Will the beheading video be fake too? As of this writing ISIS claims to have killed them but no confirmation yet. via Experts say ISIS ransom clip faked as deadline for Japanese hostages passes | Fox News.
The hostage video showing the hostages wearing orange jump suits and kneeling before a masked, black-clad jihadist may have been faked, experts said. New analysis of the video appears to reveal the message was shot indoors using a “green screen,” and a phony backdrop, according to Veryan Khan, editorial director for the Terrorism Research and Analysis Consortium. She told The Associated Press the light source on the men in the latest videos appears to be coming from two different directions — as opposed to one bright sun, and said if the video was made outdoors in natural light, the shadows behind them should be going in one direction. Instead, they converge.
“The hostages are visibly bothered by” the bright light, she said.
Although one of the hostage’s jumpsuits flutters in a breeze, Khan said she believes a fan caused the movement and noted that wind in the desert would be noisy and affect the sound quality of the statements being made by the knife-wielding man. It would also kick up dust, and none seems apparent, she said.
“Time is running out. Please, Japanese government, save my son’s life,” said Junko Ishido, the mother of 47-year-old journalist Kenji Goto.
“My son is not an enemy of the Islamic State,” she said in a tearful appearance in Tokyo.
Ishido said she was astonished and angered to learn from her daughter-in-law that Goto had left less than two weeks after his child was born, in October, to go to Syria to try to rescue the other hostage, 42-year-old Haruna Yukawa.
“My son felt he had to do everything in his power to try to rescue a friend and acquaintance,” she said.
What power did he feel he had? Well, Shoebat.com reports what no other media will: The Japanese Man Who Got Captured By ISIS Is a Confirmed Muslim Jihadist
One of the hostages is Haruna Yukawa, his first name is not Haruna but Harukana Yukawa and his Facebook shows him handling an AK47 quite well. Harukana twisted his name to an Islamic name Harun, a common Muslim name. His conversion to Islam became obvious once we investigated Haruna communications and relations on his Facebook in which he had a love relationship with a Jihadi operative named Abu Tamim Al-Mari’i from Jabha Islamiyah of Sham (Islamic Front of the Levant). One of Yukawa favorite links is also Jabha Islamiyah (Islamic Front) on his Facebook which the link has posted a Jihadist logo that states “Islam is our pride and we will shatter your democracy”.
In one post Yukawa messages his boyfriend Abu Tamim in classical Arabic, “ana aydan bahibbak” (I love you too). This love relationship with Al-Mari’i will disclose even more truths behind Yukawa.
The Arabic reveals more than just a love relationship, in one post Abu Tamim Al-Mari’i receives a message from Yukawa “I’ve been captured by Al-Qaeda Al-Baghdadi …” which Abu Tamim Al-Mari’i posts and comments on it saying: “Haruna Yukawa
Abu-Mujahid in Islam is now captive with ISIS”. Abu Tamim reveals that his boyfriend, Yukawa, is Muslim convert code named Abu Mujahid, (Arabic: father of Jihad) “in Islam” which signifies he is not only a Muslim, but a Jihadist, yet the media tells us that Yukawa was only “the chief executive of Private Military Company”.
The Islamic Front which Yukawa and Tamim belonged to is a Jihadi group working to establish an Islamic State run Caliphate in Syria and Iraq that differs from ISIS. Yukawa is not the only Japanese who joined the Jihadist groups. There are also other Japanese serving with Jabha Islamiyah of Sham (Islamic Front of the Levant) whom Yukawa likes:
