Jordan has vowed that it will exact “punishment and revenge” against the Islamic State terrorist organization after a gruesome video was posted online apparently showing a captured pilot from the Hashemite Kingdom’s airforce being burned alive.

The video shows a man standing in a cage being engulfed in flames. Jordanian officials fear the man is Lt. Moaz al-Kasasbeh, who was captured when his plane came down near Raqqa, Syria, in December on a mission to support the US-led military coalition against IS.

The video posted online on Tuesday was distributed via a Twitter account known as a source for IS propaganda, the BBC reported.

The slickly produced 22-minute video includes a sequence showing the Jordanian pilot walking at gunpoint amongst rubble apparently caused by coalition air strikes that targeted jihadists.

At a tribal meeting place where the pilot’s relatives have waited for weeks for word on his fate, chants against Jordan’s King Abdullah II erupted and some family members wept, AP reported. An uncle shouted in Arabic: “I received a phone call from the chief of staff saying God bless his soul.”

Hundreds of protesters later took to the streets, chanting: “There is no god but God and the martyr is beloved by God.”

The video appeared aimed at pressuring Jordan to leave the coalition that has been battling to roll back the Islamic State’s onslaught through Syria and Iraq.

The video showing a man identified as Lt al-Kasasbeh can be viewed by clicking here; please note that the images are extremely disturbing.

    Yet another act of terror, designed to terrorise. No doubt ISIS regards any Muslim who fights against them to be a “hypocrite”, who is therefore an apostate and under sharia can, and should, be killed “without retribution”. No doubt we’ll once again have Western leaders blithely ignoring the teachings in the Qur’an and the Hadith that are motivating the Jihadist groups, declaring yet again that this is “a distortion of a great religion”, and ignoring the lack of real condemnation by “moderate” Muslims, who know that they cannot argue with those teachings. The “War on Terror” is meaningless. Terrorism is a tactic. Governments do not go to war against a tactic, it goes to war against an ideology. The Blitzkrieg was a tactic. The Allies did not go to war against the Blitzkrieg, they went to war against nazism and, later on, communism. A German scholar of Islamic studies has observed: This culture [Islam]is based on the “enemy” principle.:the culture can only exist as long as enemies exist, and it can live only as long as it can kill.” Q. 8.12 “God revealed His will to the angels, saying: “I shall be with you. Give courage to the believers. I shall cast terror into the hearts of the infidels. Strike off their heads, strike off the very tips of their fingers!”

  • All it takes to stop these animals is for the world to say enough! Then back up their words and exterminate these vermin cockroaches down to the last man. If America had a president with any balls at all this barbarism could be stopped in a single day. One can only hope Jordan’s king will do what Obama won’t do. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

    I am not a prophet
    but I interprete what I see according to my level of knowledge by interpreting our TORAH in the following way.

    “MEASURE FOR MEASURE” HASHEMS messege to the world.
    Harm Israel ‘my’ first born special people and be harmed.

    2000 years to this very hour the xtians have tortured killed destroyed AND NOW ATTEMPT TO CONVERT US
    ‘The Nation of Israel’

    4000 years the children of ishamel have tortured killed destroyed us ‘The Nation of Israel’
    NOW THEY tortured killed destroyed EACH OTHER.

    I call that a sign to us to make teshuvah as best we can.
    HASHEM is sending us ‘HIS’ messege.

    Its time to realize there are NOT such things as reform conservative modern ortho black hats hasid etc etc etc.

    HASHEM GAVE US ‘ONE SET OF LAWS (oral and written)
    ‘TO LEARN THEM’ as best as we can.

    NOT to add to them as the black hats,
    NOT to subtract from them as the conservative/reform

    Maybe if some continue to separate themselves in that fashion then …just maybe…
    YOU will also BE separated from the highest levels of GAN EDEN.Maybe at techeyat hameyteem you will see us and regret acting in the way you did.


    ONE G-D

    Danial 11:41….but these shall escape from his hand: Edom, Moab, and the prominent people of Ammon. It seems that what IsIs has done is so atrocious it unites these tribes to war against his evil forces and survive the onslaught of the anti christ. Christian tradition has taught for centuries that Israel will find a safe haven amoungst these tribes for a portion of the religious remnant of Israel. This is very disturbing I hope and pray that Zachariah’s 14:2 prophesy is not about to become a reality. Let’s say if the liberals get control of Israel their could be hand to hand combat with your enemy and amoungst yourselves. A house divided will be very difficult to survive in perilous and treacherous times.

    Islamic love of killing is not sufficient for Islam. The murder must be accompanied by intense, prolonged suffering of the victim.

    This applies not only to human victims but to animals as well.

    Watch some videos of ritual halal slaughter, the horrible way cattle and pigs brutalized as they are put to death and how they are made to suffer before they die.

    Observe the glee of the ritual killers and listen to the screams of the victims as they slowly, agonizingly die.

  • Lauren Goldman

    This is an appropriate segue into suggesting the massive use of napalm on ISIS. Bullets and explosive weaponry requires placing troops in the proximity of their targets, putting them in harm’s way. There are few hiding places that napalm cannot turn into a funeral pyre. The only downside is that the stench of burnt pig’s flesh will linger for a bit; a small price for positive results.

  • Markus E Brajtman

    This may sound crazy, but it is now time for Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia to put their difference away and form a united military force to attack and destroy the most evil organisation in the world.
    There is no time to waste.

  • Mickey Oberman

    The death of a trained fighter pilot in exchange for an uneducated woman is hardly revenge, It is not even tit for tat or an eye for an eye.

    I guess Jordan loses this round. What a pathetic start.

  • Michael Fox

    There simply are no words in the dictionary to describe the barbarity of these depraved “humans.” These actions committed with Allah on their lips are grotesque. They will answer for their crimes against humanity. The fact that this insane blood thirsty behavior excites and motivates recruitment is a testament to the sick pathology infecting these psychotic zombies.

    Sorry President Obama, these butchers ARE Islamic extremists.

  • Fred

    Again the cruelty of Islamic extremism shows its face. Yet, Obama’s weak mealy mouth excuse for a condemnation makes ones skin crawl. To Obama a spade is but a spoon.

  • art

    Why are they so blinded that they blame the King rather than ISIS ISIS not only murdered the pilot but did it in a horrible way. The Jordanians should be demanding retribution from isis. Why isn’t there a special UN meeting? Why won’t Obama admit that isis is muslim, will he ever stop denying reality?

  • Sofia Bain

    It is unfortunate that these monster’s propaganda is shown on computer screens – it would be better if these were blocked, so as not to give them a forum, to those butchers.
    They love every minute of it
    What’s next, a crucifiction?

    Perhaps the world will see the brutality of these monsters and not always blame Israel for all the woes.

    G-d bless Israel and keep her safe.

    A man burned alive – all in the name of their lying Satanic ‘religion of peace’

    How much more will be required for people to realize that these fundamental followers of Mohammedanism {aka Islam}, are actually following Satan??????
    They worship and obey the false devil ‘moon-god Allah’ and his lying prophet for profit Mohammed – which is resulting in such absolute barbarism, viciousness, sheer malevolency of evil, and depraved wickedness!!!!!!

    “The word of the LORD” warns us about these times in which we are living, for “the Lord Jesus Christ” personally told His disciples in Luke 17:1-2 [KJB]:
    “It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.”

    And in Isaiah 5:20-21 [KJB]:
    “Woe unto them that call EVIL good, and good EVIL; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
    Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!”

    “And GOD saw that the WICKEDNESS of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”
    (Gen 6:5 [KJB])

    “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately WICKED: who can know it?”
    (Jer 17:9 [KJB])

    “The WICKED walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.”
    (Ps 12:8 [KJB])

    “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the WICKED beareth rule, the people mourn.”
    (Prov 29:2 [KJB])

    Me thinks that the whole world is evermore rapidly becoming exponentially more and more WICKED:
    “And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
    Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.”
    (Luke 17:26-29 [KJB])

  • Bernard Ross

    no video, taken down, you should remove the link and headline

  • How can I replyand not break every rule in the book about protocol, good manners, house rules, Islamaphobia, you name and it has been displayed by these animals, these ‘deseased droppings from a dead vultures crotch ‘ un quote I don’t know the I replied after all,to what end ? Until we an out-dothis filth in its own sickness,!!!!!!they will win, and if we sink to their level, ? How are we then better .

  • History seems to be cyclical at times, repeating itself in different scenarios in time. – Are we on the verge of another “Crusade”? If a coalition punitive force is formed to eliminate Daesh or “IS”, then you will understand my point.
    Only a ground operation against these animals who execute their own people “for watching a soccer game”, has to be realized. Using that Chinese formula of the “Art of War”,in which it advises; “If your enemy is tempérmental (irate)taunt him”. – By doing so, their outrage would be so great that it blinds reason or logic. Charlie Hebdo was right in mocking them. Let us use the “pen” as a weapon.

  • Rabbi M. Friedman

    You should see from time time mobs of Arabs in Jordan vilolently demo agaist Israel. No TEARES for them!!!
    They ccupy are Biblical lands Kingdom of Joerdan was created by the British imperialists.

  • To posit we are fighting a “war” against Islamic terrorism is nonsense.

    The purpose of war is to take the heart out of the enemy by striking his strategic assets, his leaders, high-tech control networks, and any major weapons systems. Wiping out his cities and populations has long been a strategy that takes the fight out of enemies, endangers leaders and keeps them looking back over their shoulders. Our blood and treasure has been directed against their ignorant foot-soldiers and relatively small arms caches. The question which demands an answer is, why do we spend $millions to wipe out penny ante soldier-leaders and their cheap weapons?

    We have embarked upon this course because our leaders fear losing political power in a government “system” they have learned to master. Thus, the military action they chose is just enough to show they are “trying”. The real motivation is to be “politically correct”, thus, maintaining the status quo and position of power in a Big Government which allows people large compensation, benefits, and privileges. These leaders who are only concerned with political agendas need to be dumped for leaders who know how to totally destroy an enemy.

    Fear and greed are two of the greatest motivators which control man who is driven by survival genes that brought him thru long hardships on the planet. Terrorists are following the ages-old techniques of earliest “primitives”. By being viciously cruel and savage, they inspire disabling fear in any surviving competitor. The terrorist’s greed for power and privilege is easily directed back to his savage nature. Fear is removed in him by the false religious leader-driven conviction that there is honor and reward in killing innocents, and dying for Islam.

    Since there are few strategic physical assets or major control networks, we have to attack what’s left, the terror driving leadership. We attack the secular leaders, but fear that attacking the source of religious terror, in the mosques, will paint our leaders as savages, not the elite image they want. They “fear” to fight positively.

    The easiest and most effective strategy would be to induce great fear in their religious leaders of them losing their power and lives. If a force of unknown origin focused on the quiet disappearance of the most vocal and incendiary clerics that incite terrorism, there would not be foot soldiers to carry out the hate and terror. To quote Sun Tzu in The Art of War, “The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting”. Thus, if you cut off the many heads of the terrorist groups, there would be no terrorist groups to wage a war against.

    Just think about a better target and let us know.

    P.S. The best strategy against a snake is to crush its head!

    Can We Unmask Islam’s Ideology as false?
