Another beheading video has been released by ISIS, along with a separate online message with several threats.
The video, according to Fox News, shows three Islamic State fighters standing behind a kneeling Kurdish fighter as one of the terrorists begins to speak. The fighter, wearing all black and a full face mask, threatens President Obama directly when he says, “Know, oh Obama, that will reach America. Know also that we will cut off your head in the White House, and transform America into a Muslim Province.”
The video was discovered by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) on Tuesday, and it was translated from Arabic to English.
The ISIS militant follows his threat to Obama with a warning to European nations. “And this is my message to France and to its sister, Belgium,” he said. “We advise you that we will come to you with car bombs and explosive charges, and will cut off your heads.”
The video fades to black as one of the militants brings a knife up to the unidentified Kurdish fighter’s throat.
In a separate online message, ISIS posts a video on Tuesday that warned that the Japanese hostage Kenji Goto Jogo and Jordanian pilot the extremists have been holding captive both have less than “24 hours left to live.” They stick with their demand that Sajida al-Rishawi, who attempted to detonate a bomb at Anman hotels that would have killed even more that the 57 people that it did along with herself, be freed in exchange for the men.
In the video, Goto speaks again on a voiceover as he is shown holding up a picture of the captured Jordanian pilot, as he says “Any more delays by the Jordanian government will mean they are responsible for the death of their pilot, which then will be followed by mine. I only have 24 hours left to live, and the pilot has even less. Please don’t leave us to die.”
Japan and Jordan are hesitant to negotiate with ISIS because when they reached out to try to negotiate with them with the initial video that was released with the ISIS militant asking for $200 million ransom for two Japanese hostages, ISIS never responded. The countries feel like it may be a propaganda ploy and they are unsure if they can trust ISIS to release the prisoners if they give them their would-be suicide bomber back.
