Obama condemns beheading of David Haines by I.S.

David Haines  BEHEADING 2
A still image taken from a purported Islamic State video released September 13, 2014 of British captive David Haines before he is beheaded. Islamic State militants fighting in Iraq and Syria released a video on Saturday which purported to show the beheading of British aid worker Haines. Reuters could not immediately verify the footage. However, the images were consistent with that of the filmed executions of two American journalists, James Foley and Steven Sotloff, in the past month. Haines, a 44-year-old father of two from Perth in Scotland, was kidnapped last year while working for the French agency Reuters/SITE Intel Group via Reuters TV

In response to the apparent beheading of David Haines, a kidnapped British aid worker, by the militant group Islamic State, U.S. President Barack Obama condemned the terrorist group and pledged to stand with Britain to “degrade and destroy this threat.” “The United States strongly condemns the barbaric murder of UK citizen David Haines by the terrorist group ISIL [an alternate name for the group],” the president said in a statement.

“Our hearts go out to the family of Mr. Haines and to the people of the United Kingdom. The United States stands shoulder to shoulder tonight with our close friend and ally in grief and resolve. We will work with the United Kingdom and a broad coalition of nations from the region and around the world to bring the perpetrators of this outrageous act to justice, and to degrade and destroy this threat to the people of our countries, the region and the world,” the statement said.

U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron responded to the news that broke Saturday by vowing to do anything in his power to “hunt down these murderers” and ensure justice is served.

The video released by the jihadist group reportedly mimics the same style of execution and production of the previous beheading videos of American reporter James Foley and Israeli-American Steven Sotloff. Dressed in the similar orange jump suit, a masked militant reportedly points to Cameron, and his predecessor, Tony Blair, and the country’s relationship with the U.S. as being responsible for Haines’ death.

“You entered voluntarily into a coalition with the United States against the Islamic State, just as your predecessor, Tony Blair,” Haines’ executioner said.

    Keep digging your own grave ISIL,this kind of stuff will not be forgotten.

    1. Be carful what you say Shirdel, I asked Zabada if the beheading of a volunteer is justifiable and he returned at me with “jews are my masters” “My head should be cut off” and “shia women will cry at my funeral” lol.
      Anything to change the subject, some go as far as asking for the photo of the men in orange not to be shown incase it triggers a conscience attack on them or make Isis look bad, We are not permitted to have any feelings for the killing of an innocent man, go figure.

      1. Didn’t know you’re a shiia. Lol

        1. lol I didn’t either, depending on how long you have been reading here I have been accused of being Wahabi, Salafist, Zionist,shiite,Irani,jewish and much much more, pro ALL civilian is not acceptable, the way to impress some is to be a knife sharpner.

          1. It matters not what you are;If You disagree with them you better watch your head.

            As opposed to ur heroes hezbsatan, who will chop ur head off if u r Sunni.
            I bet this is that retard prophettttt

          3. So you switch Allah for Satan in your post above, and you are accusing the man of hypocrisy???
            You should be crying blood and not tears.

          5. How dare you change the word Satan for Allah in your Post on Hizbullah. Do you even realize how serious is this even if you do not agree with the group?

          6. $89733098 Avatar

            Lol ok. R u gonna chop off my head?

          7. Are you trying to paint me as some fanatic, when I am appealing to your conscience and showing you the gravity of your words!

            I will tell you this: you are one of the brightest people on these boards, but your heart is in the wrong place. Get rid of your ugly sectarianism and put truth and justice first.

          8. $89733098 Avatar

            So if I support hezbsatan I will not b sectarian? Wow

          9. Hizbullah does not need your support or mine, but at least do not judge the whole sect and you do.

          10. Also I gather you are a Muslim, so on what basis do you judge the sect?

          11. Also, you know that hundreds of thousands of people were wrongfully killed because of sectarianism and by inciting the same you are equally responsible for the bloodshed, so how can you justify yourself, and don’t you fear God’s judgment?

            Please provide evidence of ur claim otherwise get back in ur corner. I’m pretty sure Jesus said that.

          14. Ok, let me explain further:

            “Woe to you, woe to you who speak good of the evil, and call the evil
            good, for ye condemn as a malefactor God, who is the author of good, and
            justify as good Satan, who is the origin of all evil. Consider what
            punishment ye shall have, and that it is horrible to fall into the
            judgment of God…”
            Jesus of Nazareth

            You can keep knocking on that door my friend, however unfortunately there will be no answer. Don’t waste your time. You have a better chance at hitting your head against a brick wall as opposed to getting through her thick head.

            OK .. HELL then, IT IS A Female Descriptive Word … as opposed to a Male Descriptive Word … and a way of explaining that in English there is a difference between the two when writing. Have you heard some of these people trying the ‘He/She’ and ‘His/Hers’ concept??? You have to start somewhere … and Dab’s translator will appreciate knowing it.
            Although, all you want to do is take shots at me for some unknown and NEVER explained reason. Write if you want to explain it. Apparently I said something ‘wrong’ in your mind. Too weird.
            (something about Aussies I think ….)

            Well, Barabian partner Malmequer impersonated Comtessa di Alba..who declared: “I was circumcised
            at age 7 so i don’t care about bf “hum.. di Alba is Spanish for Abyad:))..(Dabb is witty).

          44. Good morning Hind, There are a lot of good people that comment here, many are bent out of shape and distressed due to injustice taking place and it is understandable if there is frustration and anguish in their comments as all people and sects suffer in the path of war.

            What you are referring to is a few individuals that are obsessed with inflicting harm to you as something they enjoy doing, everyone can see it and it only serves to shame them publicly with their comments, the likes that you see in their comments are likes they give themselves from an alternate computer in the same room. I said a long time ago that I only take advice from people who are where I want to be in life, the individuals that display so much hate and enjoyment 24/7 of verbal abuse of others CAN NOT have anything good taking place in their lives. by the same token if you and I don’t agree with each others comments neither one of us disrespects the other and treat our views as the most important element to a friendship, the fact is neither you or me have created all the evil taking place around us and we are powerless in making a difference except in how we treat each other as civilians and observers and for that you have always been a friend and always will be.

            one last thing, currently I have 19 beautiful birds that I care for, do you know which one is my favorite? answer= just like people THE INJURED ONES.
            the more they abuse you my friend the more I love you :).

        Didn’t you know Zabada is a historian that knows everything?? And that these people (ISIS and other terrorist groups) are forced to do the things they do becasue they are oppressed?? Oh and my favorite part that America is the true terrorist.

        1. Selective history, selective justice Virgo, a lot like a lawyer defending a murderer to set him free but the following week he gets offered a better paying salary to becomes a prosecuter, present him now with a carbon copy case and evidence and he will do everything he can to argue for the death penalty.

          Man kind will preach a bar and keep moving it up and down and compromise integrity to meet his temporary needs forgetting that he that takes pictures from above does NOT overlook anyone guilty of murder.

  3. These terrorists must not be given a lot of publicity!That is what they are after and that is what they are getting!!!They depend on it to spread their fear !!!!!

    1. Or in order to serve someone’s else agenda. At these times of great deceptions, you just can’t believe what you see and hear anymore, although the hatred had blinded most.
