Little over a week after the gruesome video showing the beheading of American journalist James Foley was posted on to YouTube, another symbolic video has started making the rounds of the Internet. While the video doesn’t show anyone being killed, there’s no doubt about the fact that this one is equally disturbing to watch. The video shows a little girl holding a doll and then later beheading the same while singing praises to Allah.
The video was initially posted to video sharing site LiveLeak and has since then been posted on to YouTube.
What is even more sickening about the video is that it apparently mocks the beheading of James Foley. Like Foley, the doll too is seen wearing an orange jumpsuit. The doll is then laid to the ground after which the girl simply beheads it without flinching. At this moment it’s still unclear if this is a propaganda video by ISIS, or simply the work of a deranged mind who created this simply for fun.
Meanwhile, the debate over the authenticity of the video of the beheading of James Foley rages on. While most investigators are sure that James Foley has been killed, they are not quite convinced by the video showing his beheading. They also have Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary as the main suspect who is thought to have killed Foley.
As the ISIS continues its bloody violence against anyone who do not conform to their beliefs and rules, there has been increasing appeal from the international community calling for military action against them. The U.S. did respond to the appeal and ordered limited air strikes against them. However, there is no denying the fact that a few air strikes will not damage the ISIS in a significant way.
