September 18, 2014  800 Australian police thwart ISIL beheading plot   USA Today  Police said they thwarted a plot to carry out beheadings in Australia by supporters of the radical Islamic State group by detaining 15 people and raiding more than a dozen properties across Sydney on Thursday.  More than 800 Australian officers raided dozens of properties in the suburbs of Sydney on Thursday, in an operation to thwart an apparent Islamic State terror plot to carry out random attacks on the public, police said. Prime Minister Tony Abbott confirmed to reporters that a senior group leader in the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, was calling on supporters to carry out beheadings. But professor of International Relations and Security Studies at Murdoch University Samuel Makinda sees no ISIS threat to Australia or other nations outside the Middle East while Muslims in the Sydney suburb of Lakemba protested the raids.

June 2004


Paul Marshall Johnson, Jr. - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia  "Paul Johnson, U.S. Worker Kidnapped in Saudi Arabia, Beheaded". Bloomberg. June 18,  004. ^ "Saudi says five most-wanted militants killed in protracted ...  Paul Marshall Johnson, Jr. (May 8, 1955 – c. June 18, 2004) was an American helicopter engineer who lived in Saudi Arabia. He was a native of both Stafford and Eagleswood, New Jersey. In 2004, he was taken hostage by militants and his execution was recorded on video tape.
Johnson, who worked for Lockheed Martin on upgrading Saudi AH-64A Apache attack helicopters,[1] was stopped at a fake police checkpoint near Riyadh June 12, 2004 and then abducted.[2] His kidnappers called themselves Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.[3] The group, headed by Abdel Aziz al-Muqrin, posted a video of a blindfolded Johnson on an Islamist website on June 15, 2004 and threatened to kill him unless all al-Qaeda prisoners were released from Saudi jails within 72 hours.[4]
Johnson's abduction came during increased violence against foreigners in Saudi Arabia. The previous week, BBC journalists Frank Gardner and Simon Cumbers had been shot, and two other Americans had also been shot in Riyadh. Sultan Al Haseri, who was later to be listed on Saudi Arabia's list of most wanted terrorist suspects, who was killed in a shootout in July 2005, was later to be described as taking a role in Johnson's kidnapping and murder.[5]

Videotaped killing[edit]
At 17h30 UTC on June 18, Al-Arabiya and CNN reported that Johnson had been decapitated. This report is based on three photographs of the murder posted on the Internet. Saudi officials initially claimed to have discovered Johnson's body near Riyadh later that day, but on June 19 those claims were withdrawn. The Saudi government withheld official proclamation of Johnson's death until the body was found. In the murder video, after making the statements, the next shot is the execution already in progress. He is lying on a bed with what appears to be three men holding him down as one militant severs his head. Unlike the Nick Berg and Eugene Armstrong videos, there is no screaming. The video was also similar to that of Daniel Pearl, who was killed in Pakistan in 2002, and Kim Sun-il, a South Korean who was killed in Iraq during the same month not long after Johnson was killed in Saudi Arabia. On July 21, 2004, Saudi security officials found Johnson's head in a refrigerator in a villa in Riyadh.[7]
