Unlike President Obama, King Abdullah II of Jordan did not go out and play 18 holes of golf. The Jordanian army said on Tuesday it would avenge the death of a Jordanian pilot killed by Islamic State militants. And Jordan said it will execute female would-be homicide bomber Sajida Al Rishawi on Wednesday.
Here is the video of the Jordanian pilot being burnt alive. It is very difficult to watch, but this 20 minute film is a slickly produced, war propaganda recruitment video.
The media and political elites censor, scrub and whitewash this war — but it is very real, very deadly. The enemy is growing in leaps and bounds and oceans will not save you.
(Reuters) – The Jordanian army said on Tuesday it would avenge the death of a Jordanian pilot killed by Islamic State militants.
“The revenge will be as big as the calamity that has hit Jordan,” army spokesman Colonel Mamdouh al Ameri said in a televised statement, confirming the death of Mouath al-Kasaesbeh, who was captured by the insurgents in December when his plane crashed over Syria.
Islamic State earlier released a video purporting to show Kasaesbeh being burnt alive.
As I pointed out earlier in this post,
the Islamic State-affiliated twitter accounts had been holding discussions among its Muslim supporters (the .0000000001%), asking for ways to “execute the captured pilot.”
An Arabic Twitter trend started by ISIS — “suggest a way to kill the Jordanian Pilot Pig” has been widely shared among ISIS following. A Vocativ report stated that the hashtag “suggest a way to kill the Jordanian Pilot Pig” has been shared over 1,000 times among ISIS supporters, who enthusiastically have been suggesting several brutal ways to kill the Jordanian pilot.
Some of the ideas shared by the ISIS followers include beheading Moath al-Kassassbeh, burning him alive and making a bulldozer run over his body, it is reported.
An ISIS supporter, who claims to be the mother of a Syrian man killed by a coalition airstrike in a video, suggests that the Jordanian pilot should be “impaled and hung on a pole to so that he dies slowly. And it would be mercy to kill him by gun or a knife.”
On February 3, 2015, the Islamic State (ISIS) media company Al-Furqan released a video showing Mu’adh Al-Kasasibah, the Jordanian pilot held by the group, being burned alive. The video, which is titled “Healing Of The Believers’ Chest,” includes an interview with Al-Kasasibah, who details his mission on December 24, 2014, when he was captured by ISIS. In the video, Al-Kasasibah also notes Jordan and other Arab countries’ role in the coalition campaign against ISIS. The video depicts Al-Kasasibah’s execution, which is supposedly carried out at one of the locations targeted by coalition airstrikes. Al-Kasasibah is burnt alive while being held in a cage, and is then buried by rubble, supposedly coming from the same building destroyed by the coalition. The video also includes a call to Jordanians to kill other Jordanian pilots who are participating in the anti-ISIS coalition.
Al-Kasasibah was captured in December 2014 after his plane crashed in Syria while flying a mission for the anti-ISIS coalition. Shortly thereafter, he appeared in an ISIS interview where he expressed concern for his life. In January 2015, ISIS released two videos showing Muslims who called for Mu’adh’s execution.
The video, which is 22:34 long, was released on the Twitter account @O111492.
The video begins by listing Jordan’s crimes against Islam and Muslim, and its collaboration throughout the years with the West, namely in its fight against Muslims. In that regard, the video notes Jordan’s decision to join the anti-ISIS coalition, and its decision to send a number of its pilots to attack ISIS targets.
The next part of the video includes an interview with Al-Kasasibah, where he details the mission during which he was captured by ISIS. Al-Kasasibah confirms that shortly after entering Al-Raqqa’s air space, his fighter jet sustained a hit by one of the anti-aircraft weapons on the ground, and that he was captured by the mujahideen after falling in a river. Al-Kasasibah moves on to detailing various aspects of his, and other pilots’, work within the coalition campaign against ISIS. He notes, for example, the countries participating in the coalition, naming in particular the Arab countries and their role in attacking ISIS. Al-Kasasibah names the UEA, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain, and Morocco. Al-Kasasibah also notes the name and location of the various airports used in the areal campaign against ISIS.
Al-Kasasibah directs several messages as well. Addressing the Jordanian people, he urges them to question Jordan’s claim of being a defender of Islam, and asks them why Jordan is not bombing the Jews and the Syrian regime instead. “Know that our government is an agent of the Zionists,” he says. Addressing the families of other pilots, he calls upon them not to send their children on missions whose goal is targeting other Muslims. Doing so, Al-Kasasibah says, will ensure that “what happened to me doesn’t happen to your sons.”
The third part of the video depicts ISIS’s punishment for Al-Kasasibah’s crimes. The segment begins by showing the various weapons used by coalition fighter jets, and the damage and causalities they caused. Next, Al-Kasasibah, dressed in orange shirt and pants, is seen walking in an disclosed location with ruins around him. The video hints that the location was one that was targeted by coalition airstrikes. The segment is interspersed with footage of dead people and bodies trapped under building ruins. Al-Kasasibah is also seen surrounded by a number of masked ISIS men. He is then seen standing inside a metal cage awaiting his execution. A masked ISIS man is seen lighting a torch and igniting a path of combustible substance leading to the cage. The next part of the video shows Al-Kasasibah being engulfed in flames. The segment ends when Al-Kasasibah’s scorched body falls on its back. A truck carrying large quantity of rubble is then seen pouring its content over the cage and Al-Kasasibah body.
