Jordanian pilot captured by ISIS burned alive (UPDATE: Jordan executes Jihadists)
Moath al-Ksasbah executed, what will Jordan do?
Jordanian pilot Moath al-Ksasbah was captured by ISIS after his plane either had technical problems or was shot down.
Jordan was unable to secure his release, as negotiations over releasing an ISIS suicide bomber held in Jordan in exchange broke down when ISIS could not offer proof the pilot was still live.
Jordan reportedly threatened to execute every ISIS prisoner it holds if the pilot were not released.
ISIS now has released a video showing the pilot being burned alive (we will not link to video).

This comes just days after ISIS reportedly executed a second Japanese hostage.
The Jordan Times confirms the death and says it took place on January 3.

UPDATE No. 2 (h/t Hot Air)
Jordan to execute jailed would-be bomber, jihadists:
Jordan will execute Wednesday an Iraqi would-be suicide bomber on death row and other jihadists after having vowed to avenge the murder of a Jordanian pilot by Islamic State jihadists, an official said.
“The sentence of death pending on… Iraqi Sajida al-Rishawi will be carried out at dawn,” the security official said on Tuesday, speaking on condition of anonymity.
Rishawi, the would-be bomber, was condemned to death for her participation in deadly attacks in Amman in 2005, and IS had offered to spare the life of the Jordanian fighter pilot, Lieutenant Maaz al-Kassasbeh, if she were released.
“The death sentence will be carried out on a group of jihadists, starting with Rishawi, as well as Iraqi Al-Qaeda operative Ziad Karbuli and others who attacked Jordan’s interests,” the security source said.
“Jordan’s response will be earth-shattering,” Information Minister Mohammed Momani said earlier on television, while the army and government vowed to avenge the pilot’s murder.

What part of Islamic Terror does Obama not understand?
He understands it perfectly. Nothing he does is without weighing political implications.
Jordan needs to make good on its threat.
I’m pretty sure Jordan will make good on their threat. Obama is a disgrace on the world stage, causing America to look like we’ve abandoned those in need.
When no one stands up to Evil, Evil wins. Period.
If I’m Jordan, then it’s no quarter will be given, none will be expected.
Also, Darth Sidious would like a word.
ISIS raised the black flag of “no quarter”, so they should be given none.
A hadith of Bukhari speaks of the “prophet” ordering that people who had not attended a prayer were to be burned in their homes (http://www.quranexplorer.com/hadith/english/Hadith/bukhari/001.011.626.html).
But… did Mohammed ever have prisoner killed in this way?
Maybe the event didn’t happen, as it sounds as if the folks who say “nothing to do with Islam” might be somewhat correct in this case.
Am interested in knowing the truth.
If Mohammed actually ordered people to be burned to death and their houses burned as well for missing a prayer service, he was a barbaric monster. And Muslims who rationalize the behavior of killer Islamist terrorists who follow his teachings, should be brutalized in return.
The Jordanian Air Force should retaliate for the death of their pilot with high-intensity fire-bombing raids on 50 or 100 ISIS targets. Burn baby burn!
Their self-styled “capitol” of Raqqa would be a good place to start.
I’m going to be on topic with an off topic comment that drives this home.
I’m currently re-reading (audio book) of Isaac’s Army about the Jewish resistance in Warsaw. It’s incredible. I’ll listen to it 10 more times. There is a tidal wave of striking things in this book about evil and standing up to it.
Among the top elements is the irresponsible level of denial of the enemy by leaders. I’m at the part where they discover the mass graves as reported by the slaves who were forced to dig the graves and they are denying it. They had multiple reports, from multiple places and they still refused to believe it.
Here they are;
They had faced pograms dozens of times in the past 100 years.
Anti Semitism was rampant through out Europe and the Soviet block.
They had laws discriminating against them.
They had laws where by gentiles helping them was punishable by death.
They had propaganda posters and films depicting them as monsters.
Their homes and businesses were stolen by the German occupiers.
They were put into a ghetto and escape is instant execution.
Their food has been cut off and rationed to 150 calories per day.
Germans are coming in and taking forced labor slaves weekly who seldom return.
Yet their leaders were sitting there hearing about these massive executions and graves saying they can’t possibly intend to kill us all….they don’t have enough trucks to produce that much carbon monoxide! They were still dismissing Hitler as some mad barking dog.
In 2015—- how it is we don’t put a jdam on every one of these devils yelling death to the infidel is a defect in our existence. In 2015, the fact that we have not read history and declared that globally, words (and actions) have consequences is beyond me.
Apparently someone else has declared drawing cartoons has consequences and so Europe has cracked down on cartoons and content that might offend the mad barking dog. It seems to me, we are the all sitting in a Warsaw ghetto denying the existence and spread of this evil.
There are surely some psychological warfare studies that have explained this behavior. And those studies have surely been used by our adversaries as they took over Hollywood and the MSM, as psych warfare has been waged against the American public for decades.
It is no accident that Jarrett’s father and Obama’s mentor (Frank Davis) were communist friends, along with so many other “activists” from the 60’s. Hanoi Jane and other commie sympathizers are part of the army of useful idiots, and we should question the roots of so many of these anti-America organizations that actively demonize traditional (strong) America.
The 100 million or so that communist states have murdered off in gulags or Chinese camps should not be forgotten either.
But don’t call them savages because MSNBC says that’s racist.
Ah, maybe it would be interesting to have IS fighters captured subjected to being guarded by a Women’s Brigade of the Jordanian Army.
Maybe also allow them to use Israeli supplied ammo when executing these IS bastards. Doubt that any such firing squad would accept using ammo greased with pig fat; pity!
ISIS has already told us that killing them (making them “martyrs” in the process) serves as a great recruitment tool. As a friend suggested, Jordan killing those prisoners is exactly what ISIS wants.
If you martyr enough of them, recruitment will eventually slow down.
The Peshmerga have a women’s brigade… so bring it on….
They hate the very idea of being killed by a woman.
Jordan doesn’t use firing squad anymore. I expect a lot of terrorists will be swinging in the breeze come tomorrow.
Jordan drew a line in the sand.
The ISIS Army crossed that line.
Time to follow through on their vow to terminate ISIS prisoners.
Doing so is something the ISIS Army clearly understands and respects.
not safe for work
You know, when our host explicitly says:
“ISIS now has released a video showing the pilot being burned alive (we will not link to video).”
And you provide a link to the very execution that he chooses not to share with his readers, that is bad manners, my friend.
I speak for myself and myself alone, but if you want to share a video of the barbarity of man that the Professor does not want to share with his readers, start your own blog.
I nominate turfmann for the post of the day.
The 8 minute discussion on the video does not contain any picture of the death… just a official still of the officer in Jordan. So, please review the video and comment on what you see rather than what you said.
Didn’t note the hotlink above your post… still it is up to the reader to view… and frankly …. we should view to remember why the West is is danger…
No it should not be viewed, it should not be aired by media, it should not be allowed to be hosted by any website, because to do so is to give these pot bellied savages exactly what they want.
I have to disagree. As I noted earlier, there’s a wide gulf between the description of a method of murder and the actual act itself. There is nothing… and I mean NOTHING that can inspire anger against those animals better than seeing, not reading, what they are actually doing. Personally, I think Obama and the congress should be forced to watch those videos so they know exactly what is at stake.
I don’t frequent blogs which rely on terrorist-produced death-porn for click bait.
We are the world…
“#IS fighters burn the Jordanian pilot Moath al-Ksasbah alive”
No. “Fighters” did not do this thing. Words mean things, and should be used carefully.
I’m having a real brain fart moment, can you explain what you mean?
I think he means they (the terrorists) are not “fighters” but barbarians, savages, or whatever name you want to put on them, eh, Rags?
thats what I was thinking he meant but wanted to make sure as I am under the weather.
Oh, no, sorry. Hope you feel better soon.
I was writing a response when my browser crashed, so being succinct…
“Fighters” respect other fighters who have fought bravely.
“Fighters” of any human feeling do not kill this way if they have a choice. A “fighter” MAY attack a pill-box with a flame-thrower in the heat of battle to the same effect, but they will not cold-bloodedly do it to a helpless, caged man as part of a video.
These are not “fighters”. They are humans who have chosen to be monsters. Do NOT dehumanize them by calling them “cockroaches” or anything like that. To fully hate what they have CHOSEN to be, they must be remembered to be humans. But they are NOT “fighters”.
Agreed. Animals can’t be condemned for being savage, they don’t know any better.
Which is why I refer to them unapologetically as “pot bellies savages”.
Oh sure, appeasement and diplomacy are the best approaches with these animals.
Ah, but remember the counsel of Ol’ Walleyes Clinton…
we should understand and empathize with our enemies.
Seriously. She said that.
But Guantanamo, but Abu Ghraib.
“But Guantanamo, but Abu Ghraib.”
Should be a model for the wimpy end of the scale of how these pot bellied savages are treated. I know a way to keep them from being mistreated and if used I can guarantee that none of them will be mistreated.
All it takes is a simple change to our ROE in the middle east. Change to ROE to EWEP = Eliminate With Extreme Prejudice.
So do I and it is “take no prisoners”.
IS will deserve everything that is thrown at them in the near future.
I will not compare them to any animal because these monsters are far worse than any lion, tiger or bear (o my).
I hope that Jordan will not waste any more time in regard to carrying out the sentance against that woman.
ISIS wanted her because her return would be seen as a triumphant prize giving them ascendancy over Al Qaeda.
IS makes Al Qaeda look tame.
sort of OT but it feels like I lose a bit of my soul everytime I make one of the atrocities available to people to see the evil.
I firmly believe people need the access to see the face of evil if they are up to it, but having to watch these (to make sure they are source material) sure does get to me,
We are becoming immune to the actual barbarism of these savages. We need to really think long and hard about why we, the world, lets these “people” do what they’re doing.
I’m sure they felt they exhausted the shock value of beheading, and that’s why they switched to burning. That, and sadism, of course.
The only Islamic execution video I’ve seen was the Daniel Pearl video. After watching it, I recognized the wide gulf between the word ‘beheading’ and the actual deed. No words can adequately convey the savage butchery of the actual act. I have no desire to imprison or torture the perpetrators of these attacks, I just want them wiped off the face of the earth.
But that is the point, the point is not to actually behead someone, the point is to behead someone in the most graphic way possible.
In most countries that still use beheading as a capitol punishment, (and no I don’t really disagree with the practice there is no “good” way to kill someone), the use people who have been trained to actually do the job. They do it swiftly and usually with a single stroke. It is just as “humane” as the electric chair or the gas chamber and actually probably a lot faster than both.
Basically the point is not the death or the method of death it is to inspire terror through brutality, which is why they are terrorist.
Napalm the bastards!
This is the speech a real president would give to the world if we had ones that really cared more about doing their jobs.
“My fellow Americans I come before you today to deliver a message to those that engage in or support terrorist actions and to those that give aid and comfort to terrorist. The message is that IT STOPS NOW! Anyone who continues the practices above will be subject to the full military might of the United States.
Now I know what you are thinking, but don’t think that this is a mistake, or an over reaction. Instead think about us nuking your puny insignificant little speck of a country into a large sheet of glass.
Then think of us waiting until it has cooled to send in platoons of Marines in rad suits armed with soft rags and Windex to shine that baby up so that we can enjoy the view of it at night from the cameras on the space station.
Thank you for your time and attention. God Bless and Good Night.”
What would be particularly fun about this is when the cameras switched back to the talking heads in the lame stream media just in time to see their little heads pop and splash the camera with goo.
ISIS – of the same crew for which Chris Kyle is being called a “racist” for labeling them as “savages.”
After watching more coverage about these horrible killings, one way would be to wipe large gatherings of these IS insects. Drop a few MOABs on clusters of them, give’em a small taste of shock and awe.
For example, the Syrian town where IS dropped a Gay person from a high building and the town folk decided to finish the job, stoning him, when he survived the fall. That whole area should be wiped out, send a couple of B51s with MOABs raining down on that town.
