Isis Militants Behead Abducted American Journalist
A grisly video released Tuesday shows Islamic State militants beheading American journalist, James Foley, in what the extremists called a retaliation for recent U.S. airstrikes in Iraq.
In the nearly five-minute video, titled “A Message to America,” a masked executioner is seen severing James Foley’s head with a knife in a sadistic act of revenge.
The gruesome footage was posted on YouTube last night after the marauding army of evil, also known as ISIS, vowed: “We will drown all of you in blood.”
Foley, 40, of New Hampshire, was a freelance reporter for the Boston-based GlobalPost. He was abducted in Syria 22 months ago while covering that country’s civil war.
According to Daily News, after killing the handcuffed Foley, a cloaked terrorist left the victim’s head on the small of his back. The bloodthirsty executioner was also seen grabbing another American journalist, Steven Sotloff, 31, of Miami, a contributor for Time magazine. Sotloff was kidnapped near the Syrian-Turkish border in August 2013.
The killer stared into the camera and vowed in what sounded like a British accent, “The life of this American citizen, Obama, depends on your next decision.”
Foley's family confirmed his death in a statement posted on a Facebook page that was created to rally support for his release, saying they "have never been prouder of him."
"He gave his life trying to expose the world to the suffering of the Syrian people," said the statement, which was attributed to Foley's mother, Diane Foley. She implored the militants to spare the lives of other hostages. "Like Jim, they are innocents. They have no control over American government policy in Iraq, Syria or anywhere in the world."
It's sad how these group of militant destroy innocent lives and family. They have to value for the human life. They kill both young and old for no reason. Our prayers go out to the family of James Foley. I wish American journalists could stop going to these terrorists/war zones. This can't continue to happen. It's so devastating that they still killed him after being kidnapped for almost years.
We ask that God protect the remaining American captives and we pray James Foley soul rest in perfect peace. Amen.
