Islamic State has released a video showing the beheading of British hostage David Haines. It comes just hours after his family issued a public plea for his captors to contact them.

Haines, who was 44, was kidnapped last year while working for French humanitarian aid agency ACTED in Syria in March 2013. He had been in Syria for just three days when he was kidnapped, reportedly by a rebel group who later sold him to ISIS.
He is the third foreigner to be beheaded by these creatures and, sadly, unlikely to be the last.
For once words fail me.

This is so horrendous! Every time I read about what they do I just can't understand it. It reminds me of hundreds of years ago, when the Arabs or Crusaders or the Huns captured vast territories and conquered ethnic groups and countries and raped and murdered endlessly, I am sure that beheadings were part of the deal. But today?? We are supposed to be civilized! And such cruelty - the media exposes and shows everything, they are proud of themselves. It's just inconceivable. Thanks Stan.

where is Obama? If some goof ball even threatens to burn some dirty Quran and all of its hate preachings he is on the airwaves inmediately outraged over that insult to Islam. But hundreds of thousands of Christians, Buddhists, Hindus and others are being ethnically cleansed, tortured, raped, be headed, and brutalized and all under the commands of Allah in his Quran. Where is the outrage?

Beheadings are part of Islam, it is in the koran. I don't understand the kerfuffle in the media about this as they are usually so busy hiding or twisting the facts.

8:12 I will throw fear into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Then smite the necks and smite of them each finger.

47:4 Now when ye meet in battle those who disbelieve, then it is smiting of the necks until, when ye have routed them, then making fast of bonds; and afterward either grace or ransom till the war lay down its burdens.

Allan Yorkowitz is right! And this is partly a message to Obama too, in reply to his " speech" .As usual, he is doing nothing.

Obama did speak out about it. He also had spoken out about what they did to the American hostages and he has begun bombing areas in which those ISIS terrorists were located.

I really think that this is horrid indeed

The 'Kerfuffle' is that an innocent human being, husband, father, son, brother, friend, Aid Worker has been beheaded whilst attempting to help people in desperate need. Is this a sick comment Ge M - you are on a Caring Site - I am British and am sickened and appalled, just as I was when two Americans were executed and the brutal beheadings filmed. I am so outraged over your comments, as a civilized person I will leave it here. My Love and Sympathy to all the Loved Ones. So Very Sorry.

I am very sad, RIP Mr. Haines. he were no soldier, he was a aid worker, in the 2. World War Red Cross and Aid Worker never got touched by the enemy, Mr. Haines were no Muslim and had nothing to do with the Koran.Ge M you live in England, and you should have more feelings and respect in a case like that. I find your note disgusting .

very sad story. How we are ever going to stop this, I don't know. We can't bomb the stars out of countries in hopes of finding the actual ones who were the be headers and those who filmed the beheading. We can't say that the innocent who will die as a result of bombing are "collateral".
Believe it or not there are good people in every country. Just as there are evil ones in ours, and perhaps, if we really are honest...some of our family members and "friends" you wouldn't let baby sit your own children.
How many Americans are killed by other Americans yearly? We will never know if the missing children on the milk bottles were tortured and killed.
The only thing we can do is influence people we come in contact with. Treat your loved ones with respect and compassion.

while other religions may include reasons for applying a death sentence in their ancient scriptures, it's only islam these days that practices beheading foreign nationals, caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. and then makes a festival of it.

Parsifal, your comments are disrespectful, vulgar, tasteless, insulting, and evil. Take your meds and crawl back under your rock.

They have taken up the sword, as like medieval times - horrific, brutality such as this in a supposed to be - civilized world, is what is so shocking.
RIP Mr. Haines, and my deepest sympathy to your family and friends.

Margaret Snowden - I think you miss the point in the Ge M. posting and previous ones. This crowd ISIS or whatever they call themselves have beheaded or killed in various ways thousands of "unbeleivers" from Yazidi, Christian, Shai'a communities including children and even babies. They have forced young girls into becomimg the whores of their soldiers. In the meantime most of the mainstream media downplayed these events and continue to do so. Only when journalists or in this case an AID worker is killed do they react. Something is clearly wrong with the value system and bias of the media and not with Ge M.

Is a soldiers life worth less then a non soldier ? If you think so , you are not or have not been the parent of a soldier . Most of you have never worn a uniform so how can you judge ? I am happy that since I am no longer a soldier or a police officer (been both) my life is worth more then when I was in uniform . Yeah right . Debra, I love your comment !! Thank you Bernard for your comment to M. Snowden . This arrogant, civilized person as she calls herself will be more then appalled when she meets some terrorists . M. Rosberg better check her history before she talks .

They ISIS, are sadists of the worst kind and would need an extension ladder to kiss a snakes bum and even then the ladder would be too short. They have lost the right to be called human beings and have relegated themselves to savages and devil workers. The shirt fits and they are left wearing blood stained clothing that suits murderous cut throat savage sadists. If the religion has no room for love and goodness then the book needs to be re written only evil despotic cruel fools would take the worst parts of a book and practice it with such zeal. My sympathy and loving thoughts are with all victims of these sub human types.

It seems they wait for the family plea, and then do the unthinkable.

Noted. Beheading anyone while they are alive and fully conscious is cruel, barbaric and horrific in the extreme. If ISIL wish to kill their perceived enemies, they could at least do it in an humane way.
