URGENT Video: ISIL beheads American Journalist, threatens to kill another

vvvv


(IraqiNews.com) WARNING CONTAINS GRAPHIC VIDEO AND IMAGES BELOW

The organization of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant announced on Tuesday evening the beheading of the American journalist James Foley, who was abducted in Syria, and killed in retaliation for the American air strikes against its fighters in Iraq.

An Islamist website broadcast the graphic video below showing a masked person slaughtering the American journalist who was abducted by gunmen in Syria in November 2012.

Foley was a freely reporter who participated in the coverage of the war in Libya before heading to Syria to cover the conflict in favor of the “Global Post” and other media. He also provided press reports to  the France Press Agency during  his presence there.

The witnesses confirmed the kidnapping of Foley in Syria on 22 November 2012. There was no news about him since then, despite a campaign to get information.

The ISIS video titled “A Message To America” begins with footage earlier this month of Obama announcing his decision to authorize military airstrikes in Iraq against ISIS targets.

“I call on my friends, family and loved ones to rise up against the real criminals, the U.S. government, for what will happen to me is only the result of their complacency and criminality,” the man, who the masked man later identifies as Foley, said.

“My message to my beloved parents: save me some dignity and don’t accept any meager compensation for my death from the same people who effectively hit the last nail in my coffin with their recent areal campaign in Iraq,” the man, who is dressed in orange clothes, said.

“I call on my brother John, who is a member of the U.S. air force, think about what you are doing, think about the lives that you destroy including those of your own family. I call on you John: Think about who made the decision to bomb Iraq, to kill those people, whoever they may have been. Think John: who did they really kill? Did they think about me, you or our family when they made that decision?” he said.

“I died that day John: when your colleagues dropped that bomb on those people, they signed my death certificate. I wish I had more time. I wish I could have the hope of freedom to see my family again but that ship sailed.

“I guess all in all: I wish I was not an American,” he concludes, before the masked man, pointing a dagger at the reporter’s head, identifies his captive as Foley.

“This is James Wright Foley, an American citizen of your country. As a government you have been at the forefront of the aggression toward the Islamic State [ISIS]. You have plotted against us and gone far out of your way to find reasons to interfere in our affairs,” the masked man said in a British or North African English accent.

“Today, your military air force is attacking us daily in Iraq, your strikes have caused casualties amongst the Muslims,” the man, speaking in what sounded like a British accent, said.

“You [the United States] 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.

“So effectively, any aggression toward the Islamic State, is an aggression toward Muslims from all walks of life, who have accepted the Islamic caliphate as their leadership,” he said.

At this point the executioner beheads Foley, who is kneeling bravely with hands tied behind his back. His body is displayed with the head atop the body.

folley

Then in another chilling warning, the executioner holds another man, on his kness with his hands tied behind his back, by the scruff of the neck. A caption claims it is Steven Joel Soltoff.


The executioner says: ‘The life of this American citizen, Obama, depends on your next decision.’

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.”

  1. Those people who murdered James Foley in such a brutal, sadistic and cowardly way do their cause no good whatsoever. The Americans should hunt each and every one of them down and ensure they spend their life’s in prison. It’s nothing short of disgusting. As for the so called uk citizen who carried it out, he’s obviously got no hope in his life, otherwise he wouldn’t be over their fighting for a cause he obviously doesn’t understand, with people he doesn’t know. Brain dead!!

  2. Totally agree with you Brian. I’m Muslim myself and as a Muslim I will never understand that kind of cause those animals are fighting for.

    /NoIsIs

  3. IF THIS “COWARD” WAS SO PROUD OF HIS “CAUSE,” WOULD HE NOT BE PROUD TO SHOW HIS FACE? AND YET INSTEAD HE CHOOSES TO HIDE HIS SHAME AND DISGUST OF HIMSELF BEHIND A MASK BECAUSE HE KNOWS HE SHAMES ALLAH!!! PERHAPS HE CAN’T EVEN STAND TO LOOK AT HIMSELF IN THE MIRROR!!

    THEY ARE ANIMALS DOING INHUMANE, CRUEL, DESPICABLE, SICKENING, DISGUSTING, UNIMAGINABLE THINGS YOU WOULDN’T EVEN DO TO ANOTHER ANIMAL! FOR THESE ACTIONS OF THEIRS, THEY WILL GO TO THE DEPTHS OF HELL THAT WE TOLERANT AND KINDER FOLKS WILL NEVER KNOW…..AND THAT’S BECAUSE I BELIEVE IN KARMA!!!

  4. To me, the Problem is not with the ISIS. Isis is the symptom or the direct effect of the doctrine they believed in it. How it is possible to balance such barbaric ideology in the 21 century is not far from bizarre. The saddest fact is, they are still licensed to do whatever they want as far as the monster-minded family in Saudiarabia , who has been sponsoring all these evil creatures, has enough petrol to blind the western world.

  5. Respect humanity.Don’t kill innocent people.
    ISIS belongs to no religion ,they are terrorist ,they don’t have heart.
    they are disrespecting their own religion by doing such inhuman act.
    Don’t forget that there is GOD who is watching everything.
    He will definitely punish hard one day to those who do such heinous act.
    Rest to peace to all passed hearts.
    GOD please save innocent(my brothers and sisters)
    —Jai(from India)

  6. I’ve watched this multiple times now, including frame by frame, and I have to think it was staged. There’s no jugglar spray pattern apparent on the ground, there’s multiple fade outs indicating they repositioned something or someone during those fades, there’s zero blood as ‘Foley’s’ head is pulled back and the sawing action begins before a fade, the expression on the face of the head is nearly unchanged from the last shot of the head attached, and there appears to be no blood on the ‘killers’ hands or clothing at the very end when he’s next to the other guy.

  7. If ISIS had any Balls, the person Beheading this man, James Foley. To remove the mask and show the world WHO you are as you do this Barbaric act. That is no better than Hitler 50 years ago. So why do Amercia just sit and watch OUR Americans get Kill. OBAMA you need to Destory ISIS as soon as possible. Before more American have the same faith as James Foley. STOP then now. They kill there own people so what are Amercian to them Nothing. They will continue do theses animal act. Unless we fine a way to stop soon. May The Lord be with James Foley.

    • They need to just kill the chicken s–t son of b*****s go in get all the good people out and then turn that place into a nuclear waste dump the he’ll with them murders kill them all

  8. With this action, they are only legitimizing once again the fact that these beasts should be eradicated from the face of the earth, and if there was any doubt about it before, now it is clear that USA and any country fighting them should go on, even harder if possible. We don’t negotiate with terrorists! And the family of Foley have shown strength and dignity!

  9. ISIS,
    Dont kill anymore people, Steven Joel Soltoff should be given a chance to convert. That is the Korans command.Peace be with you.

    • Why in the hell should he have had to convert? Do you see Christians forcing Muslims to convert and then cut their heads off if they don’t? That is some Allah..

      • If they want to convert, then they should spare there life. Its very simple. Im sure that they wouldn’t kill those who share there same beliefs.

  10. I wonder if Obama and the other bleeding heart liberals are beginning to get the message now. These are not ordinary criminals to whom you read their Miranda rights before arresting them. Discussions of torture by US liberals who castigated the US for using “torture techniques” only encourages these psychopaths to increase their killing in every dimension the human mind can imagine. The bleeding heart liberals whined and cried about the brutality of Gitmo. Well, you know what I am still very doubtful that they even come close to understanding what the US is dealing with.

  11. RIP Mr. Journalist. God bless your family and I hope they can find comfort in your incredible courage. ISIS are not helping their cause. I hope American Special Forces gather in mass and put a stop these maniacs. We need to do something.

  12. I don’t particularly like Americans (to be precise, their government) because of their invasive method of invading countries, but after seeing this video and this sadistic prick. I can only say: nuke their a*s down! Those f*** should earn special cell in Gitmo!

  13. It is time for US and UK to carry out carpet bombing the entire area controlled by the Islamic fanatics. Please please do it, it is time to clean up before this kind of Islamic believe spread.

  14. He may hide behind that mask. However, the accent is from Tower Hamlets, East London. That is a 3 mile radius. The bit I don’t get, all these foreign invaders are rarely Arab. So their cause is to rid Iraq of who exactly? ISIS is one of the worst cases of foreign occupation ever. They claim to attack the Shiah, but the Kurds are mostly Sunni, so that case is flawed. So it seems the only objective is for a bunch of foreign fighters to setup an Islamic state on Iraq/Syria/Arabic soil – is that not the worst invasion/occupation ever?

  15. he does have a point dont get involved does england n america really need this? actions of our govermont can affect us all…. media is so corrupt

  16. I’m a twelve year old boy and I play hockey it’s a tuff sport and we get hurt a lot but we don’t cry now that I watched this video I cried it’s so sad all this needs to stop it’s the Iraqi says everybody but if the USA stopped we could make a difference it’s both countries faults not just one what if the us says sorry and the Iraqis do to so another American body does
    Not die or will Obama have another air strike and let the American die

  17. This message to our friend in USA and the family of the Murdered Journalist by Terrorist gang ISIS and Cowardly Arab terrorist . God have mercy on his soul and bring this killer terrorist to justice.

    Ladies and Gentle man Kurdistan for 85 Years had been dealing with this Arab terrorist and foreign fighters in our country because Britain after WW1 divided Kurdistan in to 4 peace. Iraq under Saddam committed genocide against Kurdish civilian. Than the Shiit prime mister Maliki the coward abandoned our people on the face of ISIS now we kicked this arab coward out of office !! another Shiit named Abadi is elected by Kurdish president of Iraq but this new minster is also Arab!! so nothing changed! America should stop supporting arabs or Iraq let them be and help Kurdistan and Israel to deal with this terrorist and arabs!! Arabs are cowards only Israel know them so why America helping Iraq!! Obamma should help Kurdistan by providing heavy military hardware with fighter jet so we will destroy ISIS as you all see Kurdish peshmarga stopped ISIS from the day one from spreading and we will make them to bow in front of US!! Britain should do more from stopping its citizen joining ISIS and should bring them to justice or deport them where they come from because Killing innocent journalist or any human is a war crime and make our heart to bleed. USA you have the support of our Country Kurdistan and Israel . Turkey also killing our civilian and supporting ISIS so Arabs should be dealt by ISRAEL!!! also Israel should Punish Iran

    • I doint know a lot about isidore but what I see on the web is not right why would you want to kill someone who has done nothing to you knowing that god will not like what you done and that he will punish you for what you have done to that person and to him and you cant hide behind a mask he knows who you are hell has no fury like the raft off god you will pay the ultimate price god is watching he will seek revenge for the victims. May god have mercy cause I doint

  18. I pray daily that God will avenge THIS terrible travesty of justice, these people are cowards hiding behind women and children and masks. I know that God says “Vengence is Mine!”. HE will strike down where they sleep, lay and hide, these cowards. I pray that HE will send a drone to fire a missile up their a*** (Tailpipes). That their death will be painful, slow and deliberate.
    It is disgusting that this occurred, God WILL have the last word on these people, and May God Help their Souls!!! Cause the US Military IS on the way, to put a Boot UP their A*S!!

  19. I wish these cruel bastards should go through hell for a 1000 years. I pray god to curse these sickening people.

  20. Rest assured this pond scum will be tracked down and he will squeal like a pig when caught. These scum will die when when the dogs of war are unleashed. They are strong against poorly trained and apathetic fighters but have been proved to be cowards when forces hit back and hit back hard the Kurds are spitting on them and taking back ground. The US and UK will take terrible revenge on this filth. I call on the governments of the UK and US get off your arses and obliterate this pestilance, this sewage, this excrement.

  21. Wow , oh my god , this is such a bad picture to look at , I am Arab , I wish and pray every day to kill all these sineeee low life , and I want the us to watch all the ones who have a long bear in here , these wahibeeee MF are the enemy of Islam , god bless the us and Obama , and help them to kill all wahibeeees sineee in the world

    • the problems is that all Arabs are the same so its not just isis thats why only Israel know how to treat u so get lost u stupid arab

      • No! You are wrong about all Arabs being the same. We have many in our town and we treat each other with respect. The are honest hard working people. They are not all killers. Just the extremist terrorists and Isis. You sound racist by saying they are all the same just as I would if I said all blacks or Chinese etc… Are the same. Each individual has a mind of their own.

        • You are completely right, Patricia. This kurd guy is racict and jingo. He is full of hatred against Arabs and Turks. Read his previous comments. He doesen’t have much more difference than ISIS in this point

          • No you are wrong !!! plus you have no idea of what is going on in the world past ! and Present!!! for your information im not Kurdish !! hahaha but I have seen that the only force that repel this terrorist group is that KURDISH peshmarga force who protected innocent civilian! obviously not All arabs are bad but the majority dictators and tyrant and terrorist groups are from those Arabian countries so for instance in our country which is muslim in Turkey majority reject ISIS but in Arabistan they support them!!!!! so I think you need to read more to get better knowledge b4 you shoot to the DARK!!! hahahah very funny !!!!???

  22. This has fired the American people up , as someone has stated prior , that the masked son-of-b***h that completed this act of cowardness should rot in hell , if I had it my way , I would blow all the the pricks up, because they have no passion for life or family , you just don’t kill people because what country they were born in and just happen to be available …

    So with that said , If Obama was planning on 50 Air Strikes, I hope it just became a 1000 … I am one pissed off American !!!!!

  23. Mr. Obama, tell me please, what You doing in Iraq, this is a first my question!!!
    Americans killed in two Gulf NUCLEAR-Wars and Sactions 4 Millions Iraqis and 1 Million Childrens!
    Look please a Childrens in Hospital in Kabul and Falluja, look please a Childrens in Vietnam, Cam
    bodia, Laos, Afghanistan! This is american Killingsjob! Mr, Obama, You are RESPONS for beheads american young Reporter! Stop the Wars in Afghanistan, Gaza, Siria, Ukraina!!!

    OBAMA,S BIBLE!!!
    7 and when the letter reached them, they killed all seventy, and sent back their heads in baskets to Jehu at Jezrahel.

    28 Thus Jehu abolished the worship of Baal in Israel.

    29 Yet he would not forgo the sins of Jeroboam son of Nabat, that taught Israel to sin; at Bethel and at Dan the golden calves had their worship still.

    30 For thy zeal in doing my will, the Lord told him, for carrying out my just decrees against the line of Achab, I will let thy heirs keep the throne of Israel up to the fourth generation;

    Atheist 100%!!!

  24. Obama and Cameron vowed to protect all their citizens, in and abroad.
    Is some president not fulfilling his vow?This is a breach of law..if they are really busy taking morning coffee in the afternoon.But if they wanna fulfill that vow, now is the appropriate time and setting.
    Now they have a cause for a war anybody can approve, destroy these devils once and for all and it can send a terrifying warning to the wanna-bes!!Woke up Obama ,you can save the day.

  25. We are training to come for all you ISIL scum. I assure you, your deaths will take far longer and be more painful if I have anything to say about it. Semper Fi you gonna die!!

  26. Anyone can Kill a person with their hands tied behind their back, and then challenge him with swinging a knife around as if they had balls to fight anyone and anything. In fact those so called black towel head freaks are always walking around with a gun, a knife, grenade or anything explosive. That’s why anytime I get a chance I beat the living s**t out of them with my bare hands because they cant fight. The run like little girls when they don’t have a weapon to hide behind. I pray not to see anymore or them people around here anymore, I need to rest from given them a beating every-time I see one of them. Ho yeah, they can cry like girls, and they cant even speak. They call the “neck” next’s jez.

  27. Here’s why ISIS is the worst kind of enemy, and how to defeat them:
    1. Fear. They have created an image of being ruthless – thus creating fear in their enemies. Because they will cut the head off of every American or enemy they capture, that will make governments think twice about putting troops on the ground.
    2. Their Brand. The killer wears a mask not to hide his face but to show they are a group of united peoples – not an individual killing another individual.
    3. Money. They are well financed and occupy large swaths of land. They removed the gold and currency from every bank in every city they have taken over. Plus, between oil sales, hostage payouts, and extortions, the ISIS profits over 3 million dollars a day.
    4. Social media savvy. They have the world’s attention. Unlike previous videos from BinLaden and other terrorists, their videos are shot clearly with titles and a specific message in Arabic and English.
    5. Because they threaten the President, they elevate themselves to being a perceived as a legitimate to all, anywhere, all the time threat versus Al-Qaeda sneaking around at night, hiding in caves and being on the run.

    Yes like everyone here, I hope they are eliminate from this earth. That said, it is going to take more than dropping bombs. It will require a more sophisticated approach:
    1. Slow down or stop their recruiting. We need to create a social media counter offensive attack to deter other muslims and others from around the world from joining them.
    2. Regional governments and companies are going to have to step up and not make a big profit from getting cheap oil by buying ISIS oil at bargain prices.
    3. Stop paying hostage dollars. That is short term thinking. Unfortunately more people will die, but even more will if ISIS continues to get a handsome income from hostage payments from European governments.
    4. The arab and legitimate muslim worlds are going to need to publicly condemn ISIS and brand them not as saviors or religious zealots, but as criminals who will face charges for murder – another words, campaign through the media to make ISIS unpopular, versus it being a perceived as taking from the rich and getting rid of western ways and giving to the poor and making the people in their state more religiously pure.
    5. Cut off the flow of money, weapons and food to ISIS and make their life miserable to create a culture in the ISIS state — one of despair and sacrifice that is not worth their efforts or making progress.
    6. Act quickly. Use every piece of technology at our disposal to hunt down and kill the leaders of ISIS in a single major effort or as close as possible. The longer it takes, the more time other junior ISIS terrorists can learn and rise to take their fallen leader’s places. Once the main power leaders are gone, ISIS would become fractionalized and less organized — making for infighting for control and power, which could implode their cause.

  28. OMG you US people….you have made so many wars and filled with blood and tears so many Nations and now you are wipping like faggots….!!!Listen….i am against war and any kind of violence and this picture is digusting to my eyes but when you make war you have to be ready for casualties….!!!
    Americans were , are and will be the murderers of all Nations…!!!
    God bless all war victims!!!

    • I would not want to kill anyone but how would those isidore scum like it if they just kidnapped them and ther family and right in front of them cut there kids heads off sick and then laughed about it and if that doint work kill everyone that has anything to do with isidore kill them all none would be missed

  29. I’m SO SAD for the victims of these atrocities, their families, friends…can’t we all be more reasonable…?

    more tolerant?

    IF NOT, WHY NOT?

    WHY DESTROY OUR WAY OF LIFE?

    why make it brutal and all in the name of ??

    We’ll end up destroying ourselves….and for WHAT??

  30. no isis can escape my sight,wait for me evil, I come to punish you and abu bakr al-bagdhadi dog pig

  33. This is getting way out of perspective.. The western army are dealing with rats from the desert who cut heads off… And justify this sick act as God given…

  34. These people, I don’t really want to even refer to them as human or as people. They are barbarians at the gate. They hide behind religion and call themselves men of God but they are truly children of the devil. The US should hunt down these idiots, every last one of them who were dumb enough to show their face in these videos. They deserve nothing but the same as they gave, a public beheading. God bless America and her army’s for it is only they that keep us safe.

  35. Their too stupid to do any thing else so why not take them out with proper American Military FORCE like back in the day

  37. if you are so proud of the actions you take, why do you hide your faces? to do this merely exemplifies the cowards you truly are. your hatred sickens me. how can anyone who claims faith in any religion commit such shameless acts? when you reach the other side i’m sure there will be no vestal virgins. however, there will be a special place in HELL with the name ISIS waiting for you. and when the waiter with the horns and the long pointed tail comes over to ask what you’d like to drink? just say HOT DAMN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
