I think you're full of BS and until I see evidence of me or fellow citizens being threatened/killed or hurt on this island (the U.K.) then I will re-evaluate my standing because that is how much I trust those in charge over here.

The OP line states as you have mentioned but the assertion of the creator of this thread is that the whole thing is a hoax, go and read the opening post again.
The global outrage over Gaza, like everything else, gets old and people want to fuss over something different, it's called human nature, the media outlets know this well, look at the "ice bucket challenge" craze going on on FB last week it was Gaza now it's all about who's been nominated to pour water over their heads.
Point out where I'm full of BS and lets discuss that.
Again, what do you think happened in Woolwich last May? Is that not evidence enough for you? Or is what happened "fine" with you?
A study of the four-minute 40-second clip, carried out by an international forensic science company and published by The Australian, notes that no blood can be seen, though the knife is drawn across Foley's neck at least six times. The report also noted that the sounds, allegedly made by Foley, are not consistent with a real execution scenario. The report concluded that the video has to be a fake as there was no incision made on Foley's neck.
Why is there no Islamic word spoken? The Islamic State militants are known for their scripture quoting. The Sunni terrorist group lays strong emphasis on using verses from Quran to justify its killings. But in the video, though the masked militant speaks about Muslim interests, there is hardly any reference to Quran, which has raised quite some doubts.
During most of its executions, the Islamic State militants chant "Allahu Akbar" while killing a hostage but no such utterance is made in Foley's execution video.
Though the masked militant dressed in black is seen standing in a desert-like land, neither his dress nor his shoes look dusty. There is no sign of even wind activity, which is highly unlikely for a desert terrain.
The theory notes that it is highly abnormal for parents, who just witnessed the beheading of their son on video, to appear before the media in less than 24-hours, 'full of smiles and nice sunny memories'.

Maybe the alleged British rapper in the video was unwilling to do the actual beheading himself?... So another did and the Isis video experts took it from there.
But, what the hell do I know....
Could be anything as well...
The US foreign policy was set when they allowed 4 Americans to die in Benghazi.
The US foreign policy was set when they made it clear that American citizens could be "droned" to death in foreign countries.
So one journalist is more important that an American Ambassador? Is one US journalist rights more important than the rights of Americans in Yemen who were droned/executed?

So he is indeed dead (beheaded) but the movie was staged? Does that mean the US and the UK are raping women, killing children with a crucifix, crucifying people, burying people alive, cutting people in half and putting them on poles? Boy the pesky CIA and Foley were busy. I'm all for a conspiracy if it is founded on reality. Perhaps anyone who thinks ISIS are staged fun loving guys should go check it out first hand, I myself will pass on the trip.

Does it matter if he died on screen, or off screen. He is still dead. Dead is dead. Whether filmed or not filmed.
