There are videos and there are pictures. I am linking neither. I am also not advising anyone look them up.

Today, ISIS (which now just goes by “the Islamic State”) has released a video of a member of theirs beheading American photojournalist James Foley. From Mediaite:

Foley had been missing since November 22, 2012 when he disappeared in Syria.

Mediaite has chosen not to post or link out the video of Foley’s killing, but in the footage ISIS terrorists force him to read a letter urging Americans to rise up against his “real killer,” “the U.S. government.” In addition, Foley says the U.S. airstrikes against ISIS “hammered the final nail into [his] coffin.”

The politics will rage back and forth on this, and we will eventually get caught in the crossfire. Until then, take a moment and pray for Foley’s family and may God have mercy on the souls of ISIS, for they will be judged on their evils soon enough.

UPDATE: The Islamic State is now threatening to kill another prisoner, Steven Sotloff. Pray for a miracle, friends.
