BREAKING: ISIS Beheads British Aid Worker David Haines

The Islamic State has now beheaded another western hostage. The Mirror reports:

A new video has been released by militants purporting to show the 44-year-old aid worker being executed.

The second hostage to be executed was freelance journalist Steven Sotloff.

A video of the 31-year-old’s beheading emerged just weeks after his fellow captive James Foley was also killed.

In the footage, the executioner – again believed to be man nicknamed Jihadi John – said: “I am back, Obama, and I am back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State, because of your insistence on continuing your bombings and … on Mosul Dam, despite our serious warnings.”

The executioner is believed to be the same London-accented British jihadist who butchered the two Americans, James Foley and Steve Sotloff.

These serial killer jihadists are cowards. They take journalists and aid workers hostage. They refuse to show their faces on camera while they taunt the free world. The fact that all three hostages have recited anti-American or anti-British statements before their murders indicates that the helpless hostages have been tortured and brainwashed for years in captivity.

British PM David Cameron reacts:

 

 

President Obama’s strategy is not going to stop ISIS. Two of our so-called allies in Obama’s strategy have now allied with ISIS. The Iraqi army is clearly not ready. The Arab states are only promising money and training for Syrian “rebel” troops, so far. Yemen and Somalia, the two countries Obama himself held up as models of successful counterterrorism, are terrorist playgrounds.

Raymond Ibrahim wrote recently about why these terrorists specifically choose to behead their victims. Beheading “infidels” and those cast as “enemies of Islam” has a specific origin in Islamic history.
