But I wasn't a fan of ISIS before the video and all of a sudden, I hate them because of the video.

ISIS is not nice.

They weren't nice yesterday.
They weren't nice last week.
They weren't nice last month.

The video does nothing to change the opinion of ISIS.

That Journalist kneeling there with the ISIS member (who was bought up in the UK BTW, Great choice by the Government to allow these to grow up here). Anyways that Journalist must be #ting himself a bit to know that he could be next...

It hinges on what the US Forces do next does it?? Maybe 'Hinges' wasn't the right word but you know what I mean.

The problem we have today is that this Religion and it's Extremists are now all across the World! They may be peaceful right now but is it only a matter of time before they join the Extremists?

any opinions on the moustache ? .. stubble before .. moustache afterwards

I would say that the amount of blood the poor man lost probably caused his skin to retract and for the facial hair to become more prominent.

In a normal death what actually happens is the skin loses moisture and pulls back, exposing more hair and making nails seem longer. As this poor chap lost so much blood it probably made the process happen a lot quicker.

The US will make a token gesture and have very cross words, perhaps an angry speech. They will use some drones.

. . . . . . . . . . then they will focus on important things, like tv.

They're bad guys who behead people routinely, but this video is fake and was made just to make them look like bad guys beheading someone to show their already widely known bad guyness,

I was talking to a friend about this and he said that IS is only going to get bigger and become a threat to everyone.

How are they growing this fast?

They take young kids, and start brainwashing them early. Letting them believe this is the only way , this is what they have to do in life, and either sacrifice themselves or murder all in the name of their god.

I'm also thinking now that the video was indeed edited to make it look like the person who killed the poor man was doing it with skill. It most likely was messed up, and they had to edit the video.

What dirtbags.

It's so bad, Obama is doing a facepalm.

(Either that or he's going to be forced to make a decision about something, sometime, maybe.)

I'd say it was messed up as I have seen it reported that it took some 7 minutes for them to decapitate the poor chap. Probably the reason it was edited.

Terrorism is the last refuge of the defeated.

Even the drone strikes are the desperate actions of a military in defeat. This kind of thing doesn't work anymore. It only bolsters resistance. The only answer to the world's problems is reasonable discussion and compromise.

You can clobber a nation militarily but, at least in the cases of Japan and Germany, they get up off the mat and clobber you economically.

Americans would be much better over all if they crapcanned the globalist agenda and went back to doing deals with people. America has always done business better than anything else they do. Most other places are like that too. Let's do honest deals with people. Let's stop trying to run the table and drive everyone else into the poorhouse.

Live and let live. It's time has come.

It's interesting that the actual beheading is edited out

The guy who beheaded Mr Foley was apparently British. Does this change your view of this particular video?

Nope. I do realize that there may be one or two terrorist types that embrace horror residing in the UK.

RIP James W Foley

I wonder if he had a High Definition capability camera when captured eh?

They actually went High Def not the usual 480p , video production was reminiscent of political advertising ads we see every 4 years. Something stinks about all this.

I don't know what to think any more. I'm posting just a reply, this isn't aimed at anyone in particular. But I really don't understand what's wrong with the world any more to be honest I've had enough of living on this planet. I'm a Brit lived here all my life, only until recently I've given up with a lot of things, I've been tryin to change things and I speak to people about world events and try to open people's eyes

But since this cliff Richard thing (I know a different thread so will keep it short) I've grown disgusted at the British government and those who run it. I'm sick of seeing all these celebs moaning about their lives or showing off how good it is.

And just when I thought humanity couldn't get any worse all this Israel/Gaza conflict and ISIS movement as made me finally give up on everything. I watched they beheading, my blood boiled when I heard the English accent. My blood evaporated when I thought about what was going through the executioners mind. What was he thinking? "This beheading will please Allah" "I'm doing the right thing by killing this man, I will change the world after this" I really don't know what is going on in his head

I struggle to grasp how this man hasn't thought about the mans life and family that he was about to behead. There's no second thought of 'what is this going to achieve by killing this man'. If we took religions, people's titles and powers away from everyone we would all be human beings no different to each other. I have now fully accepted us as a race are a destructive barbaric living being and if I wasn't human I'd stay well clear of this planet. And I now fully give up with humanity

Sorry just had to say this
I don't know what to do or think about any more I'm actually ashamed to be human

Edit: for those who think it's a hoax I gotta be honest, wake up and smell what's cooking. What would they benefit from faking this. The poor journalist family not only have they had their love one missing for over two years. They probably won't get the body back and now have to deal with never seeing this man again.

Four beheaded corpses found in Egypt's Sinai: security sources

(Reuters) - Four beheaded corpses were found by residents of a town in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula on Wednesday, security sources said, blaming Islamist militants waging an insurgency against Cairo.

The security sources in Sinai and Cairo, said residents of Sheikh Zuwaid found the bodies two days after the men were abducted by gunmen while traveling in a car in the town, a few kilometers from the Gaza Strip.

And people think this cant happen here.

A man deserves better than to be exploited in this way.

That being said, I cannot help but question the authenticity of this particular video. I just can't.
I have seen beheadings....the first on being Nicholas Berg, years ago. Some people claimed that video was "faked" was not. Now, whether it was staged, that is a different question....but "faked", it definitely was not. Every second of that beheading (and many others, and here is my point) was captured for all to see, in one shot. No edit, no cut away....just raw footage.

This isn't that....this is edited.
As he starts cutting...a few times sawing back and forth and then it cuts to a scene showing Foley stomach down, head on his back. (Sorry, trying not to get too descriptive yet trying to lay it out, yet again, for those unwilling or unable to view it themselves for whatever reason)

The standard MO of these "public" beheadings, displayed for all the world to see, is's unedited...and is meant to display the brutality and grotesque nature of the thing. This is more like a "whitewashed" version of a beheading.

......I generally don't go down this rabbit hole. I'm generally well rounded (imo) when it comes to CT vs reality and the in between. I just can't shake the feeling this is staged, and possible completely faked.
The "cuts" to the throat do it for me.....those initial cuts don't seem to be doing anything at all. The ONLY thing I can see that would legitimize it, is the way his body sort of "goes limp"....but even then, I have a hard time deciphering the reality of him "going limp" vs my preconceived notion that he SHOULD go limp. Not sure it happens.....if that makes sense at all.

The "why" and for what something I don't have right now. Like I said, I just don't know but I can't shake the feeling, even after viewing it over a half dozen times this morning.

I also note that it appears to either be dubbed......wouldn't the wind be coming through the audio?
If you view it, also note the only noise Foley starts to make....a sort of "gurgle" seems "added"......For those with the stomach for it, view a few beheadings with audio.....note the noise. There is a "consistency" to it and it generally starts immediately. This is well into the "sawing" action....

I'm going to shut up now...I feel so goddamned dirty. Just bringing up this angle makes me feel filthy.
If indeed this is what it is purported to be, I apologize in advance to his family....I hope they NEVER see this conversation.

Either way, this man is dead.....I would assume. May he rest in peace.

Must ETA: I cannot leave this post here without mentioning that either way, staged or not.....for whatever purpose....I want to see IS DEAD! ALL of them.....exterminate this SCUM from our planet.

There is PLENTY of actual video that IS has put out that prove their brutal, sick, psychopathic crimes. They put them on display for the entire world to see.
I just cannot end a post of this nature without mentioned that...........thank you for your time.

British Pakistan Immigrant, it clarifies my observations, they have Militant Islamic terrorist all over the world, probably more than anyone can imagine, and I have been saying it for years,

And shouted down and insulted for the truth.
