Burned Alive: ISIS burned Jordanian pilot alive in a cagePosted by J Craig on February 3, 2015
ISIS terrorists released a video on Tuesday showing a captive Jordanian pilot being burned alive in a cage, just days after the militants beheaded a Japanese journalist. A Jordanian official said the pilot was actually killed a month ago on January 3.
Lt. Muath al Kasasbeh, 27, was carrying out air strikes over Syria in December when his F-16 plane crashed and he was forced to eject near the northern Syrian city of Raqqa, the Islamic State group’s de facto capital. He was captured by ISIS terrorists soon after.
ISIS has released a 22-minute video titled, ‘Healing the Believers’ Chests‘ showing the Jordanian pilot wearing an orange jumpsuit and a trail of gasoline lit, which leads directly to the cage he is locked in.
During the disturbing video, flames are seen engulfing the helpless pilot to the point where he kneels down, possibly saying his last goodbyes and then falls backwards. A tractor then dumps rocks and sand onto the cage to extinguish the blaze. The images are extremely graphic and distressing and clearly demonstrates the need for ISIS to be destroyed.
Soon after the release of the video, Jordan reportedly moved six ISIS-linked prisoners to a jail in the south of the country which is usually used for state executions.
The spokesman for Jordan’s armed forces, Mamdouh al-Ameri, confirmed Kasasbeh’s death. In a televised statement, he vowed “revenge” for the “hero pilot,” according to The Associated Press and Reuters. Jordan’s king cut short his visit to Washington, D.C., to fly home.
“The blood of our hero martyr Muath al-Kasasbeh will not go for nothing,” said Mandouh Ameri, a spokesman for the Jordanian military. “And the revenge will be equal to what happened to Jordan.”
President Obama told reporters at a White House event on Tuesday that he just got word of the video.
“Should in fact this video be authentic, it’s just one more indication of the viciousness and barbarity of this organization,” he said in response to a question shouted at the end of the event.
Later, in a statement, he said Kaseasbeh “will forever personify the bravery of a true son of Jordan, one who honored his family and country by his seven years of military service.”
Hours after the horrific video, Jordan released news that they planned to execute a woman the militants had wanted freed. The execution of failed female failed suicide bomber Sajida al-Rishawi is understood to be scheduled for early Wednesday morning.
The video is horrific and EXTREMELY graphic.
*********WARNING: EXTREMELY GRAPHIC VIDEO************
We understand that posting this video may upset some people, but the entire world needs to see what they are capable of and why they must be destroyed.
Please keep in mind that this video is extremely graphic and shows the Jordanian pilot being burned alive inside a cage at approximately the 18:00 mark.
Watch at your own risk.
