ISIS Murders Kenji Goto Joto

ISIS has carried out the Murder Japanese hostage of Kenjo Goto Jogo.


I can confirm this is the case. In the video Jihad John appears, it is his voice, he then speaks about the Grace of Allah, but Kenji was shown no grace. Joto is silent and stoic, a still at the end of the video confirms his death.

Our prayers go out to the people of Japan and to his family.

Evil does abide on this Earth its name is ISIS.

Tolerance becomes a crime when applied to evil.

ISIS seems annoyed that states are not recognizing the power of the group as a true state, the irony of murdering a bound journalist while hiding in a ravine seems to escape them.

The video is also very short and has a number of issues playing outside a web browser. Its fairly high resolution but appears hastily prepared with out many of the post production features. Aside from the reappearance of the al-Furqan label.

1 I'm not surprised this was hastily prepared, after all there are so many American drones flying around the ISIS occupied region, that if these terrorists stayed too long in a ravine, then a drone may pick them up and would blow them up into smithereens. I suspect they choose the ravine, because it was isolated and the risk of somebody trying to rescue Kenji Goto at that location would be slim.

3 Capner ISIS is hardly hiding in ravines
It has captured and held the 2nd largest city in Iraq
It has 30+ Abrams tanks and500 captured humvees from Mosul
The Shia in Baghdad couldn't care less about the Sunni population being terrorized by ISIS
Yeah 7 years later I am now pretty sure The Surge !' Didn't really work I guess debate is over on that one now

May Joto's stoic memory be a blessing for us all.

6 Pretty bad idea to piss off the Japanese like this. They can be a very tough, ruthless people. Beheading a man with his arms tied, not a fair fight, no honor in this death, yeah, not too smart. If the Japanese say they will take revenge, they mean it.

8 These folks seem intent upon death to piss off the entire civilized portion of the human race on this planet.
What do they expect, that everyone will always pull a liberal, democrat and run skeert?
