An online video purports to show ISIS Islamic Extremists beheading Japanese journalist Kenji Goto. Goto was captured by Islamic terrorists in October, while traveling through Syria seeking the release of fellow countryman Haruna Yukawa.
Japanese officials had been furiously negotiating for Goto’s release.
The beheading video, named by them “A Message to the Government of Japan,” featured an Ismalic Terrorist resembling a man with a British accent who has taken part in other beheading videos by the same group. Goto, kneeling in an orange prison jumpsuit said nothing before being murdered by his Muslim captors.
“Abe,” the Islamic Terrorist says in the video, referring to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, “because of your reckless decision to take part in an unwinnable war, this man will not only slaughter Kenji, but will also carry on and cause carnage wherever your people are found. So let the nightmare for Japan begin.” In other words, Japan failed to pay the $200 million ransom demanded by his Muslim captors.
