After failed negotiations, ISIS once again killed off its prisoners. First they beheaded journalist Kenji Goto of Japan and now they have executed Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh.
ISIS has been in negotiation with Jordan to release two held terrorists for al-Kasasbeh. Sajida al-Rishawi was one of them. She was a failed suicide bomber who was jailed for her attempt to kill others.
Today, Isis released a video showing Jordanian pilot being set on fire. The pilot is seen on video wearing a prisoner’s jumper suit and is placed in a cage. His clothes are wet showing that he was doused with a combustible liquid, perhaps gasoline. Isis fighters wearing Marine uniforms instead of their black robes then set Al-Kasasbeh on fire. He is seen in pain jumping and then grasping his face and falls to his knees as the flames engulf him. He remains in that position as the camera zooms in showing his face and eyes literally melting and dripping from his chin. The dead charred body then falls backwards. A wheel loader then drops heavy stones on the cage crushing it and Al-Kasasbeh’s remains. It then rolls over it and completely crushes his remains in the rubble.
The video has angered most of the world. Jordanians took to the streets in Jordan to protest and call for revenge. Revenge did come as the terrorists ISIS wanted to be released were hanged. Jordan’s King has vowed more action against ISIS.
It is just disturbing not only to hear the news but also to watch the video. My curiosity got the best of me as I viewed the video. It is extremely difficult to watch. ISIS even made the video cinematic. It almost looks like it is a scene in a movie! It is just disgusting how they have no regard for human life. My prayers go out to Moaz’s family as well as the families of the Japanese journalists killed. ISIS is of Satan.
