ISIS Threatens UK After Beheading


david-hainesISIS has published another video allegedly showing the beheading of British hostage David Haines, 44, just hours after his family pleaded for his life. Stills from the video as well as links to it online began appearing on Twitter accounts associated with ISIS early this evening.

“Jihadi John,” the masked killer who is believed to have also killed American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff in August, appears to be the murderer on video. Again, he called for an end to attacks against ISIS in Syria and Iraq by the United States and its allies, namely the United Kingdom. And as in other videos, he showed the likely next victim,¬†identified as Alan Henning.

The jihadist specifically warned British Prime Minister David Cameron to stop supporting the effort against ISIS. Cameron is expected to seek Parliamentary approval to join the United States in air strikes against ISIS positions in Iraq. Haines was a humanitarian aid worker who had worked in the Balkans, Africa and the Middle East since 1999. He was taken hostage in March last year, but his identity was kept secret for 19 months to allow time for the family to work for his release.

Haines has two daughters, ages four and 17, and lived in Croatia after marrying his second wife, Dragana Haines. Read more at The New York Times.

  1. why does anyone think that a parent’s plea makes one bit of difference to hamas? if anything, it just increases their glee. do they care if the world thinks they have committed a terrible crime? why bother making statements and pleas? get rid of them; yelling at them–haven’t you noticed?–doesn’t help

  2. Let us stop calling them, and their cohort, Arabs – or anything other than Moslems.. And, let’s declare all Moslems, anywhere, under suspicion.
    Unlike Nisei (Japanese Americans of the second generation) who were integrating and were loyal hard-working US citizens, Moslems in the final analysis are NOT.
    (BTW: the wonderful idols of liberal leftists – FDR, Earl Warren (California governor, Chief US Justice) and similar phonies – strongly endorsed the concentration camps (relocation centers, I think they called them) for our fellow American Nisei. (Read “The Governing of Men” by Leighton).
    Think: the Koran denigrates ALL non-Moslems – should we remain sitting ducks for this ultimately hostile political force?
