A second American journalist has been brutally murdered by ISIS. There is a third captive journalist already in the queue.
The U.Ss media and that of other Western nations have chosen to not air the entire video due to the graphic and grisly nature of the murder. Wat we Americans are allowed to see is a fragment of the ISIS video that shows a docile victim, wearing an orange jumpsuit ala Guantanamo, kneeling in the dirt while the supposed executioner waves a knife around and promises more “executions” of Americans and other Westerners. This seems to be the same murderer who beheaded the journalist Foley last month.
This hostage taking and subsequent murder of the hostage by Islamic terrorists has to be stopped. This murder of U.S, and Western allies must not be allowed to determine the course of politics in the Middle East. Islamic fundamentalist must not be allowed to rampage, pillage, and rape their way to a statehood that would drag the regional culture back to the 8th century.
To begin, the ISIS killings are not “executions” but murders. Executions are carried out by nations with legal systems that are acting in accordance with constitutions and legal frameworks. ISIS is not a nation, the Koran is not a constitutional document. Thus, the act of killing hostages is murder and should be treated and discussed as such by our media and our government.
I have no compunctions concerning the hunting down and execution of ISIS killers by our government or those of other Western nations.
In this age of resurgent anti-Semitism brought about in part by the repetitive bloody sacrifices of Gazan and other Arabs by their fundamentalist Islamic leaders and funding of the continual wars against Israel, the U.S., and other western nations, it becomes important that the pro-arab political correctness that exists widely across the U.S. be reversed and that the true brutality of ISIS, Hamas, Hezbollah, and the other gangs of thugs and brigands sponsored ultimately by Iran be honestly depicted as the murderous cowards that they are.
What our media shows us is a much watered down glimpse of murders of unarmed, helpless hostages using a particularly brutal and painful means. The murderer and any other gang members in sight have their faces covered tp prevent them being identified by physical or electronic means. This is consistent with many of the propaganda video emanating in the middle east. Most, if not all the participants have their faces covered. They apparently lack the courage to be known when committing rapes, robberies, murders, kidnappings, and other crimes that would cause them to be arrested and tried in a country with a functional government.
Dylan provided the title line today. He also provided the tag. When the West has grown tired of fundamentalist Islamic depradations, it will finally inite in action against them. ISIS and others need to know, “it’s a hard rain gonna fall!”
