle East for five years, was kidnapped on Nov. 22, 2012, by unidentified gunmen. Steven Sotloff, who appeared at the end of the video, went missing in northern Syria while he was reporting in July 2013. Continue...
A Twitter account set up by his family to help find him said early on Wednesday: "We know that many of you are looking for confirmation or answers. Please be patient until we all have more information, and keep the Foleys in your thoughts and prayers."

The White House said that U.S. intelligence agents were working to verify the authenticity of a video.
The Islamic State had not previously executed American citizens publicly. The video was posted after the United States resumed air strikes in Iraq for the first time since the end of the U.S. occupation in 2011.

The Sunni militant group has declared a caliphate in parts of Iraq and Syria in areas it controls.
The video opened with a clip of U.S. President Barack Obama saying he had authorized strikes in Iraq.

"Obama authorizes military operations against the Islamic State effectively placing America upon a slippery slope towards a new war front against Muslims," words appear in English and Arabic on the screen.
It showed black and white aerial footage of air strikes with text saying "American aggression against the Islamic State"

A person identified as James Foley and wearing an orange outfit is seen kneeling in the desert as a man in black dress with a black mask stands beside him, holding a knife.

"I call on my friends family and loved ones to rise up against my real killers, the U.S. government, for what will happen to me is only a result of their complacency and criminality," the kneeling man says.

The man in the mask speaks in a British accent and says: "This is James Wright Foley, an American citizen, of your country. As a government, you have been at the forefront of the aggression towards the Islamic State."

"Today your military air force is attacking us daily in Iraq. Your strikes have caused casualties amongst Muslims. You are no longer fighting an insurgency. We are an Islamic army, and a state that has been accepted by a large number of Muslims worldwide."

Following his statement he beheads the kneeling man.

At the end of the video, words on the side of the screen say "Steven Joel Sotloff" as another prisoner in an orange jumpsuit is shown on screen.

"The life of this American citizen, Obama, depends on your next decision," the masked man says.

Foley, a freelance reporter, had been covering Syria’s civil war for GlobalPost. In 2011, he was held for 45 days by forces loyal to former Libyan leader Muammar Gadaafi.

Sotloff is also a freelancer journalist with published stories in Time Magazine and Foreign Policy. He has worked in Syria, Libya and Yemen.


White House spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said: "We have seen a video that purports to be the murder of U.S. citizen James Foley by ISIL. The intelligence community is working as quickly as possible to determine its authenticity.
"If genuine, we are appalled by the brutal murder of an innocent American journalist and we express our deepest condolences to his family and friends."

Islamic State also released another video on Tuesday that gave the strongest indication yet it might attempt to strike American targets.

The video with the theme "breaking of the American cross" boasts Islamic State will emerge victorious over "crusader" America.

It follows a video posted on Monday, warning of attacks on American targets if Washington struck against its fighters in Iraq and Syria.

This same ISIS group that most of you are all just hearing about is the same ISIS (together with Jabhat Al-Nusra, Abu Bammer,FSA,etc) that Bashar Al-Assad has been fighting in Syria for the past 3 plus years. The same ISIS that Senator McCain paid a solidarity visit in 2013! The same ISIS that have been clothed in the garment of "moderates" to sell the idea of arming them overtly to the gullible American public. The same "moderates" (ISIS) that Obama has asked congress for an additional 500 million to arm. The same "moderates" that have been the recipients of non-lethal aid (those gleaming new trucks and all) for the past 3 years from the West.The same ISIS that has committed far worse atrocities on Christians, Alawites, Shia and others in Syria than the events unfolding in Iraq and to the Yazidis in particular since 2011!! Why didn't Uncle Sam come to the rescue then?  
 
ISIS is a terror horde created by the CIA and Mossad, fiananced by  Saudi and Qatar petrodollar (Yes, believe it or not, Saudi & Qatar are in cahoots with Israel and the US by unleashing wahabist/salafist elements that espouse a violent brand of Sunni Islam against the Iranian dominated shia crescent that both Israel & Saudi & Qatar see as a threat ), trained in Jordan and supported logistically by Turkey with the U. S. Embassy in Ankara serving as operational headquarters. Now one of the terrorist groups, Al-Nusra has been delisted by Turkey (NATO member) and what's more, this same Al Nusra has merged with ISIL otherwise known as ISIS and now known as IS.
 
The end goal is to destablize the entire middle east: Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Iran, and so on....And who ends up as the benefactor of the turmoil unleashed? Israel (Or Greater Israel as the plan would be). You think this charade of a bombing campaign is gonna stop ISIS? ISIS will soon come knocking on the gates of Beirut and finally Tehran..... This is all state sponsored terrorism courtesy of the great United States of America!
 
Now, before y'all go all bananas and start raining abuses and insults, I beseech you to go research these facts yourself, pour through the information available to you and then arrive as you OWN, INDEPENDENT thought - not one that the MSM wants you to arrive at. Do not be deceived!
 
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me!
 o not be deceived by this charade in which America appears to be fighting ISIS.

American Journalist Slain by America's ISIS Mercenaries? Irony or Hollywood Production? 

US-Saudi-Israeli ISIS mercenaries allegedly saw off the head of an American journalist, James Wright Foley. The video appears to be a production out of the same studios producing them during the Iraq conflict, with a man totally covered up and speaking with a "quasi-British as a second language" accent. The actual beheading is blurred and cut short after only seconds of what may or may not be actual murder. Then a blurred image of a "body" with what may or may not be a head placed upon the torso is shown... 

Since the ISIS is a creation of the West, and is half Hollywood production itself, half actual nightmare, we can't be certain of the veracity of ANYTHING being reported on it by the Western media. They are CERTAINLY slaughtering real Syrians and Iraqis, and have been for years with NATO cash, arms, and covert support. More likely however, is that the killing of this American - alleged or real - was a stunt designed to further distance ISIS from its actual handlers - the US, KSA, Israel, and NATO. 

Luckily for the West, the general public apparently is still swayed easily enough by token airstrikes, geopolitical manipulation, and false flags to believe the West has no culpability for the atrocities being committed by a mercenary army they openly created over the last 7 years. 

Here, once again, is my piece for years ago, about the creation of an Al Qaeda mercenary army BY the US, Saudi Arabia, and Israel...

I'd like to say that the whole Middle East needs to be completely and utterly eradicated from the face of the planet. I realize that there are some good people there, but the problem is that the "good people" put up with, and allow, these extremists free run within their borders. By harboring these extremists they are putting themselves and everyone else in danger.

If the people of the Middle East are unwilling to eradicate these extremists then they have to face the consequences of their actions.

I don't understand why some people post things they don't have concrete information about. Is Anonymous supporting ISIS or what? Everything he's stated about the West being the ones who have funded ISIS is all lies...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_State_of_Iraq_and_the_Levant. Everything you need to know about this terror whatever is captured there. People who support terrorism in the name of religion or excuses shows why such exists. I mean all these acts of aggression against a fellow human is just barbaric and unacceptable.

You just go online and read an article based on someone's perspective of a situation that makes sense to you then you come on social media and write nonsense. Tell me, what is America or Isreal's benefit of ISIS Becoming a nation. Do you even know that there were some ISIS members fighting alongside Hamas in the operation protective edge (latest conflict with Israel)?
It's Saudi Arabia and Qatar that are jubilating on ISIS' victory in secret especially Qatar because they are actually in odd terms with Saudi Arabia about sponsoring terror groups like Muslim Brotherhood, at least that's what the media wants us to believe.

The servants of "Almighty Allah" are at it again...
The pattern of beheading should not be lost on us...
Allah particularly enjoined that formula for dealing with the disbelievers..
According to Qur'an 47: 4, Allah's warriors are charged to "Behead the disbelievers…"
In Qu 9: 5, Allah tasks Moslems to kill the Mushrikun (i.e. Christians, Jews, Polytheists, etc) when the 1st, 7th, 11th and 12th months of the Islamic calender have passed; it maintains they should kill them wherever you find them and lie in wait for them and capture them and besiege them and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush; but spare them if they turn to Allah and perform as salat and zakat, because Allah is very oft forgiving and most merciful"!!!!!!
For according to Qur'an 9 v. 19, "Those who fight in the cause of Allah rank superior among Moslems…"
