British Hostage Alan Henning Beheaded by Islamic State (ISIS)

British cab driver Alan Henning traveled to Syria to help the impoverished victims of the civil war. In return for his selfless generosity, he was kidnapped and beheaded.

Western governments, as usual, will respond by defending Islam against criticism.

(CNN)—A short video released by ISIS on Friday shows the apparent beheading of British aid worker Alan Henning. In the same video, the terror group threatened the life of an American aid worker.

A taxi driver from near Manchester, England, Alan Henning was part of a team of volunteers that traveled to Syria in December 2013 to deliver food and water to people affected by the Middle Eastern country's devastating civil war.

He was abducted the day after Christmas by masked gunmen, according to other people in the aid convoy. Last week, the British Foreign Office released an audio file of Henning pleading for his life. His wife made a public plea for ISIS to spare his life.

Barbara Henning's pleas were joined by voices of Muslim leaders around the world.

They included Shaykh Haitham Al Haddad, a judge on the Shariah Council in London, who has said that "whatever your grievance with American or British foreign policy, executing this man is not the answer."

But the calls for mercy appear to have been met with bloodshed. If the authenticity of the video is confirmed, Henning will be the fourth Westerner to be beheaded on camera by ISIS. (Continue Reading.)
To understand the Islamic State's treatment of non-Muslims, watch this:

Another foolish westerner learns first hand and the hard way about Islam.

Hi David,

seeing all this degradation in society and irreligion taking place of religion and passing it on as only genuine religion is certainly a dark ignorance accepted by modern day muslims and others.

David i wanted to reach out to you and the only way i know so far is through these comment sections. Seeing so much bloodshed simply on the so called name of religion has not only created a fearful situation but also filled the heart and minds of anxiety of most of human alike.

I have been reading this book which is very authentic (this can be argued but once you read it you will know the facts, it won't be difficult for a person of great intellect like yourself). If you get some time please read this book and this would also give you a wider perspective of such incidents and how these can be dealt. I do have a copy of it in case you need it just drop me a like at

hope this meets you in good health.

Islam is mainly politics for governing people mixed with religion, like Quran, Allah, Muhammad, heaven with sex for enjoyment used as carrot and hell for fear used as stick and finally death penalty for leaving Islam, like leaving a drug gang.

Muhammad was a businessman, he knew how to be rich marrying a rich women Kodeja and finally became an autocrat leader. Wisdom and reasons does not work with Muslims. Muhammad destroyed sixth sense of humanity for Muslim people by legalizing beheading for criticizing and leaving Islam.

I don't think he was foolish. I think he was deceived. He was deceived by my government (UK) and yours (US?). Lies cost lives. The BIG LIE trotted out by the UK and US governments?: Islam is a religion of peace.

Many people swallow the propaganda spewed out by our elected representative. Many people have and will die because of it. I hope they will receive justice.
