Re "Video depicts beheading of second American journalist" (, Sept. 3): By any reasonable standard, the recent beheadings of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff are crimes against humanity. It is time the United Nations pushes back with all its might against ISIS and the state leaders who harbor these despicable terrorists.

If state leaders understand they will someday be held accountable for their actions -- and suffer the same fate as Foley and Sotloff -- I am sure they will turn their backs on the cowardly jihadists.
