ISIS, having released videos of individual beheadings of Westerners, chose this time to slaughter en masse, including Peter Abdul-Rahman Kassiq as just one of many. The single slaughters didn't create the level of fear the Islamers expected and perhaps were thinking a mass execution would be really scary. It's disgusting, but scary - no. The masked man known as Jihad John, rumored to have been injured in an American weekend bombing raid, took center again to address Obama. "To Obama, the dog of Rome. Today we are slaughtering the soldiers of Bashar and tomorrow we will be slaughtering your soldiers and with Allah’s permission we will break this final and last crusade and the Islamic State will soon, like your puppet David Cameron said, begin to slaughter your people on your streets."

Obama is called "the dog of Rome" in the video. This has a very specific meaning to Muslims who see Western people in two distinct groups harking back to the Crusades. Rome and Romans are called Rum and represent the Roman Catholic Church as it existed in the Eastern Roman Empire centered in Constantinople while the Western Empire also had a Pope. Everyone else in Europe are Franj or French. Americans are Rum for some reason.
ISIS slaughtered 16 Syrian soldiers along with Kassig. The nearly 15 video shows each of the condemned being marched to their execution by uniformed ISIS thugs from various countries. As the thugs control their victims by the collar, they grab a military style fighting knife, and lead them to a place where where a shallow trench has been dug. The victims head's are held over the trench and on a predetermined order, all 16 victim's heads are sawed off at once. The Jihad John character begins his savage act by slicing through the internal jugular vein, drawing the head back, and looks directly at the camera as the blood spurts out into the trench. Then very quickly, he resumes the sawing at the neck, cutting deeply to the spine. Throughout the beastly exhibition, the sounds of the men dying are clearly heard. There are quick snap shots of the line of heads with necks being cut into as so much meat at the butcher's. The trench fills with flowing blood, all the while, heroic music judiciously plays. When the cutting is done, the victim's heads are placed before each body with each executioner towering over them as though awaiting inspection of shined shoes and none showing any emotion at all.
That is what you are about to see in this 3 minute video. It is gruesome, vicious, cold, disturbing, and bloody. If you are in the least squeamish, please, do not watch this video. However, this is one of the few places you will be able to see the face of Allah, so, take a moment to decide.
