To the horror of almost every civilized human on the planet, the al-Qaeda allied terrorists known by the acronym ISIS left little to the imagination when it comes to dealing with their captives. As reported by Fox News on Aug.24, 2014, the jihadi terrorist who savagely carved American journalist James “Jim” Foley’s head off before the camera has been identified.
Fitting the textbook definition of terrorist, both American and British intelligence agencies have identified the executioner of Jim Foley who was executed while kneeling and had his hands tied behind his back. As reported by London’s The Sunday Times on Aug. 24, 2014, Great Britain’s MI5 and MI6 (Military Intelligence) ID’d as the knife-wielding killer of the unarmed Foley as British subject Abdel Majed Abdel Bary.
The 23-year-old failed wannabe Rap singer recently left his family’s £1 million ($1,667,000) home in west London’s affluent Maida Vale district to join the ISIS terrorists in their quest for world domination. Unable to find fame in the world of Hip-Hop, Bary has gained notoriety in the British press, now branded as “Public Enemy Number One” as well as “Jihadi John.”
London’s The Daily Mail reports on Aug. 24, 2014 that prior to his execution, Foley was the favorite “whipping boy” of the terrorists due to them discovering a photo of the slain reporter’s brother on his lap-top computer. The photo in question is of Foley’s older brother, a US Air Force Captain.
Reportedly a devout Catholic with a special devotion to the Rosary, Foley was crucified at least once to a wall at the hands of his ISIS captors. Not the first time taken by Islamists, Foley was also captured by Libyan jihaddists in 2011 during the Obama-supported attack on strongman Mohamar Kadaffi. As The Catholic World Report noted during his captivity:
I began to pray the rosary. It was what my mother and grandmother would have prayed. I said 10 Hail Marys between each Our Father. It took a long time, almost an hour to count 100 Hail Marys off on my knuckles. And it helped to keep my mind focused.
Clare and I prayed together out loud. It felt energizing to speak our weaknesses and hopes together, as if in a conversation with God, rather than silently and alone.
