According to the Jerusalem Post, ISIS posted pictures to its website purporting to show the Jordanian pilot who was captured by the group in December being burned alive.
Apparently the pilot was led into a cage, with his clothing soaked in gasoline. I suppose to these savages, beheading is “too humane.”
“Jordan had been making efforts to free the pilot in a prisoner swap. The Hashemite Kingdom said on Sunday it was still ready to hand over a jailed Iraqi militant to Islamic State in a swap deal if the captured Jordanian pilot was released, even after a second Japanese hostage was beheaded.”
Earlier this week, we had reported that Jordan threatened to execute Sajida al-Rishawi and other jailed ISIS commanders would be ‘quickly judged and sentenced’ in revenge for Muath al-Kaseasbeh’s death. We’ll see if they hold fast to their threats.
But apparently negotiation is not something ISIS is very interested in. They understand only one thing: deadly force.
What a tragedy that the nation with the deadliest force on the planet is led by someone who has no will to use it against evil.
