Sucks to be him.
From My Way News.
An Islamic State group video released Sunday purports to show extremists beheading a dozen Syrian soldiers and ends with a militant claiming to have killed U.S. aid worker Peter Kassig, the latest slaughter proudly broadcast by the group on the Internet.
The video ends with the militant standing over a severed head he says belongs to Kassig. U.S. officials said they were working to determine the video’s authenticity. Kassig’s family said it was awaiting the outcome of the investigation.
“We prefer our son is written about and remembered for his important work and the love he shared with friends and family, not in the manner the hostage takers would use to manipulate Americans and further their cause,” the family said in a statement.
Manipulate? They’re pretty much doing whatever the fuck they want without much consequence. No one in the Obama regime is particularly ruffled by the widespread carnage by ISIS or any other muzzie terrorist faction. Obama is resorting to his usual ass-kissing with Iran, hoping that they will help fight ISIS in exchange for lifting sanctions. Yeah right, as soon as they stop being a major threat.
More, from The Telegraph:
……The 15-minute long grisly video shows the horrific beheading a group of Syrian military prisoners and then the decapitated head of Mr Kassig at the feet of a masked man.
The man, who appears to be the same militant known as Jihadi John who has appeared in other beheading videos, says: “This is Peter Edward Kassig, a US citizen.”
He also denounces David Cameron as a puppet of the United States president:
He says: “To Obama, the dog of Rome. Today we are slaughtering the soldiers of Bashar and tomorrow we will be slaughtering your Soldiers and with Allah’s permission we will break this final and last crusade and the Islamic State will soon, like your puppet David Cameron said, begin to slaughter your people on your streets.”
……Kassig’s death would be the fifth beheading of a Westerner apparently carried out by violent extremists of Isil.
……Ed and Paula Kassig, from Indianapolis, issued their own video message describing how their son had converted to Islam – taking the name Abdul Rahman Kassig – and that other captives had told them his faith brought him comfort.
Mrs Kassig said: “Our hearts ache for you to be granted your freedom so that we can hug you again and then set you free to continue the life you have chosen, the life of service to those in gravest [need].”
They also set up a Twitter account to send messages to his captors.
“I am an old woman, and Abdul Rahman is my only child. My husband and I are on our own, with no help from the government,” wrote Mrs Kassig. “We would like to talk to you. How can we reach you?”
Their campaign included releasing a letter sent by their son, describing his terrifying ordeal.
“I am obviously pretty scared to die but the hardest part is not knowing, wondering, hoping, and wondering if I should even hope at all,” he wrote. “If I do die, I figure that at least you and I can seek refuge and comfort in knowing that I went out as a result of trying to alleviate suffering and helping those in need.”
They also joined worshippers at a mosque in the to pray for his release.
Kassig’s parents are a couple of delusional morons. They can’t possibly believe that pleading with muzzie thugs on Twitter, or engaging in publicity stunts by appearing in a mosque, is going to make any difference with a subculture that worships a violent theocracy.
No Westerner should be in the Middle East unless you’re part of an armed force on a mission to kill the mutherfuckers. All Western civilians are targets, unless they’re fighting with Al Qaeda. In that case, they can be our targets.
They don’t give a shit if you’re a tourist, an aid worker, or a journalist; you’ll be slaughtered for allah.
