Kassig’s Parents Will Grieve, Forgive


kassig-parentsThe parents of Abdul-Rahman Kassig made a poetic statement at a press conference in Indiana on Monday, after their son, a 26-year-old humanitarian worker, was killed by ISIS this weekend.

“Our hearts are battered but they will mend, the world is broken but it will be healed in the end, and good will prevail as the one god of many names will prevail,” his mother Paula said. His father Ed asked for prayers for his son and for “all people held against their will” in Iraq, Syria, and around the world.

He said the family would be spending some time grieving his son and also forgiving. They are planning a joint Muslim-Christian memorial service.

Meanwhile, France says an executioner in the most recent ISIS video is one of its own citizens. A French prosecutor identified the man as Maxine Hauchard, a 22-year-old convert who authorities believe to be in Syria. More than 1,600 French citizens are involved with ISIS, and nearly 400 are estimated to currently be in the combat zone. Read more at FOX 59.
