I was appalled when I saw the video of journalist James Foley being beheaded. You know I don’t understand how people can take the life of someone who has not done anything to them. Most of the time in these particular situations these Islamist groups believe what they are doing is honor. They believe that this is what god says to do. The killing was carried out because of the recent airstrikes against ISIS. This is the group responsible for the beheading of James Foley and threatens to kill a second American journalist Steven Sotloff. I get it you’re angry because of airstrikes but this does not justify the killing of someone who had nothing to do with that.
President Obama made this statement in the video, “ISIL speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents. No just God would stand for what they did yesterday and what they do every single day.”
