Newsmax: “The Islamic State group released a graphic video on Sunday in which a black-clad militant claimed to have beheaded U.S. aid worker Peter Kassig, who was captured last year.
The video, which was posted on websites used by the group in the past, appeared to be the latest in a series of blood-soaked messages to the U.S. warning of further brutality if it does not abandon its air campaign in Iraq and Syria.
“This is Peter Edward Kassig, a U.S. citizen, of your country; Peter who fought against the Muslims in Iraq, while serving as a soldier,” the militant says near the end of the nearly 16-minute video. He speaks in an audible British accent despite his voice being distorted to make it more difficult to identify him.”
Opinion: I cannot remember in my lifetime anything to compare the public slaughter of American citizens without an all-out Air Force/boots on the ground military response.
The combined IS/al Qaeda/al Nusra groups are by far the most organized and best financed terror group in history. All three terror forces are made up of Muslim Brotherhood factions supported in the US by Muslim political groups INSA and CAIR, and in the ME by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
Since the Psalm 83:1-8 alliance is mostly Arab, it will be interesting to see if this group will represent additional prophesied nations. At present, only Assyria is moving under its control.
