And it is this kind of thinking that turns the world against Israel just as foretold in the Bible.


Yep, the Bible also says something about certain Jews coming from the Synagogue of Satan also I'm sorry to say... But people seem to forget that even the Bible condemns a group of the End Times Jews.

So match their innocent civilian killing with our own innocent civilian killing.

As Bill Clinton recently said, none of this would be happening if we never invaded Iraq. This is all going to plan.

I'll repeat. These ISIS figures we see are being purposely glorified on media to brainwash the public.

What do you think would happen if the media would have followed the grassroots push yo highlight the African Koney situation? The mainstream media refused to highlight it.

There is an agenda being pushed.

We need to pack up our people and leave the Middle East. Period. Problem solved.

Please put another option on the table then.

And seriously? None of this would have happened if we weren't ever in Iraq...from Bill Clinton? So I guess you're blaming Bush? And I guess you think Clinton had nothing to do with building Al Q? And I guess you think somehow this is about the US at all? Ummmm...IS is killing THOUSANDS of non US people weekly in the name of their god....i would say that is FAR more deranged and vicious than anything the US has done.

So yes, collateral damage sucks but deal with it.

This is another entirely bogus hoax. Propaganda, plain and simple. I see once again the vast majority of members are buying it hook, line and sinker. You people are comically gullible. You're being manipulated.

Seriously? Are you just trolling or something? You think none of this is happening over there? It's all some scripted movie just for some power grab?

Must be a well funded operation to pay off all those people and their families to play like their actually dead.....

It is interesting to see so many individuals on here assuming that these videos are faked in some way or another. The only detail that deserves or warrants skepticism is when the videos / beheadings were in fact performed.

If any of you have had the very unfortunate experience of viewing the 60min ISIL propaganda video (in HD might I add), you would surely know that this group of radicals has zero regard for human life. This isn't a religious driven desire for their sovereignty, its a lust for blood, mayhem and personal gain using religion as their crutch and purpose.

None of us can say without a doubt that there is or isn't an underlying agenda, fact. The videos though, such as the one mentioned above, does speak for itself and no innocent human being deserves to be subject to such barbarism.

I agree that something needs to be done, question is, who should do it? Unless you're the one holding the cards, and have as much credible intel as possible, you're just guessing.. and this type of threat is not won by guessing. Its a difficult decision, and way above my pay grade..

Why not fake it? I don't think ISIS made those videos anyway. But if they did, why didn't they kill Sotloff on camera then? By your logic they should have.

I wouldn't think miscreants are capable of that level of video production quality.

But like I said, could be CIA, MI6, Mossad, ect. All part of an act to outrage people so they will support more war.


Decent HD video cameras aren't that expensive — anywhere from a couple grand and up. That's one of the reasons for all these crappy found footage movies. The editing isn't anything spectacular either and certainly nothing that couldn't be done by a half-way serious amateur with a pirated copy of Adobe Premiere.

Maybe the guy who they chose to be the spokesperson is a little squeamish so they cut out and let somebody else do the deed or maybe they figured the video would violate less T&C on websites without the actual beheading and would therefore reach a larger audience. I would assume that if in fact ISIL/ISIS is behind the video, they'd consider a polished look as indicative of sophistication and legitimacy.

In any case, I'm still not understanding why it would be preferable to fake the deaths rather than actually murdering the men? That would only make sense for a group that is unwilling or unable to do real world violence and I don't see how any of the potential alternative producers meets that criteria.

You speak the truth. It's too bright for some.

Ill tell you what. NEVER before has beheading video been blocked from being released SOMEWHERE on the internet. The purpose of said videos is to instill fear in the people. Just so happens, that when the foley "beheading" happened, ALL posting and or viewing of these videos was trying to be suppressed, up to and including prosecution for simply viewing the video. Thus, making it easy for the US in the future to just say, "we got another beheading video", thus making the American people bang the war drums that the US wants them banging. Propaganda at it FINEST people. Please do not buy in, it is after all exactly what they want you to do.

Short of an attack in the US, this is the only type of thing that can be used to get the US public to back military involvement in the Mid East again. Guess the average American hasn't had enough of warring over there.


Look at the responses here. Even the (what I formerly considered) more intellectually agile members are falling in lock-step howling for Islamic blood over a couple of fake beheading videos. Our keepers need not fear us turning on them. We're so easily tricked. Yes, let's rally behind the M.I.C. and their war machine once again. Too funny. Dolts.

I have no doubt "there" are people getting killed, but neither of these American journalists has been beheaded because Islamists have a blood-lust like is being suggested. "They're" likely western intelligence assets playing a role to trick YOU into demanding war.

Deprive them of land, resources, allies and security. Pretty simple. To start with, why are their oil wells still pumping? Why are their cities not wiped off the face of the earth? No boots on the ground required to turn them back into ragtags on the run.

Nobody is left alive in the cities they took that are not sworn to their allegiance,

That is their weakness,

They cannot hide behind "innocent civilians" because they killed all the ones that didn't flee and none are left.

The reaction they are getting now is exactly what they seek. Whichever group is behind this and whatever motives they have, THIS is what they want. We know the reaction they aimed for, the motives need to be figured out now.

Sorry, but the fact that they didnt show the proverbial money shot, should let u everything u need to know. These monsters live for that crap...and ur telling me that they aren't going to show it. Oh, and sawing at a neck results in no blood. And in one shot, the guy has stubble and the next, a full grown 'stache- I'm talking about Foley. And don't tell me that hair grows after death. C'mon.

You know what I hear? A bunch of squawking from the stupid American people. As usual, we flock to it. This is what I hear:

JUST NUKE THEM
KILL THEM ALL
SEND OUT THE DRONES
SEND ALL THE MILITARY TO KILL THE BASTARDS
IMPEACH OBAMA
THIS IS OBAMA's FAULT
HILARY WILL BE MORE OF THE SAME
and a lot more LETS KILL

So, take from that what you will, but the outcome they sought out is the one they're getting now...they count on the lazy, stupid public to flock to this.

No proverbial money shot? Don't even BEGIN to tell me that it's real. Live Leak and other sites have much more gore in them..

Amazed at just how quickly everyone falls for it.

They want you to hate.
They want you to anger.
They want you to support further wars.
Let go of more of your money to support their war on 'terror'.
Increase restrictions on your rights to 'keep you safe'.

Just remember, Saddam, Qaddaffi and Al-Assad kept that place in check, the latter two moreso.....and Qaddaffi was even close to uniting Africa and providing fresh water to countries desperate for it. You armed the people that overthrew them because they were supported by Russia, or China, and were planning to rival the US Currency, and make Africa the economic centre of the modern world. You bombed that water project the moment it was possible, despite the fact it posed no threat to your forces, just a threat to your continued oppression of Africa.

Enjoy perpetuating the hate and anger, and being a tool for their evil and unthinkable schemes.

Don't be surprised if in 50 years you find out that ISIS is led my MOSSAD or CIA operative.

How many beheading videos have we seen? 2, 3 recently?

How many innocent lives are taken daily by drone strikes? Just because they use the visual impact of a beheading video, still DOES NOT equal the amount of lives taken by Western (and covert western) forces.

So because they recorded it in a fashion to show less blood, the dead guys head separated from his body is all fake?

What a freakin load of utter bull.

The ones crying fake are the ones disconnected from reality.

How do you know they didn't cut the scene after the victim spoke, drained all his blood with a simple blood donor apparatus from any hospital easily acquired then hacked his head off? Their reasoning could be less gore equals more exposure ensuring Obama cannot ignore them or hide it from the public.

They were winning till the US air strikes decimated their ground units in over 124 strikes to date with no end in sight.
Now they are losing, everywhere militarily. They failed to take the dams, they are losing towns not gaining them to the Kurds and Iraqi's ground forces. With no battlefield mobility or artillery they don't have an edge in battle any longer. Their suicide bombers are only effective when they are sieging a town or military installation, not when they are the ones being driven back.

They don't cry out for America to send soldiers so they can kill them in these videos, they give an ultimatum to Obama by name to stop the airstrikes, and Obama symbolizes America and the will of its people to them over there.

Their only goal by making these beheadings is to stop the air strikes. Get it? They could have easily just buried these journalists in a ditch alive with the rest of their victims or shot them or beheaded them in front of the schoolboy age children in a town square somewhere but they didn't.

When this tactic doesn't work, expect them to try something even more horrendous to influence stopping the airstrikes. You can be guaranteed they will video and upload it like they always do and then the apologists will all cry fake as usual.

Its time to crush Isis and its supporters! We need to rein so much hell that even to speak the name is a death sentence. Freaking religion of peace, yea right





All intelligent minded people need to watch the Dark knight and the joker scene with two face in the hospital. It is a commentary on society today and you are falling into it's trap.



TPTB needed a large enemy and these foolish radical idiots are playing the part.TPTB will wait a little while longer for the people to really beg for help before unleashing the plan that has been in place all along. This whole entire thing is a setup as a means to an end.


You would think after Iraq 2.0 and Afghanistan people would be wiser...........It is time to see the truth. And do not get me wrong I think most Muslims are crazy religious nut jobs. What a perfect bad guy these idiots make. If we just left them alone they would kill themselves off in 10 years.

No. I'm simply saying. It's none of our business. We need to stop creating resentment and then getting pissed when someone retaliates. WE funded ISIS. If not for our 500,000,000 dollars maybe they don't grow so fast.

We don't have to be the world police because it's putting our country into debt.

And yes, bush and his family cronies put us in this mess. On purpose. Who cares if Bill Clinton said it, it's true. I'm no fan of Clinton either.

We created this chaos and it's time to stop. But we won't stop because this Is what "they" want. That's my point. So it upsets me when someone just cavalierly says kill me all.

Make sense?

I have seen beheading videos from Iraq from around 10 years ago, unedited footage, head sat of the back of the victim when they were done, hands binded with blood everywhere... Then we get to today's beheading's.. Gore edited out of the video's, what seems like a backdrop worthy of Hollywood, pretty calm people being beheaded with no trace of a cut to be seen. If this is ISIS's game, they are nothing compared to who was killing people a decade ago. The people seem more like actors than anything else. You should go check some of those beheadings from all those years ago, you will see what I mean.

Yes!!!! That's exactly it. I'll make it simple for you. CIA, Mossad, mi6 has double agents that are leading a group of sadistic desert retards throughout the desert with video cameras and a (Blackwater type) mercenary army in face masks protecting them as they make videos and storm small villages.

Then the media are showing them as they murder villagers and make scary videos. All why the people at home swallow it hook line and sinker. Now all of your freedoms are going to continue bring stripped (ala Patriot act) in the name of security.

It is well funded. By us congress and pentagon. And The sadistic extremist are being paid to not have face masks on and kill Sunnis whole being protected by mercenaries.
