According to CNN, American James Foley was beheaded by ISIS. "...Foley was abducted while on a reporting trip in northern Syria in November 2012. He was never heard from again. A video published Tuesday by the extremist group ISIS showed Foley being beheaded. It is not known when or where the video was recorded." read more

Your thoughts?

This must be absolutely horrifying for the family to see this all over the news. My thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family.

I completely agree that it was absolutely horrifying and I feel so bad for his family. I do not think this should be in the news constantly as it only eggs other terrorists on. Last night I saw that a rescue attempt had been made by the US to rescue this man but it failed. How can our enemies knowing that be a good thing? I think it is stupid to admit to such things.

The ISIS Islamic Terrorists are Supported by the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia

Global Research, August 16, 2014

Who’s Really Pulling the Strings?


The Times of Israel reported Wednesday:



A Free Syrian Army commander, arrested last month by the Islamist militia Al-Nusra Front, told his captors he collaborated with Israel in return for medical and military support, in a video released this week.Read more: Syrian rebel commander says he collaborated with Israel.




After all, there is evidence that the U.S. and her allies have wanted to break up the nations of Iraq and Syria for decades.  And ISIS has done so.


In any event – whether or not it’s true of ISIS – it’s well-documented that the U.S., Saudis and Israelis have been backing the world’s most dangerous and radical Muslim terrorists for decades. And see this.


And anyone who looks at the battle against ISIS as a religious war is being played.

Good Lord Katsung, you aren't really trusting that site as a valid news source are you? The US and Israel are in no way backing ISIS. ISIS is a radical Muslim group that is interested in wiping out all influences of western culture because western culture liberates and frees women (amoung other groups of people). This is completely about religion and anyone who doesn't think it is is completely blind.
