Washington - The FBI believes the Islamic State video purporting to show the beheading of American journalist James Foley is authentic, GlobalPost reported on Wednesday.

US authorities had previously said they were trying to verify the contents of the video, which was released on Tuesday.

His mother, Diane Foley, said in a statement late on Tuesday that her son gave his life to expose the suffering of the Syrian people.

Quran 8: 12: "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them" Khalid bin Walid(ra) beheaded 70,000 Persian prisoners of war after the battle of Ullias, its 100% Islaam, in case a munafiq says it isn’t. — Abu Mansoor (@TaifaMansoora) August 19, 2014 Therefore, do not blame IS only, blame the quran too. There simply is no context within which these words of allah can be interpreted differently from the way IS interprets them.

Funny... "His mother, Diane Foley, said in a statement late on Tuesday that her son gave his life to expose the suffering of the Syrian people." He was with the Islamic Brigades when he got captured. The "Moderate Beheaders" that the American Gouverment supplies with weapons and funding. The are enough Videos on the Internet that show these barbaric Animals for what they are. The secular Syrian state is fighting Jihadist but the "western" Media just wanted Assads head. Hypocracy at it's finest! The ISIL is a Danger to every non Sunni muslim... we should eradicate them before it's too late and I'm saying this an atheist. No one believes me? Go to Liveleak(.)com and have fun scrolling through the "Syrian" section and seeing REALITY not something you read in the Media. Beheadings happen every day in Syria and these barbarics film it with pleasure while praising their sky god

2 Groups are responsible for most of the death and destruction on Earth: Politics and Religion.

Can you tell me who is supporting ISIS terrorists in Syria? Americans. Now they reap what they sow.
