    ISIS appears to execute British aid worker David Haines

    British aid worker David Haines appears to have been executed by ISIS militants, according to a video posted Saturday to a website associated with the group, making him the third Western captive to be killed by the Islamist extremist group in recent weeks.

    The ISIS video post showing Haines' apparent beheading called his execution "a message to the allies of America."

    It is produced very similarly to the videos that showed the executions of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, the last of which included Haines and the threat that he'd be killed next.

    The new video pictures a masked ISIS militant placing his hand on another captive, whom he identified as Alan Henning, a British citizen.

    News of the gruesome killing came the same day that Haines' family released a brief message to his captors through the British Foreign Office.

    In it, the family says, "We have sent messages to you to which we have not received a reply. We are asking those holding David to make contact with us."

    A logistics and security manager for the Paris-based Agency for Technical Cooperation and Development, a nongovernmental humanitarian agency, the 44-year-old Haines was abducted in March 2013 near a refugee camp in Atmeh, Syria.

    At that time, Haines was working to arrange for the delivery of humanitarian aid to people staying at the camp. He had previously worked on aid operations for victims of conflict in the Balkans, African and other parts of the Middle East, according to an ACTED spokesman.

    Absolutely sickening. Whatever their 'cause' may be, their continued displays of barbarism further solidify ISIS's status as subhuman filth. The guy tries to help those who are suffering in the region and gets his head cut off as a result. Sometimes I feel that the ME is truly hopeless.

    Unable to comprehend the mindset of ISIS.

    This is all done to antagonize the West. Do they hope to be carpet bombed?

    I wish we had the intellingence to hit them from an unconventional method that they have never even thought of.

    3 months ago, they were moving their main body in the wide ass open.

    Here's the Telegraph report, and it quotes PM David Cameron as calling Haines's murder "an act of pure evil." British hostage David Haines 'beheaded by Islamic State terrorists' - Telegraph

    These killings are a retaliation for Western airstrikes. Pretty obvious, really.

    Yes, it's obviously 'workplace violence' and has nothing to do with Islam.

    Its retaliation pure and simple- since they dont have drones or smart bombs they use terrorism. If they had better weapons you can bet they'd use them too.

    I don't think you can attribute it to that ... this is an attempt by ISIS to say 'We are serious about this, and you should just go home, because you've proven you aren't serious. How many are you willing to allow die before you acquiesce, pack your bags, and go home?"
