French Tourist Beheaded by ISIS Affiliate in Algeria

Herve Gourdel is now the fourth Westerner to be beheaded in recent weeks.

Unlike American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff and British aid worker David Haines who were beheaded by an ISIS member with a British accent and has been dubbed Jihad John, Gourdel was kidnapped on Sunday while hiking in the mountains of northern Algeria by Jund al-Khilafah, an Algerian affiliate of ISIS. France has participated in airstrikes against ISIS in Iraq. Gourdel was mountaineering guide from Nice, France.

What worries me is that the more this happens, the more people will be desensitized to it. To paraphrase Joe Stalin, one beheading is a tragedy, a hundred is a statistic.

That is, unless, ISIS and their affiliates start beheading people on the streets of America.
