Alan HenningÂ thoughtÂ his work for a Muslim charity would save him from the Islamic State. This is one of the fundamental fallacies of the West’s entire approach to the global jihad. Western analysts and policymakers persist in the delusion that their concessions and acts of kindness will meet with reciprocal acts of kindness from Islamic supremacists and jihadists. This is not, in fact, the case. Instead, they’re just seen as signs of weakness, and regarded with contempt.
Another aid worker beheaded
Human beings do not come more depraved than this – to behead people bringing charity:
Mr Henning, a 47-year-old former taxi driver, was captured by militants last December while delivering aid in Syria…
At the end of the video another hostage – a former US soldier – is paraded in front of the cameras.
The hostage is believed to be Peter Edward Kassig who had returned to the region as a charity worker, after serving in Iraq in 2007.
The militant in the video says Mr Kassig will be the next victim.
But remember that Greens leaderÂ Christine Milne has a solution:Â
And everybody recognises that the only way you’ll even get to a solution is to have a political solution both in Iraq and in Syria. Military intervention isn’t going to secure that. If you want to stop ISIL, the first thing you have to do is cut off the supplies getting to them…
Stop knives and aid workers getting to them? And then chat to the Islamic State about their political objectives?
ISIL Message to Davoud Camoron:
“The blood ofÂ David HainesÂ was on your hand, Cameron. Alan Henning will also be slaughtered, but his blood is on the hands of British parliament.”
