Peter Kassing Death: ISIS released a new video, Obama sentenced the killing

The Islamic State militants released a video on Sunday which shows that the head of an American aid worker Peter Kassig at the feet ISIS militant. Peter Kassing was caught last year at a checkpoint in northeastern Syria while delivering medical supplies.

President Obama confirmed his death and said in a statement Mr. Kassig “was taken from us in an act of pure evil by a terrorist group.” The President was the first person who officially confirmed his death. 

Peter refused to read the Jihadist speech that was prepared and suggested by his captors before they killed Kassing. After converting to Islam, Peter changed his name to Abdul-Rahman. When death of the British aid worker Alan Henning confirmed this was appeared on the last tape on 3 October showed that Mr. Kassig was next in line.   

Each video shows that the murder of one hostage and announce the next in line. The world had already learnt from the killing of US journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff and a British aid worker, David Haine. 

The clip shows the head of 26 year old Peter kassing at the feet of a man with a British accent who has already appeared in previous videos and has nicknamed Jihadi John by the British news media. 

In the video, the militant says: 'This is Peter Edward Kassig, a U.S. citizen of your country. Peter, who fought against the Muslims in Iraq while serving as a soldier under the American army, doesn't have much to say. His previous cell mates have already spoken on his behalf. 
'But we say to you Obama ... you claim to have withdrawn from Iraq four years ago. We said to you then that you are liars, that you have not withdrawn and that if you had withdrawn that you would return, even if after some time.

President paid tribute today to Kassing and used the Muslim name Abdul-Rahman. Our prayers and condolence are with Peter’ parents who plea to ISIS for son’s return.
