    You people do realize that ISIS/L are the ideological equivalent of HAMAS, right?

    Looks like the Brits have jumped onto finding out who this Terrorist is with the British accent.....some say from London.


    UK 'urgently investigates' suspected British executioner in Foley video.....

    British Foreign Minister Philip Hammond says that the government is "urgently investigating" the identity of the apparently British executioner of US reporter James Foley, whose death was shown in a video released by members of the self-declared Islamic State in Syria. The IS member's apparent ties to Britain highlight increasing concern in the West about the radicalization of European and American nationals by jihadi groups and the threat they pose if they return home.

    The video published overnight on YouTube shows the hooded, black-clad IS member speaking extensively in both English and Arabic before killing an orange-jumpsuited man described as "James Wright Foley, an American citizen." In what the Daily Telegraph describes as a London accent, the executioner says that the US has "been at the forefront of the aggression towards the Islamic State," before killing Foley.....snip~

    U.S. Officials: Video Shows Beheading Of American Journalist

    Is this really shocking? We knew these guys were nuts to begin with. Do we care about drone strikes to kill them? Just wondering. I'm on the fence.

    We need to contain them. That is given. If the UK wants to take the lead on dealing with these nuts...I'm sure we have a few SEALs and Delta ops with some experience willing to help out.

    James Foley's mother posts statement after journalist killed by ISIS: 'We thank Jim for all the joy he gave us'.....

    Diane Foley, the mother of journalist James Foley, wrote this message Tuesday evening, following the earlier posting of a video online by the organization Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. The video showed Foley, who had been abducted in 2012 while covering the conflict in Syria, being murdered by ISIS militants.

    We have never been prouder of our son Jim. He gave his life trying to expose the world to the suffering of the Syrian people. We implore the kidnappers to spare the lives of the remaining hostages. Like Jim, they are innocents. They have no control over American government policy in Iraq, Syria, or anywhere in the world.....snip~

    I would never post it here. Telling people where it is, yes... but posting it here? No.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    They're scum, don't allow them to manipulate you like that.
    Why? Because if I am to understand the full extent of the threat these people pose to our way of life, I need a true and real education regarding their tactics and just how dangerous they actually are. Just to hear a story told, doesn't have the same impact as seeing the act.

    For instance, those of us that saw the Twin Towers when they fell, felt that tragedy in our hearts - even those that just saw it on TV. Those of us that saw it first hand, and had to work in the rubble looking for bodies, have an even more unique perspective on those that perpetrated that act of terrorism.

    I don't get any pleasure from watching such videos. Yet I feel that I owe it to the man that was killed to understand as well as I can what he endured in our name at the hands of these monsters.

    Two Sunni Terrorist organizations bent on removing any other religious influence in the area and also bent on establishing Theocratic control of the region. Hamas is little different in their aims towards jews than ISIS' towards christians, jews, yezzidis and shi'a.

    Heya NP. What was so impressive about BO peep's speech?


    James Foley's parents: 'He was a martyr, a martyr for freedom'.....

    In a press conference on Martha's Vineyard, Obama said he was “heartbroken” by the beheading of Foley at the hands of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS). “Jim was taken from us in an act of violence that shocks the conscience of the entire world,” the president said. Obama said he had spoken to Foley’s parents and told them “we are all heartbroken at their loss and join them in honoring Jim and all that he did.”

    The Foleys said they never lost hope that their son would come home. His last words, they said, were: “I wish I had more time to see my family.”.....snip~
