What a bloody mess! I do hope this Goto san is ok, but if I were a terrorist, I would keep him around and ALIVE for NEGOTIATING purposes, get that woman with the funny beedy eyes out of that Jordanian prison and have that pilot back in Jordan, but make sure to keep Goto Kenji around and maybe some silly super RICH Japanese guy would send a few BILLION $$$ over to ISIS, but I am NOT a terrorist, so I really do not know what they are thinking.

America is not run by the Taliban, maybe close call would be the so called Tea Party but, if Muslims in the USA feel scared or threatened by this movie, the propaganda spewing out of FOX NEWS etc...we should all be worried, not only Muslims in the USA.

No J, it is because most JTers are more worried about the 2 J guys in Arabia, but what a mess in Nigeria and Boko Haram are just another religion for PEACE???

The USA will NEVER learn! Sure many CUBANS are not happy with their socialist CUBAN government but it is THEIR government not some part of the USA! Cuba is not PUERTO RICO! CUBA is not Florida, but the IGNORANT and ARROGANT USA thinks everyone wants to be just like the USA, which is a MYTH!! Who do CUBANS want to run their country, FELLOW CUBANS or some arrogant fools from Washington DC?? Even AMERICANS do not want the crap from DC to tell them what to do, and here we have ignorant and ARROGANT Americans trying to tell the rest of the world how to run their own lives when the USA can not even feed all of their people or keep shooting dead any African Americans by white US police officers. Just because CUBA says they want to have better relations with the USA, does NOT mean they are just gonna bend over and take it up the wazoo by the USA for anything and everything the USA feels like doing with CUBA.

@Yuri, what has CUBA done to piss off the USA so badly?? Well, for starters they kicked out all Americans, took over all the factories etc...owned by NON Cubans, oh..yes, Fidel Castro wanted to show the USA and the world he was not your average Banana Republic dictator so he got RUSSIAN MISSILES, not only pointing them at Miami but up all the way to Washington DC and New York City, sparking the CUBAN MISSILE CRISIS and almost the start of WORLD WAR 3 back around 1963 and the list goes on and on and on...

Well, I hope France can at least ADMIT it has a problem of not being to assimilate its Arab and African Muslim immigrants into the mainstream French society. (I do not know if it is possible, but as Zaphod points out) cracking down on RADICAL preachers, spreading hate, venom, from the pulpits sure does sound like a good start. Not too sure if these zone urbaine speciale are just Fox News Lies, I have heard the same complaints from not only French but also from English and German folk too.

My guess, once the news that these 2 Japanese hostages have killed, we will see attacks against Muslims, mosques etc..here in Japan too. It will not be the first time that a Japanese backlash against Muslims happens here in Japan.

War is NOT PRETTY folks, people kill, snipers etc..this is what war is about. Why all of the surprise?? Kill from far away or kill in hand to hand combat or kill using drones, or etc..if this movie was about NINJAS would Americans be more accepting as compared to this guy on some roof top or waiting behind some bushes etc..?? Is it less HONORABLE?? Killing is killing folks.
