“Abdul-Rahman was taken from us in an act of pristine immorality by a belligerent organisation that a universe righteously associates with inhumanity,” Obama said.

The rarely choreographed video, that a White House reliable was authentic, shows a masked belligerent with a British accent saying: “This is Peter Edward Kassig, a U.S. citizen of your country. Peter, who fought opposite a Muslims in Iraq while portion as a infantryman underneath a American army, doesn’t have most to say.”

Our heart also goes out to a families of a Syrians who mislaid their lives, along with a son.”

Kassig’s family had appealed to a Islamic State not to kill their son. The family also has attempted to lean a organisation with a steady statements about his acclimatisation to Islam.

His family pronounced Kassig, who was lifted in Indiana, converted to Islam final year while pity a dungeon with a righteous Syrian Muslim. The family pronounced a acclimatisation routine started before he was taken hostage.

Secretary of State John Kerry pronounced in a created matter that Kassig “was a immature American who personified a values of altruism and care that are a really hint of his adopted sacrament of Islam.”

Before he was killed, Kassig’s family expelled a minute he had created progressing this year that a liberated warrant had brought with him. The family also perceived an audio recording of their son before a Islamic State suggested that it was holding him hostage.

“I am apparently flattering frightened to die, though a hardest partial is not knowing, wondering, anticipating and wondering if we should even wish during all,” Kassig wrote. “I am really unhappy that all this has happened and for what all of we behind home are going through. If we do die, we figure that during slightest we and we can find retreat and comfort in meaningful that we went out as a outcome of perplexing to assuage pang and assisting those in need.”
