Muslim jihadists fighting for the Islamic State terror group in Syria and Iraq have released a video they claim shows Jordanian pilot Maaz al-Kassasbeh being burnt alive while locked in a cage.
Let’s hope the Jordanians retaliate on the Muslim terrorist prisoners in Jordanian jails as they promised to do if the pilot was not released.
UK Daily Mail The footage, which is titled ‘Healing the Believers Chests’ appears to show the captured airman wearing an orange jumpsuit as a trail of petrol leading up to the cage is seen being set alight.
Flames are seen quickly spreading to the cage where they completely engulf the helpless pilot in images that are far too distressing to publish.
Yesterday Jordan government spokesman Mohammed al-Momeni said the kingdom was doing ‘everything’ it could to secure the release of Kassasbeh, who was captured by ISIS after his F-16 fighter jet crashed in territory controlled by the militants in Syria in December.
However the statement came with an explicit threat that if ‘hero’ Kassasbeh came to any harm, Jordan would ‘quickly judge and sentence’ all those it holds on suspicion of being members of ISIS.
The video comes just days after ISIS’ British executioner in chief, Jihadi John, savagely murdered Japanese journalist Kenji Goto in a shocking filmed beheading after days of intensive negotiations through intermediaries to save him.
The footage showing Kassasbeh’s gruesome murder appears to be professionally shot and edited in the style of the horrific beheading videos featuring the terror group’s executioner in chief, Jihadi John.
Yesterday Jordanian government spokesman Momeni said: ‘All state organisations have been mobilised to secure the proof of life that we require so that he can be freed and returned to his home.’
‘We are still ready to hand over the convict Sajida al-Rishawi in return for the return of our son and our hero,’ Mohammad al-Momani added.
He condemned the jihadists’ murder of Japanese journalist 47-yer-old Goto after days of intensive efforts through intermediaries to save him, adding: ‘We spared no effort, in coordination with the Japanese government, to save his life.’
Last week Jordan vowed to fast-track the execution of Sajida al-Rishawi if ISIS kills Kaseasbeh. It apparently warned ISIS that she and other jailed ISIS commanders would be ‘quickly judged and sentenced’ in revenge for the execution of the pilot.
Intelligence sources said ISIS’s refusal to prove that Kaseasbeh was alive meant any deal with the militants was doomed.
Jordan subsequently stepped up its rhetoric by warning of its intent to retaliate if the negotiations end in bloodshed.
Here is the horrific full-length (22-min) Hollywood-production quality incineration video put out by ISIS. Fast forward to 17:00 to bypass all the propaganda:
The video posted here earlier has been deleted. The links below seem to be working:
Apparently, Iraqi prisoner Sajida al-Rishawi, will be hanged in Jordan as retaliation on Wednesday. Jordan will execute a total of 5 ISIS prisoners.
The Daily Mail The release of the video has prompted Jordan to announce it will execute all prisoners convicted of association with ISIS ‘within hours’. This includes Sajida al-Rishawi – the female failed suicide bomber whom ISIS had originally demanded Jordan release in exchange for Kasasbeh.
