ISIS Murdered Haruna Yukawa

Gateway Pundit had the story.

I'm looking this over at the moment. Anyway there was a delay in the release and Kenji Goto Jogo it appears is still alive.

At first glance it appears the new video is a hasty release, without the high production value in the previous video. It is a simple audio message over a the above still image.

Our thoughts go out to the People of Japan and to the family of Haruna Yukawa.

Update: In the video, in which Jihadi John is conspicuously absent Kenji Goto Jogo in English says the captors demands have changed. The demand for ransom is dropped and that Mr. Goto will be traded for a single female captive help by the Jordanians.

I'm not sure the spelling of her name or who she is. I will update shortly on that.

I can verify that Haruna Yukawa has been murdered.

Obviously something has seriously went wrong for the al-Furqan Media cell that was running this operation. But the video appears authentic despite the obvious difficulty al-Furqan is having.

More on the demands for the Jordanian prisoner here at USA Today

Goto, again speaking to his family, said in the purported video released Saturday that Islamic State had changed its ransom demand and no longer wanted money.

"Their demand is easier. They are being fair. They no longer want money. So you don't need to worry about funding terrorists. They are just demanding the release of their imprisoned sister Sajida al-Rishawi," he said.

Sajida al-Rishawi is a female suicide bomber dispatched by al-Qaeda in Iraq to attack a hotel in Jordan in 2005, SITE reported. She survived when her explosive belt failed to detonate.


Al-Rishawi was arrested by Jordanian authorities at the time of the attack on the Radisson SAS hotel in Amman that killed 57 people, many of whom were at a wedding reception.

She was later shown on Jordanian tV confessing to participating in the attack, the BBC reports. Jordanian police said she was the wife of one of three Iraqi male suicide bombers involved in the assault.

"My husband wore one [bomb] belt and I another -- he told me how to use it," she said, explaining that he took one corner of the hotel and she took another.

"There was a wedding in the hotel. There were women and children," she said. "My husband executed the attack. I tried to detonate and it failed. I left. People started running and I started running with them."

1 Now that she's had some time to think it over, I wonder if Sajida al-Rishawi wants to be exchanged and go join ISIS.
She's set up with hots and a cot and is above ground breathing air. Does she want to strap on the bomb vest all over again?

Islam, showing it's best stuff here today....this week....this month.....this year.........

2 Dang, That looks like Eric Idle's sister!

3 I got a better idea. Strap a bomb to her and detonate it when she gets picked up by Isis. After all, they are being fair, and it's giving her what she wants.

5 @Barry - "Dang, That looks like Eric Idle's sister!"

It *does*, doesn't it!
The resemblance is amazing!

Anyway, I'll tell you what - I'm not surprised that she wants to blow herself up. Given her looks, who would marry her (now that her husband has "done the big firework thing")?
Yuck - imagine waking up next to *that* in the morning......

6 It's time to exterminate these moslems. You're right. She does look like Eric Idle's sister. I wonder if the muslima carpet muncher likes spam.

7 Out of curiosity, what kind of special operations forces / black ops organizations does Japan have?

9 So sad for the Japanese.

As far as the trade goes, she has got to be one of the most unattractive women I have ever seen. I hope she does cover up properly.

10 They may cut off heads, but during WW2, we were no better. Neither were the Japanese.
No way to tell if they were dead, or if they did it to the living too, on both sides.

11 For $200 mil the Japanese government could hire a swarm of Yakuza hitmen/thugs to go there and kill any ISIS shits they see from one end of the region to the other.

12 phil - in ww2 amerians only sporadicly murdered non combatants, whereas the japanese did it as policy. And dont go down the touchy-feely path counting any civilian deaths caused indirectly or th newer leftard trick of counting the civilian deaths carried out by the other side as 'our fault' (cuz 'if there wasnt a war' ... yada yada the surrender monkey leftists mouth these days)
