ISIS Sends 2nd Beheading "Message In Blood" Video; Warns Kurds "Huge Mistake Joining Hands With America"

Tyler Durden's picture

Just hours after hours after another video purporting to show the mass execution of up to 250 Syrian soldiers in the desert, The Independent reports ISIS has released a video apparently showing the beheading of a Kurdish man in Iraq as a warning to Kurds fighting the group in the country. The video, entitled "A Message in Blood" ends with the victim beheaded and the fighters warn others will face the same fate should Kurdish leaders choose to continue an alliance with the US.

Image from the latest beheading clip:

As The Daily Mail reports,

While the captives and executors are dressed in similar fashion to those seen in the James Foley execution 10 days ago, it is unclear if the two incidents were carried out by the same people.


The production of the propaganda video also differs - with the beheading shown alongside still images of American and Kurdish officials in an attempt to help convey the executioner's message.


In the six minute video, which has not been independently verified, the prisoners, who are are seen wearing orange boiler suits similar to those worn by prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, confirm that they had been fighting for the Peshmerga, and had been captured by the jihadist group.


The video includes one earlier shot of the Kurdish soldiers, appearing to still be wearing their Peshmerga uniforms, shortly after they were captured. Speaking in Kurdish, one of the prisoners, Hassan Mohammed Hashin, reads out a carefully pre-prepared statement, lambasting the Kurdish leaders: 'You have made a huge mistake by joining hands with America.'

Sadly NBC News reports that the previous video of James Foley also saw him "waterboarded"...

Photojournalist James Foley was repeatedly tortured by his ISIS captors — who even waterboarded him — before he was beheaded, sources told NBC News. As the Washington Post first reported, the Islamic extremists appeared to be deliberately imitating the controversial U.S. "enhanced interrogation technique," which simulates drowning. Waterboarding, which was authorized by President Bush's administration, was banned by President Obama, who denounced it as torture.

The alleged Kurd beheading clip can be found here (via The Daily Mail) - yet oddly enough, like the Foley beheading clip the actual decapitation has been faded to black. One wonder how long until more claims alleging this too video was staged emerge?

The execution of 250 Syrian soldiers can be found here - graphic.

oj just converted to islam, the beheadings were the clincher.

Nicole Simpson was almost decapitated.

But since OJ embraced Islam I'm sure he now would have finished the job.

Their inaction to this point is troubling. However more troubling is that factually ISIS only broke away from the broader horde of savages relatively recently so the core of ISIS exists because the West and Gulf states MADE them. Period.

Whether we nade them or not is immaterial.   What you do with people like this is you kill them.  That is the strategy.  I find it hard to believe we do not know exactly where each and every one of these fuckers is.  So you just go in and kill every last one of them.  What is Obama waiting for?  Oh yeah, he is one of them.  No wonder we do not have a strategy.

be glad that most humans don't think this way, otherwise, as a result of the evil U.S. government, the rest of the world would indeed kill off all americans as soon as the petro dollar/MIC complex collapses...

Today children we learn (2)two new terms,

Moral relativism is the view that ethical standards, morality, and positions of right or wrong are culturally based and therefore subject to a person's individual choice. We can all decide what is right for ourselves.

Moral equivalence is a term used in political debate, usually to criticize any denial that a moral hierarchy can be assessed of two sides in a conflict, or in the actions or tactics of two sides

Feels like 2002 again. After Syria (worst person in human history gassin' folks must be stopped) and Iran (greatest threat in the known universe) didn't go anywhere I thought maybe the population had turned a new leaf.

be afraid, very afraid... this just in, according to big brother, "isis"  is operating in Mexico:

"Judicial Watch sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas."

makes me wonder if this ties in with the story about the missing kurdish oil tanker in the GOM...

Any future President of the USA should be a veteran and should have fought in a war.  Only then can they truly appreciate the horror of war, the challenge of war and sometimes the necessity for war. Our current president is clueless. Bad people who do evil things and who threaten our live are our enemies.  No prisoners, kill them all, so none will return to take their place.

Not a great strategy when you look around the world or into history. 

How about take the profit out of war? Problem with war is it makes so many people so gawddamn much money. Who's  the worlds biggest employer btw? If you said department of war, er i mean defence, you would be correct!

I know y'all don't like taxes, but here's a tax idea. Make costs of war paid exclusively by corps on a scaled tax basis, so the bigger you are the more you get to chip in and do your patriotic duty! The bigger the war the bigger the tax bill. Since multinationals rely more or less exclusively on the US military for their continued existence, makes sense they get to pay for it.

The general problem (genius of it?) is that the little guy gets killed fighting the wars and then his relatives get to pay for it all through the nose meanwhile the big cheese get all the profit, all the benefits & none of the risk. 

Actually, since there's a movement to get rid of the corporate tax altogether they could just replace it with this. The trillion dollars in war, er defence, spending become the new corporate tax. The less war the less you gotta pay!

Do this tax for war and world peace tomorrow.

Perfect excuse for Israel to grab more territory in Syria.  They can false flag ISIS rocket launches into Golan Heights, then under pretext of security take over large swaths of southern Syria that are basically depoplulated already.  With the Golan Heights they can dominate larger areas due to the great artillery vantage positions.  Southern Syria will become greater Israel and assure a route for the pipeline for Qatar gas.  Assad will be neutered with a small enclave and coastline in Northern Syria.

ISIS doesn't have long for this world.  Even the other Arabs and Persians hate them.  Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Killings by masked men only give us proof of their hypocrisy and psychopathy. By refusing to show themselves, they demonstrate cowardice and absolute fear of discovery, and summarily deny the god they claim to hold such faith in. They are frauds and their pretense of religion is a fraud.

curbjob's picture

Seriously ? You think they considered religion when they masked themselves ??

They're protecting friends and family from being renditioned ... like any other guerilla army, facing a technologically superior enemy, would. Sheesh.

"The clash between the international economy and the political institutions that ostensibly govern it also weakens the sense of common purpose necessary for world order. The economic system has become global, while the political structure of the world remains based on the nation-state. Economic globalization, in its essence, ignores national frontiers. Foreign policy affirms them, even as it seeks to reconcile conflicting national aims or ideals of world order."

If the economy is globalized then how can there be conflicting national aims? Perhaps there are conflicting national aims PRECISELY BECAUSE the economy is globalized. Historically, most conflicts occur between adjacent territories, or I wish to conquer point B so I conquer all the territory from point A to point B. It is only a globalized economy that maintains the conditions wherein America can launch a sustained war against a nation on the opposite side of the planet. Only in a globalized economy can jihadis from all over the world fly to wherever the hotspot of terror conflict happens to be.

If we properly understand the full meaning of 'economy', tracing the word all the way back to 'economia', then we would expect no national conflicts in a globalized economy. In fact, what we call 'national conflicts' are nothing more than violent narratives constructed by national/multinational/

international/anational security firms, which profit from war, and the people foolish enough to get sucked into said narratives.

One lesson no one seems to be learning is; if you're fighting Isis, you better fight to the death.

Better to take a couple of these bastards with you than let them execute you and defile your corpse.

What were these Syrians thinking?

Lea's picture

"What were these Syrians thinking?"

So your government arms and train jihadists against the Syrian Govt, and it's all the Syrians' fault?

We're reaching heights here.

"So your government arms and train jihadists..."

My government? I thought it was your government!

Project much?

I could give a rats ass about Syrians, I just said the 250 (did you read the article? ) that surrendered and were executed probably wish they hadn't surrendered.

And it would be wise of anyone, of any race, color, or creed, to reconsider surrendering to these dudes.

Hah, I logged in to reply to Lea with the same phrase, "Project much!" You beat me to it.

The main reason the Kurds survived Saddam is because of a twelve-year coalition-imposed no-fly-zone from 1992 - 2004 north of Iraq's 36th parallel.

Peshmerga were excellent guerilla fighters back in the day when they fought for all the Kurdish people. Today, the left-over Iraqi Peshmerga are fighting for corrupt Kurd sell-out politicians in Erbil - the 'Southern Kurdish Goernment'. That means rich Kurdish oligarchs in Erbil, not some average Kurd family living in the North. 

Southern Kurd Peshmerga chose to abandon Sinjar leaving Yazidi kurds to their deaths at the hands of ISIS. It was the Western Kurd Peshmerga that came over from Syria to fight for the Yazidi people. The U.S. considers Western Kurd Peshmerga to be terrorists becase they are fighting for independence from Turkey.

To the U.S.:

Western Kurd Peshmerga (Syria) = terrorists (but are really the good guys)

Southern Kurd Peshmerga (Iraq) = oilfield guards (and obedient U.S./Israeli lapdogs)

ISIS, aren't you guys Muslims?  If you are so hungry for territory, why not invade Israel?  It's right next door you know.  It's full of those people you are supposed to hate due to their religion.  Why aren't you invading?  I mean, you are threatening the USA, but you are too chicken shit to invade Israel?  Gee, somethig doesn't add up here....

Yeah, and they beheaded a fellow Muslim, the "religion of peace".

Is Obama a Muslim or Christian or a Voodoo Priestess?

This is the real mystery of the ISIS situation Sam.

No secret that Saudi Arabia has in the past been trusted by the West to control sunni radicals.

The question now is wether the Saudis have lost control or if this is part of the plot.

If they lost control and ISIS is really a rogue group trying to set up a Caliphate, ISIS would be consolidating power and resources of the arab world, before retaking Jerusalem.

Second probable scenario, ISIS is controlled by Saudis, who have a behing the curtain dealings, and a peace treaty with Israel, and they would be forbidden from attacking Israel to retake Jerusalem. This scenario is very likely, since ISIS is currently weakening Israel's and Saudi Arabia's known rivals in the area.


Either way, non of this can end well, for anyone, this situation can easily set off a bigger conflict in the region and beyond. Hopefully cooler heads will prevail on all sides somehow.

Whether "we" made them or not is the heart of the matter. Defeat the evil master or battle his lessor minions forever.

petkovplamen's picture

nope, it IS exactly the heart of the matter. You made them exactly so you will have somebody to fight. If you hadn't made them, there is no reason for USA/NATO to be in the Middle East. So the question of who made them is the most important question to ask.

disabledvet's picture

So if we attack them and lose does that mean we lost to ourselves?
