Every violent jihadist is a devout Muslim. Up to 200 are thought to be fighting in Syria and Iraq causing heartbreak for those left behind. Only Islam is the right thing.’ And he said, ‘Maybe today or tomorrow I will meet Allah.’ Then he talked to my mother and he said, ‘Just forgive me… Forgive me all I’ve done?” On 25 March Arieta’s brother killed himself and 52 Iraqis in a suicide bombing. “When he was in Kosovo, Blerim said that suicide bombers, they’re not Muslims. But when I talked to him in Syria, and I asked him, ‘Is it good to kill people?’ He said, ‘If they’re not Muslim, yes.‘

Hussein bin Mahmoud invokes Qur’an 47:4: “When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks. Bin Mahmoud wrote that beheading was an effective way to terrorize the enemies of Islam, and stressed that, under Islamic law, Foley was a harbi, i.e. a non-Muslim whose life was not protected by an agreement of protection. He argued further that Islam allows and encourages such acts, since it is a religion of war and fighting. All scholars, without exception, agree on the permissibility of killing a harbi infidel, and agree that his blood and property are fair game. Most of them [also] agree on the permissibility of killing him if he is taken prisoner. So where does this condemnation of the IS come from?… Let it be known to all people that when a harbi enters the land of Islam without a legal pact [of protection], his property, life and progeny are fair game. “Many Muslims are influenced by the West’s false views and its repulsive ideas, which are exported to the Islamic nation in order to weaken it andchange the perception of its youth so that [the youth] become cowardly and subdued and abandon the means of power and terror, and thus create a generation that does not know fighting or the cutting of necks. “Beheading A Harbi Infidel Is A Blessed Act For Which A Muslim Is Rewarded”
“Chopping off the heads of infidels is an act whose permissibility the [Muslim] ummah agrees on. Beheading a harbi infidel is a blessed act for which a Muslim is rewarded. The [only] matter scholars disagree about is the question of transferring the head from one place to another, traveling with it and carrying it around…”
Bin Mahmoud: Jews, Christians, Shi’ites And ‘Alawites Who Committed Crimes Against The Muslims Must Be Beheaded
After clarifying that he is opposed to killing Muslims, bin Mahmoud continues: “As for beheading infidel Jews, Christians and ‘Alawites, as well as apostate Shi’ites, who commit crimes against the Muslims, they must be terrorized, filled with fear and beheaded without any respect. Cutting off heads is part of the tradition of the [Prophet’s] Companions. In the Koran Allah ordered to smite the infidels’ necks and encouraged the Muslims to do this. He said [in Koran 47:4], ‘When you meet those who disbelieve on the battlefield, smite at their necks until you have killed and wounded many of them…Those crusaders fought the Islamic legal concepts, distorted the religion, and convinced the Muslims that their religion is a religion of peace, doves, love and harmony, and that there is no blood in it, no killing and no fighting. The Muslims remained in this state until Allah revived the tradition of beheading by means of the mujahid and slaughterer Abu Mus’ab Al-Zarqawi, may Allah have mercy upon him and accept him as a martyr.”
“Islam Is A Religion Of Bloodshed” Bin Mahmoud goes on to quote a long list of texts which, according to him, prove that Islam condones beheading as a means of terrorizing the enemy, and then emphasizes once more that Islam is not a peaceful religion, since its essence is jihad and martyrdom. He concludes that “Islam is a religion of beheading”:“Islam is a religion of power, fighting, jihad, beheading and bloodshed, not a religion of turning the left cheek to whoever slapped you on the right cheek. On the contrary, it is a religion of breaking the hand that is stretched out to humiliate the Muslim. [Any Muslim] who fights for his property, blood or honor is a martyr.
the goal of its fighters is to die for the sake of their religion…”

‘Vacation’ is a relative term for Obama and Cameron, especially with Foley execution:

journalist’s family and angrily denounced Islamic State militants the following day. Then he went off for a round of golf — his seventh in 10 days. It wasn’t the first time this month that Obama has made a quick pivot from grim news to the green. Last week, the president was confronted by rising unrest in Ferguson, Mo., and upheaval in Iraq. After delivering a solemn statement on both crises, he hit the golf course just four minutes after leaving the lectern. “Wherever I am in the world I am always within a few feet of a BlackBerry, and an ability to manage things should they need to be managed,” he said. But Cameron promised to return if the situation called for it.
And so both leaders may envy Russian President Vladimir Putin. Like Obama, Putin travels with a significant group of staff from the Kremlin, often 80 or more people. But members of the press are strictly forbidden. Putin’s favorite summer vacation spot is Tuva, a wild territory on the border with Mongolia in southern Siberia. It’s in Tuva that Putin has been snapped half-naked, hunting and riding — a somewhat different image from a golfing president or a sunbathing prime minister. For entertainment, Putin enjoys local Tuvan throat singers. The singers are helicoptered in from local villages to perform for Putin and his companions in the evening. But while the Russian leader may travel with an entourage, the president of the United States rolls far deeper. Obama essentially takes the White House with him wherever he goes — along with a press pool, a phalanx of staffers, a motorcade of more than 40 vehicles, and crisis-ready communication apparatus.
When he goes anywhere, be it a day trip or a vacation, “the infrastructure follows him.”
