SYRIA: Cheering crowds watch big-screen videos of Jordanian pilot being burned alive by the Islamic State (ISIS)
Filmed in the ISIS terror group’s de facto capital, Raqqa, the four minute clip is titled “Muslims’ Joy at Burning of Jordanian Pilot.” In the video, a young child of about 8 says, “I would burn him with my own hands,” as the crowd cheers and shouts Islamic religious slogans when the pilot is engulfed by flames.
UK Daily Mail (h/t Maria J) A sickening video showing cheering crowds of ISIS supporters watching the barbaric murder of a Jordanian pilot on specially erected giant screens was released yesterday afternoon.
The crowd can be heard cheering and shouting religious slogans as the airman goes up in flames, before an interviewer asks for their views on the atrocity, which has been widely condemned as one of the most sickening acts ever committed to film.
Among those questioned is a child who appears no more than eight-years-old. He is seen smiling and talking vividly about the murder, while eulogising about ISIS and their barbaric acts.
Jordan’s King Abdullah II today returned home after cutting short a visit to the US where he was when news broke that the pilot had been savagely murdered. ‘We are waging this war to protect our faith, our values and human principles and our war for their sake will be relentless and will hit them in their own ground’, he said.
