Islamic State, the extremist Sunni jihadist organization that has taken over swaths of Syria and Iraq in recent months, continues to wage propaganda warfare alongside its terrorist activities on the ground.

In a new cartoon video uploaded to ISIS-friendly social media accounts, an ISIS man is seen beheading US President Barack Obama. The video was posted and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

ISIS has shocked the world with video clips of its henchmen beheading Western and Arab hostages deemed unfriendly to their cause of establishing a caliphate in the Middle East based on an austere form of Islam.

In the video, a character based on the real-life "Jihadi John" is about to execute a whimpering Obama,  "the mule of the Jews."
