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!”?
