Religion of Peace enters hostage and extortion business


Are ISIS running out of money?  Why else would the men and women of Islamic State need to do such non-peaceful things as demand money for the return of hostages?

The Islamic State has released a video threatening to kill two Japanese hostages unless they receive $200 million within 72 hours.

It comes two days after Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe pledged the same amount in non-military support of countries fighting ISIS. 

The clip, posted on militant websites associated with the extremist group, featured the British-accented jihadi widely known as ‘Jihadi John’ who appeared in the beheading videos of David Haines, Alan Henning, James Foley, and Steven Sotloff.

The militant with a British accent in the video said the Japanese were targeted for supporting Western military efforts against the Islamic State group, which now holds a third of Iraq and Syria under its self-declared caliphate.

‘You have proudly donated $100 million to kill our women and children, to destroy the homes of the Muslims,’ the militant says.

A British-accented jihadi also has appeared in the beheading videos of slain American hostages James Foley and Steven Sotloff, and with British hostages David Haines and Alan Henning.

Jihadi John should be up for an Academy Award for all his movies.

It is clear that there is no reasoning or negotiating with these people.  The sooner the West deals with them, the better.

The Islamic State group has beheaded and shot dead hundreds of captives — mainly Syrian and Iraqi soldiers — during its sweep across the two countries, and has celebrated its mass killings in extremely graphic videos.

Yep.  Religion of Peace.  Kills anyone who doesn’t particularly cares to follow the rules to the required standards.  Rapes women,  tortures children.  And now is in the international hostage for cash business.

When will the world say “enough!”?

  • We’ll say ‘enough’ once we deal with our own problem first: progressive numpties. Until ‘the West’ stops having endless streams of apologists, identity-politic racists, tree-huggers, etc. we won’t be able to deal with real problems, as we’ll be fighting our own imaginary problems. We’ll have never-ending ‘inequality’, regardless of actual poverty dropping. We’ll have ‘crises’ that we ‘feel bad about’, when there are actual barbarians in the world doing terrible things. So until we manage to defuse the numpties, and I don’t mean through violence, we’ll get perpetual distractions.

    • MaryLou

      Well said. In the absence of real problems in this country we’ve had ample time on our hands to over-inflate what are, in a global context, very trivial things. To the point when a real problem turns up, our only way of dealing with it is to put our collective heads in the sand.

    • david

      Did you read Jamie Whyte the other day. Of course he got the usual tirade of abuse but what he was doing was drawing the parallels between the tobacco/ sugar / we know what’s best for you police (ie progressive numpties) and the Paris terrorists.

  • Cadwallader

    Prime Minister Abe would be well advised to look to his forefathers and conjure up some Samurai spirit. The honourable Japanese warriors of the past would stare down this Islamofilth and destroy it.

  • spanishbride

    The barbaric idiots have in one foul swoop made us a new ally. Japan will not take this lightly. Before this they were supporting with money only, but now ISIS have made it personal. it won’t be long before Japan joins the West by adding its militiary might to the mix. I said it was going to be world war 3 and I still believe that I am right.

    • MaryLou

      I think you are right too, but it’ll be a war like we’ve never seen before, and the time scale will dwarf the others. In the past the enemy was in easily identifiable places, and us like the Americans (apart from the Twin Towers), have never had to fight on home soil. We have a lot of work to do to even begin to prepare for this. Meaning general population as well as government.

    • Cadwallader

      Hence my comment below. There will be a tipping point which our leaders, if they can regard themselves as such, fail to recognise, the response will be unstoppable. I do not see the anger in the West is yet sufficient but it will come. The War will be overtly against ISIS but beneath this it will be a war between the entire world and Islam.

    • GoingRight

      Each night I comment on the state of the world as I watch or read about the horrendous happenings around the world. Our poor children and grandchildren as they will not know the peace we baby boomers have been privileged to have had throughout our lives. It is all very upsetting. I believe there will be WW3 also. Tragic, just tragic.

    • friardo

      The phrase is “one fell swoop”. Foul, fowl and the occasional fail swoops add a comic touch wheres fell actually relates to felon and means vicious or cruel rather than cutting down a tree.

      Isis, Boko Haram, Hamas and the like can’t be removed or diminished with a single blow. Possibly if every Iman suffered from sudden illness, inexplicable accidents, disappearance, madness or incontinence, then fewer and fewer would view such a career favourably. Spreading swine flu amongst such terrorists make them a complete “laughing stock”. Even the vaccine would be unacceptable I suppose.

      • spanishbride

        Yes you are quite right, it was a play on words deliberately made :)

  • Bryan

    i think the Japanese and the French get together and give them a very simple message
    Release all the hostages in 48 hours or we will bomb mecca with a nuke and that would set every moslem in the world after their blood.
    Sometimes the best defence is attack and take out the heart of the enemy. It’s time to give islam the message there are consequences for your actions, all Europe should cancel all passports of those who have gone to fight for isis and make them personal not gratis and also publish all their names and pictures on world wide media.
    Simply you choose to join them it’s a one way ticket we now consider you enemy of our country.and if we find you supporting those who went, you also will be deported. it’s time we stopped being nice to these murderers and their backers

    • One_step_beyond

      Give ISIS a message by bombing Saudi Arabia?

    • rangitoto

      Probably not a good idea since it would make enemy of all Muslims. The Saudi government aint too keen on ISIS either as ISIS would overthrow them if they could.

      • Cadwallader

        I don’t know that it would. I think the date to front foot this filth is now! I think a nuke is not required but a serious ground invasion through Armenia. The word is the Armenian army is pro-active in the region anyway in their bid to rid the land of ISIS.

    • Tom

      Nah too messy. Do it the Mossad way: Mouthy Imams just have ‘accidents’

  • Kevin

    Just of couple of lone hostage-takers not connected to anyone or anything and pretending to be connected to this fictional Islamist organization called “ISIS” to make them sound more intimidating.

  • caochladh

    I thought the British government confirmed some time ago that it was going to make it a priority to hunt down the murdering mongrel Jihadi John swine. With all the electronic, satellite and drone surveillance, ground mapping and just plain old fizzes in situ, I would have thought that some progress should have been made by now.

    • Cadwallader

      Why do the Islamos dress their victims in orange clothing. Is this the mark of an infidel or is it easier to wash the blood out of them after a beheading? If the beheading garments are indeed recyclable ISIS may be a branch of a Greenie party. This apparent connection requires further investigative journalism. Come on Aandrea, Rachael & co!

      • caochladh

        Probably a quid pro quo for Guantanamo, or they found the supplier and bought the surplus uniforms on the cheap now that GT is closed.

    • johnnymanukau.

      Just be patient, some time soon you will have what we all want. In fact it may already have happened and Jihadi John is just a photo shop image!

  • Eiselmann

    Imagine if they were called the ‘Religion of child raping, mass murdering, abusers of women who are commanded to take over the world and kill everyone who doesn’t believe in what they believe’…boy would we be in trouble.

    • Bombastic

      And I was always taught that honesty was the best policy. How times have changed.

  • kloyd0306

    Apart from Netanyahu, there is no other leader that has the will to act against the terror being espoused by the radical arms of Islam.

    The pansy, leftist American voters that kept Muslim sympathizer Obama in power for another 4 years has resulted in all other leaders being mute.

    Bibi is THE man among world leaders – the rest are wimps with the biggest wimp of all being Obama-the-wimp.

    • conwaycaptain

      Bring in Boris he is made in the Churchillian mould.

    • Cadwallader

      Putin may be the man for the moment?

  • rangitoto

    Meanwhile ISIS have had musicians in Bujaq beaten for playing un-islamic musical instruments such as electronic keyboards.

  • coventry

    Is it just me or does this image shout of photo shop and a green screen.

    * Hostage 1 on Left – Has shadow on the left side of his face
    * Hostage 2 on Right – Has shadow on the right side of his face
    * Hostage 1 has eyes wide open, not the norm for outside in bright sunshine, wheras Hostage 2 appears to be squinting.
    * All three are ‘in focus’ as is the background

    It just looks fake to me. Anyone else concur ?

    • pak

      Video this has come from looks gruesomely real to me.

    • Cadwallader

      These lunatics play for keeps. This looks genuine to me. They may have a piece or two of arc lighting to highlight their pride-filled works?

    • Cowgirl

      I concur – looks fake which is maybe why they haven’t been able to find this scumbag. He’s probably in a city somewhere staging all of these for effect.

    • Albert Lane

      My wife is a photoshop expert. She has no hesitation in agreeing with you.

    • Dave_1924

      first reaction looking at it is it is a in studio shot…

    • Genevieve

      The still shot certainly has the appearance of having been done with green screen and photoshop. Video clip is slightly more realistic but various news outlets claiming that it might be composite. However, this is more likely to be a deterrent to identification of the site where ISIS are operating from, than a fake hostage situation. Japan cannot possibly capitulate to the demands of ISIS so it is quite likely that outcome of this will be another tragedy. This crisis will certainly challenge the largely pacifist Japanese public, and It will be interesting to see if Prime Minister Abe is still able to pursue a more active role for Japan in global security issues. This incident may well be viewed by many as the price paid for such involvement.

    • NZ 2014

      Yep, as photographer who uses PS as well i would say it has been altered.

  • timemagazine

    I hope the Greens are reading this too.

  • Rachael Membery

    Has Japan said no ransom will be paid? I thought I read that as the men went voluntarily that there would be no ransom paid. That suggests to me that it could be on a case by case basis.

  • Tom

    Can we send Wussell for a swap.
