In a new video released on the Internet, it appears that the Islamic State, or I.S.I.S. (I.S.I.L.), has beheaded another prisoner. This time it’s British relief worker who was captured near the border of Syria a year and a half ago.
This be-heading is the 3rd such video in the last month, which appears to show the same militant, in a black mask, murder another inconnect. Two American journalists have already been murdered in the same style and manner.
I.S.I.S appeared to be now issuing a direct threat to David Cameron U.K. Prime Minister. This direct threat to the Britain and the killing of a British citisen might help rally the British people as well as the Parliament to get behind the U.S. lead action in the recent declaration by American military as “being at war with I.S.I.L”.
The amount of support Cameron gets is still unknown but this could shift the waters. In the meantime Cameron is facing a possible succession by Scotland from the United Kingdom in an independence vote on Thursday. This would create huge waves on both sides of the border, shaking the British government, undermining the electoral future of the British Labour Party and making it more likely that Britain will have a referendum on its own continued membership in the European Union.
