Islamists have published a video of the execution of an American journalist

The radicals of the Islamic State movement published a video about the decapitation of an American journalist James Foley, who went missing in Syria about two years ago, reports NEWSru with reference to the Western press.

Islamists have published a video of the execution of an American journalist

Laid out on social networks video terrorists entitled "Message to America." The representative of the US Security Council Caitlin Hayden said that the authenticity of the record is now checking intelligence.

“If this record is genuine, then we are outraged by the brutal murder of an innocent American journalist and express our deepest condolences to his family and friends”, - quotes Hayden's words "BBC News".

The President of the United States has been informed about the shocking video.

“The President received information from Ben Rhodes, Deputy National Security Assistant. He will continue to receive regular updates on this issue. ”- White House spokesman Eric Schultz said.

Journalist Foley disappeared on November 22 2012. Prior to that, he had covered events in the Middle East for five years, working for publications such as NBC News, GlobalPost and PBS NewsHour. Once in Libya, he was captured by the rebels, and stayed there for about a month.

“PBS NewsHour” on its website posted a text describing the execution of a journalist. At first, Fowley, under duress, read out an appeal to the United States, condemning pinpoint airstrikes on the positions of the IS militants in Iraq. These actions of the American military were called “the last nail hammered into the coffin lid” of the journalist. The video ends with a man with a closed face beheading Fowley.

The representative of the "Islamic State" warned that if the United States did not stop the air raids, another American journalist would be executed - Stephen Joel Soltoff. “His life depends on your next step, President Barack Obama”, - said the masked man in the video, holding the prisoner, who, according to him, is Soltoff. As noted by the Reuters edition, she said “mask” in good English with a British accent.

Stephen Soltoff disappeared in July 2013 in northern Syria. He wrote for Time magazine and Foreign Policy.

Recall the day before the Islamists promised to "drown America in blood" if the air strikes did not stop.

        An attempt to spread panic in the US population.

        It is time for the US population to think carefully about who has power:

        Thorbjorn Jagland, chairman of the Nobel Peace Committee, said today that President Obama "really should consider" the immediate return of his Nobel Peace Prize medal.

        Jagland, surrounded by four other Committee members, said that they had never asked for a peace prize to be returned before, "even from a damned war criminal like Kissinger," but "Guantanamo is still open."

            Recently, Poroshenko, Obama, Camiron, etc., remind me of brainless, inhuman machines working under programmed settings.

          Here are the full texes. Freelance photographer Fowley accuses the American authorities of dying of his death.

          “I urge my friends, family and loved ones to rebel against my real killers, the US government. All that will happen to me is the result of their narcissistic and criminal actions. My message to parents: keep your dignity and do not accept any compensation for my death from those people who hammered the last nail into my coffin, recently launched a military campaign in Iraq, ”he said.

          At the end of the statement, Foley regrets being an American.

      I also thought it was stupid. There is no video of the execution on the Internet, there is only the speech "before death". Where is the execution? And why wait 2 years? Perhaps it was the Americans who edited themselves and composed the necessary speech to the characters to justify their bombing. And the relatives immediately rushed to confirm the death of the guy so that no one had any doubts. In my opinion, this is another distribution of the Americans on the principle of found chemical weapons.

        There are shots of execution there. Only blurred. One grunt from the throat. Sorry for him of course. But the Americans themselves supported this war. Now let them slurp a full spoon! I’ve already spoken about this somehow. I asked how ISIS will respond to the bombing attacks on their positions? Now you can see how ..... After all, Al-Qaeda, in comparison with the cruelty of ISIS, is just a flower. But the majority of Americans supported this course. I do not remember which of the ancient thinkers said. Be afraid to be strong, for there will always be someone who wants to measure their strength with you! I think that this is not the last action. We will see how this drama develops.

      We are sorry, we are Russians. And the US government is not. And this one was executed and the next one is executed according to the old American scheme. They need to once again scare and anger their American stupid bullshit (people), so as not to ask questions - why are we bombing Iraq? And then they are planning a new ground operation. So we will still see enough of "Islamist horrors" from Uncle Sam. "Good English with a British accent."

    I'm sorry for the guy. Life is life. Interestingly, the State Department expressed condolences over the death of Russian journalists in the so-called zone. ATO? Or concern about the fate of Andrei Stenin? Colleagues from America spoke about Andrei. Life is life. But I do not believe in the concern of the US authorities about the fate of journalists. For them, they are all pawns in the game, a bargaining chip.

    The main thing is to sow panic in the minds of Americans. Their population, unlike ours, is not homogeneous, for the most part, strongly torn apart by contradictions and the basis is made up of emigrants of different periods, different nationalities and ways of life. There is a formed stratum of pseudo-Americans who consider themselves indigenous and therefore more respected and correct. But the point is that only the Indian tribes and their descendants who existed here before the arrival of the "tourists", the rogue marauders, can consider themselves more respected and correct in this land. One has only to remind the "tourists" who proclaimed themselves Americans, who-is-who, and to raise the self-esteem of the indigenous population, as one zip will remain of the modern American society. The difficulty lies in the fact that less than 1% of the indigenous population remains and this figure is deliberately kept artificially. WHAT IS ATTRIBUTED TO THE USSR AND PERSONALLY TO STALIN: THE GREAT Oppression and Resettlement of Whole Peoples, Repression, Rule and Destruction in the State, With the Winning Democracy, the United States Succesfully Succeeds. IT'S TIME TO END THIS RUNNING AND RESTORE JUSTICE. HOW IT HAPPENED IN BOLIVIA, VENEZUELA, NICARAGUA AND EVEN IN SOUTH AFRICA, where the indigenous people of the countries came to power after many years of atrocities by the state business mafia.
