The Muslim terrorist group ISIS has butchered another Brit and they’re threatening to butcher another American, a former US Army Ranger and Special Forces soldier who went back to the Middle East to help the people.
A horrifying new Internet video released on Friday shows a hooded ISIS terrorist viciously sawing off the head of British hostage Alan Henning – and threatening another American hostage – in what the fanatic says is retaliation for allied airstrikes on the militants.
The graphic 71-second video – titled “Another Message to America and its Allies” – opens with a British newscast announcing that Parliament had overwhelmingly approved airstrikes on ISIS.
But it then quickly cuts to a shot of Henning, clad in an orange jumpsuit and kneeling on desert sands, with the ISIS thug wielding a large knife standing behind him to his left.
“I am Alan Henning. Because of our Parliament’s decision to attack the Islamic State, I as a member of the British public, will now pay the price for that decision,” a stunned looking Henning says.
The terrorist – who speaks with a British accent and appears to be the fighter known as John the Beatle – then addresses the camera.
“The blood of David Haines was on your hands Cameron,” he says, referring to another butchered hostage and British Prime Minister David Cameron.
“Alan Henning will also be slaughtered. But his blood is on the hands of the British Parliament,” the hooded man says, pointing his knife straight at the camera.
The screen goes briefly dark, but then the terrorist reappears and begins sawing off Henning’s head.
The next shot shows the British aid worker’s handcuffed body lying in the sand – with his bloodied head placed on his lower back.
It looks like another American will be next. We disagree with the NY Post’s characterization of the butcher. They refer to him as an “ISIS monster” while we prefer “Muslim butcher.”
The ISIS monster then reappears with terrified American hostage Peter Kassig, and says: “Obama, you have started your aerial bombardment of [Syria] which keeps on striking our people. It’s only right we continue to strike the necks of your people.”
Kassig, 26, is a former elite US Army Ranger who deployed to Iraq in 2007, according to a Time magazine profile published in 2013.
After leaving the military, the Indianapolis native volunteered to help Syrian refugees in a Lebanese hospital and then started an aid group he called Special Emergency Response and Assistance.
Asked about his decision to remain in a dangerous combat zone, Kassig told Time he wanted to help.
“I started by traveling as much as possible throughout the country and focusing my efforts on volunteering on a small scale in a Palestinian refugee camp in South Beirut,” he said.
“I wanted to try and understand the full scope of the level of need and what role I could potentially have in meeting that need.”
We will point out that the only real “need” in the Middle East right now is to understand that the Muslim world is – and has been for 1,400 years – at war with the West and it’s long past time we responded accordingly.
We would offer up this story, and these fine and caring men as the difference between Western values and Muslim values.
- Alan Henning: a British citizen who leaves the comfort of his home to go to Syria to help bring aid and comfort to Syrians besieged by the war and butchery being carried on by Muslims against “unbelievers” and other Muslims in Syria and Iraq.
- Peter Kassig: an American, former US military, who volunteered to help Syrian refugees in a Lebanese hospital and then started an aid group he called Special Emergency Response and Assistance.
These two men represent the West. They are willing to leave their comfort behind to help those less fortunate. “John the Beatle,” on the other hand, is apparently a British convert who became a Muslim. Thus far he’s been the star of three videos beheading Westerners who’ve come to Syria and Iraq to help Muslims. John is a butcher.
We’ve not spoken of “Islam” or “Islamic terrorism” in this post, and will be shying away from it in the future. The problem isn’t some disenfranchised sect of Islam, it’s the Muslim religion from top to bottom. While people like John are butchering people, not just “innocents,” but people who’ve left their homes to help the suffering, we hear not a peep from from the so-called “moderate Muslims” around the world.
No Imam has issued a fatwah against ISIS or their like for their butchery. It’s not an oversight. Mohammed, the pedophile prophet, commanded his followers to butcher and enslave their “unbelieving” neighbors and they’ve been at it without rest for 1,400 years.
If we don’t wake up and treat this war – declared on us by Muslims – as the war it is, we’ll find that the war has come to our streets right here in the US. Oh, wait…
