• Algerian ISIS Group “Caliphate Soldiers” Beheads French Hostage Hervé Gourdel

    As America’s dimwitted leaders like John Kerry continue to claim that climate change is the biggest threat to humanity, blood thirsty Islamic terrorists are having fun proving them wrong.

    French tourist Hervé Gourdel, who was kidnapped in Algeria on Sunday, was beheaded today by Algerian Muslim extremists.

    Mr. Gourdel was reportedly vacationing in Algeria when he was abducted.

    The ISIS affiliated group calling themselves the “Caliphate Soldiers,” posted a video on Monday in which they gave the French government 24 hours to halt its military offensive against ISIS or Gourdel “will be beheaded” they warned.

    The French foreign ministry confirmed the following video’s authenticity and also said that they would not capitulate to the terrorist’s threats.

    “Our security is at stake, but we’re not going to give in to terrorist threats,” he said. “Everything is being done, in close cooperation with the Algerian authorities, to obtain the release of our compatriot. But we must not hide the fact that the situation is extremely critical,” French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said.

    Appearing to make good on their promise, the ISIS-affiliated group has purportedly released a video showing the execution of Hervé Gourdel.


    Here’s more from the Associated Press:

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — French President Francois Hollande has confirmed the killing of a French hostage in Algeria.

    A video released by a U.S. terrorism watchdog showed Algerian extremists allied with the Islamic State group decapitating a hostage after France ignored their demand to stop airstrikes in Iraq.

    The group, which calls itself Jund al-Khilafah, said after abducting Hervé Gourdel on Sunday that he would be killed within 24 hours unless France ended its airstrikes against Islamic State fighters in Iraq.

    The French government has insisted it will not back down.

    Hollande told reporters Wednesday that the hostage was cruelly “assassinated” because he was French and because his country was fighting terrorism and defending human liberty against barbarity.

    He spoke on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly which he is attending.

    “France will continue airstrikes in Iraq “as long as necessary,” French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal reports.

    And in case you were wondering, the climate hasn’t beheaded anyone.

    ISIS beheadings – 3. Warm weather – 0.
