    the west is already pissed and outraged, even without seeing the video.... are you going to now come out in opposition to even reporting on the story, or are you going to backtrack from this retarded comment?

    I absolutely support discussions relating to the threat that IS pose and the reporting and sharing of information associated with current events, everyone should be paying attention to what the current situation is, but i simply will not aid them by spreading their heinous propaganda and buoying their cause.
    well, I might see the point if indeed the propaganda could in any way benefit ISIS... but showing this video, especially in the western world, can't benefit them in the least.

    if you were pissed about hearing the story, you aren't going to come to love them by watching he video, that's for damned sure.

    I can understand not watching if one can't handle "gore" .... but the propaganda thing doesn't really make much sense at all.

    Re: Fox News posts the ISIS propaganda video on their website.

    I think it's wrong that Fox is using their webspace to host a propaganda video and recruitment tool produced by a terror group. It is beyond ****ed up. I realize that Fox argues that that they are doing it to promote the truth, facts, and information, but if that were the case, they could at least translate the video so viewers could actually understand the purpose of the video. Fox is actually promoting fear over knowledge and facts to their non Arabic speaking audience, but for people who understand Arabic, they can follow the link and view what Isis intends as a recruitment tool.

    It's irresponsible. I am not opposed to promoting knowledge in anyway. The method of doing so in this case, is highly flawed.

    The way Fox is handling the video and presentation, commonsense tells me they seek to promote fear and anger and drum up support for more war. The neocon wing of the GOP is still strong after GWB, and to them, this video is war propaganda, and that's what I see going on.

    I agree in that I don't think seeing the whole video would change any of my hatred of this group of maggots. Just as I don't need to see a young child brutally raped to know the perp is royal piece of scum.

    Another problem is that I guarantee you there are some people in this world who will get off on watching that video.

    I didn't watch it either. I watched some of the beginning, but I didn't watch the death... I don't need to see that. I have seen some things of those Faces of Death videos, and that is enough for me.

    IS attempt to create fear and hysteria amongst us all. Their aim is to justify the unjustifiable and to terrorise and demoralise us along with attempting to recruit the vulnerable. They see that as a benefit. Why would anyone want to assist them in that way by sharing their idiotic messages? I refuse to. I won't give them the satisfaction of getting in my head and using me as a pawn to spread their propoganda war. No gutless, crazy, extremist who thinks it's ok to target civilians is going to get in my head and stop me living my life the way i choose.

    It's nothing to do with the "can't handle gore" aspect Thrilla. I've been a paramedic for many years, there's not much i have not seen or been exposed to.

    Whether it be shooting victims, people jumping to their deaths from the twin towers after 9/11, civilians killed in ME confllicts or those killed at the hands of IS, I'm very consistent in my views relating to my distaste at those who share images of victims to push their agenda.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    No, not really I know why they did it. They want the west to put boots on the ground, so they can kill them.

    I didn't mean to come across as saying you couldn't handle gore.... just that i understood not wanting to watch the video if one can't handle gore.

    as for the rest, everyone is pissed just hearing about the story....are we now to shut down reporting on these stories because it is passing along their "propaganda"?
    that's the only way to subvert this "fear and hysteria" you speak of ... to simply not report on any of these stories whatsoever.

    I mean, i have no problem with someone who choose not to watch it for whatever reason.. but choosing not to watch it is a far cry from not wanting it shown to anyone at all.... I don't find such censorship to be cool whatsoever.

    I've seen the video... i was no more pissed off after watching it than i was when i read it in print...such images don't really have too much of an effect on me... beheadings, war deaths, sniper kills, etc etc... no big deal to me
    oddly enough, i can't watch kids crash on bikes or skateboards , though... not sure why, but i hate those "fail" videos.... I've no clue why i'm weird that way
