American freelance journalist James Foley was allegedly beheaded by an Islamic State terrorist, which was captured on video and released through social media by the Islamic State.

After beheading Foley, the executioner threatened the United States that unless it withdraws from Iraq, another American journalist, who also appears in the video, will face the same fate.

The video has not yet been verified by officials, and it was removed from the Internet.

The Islamic State organization released the grisly footage of a man in black with his face covered and speaking with a British accent, who then appeared to cut off the head of the hostage, Foley.

Foley was missing since November 2012. At the time he disappeared, Foley was covering the war in Syria. It is unknown at this time where the video was taken.

Before being executed, Foley read a statement that blamed America for his death.

“I call on my friends, family and loved ones to rise up against my real killers, the U.S. Government. For what will happen to me is only a result of the complacency and criminality.” Foley also told his brother who is in the U.S. military, that he and his colleagues were responsible for his death.

When Foley completed his statement, the terrorist looked directly at the camera and spoke to U.S. President Barack Obama.

“So any attempt by you, Obama, to deny the Muslims their rights of living in safety under the Islamic Caliphate will result in the bloodshed of your people.” And then he cut off the man’s head.

The video released by the terrorist group was titled “A Message to America.” It was posted on social media sites.

SECOND AMERICAN JOURNALIST THREATENED

After killing Foley, the murderer then grabbed another U.S. prisoner, believed to be journalist Steven Joel Sotloff. The murderer said the prisoner’s life “depends on Obama’s next decision.”

Foley had worked for various media outlets such as the PBS NewsHour, the Global Post, and NBC News.  He was 39 years old.

Sotloff’s work appeared in Time magazine, Foreign Policy, as well as elsewhere. He was kidnapped in early August of 2013 and was also believed to have been held in Syria.

According to Sotloff’s Facebook page he is from Florida and graduated in 2005 from the University of Central Florida. His last address was listed as Benghazi, Libya.

In 2011, Sotloff was a fellow with the Washington, D.C. think tank the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies.

  7. No one deserves that, but quite possibly its time that these journalists be kept out of war theatres

  8. True but then Obama is not helping Israel. Israel has its own problems with Hamas.

  9. So ISIS thinks killing some hostages will make Obama back off? Obama may not kill to suit everyone, but when he does, he does a good job. ISIS is screwed on this one.

  10. This might be a good time to deliver some fresh Ebola virus to those effing monsters.

  11. David Cohen says:

    The problem with biological warfare, besides violating International Law, is it can’t be precisely delivered to the intended target and can possibly be spread to friendly civilians and our own troops.

  12. Ronald Raff says:

    At least they are acting and doing something

  13. Details, details…;) but I agree David, however….

  14. Watch out Obama…the Muslims are flooding Europe and they have forgotten the plague of hitler that spread like cancer….they are too afraid to speak up and we are next.

  15. What else could be expected from the barbarians?..

  16. Nothing allegedly about this horror. My prayers go out to this mans family and friends. What a terrible thing to see your family member or friend suffer. Lord help us if these maniacs get loose in Western civilization. All stops should be removed to rid this from the earth, but we are too busy in the nations attempting to remove the One True Gods influence in our Countries. Well that gives us a realistic view of a society without the compassionate and gracious God of the Bible.

  17. Get all Americans out of that **** hole !

  18. They killed Arab Christians and Muslims

  19. This people are real savages!!!! And the scary thing is that a lot of them were born and raised in the west!The whole western world must join forces in order to defeat these lunatics once and for all! If we keep doing half jobs they will always come back. Maybe with a different name but always the same mission.

  20. The whole western world must join forces in order to defeat these lunatics once and for all! If we keep doing half jobs they will always come back. Maybe with a different name but always the same mission.

  21. Who was the journalist??

  22. Andy Rossell says:

    What is Obama going to do ?

  23. Enough is enough.
    Stop funding terrorists.
    Get those terrorists no matter where they are.
    Stop the madness.

  24. You have to be an idiot to be Jewish and travel to a muslim country especially full of islamists. Berg was the first one to be beheaded in Iraq, then Pearl in Afghanistan.What 's wrong with those stupid Jews ?

  25. Yosef Brown says:

    זיכרונו. May his memory be a blessing. May his family find
    לברכה. comfort in his memories and may HaShem give them שלום in their hearts.

    Yosef

  26. Cindy Kopman Rubin says:

    I fear this is only going to get worse. What is wrong with this world?

  27. Yosef Brown says:

    Please let's try to honor this man who lost his
    life in a horrific manner. Regardless of his poli-
    tical views. There is a mother grieving for a son,
    There let's show respect for the dead. People can
    express their political views on an other forum.
