Downed Jordanian Pilot Captured by Barbaric ISIS Group Locked in Cage, Burned Alive

KassabehA horrific new video released by the barbaric Islamic group ISIS, which also identifies itself as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, shows a captured Jordanian pilot being locked in a cage and burned alive.

As previously reported, Japanese journalist Kenji Goto—who was beheaded over the weekend—was featured in a video last week holding a photograph of Jordanian First Lt. Moaz al-Kassasbeh, and warning that ISIS would kill both of them if jailed female would-be suicide bomber Sajida al-Rishawi was not released.

The woman cited had been convicted in 2006 for her participation in the 2005 bomb attacks on hotels in Amman, Jordan. She was to have served as a suicide bomber, but her vest failed to detonate.

Jordanian officials had retorted that if anything happened to al-Kassabeh, they would execute the terrorists responsible for his death.

On Tuesday, ISIS released video and photographs that purportedly showed the pilot locked in a metal cage while surrounded by jihadist fighters. As with other captives, al-Kassabeh was dressed in an orange jumpsuit, but his clothing was wet with what was believed to be gasoline or some other kind of accelerant. There was also trail of powder leading from outside the cage to the pilot.

Kassabeh IIISIS member Emir Ahmed is then seen bending down to light the fire with a torch, and al-Kassabeh screams in terror before falling to his knees. Moments later, he is engulfed in flames as he dies. Another ISIS member driving a tractor then dumps rocks and sand onto the cage to extinguish the fire.

The 22-minute video was entitled “Healing the Believers’ Chests” and is in the process of being authenticated. The beginning of the video shows footage of King Abdullah of Jordan meeting with Barack Obama, vowing to join the fight against the Islamic State.

Ironically, Abdullah was visiting the United States when the video was released, and is expected to cut his visit to Washington short due to the incident.

“While the military forces mourn the martyr, they emphasize his blood will not be shed in vain,” spokesman Mamdouh al-Ameri said in a statement on Jordanian television. “Our punishment and revenge will be as huge as the loss of the Jordanians.”

Barack Obama also commented on the matter, stating that if the video and photographs are authenticated, they will serve as “just one more indication of the viciousness and barbarity of this organization.”

“It will redouble the vigilance and determination on the part of the global coalition to make sure that they are degraded and ultimately defeated,” he said.

al-Kassabeh, 26, had been captured in December after his fighter jet went down over Syria.

    Since photos and video have been released (go here), questions have been asked where is the breaking point until resolution is found? From a rise in belligerent fundamentalism in the mid East to the rise of neocon US policies. Who has the best pr and the will as a grab for a shattered mid east rages on….? How far will ISIS go as it seeks to keep its ‘dramatic’ cause alive in the string of recent defeats ?

      There is nothing Islamic about this thanks.I am a former Roman.catholic.who chose Islam as a.religion murder death torture is all forbidden in Islam. Isis are not Muslims.

      • 2ruthmatters

        And yet, you don’t see peaceful Muslims coming out in their large numbers condemning these actions that are being “falsely” attributed to their Islamic faith. Carly, you need to do some history homework on your prophet Mohammed. Then come back and delete your comment.

        • Phipps Mike

          you must be blind. Muslims have come out since 9/11 discrediting terrorism in the name of the Islamic faith. Ever heard of apathy? Can you blame them for suddenly going quiet after thousands of naysayers like yourself always want to call them liars?

          • JD

            there is over 1.6B Muslims in the world, you can’t assume that all of them do this, if they all of them do this, the world would literally end. THESE Are not representatives of ISLAM. If people that are muslims are telling you that they do not represent muslims, what gives you the right to say that it does? Who ARE YOU?

          • Randall Benson

            to call yourself a muslim you must believe in their so called quran
            if you do,then you are a disease that must be destroyed.

          • Phipps Mike

            JD, you are thinking that I am against Muslims? no, that would be incorrect. I am however against ANY extremist of ANYTHING. That would include politicians, certain Christians, CEO’s, etc…. Life is ALL gray, there are no ABSOLUTES. These murderers are extremists…NOT Muslims.

          • boone1

            BULLSHIT DUDE THEY ARE MUSLIM and you are wrong on all counts.And a stupid liberal at best.

          • Phipps Mike

            you really need some anger management for that bigotry of yours.
            First it should be mentioned that “Muslim” is a person, “Islamic” is the religion. Not ALL Muslims are Islamic.
            Second, you calling me a “Muslim” lover just because I defend them against stereotypes and bigotry is disingenuous.
            If I was to say that not all blacks drugs and commit crimes, does that make me a black lover?
            Think before you answer because you just MIGHT slip and show you are a racist as well as a bigot.

          • 2ruthmatters

            The only ones condemning the actions of those faithful to true Islam are those who deny the tenants of the faith! They aren’t liars, they are hypocrites and they will be eradicated along with all the other infidels who dares to disobey Allah. Many westernized Muslims may not like what’s going on but they remain silent not out of apathy but fear and will be faithful little followers when the time comes to hold the feet of the infidel while the radical (warrior) saw’s off his head. Being called a liar never kept my mouth shut, sir. If that’s all it takes to remain silent for something you strongly believe in or are strongly are against there’s not much more to say. Yes, I do blame them and all those who kept their mouths shut who knew about the atrocities of the Holocaust!

          • Phipps Mike

            “are those who deny the tenants of the faith! ” this is the crux of the argument. Only the Farrakhan faction are using the Quran for extremist purposes. Any person can be a fundamentalist, Muslim OR Christian. Fundamentalism means to take everything literally without thought or using ones own noggin to know the difference between symbolism, parables and fiction that has a “moral”. So a fundamentalist Muslim is NOT really a TRUE Muslim.

          • 2ruthmatters

            You don’t know much about Islam or their Prophet do you?

          • Phipps Mike

            I have watched and studied since 9/11. Most ALL people have wrong info about the Islamic religion. It teaches PEACE, NOT terrorism. You can believe everything YOU hear but I wont subscribe to believing RUMORS.

          • 2ruthmatters

            I don’t deal in rumors… just truth through careful study with a willingness to be wrong on any issue. My research turned up the opposite. Ignorance of true Islam is their greatest weapon. We’ll just have to agree to disagree but don’t say you have not been warned of the coming slaughter when “peaceful” Muslims who number in the billions and growing throughout the world will be chanting Allahu Akhbar right along with the “fundamentalists” as you call them. Google taqiyya and kitman by Raymond Ibrahim just for grins.

          • Brian Siefring

            Really?…yea, I’ve seen them picking up arms and joining the fight..bullshit

          • Phipps Mike

            ???? joining WHOSE fight?

          • Brian Siefring

            lol..well yea, I’ve seen them join isis.

          • Phipps Mike

            you in the military or were you? if not, then I call BS on your part.

          • Brian Siefring

            I was in the military..but that’s irrelevant. I don’t see muslims joining the fight against isis…do you?

          • Earl Henson

            Call WHO liars? I’ve heard/seen maybe two Muslim leaders since 2001 come out and denounce this stuff. And I watch way too much TV and internet so I would have seen/read it.

          • Phipps Mike

            leaders, maybe, There have been THOUSANDS of Islamic people that denounce violence. I believe that the majority of people in America don’t know the difference between the Farrakhan faction of Islamic vs the TRUE/Original Islamic religion. Farrakhan is the ON LY extremist Islamic faction that promotes death. But thats because he is black and his hatred of supposed oppression is what launched his true violence against whites who are not Islamic.

          • boone1

            That’s a lie and you know it muslims all over the world and even here in this country cheered when 9/11 happen muslim lover.

          • Phipps Mike

            I have video to prove that the Islamics within this country were pleading with the general public that they do NOT believe that as their religion. Sure, the Islamic in Iraq were cheering. Do you know why?
            1. Because the US tries to be the worlds police
            2. America IS a Capitalistic whore, money means more than humans treatment (A republican conservative trait).
            3. They were taught that freedom is NOT conducive to the way life is supposed to be, They believe life is about “servitude”. How is that any different than YOU serving God? except that you calling me a liberal shows that you are also a capitalistic whore,

          • boone1

            Show us the video.And Islam is not a religion dude when will you wake up about that muslims are nothing but murders all of them.

          • Phipps Mike

            really?
            Full Definition of ISLAM
            1
            : the religious faith of Muslims including belief in Allah as the sole deity and in Muhammad as his prophet
            2

            http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/islam

            the video has been deleted from the account it was at in wordpress, however, the following paste is from Smithsonian. One of the most reputable reliable sources on the internet. Pay close attention to the second sentence:
            “Then came 9/11. The vast majority of Muslims rejected the mass killing of innocent civilians, but still found themselves tainted by Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda, a man and a movement most neither knew nor supported. Islam became increasingly associated with terrorist misadventures; Muslims were increasingly unwelcome in the West. Tensions only grew as the United States launched wars in Afghanistan and Iraq—and the new, elected governments there proved inept and corrupt.

            ISLAM is not a religion but a cult a murdering cult at that and you are a blind fool and a liar and can prove nothing the only good muslim is a dead muslim and you right along with them.

          • Phipps Mike

            ” the only good muslim is a dead muslim ”
            do you realize you just lost this debate with the use of the word “only”?
            That PROVES you are a bigot. It also proves that you haven’t the brains to know that there are many Muslims who are not Islamic.

        • Rotorwash

          If the Baptists were beheading infidels who insulted the name of Jesus…

          You could count on many Catholics, Mormons, Pentecostals, Lutherans, Evangelicals and other Christian denominations protesting loudly and intervening (violently if needed) to stop such barbaric slaughter.

          But in this very real case, far too many choose to sit and lie to themselves that things are not what they seem.

  • Fundisi

    I am sure Obama and liberals will call it industrial violence, on the job violence, never terrorism and never Islamic terrorism.

    • Phipps Mike

      he already called it terrorism several times.

      • Fundisi

        Not ISLAMIC terrorism!

        • Phipps Mike

          look at your statement again, it says “never terrorism AND (which means OR) Islamic Terrorism. Regardless, terrorism is NOT Islamic because Islamic does not CALL FOR terrorism.
          Extremism of the Quran is blasphemy, so any Muslim that INTERPRETS the Quran to use terrorism is NOT a Muslim any more than a Fundamentalist is a Christian. Fundamentalism is ALSO terrorism because it teaches you to FEAR God and accepts all of the unnecessary death that God called for. (Sacrifices).

          • Fundisi

            It is apparent you know neither the Bible or the Qur’an or the other falsely-called Islamic holy books.

          • Phipps Mike

            I know the Bible well. I think you forget how fire and brimstone preaching came about. God was “kill hungry” with anybody who crossed him and asked for sacrifices. That is why Jesus died FOR us. To take Gods wrath away from us until judgement day. I know the Quran shares some same books as the KJV and that NO writing in history should EVER be taken 100% literal.

          • Fundisi

            If you actually had studied the Bible, you would see massive amounts of testimony of God’s Wrath, of fire and brimstone. Even Jesus spoke often or hell and against sin.

            It depends upon what you mean by literal.

          • Phipps Mike

            thats what I am saying. God killed people all of the time and wanted sacrifices. Including innocent animals and peoples children. How is this accepted by the same people who try and say that Islamic religion teaches to kill?

          • Fundisi

            I cannot invest the time to educate you on God’s Word. The Old Testament, which only teaches about such things, was to show that without death no one can be saved. Jesus set aside the Old Testament of the Law and He shed His blood for our salvation and in His life, words and in the New Testament there is no warrant for any violence by Christians.

          • Phipps Mike

            so you qualify yourself with the fact that you are a vet. Completely dismissing the idea that you are OLD, disabled, and over confident. I was in the Army too. I also am not disabled, I still play drums making my reflexes stay quick on a daily basis and I have a clean bill of health and NO handicaps or disabling conditions. My address is easy to obtain and if I were worried for even one iota of a second, I wouldn’t be telling you what I do.
            You are NOT scary and you are at least 20 years older than I am. 70 years old even for a non disabled person is NOT really considered “good health”. So you can keep up with your delusions of grandeur and being a legend in your own mind, but its not going to make you as tough as your passion that is born from misdirected hatred.

    We ask in Jesus Holy name to change these brainwashed barbaric satanic terrorists and save them in Jesus precious Holy name. Lord we pray for a revival in the middle East and that people will realise who truly are, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords who died for even these terrorists. He without sin cast the first stone. However we can never tolerate such barbaric terrorism but they are misguided fearful and brainwashed but you died for them too. I pray you show yourselves to them and we see a revival with millions of souls getting saved and Lord God we pray for peace! We cannot condone such violent acts but we are also commanded to be like you and act how you would act. Lord you yourself were tortured and brutally killed in the most barbaric way by the very people you came to save, and as you hung there dying in agony you prayed for them saying Father forgive them they know not what they do! We have to think about that whilst we watch in horror we must think about how You would react. Lord I pray for revival and the salvation of billions of souls in these final days and as you commanded we pray for the peace of your beloved Israel! Lord heal the world, heal the brokenness, shine a light in the darkness and help us to be like you and love like You. Lord we are your ambassadors here on Earth ordered to tell people about your free gift of salvation because it is not Your wish for even one soul to be eternally destroyed in hell. You have already paid the price and if anyone understands this suffering it is You! Lord as we are in the very last days and even the mark of the beast is now being implemented, it is not too late yet for people to turn to You! So please Lord God pour Your spirit out on all the nation’s and let there be more souls saved than any other time throughout history. In Jesus name we declare peace and salvation and Just as you would help us to forgive as You have forgiven us Amen xxx

  • Jess

    Jesus can soften even the hardest of hearts and change even people’s hearts who on the outside look like they have no heart like these terrorists! Just look at Paul, a murder, a terrorist, a persecutor. Just like these terrorists, he actually believed that what He was doing was good and was for God. The Lord miraculously changed Him though and He became such an embassador of Christ that with the help of the Holy Spirit and strong faith, He was able to lead millions to Christ and spread Christianity right through Greece, Cyprus, Italy, Malta, Sicily, Turkey and all over Europe and the Mediterranean. He was just like these terrorists before His personal life changing encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ who died to pay the price to save us from our sins with the consequence being eternal agony in hell for those who reject Him. The Bible says that God Is loveable He loves us more than we could ever begin to imagine but He is a Holy Righteous God who cannot have even one sin in His presence. He cannot bear to even look at sin. Nomatter how many good works you do, the Bible says it can never ever be enough. You cannot save Your own soul! For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God and the consequences is eternal separation from Him in hell. Hell was never meant for humans but for the devil and his demons. It is not God’s wish that anyone should go to hell. He doesn’t send anyone to hell, you send yourself there by your own sin and rejecting the sacrifice God himself made to make a way to bring you back into a relationship with Him and live with Him forever in Heaven. Only Jesus was worthy to pay the price for the sins of the world because He never once sinned. A sinner can’t pay the price for another sinner for you both deserve the punishment but a Sinless man can and did! He loves us so much He literally died for us and went to hell and back for us but the good news is on the third day He defeated death and rose from the dead and His alive and fighting for the salvation for your souls right now in Heaven! If you want to accept the free gift of salvation right now and know instantly that you no longer need to fear death because you will instantly be saved and have your name written in the Lambs book of life so you can be certain if you died today you would go straight to Heaven and live forever, then pray this prayer. Dear Jesus thankyou for paying the price for my sins and being killed brutally on the cross to save me from eternal death. I am sorry for the way I have lived my life and sinned against you but I ask you right now to forgive me of all of my sins and wash me clean by your precious blood which you shed for me. I thank you Lord that because of what you have done for me I can now be forgiven and be adopted into Your family and be called a Child of God and an heir of Heaven. Lord I ask you to come into my life right now and take over Lord. Please change me from the inside and wash me clean and help me to stop sinning against you with the help from the Holy Spirit. I now know because of Your perfect sacrifice I can now have an intimate relationship with you and actually personally know you. I thank you for how much you love me and ask that you help me to grow in faith and love you back. Please renew my heart and mind and heal all the brokenness and from this day forward help me to follow you. I fully repent and give my life to you Lord Jesus. Thankyou for Your love and mercy and grace and forgiveness in Jesus Holy name Amen. If you prayed something similar to that, it doesn’t have to be as long, you can use your own wording and make it shorter if you wish, the main thing is you are entering into a personal relationship with God and repenting of your sin. If you say a prayer like this and truly believe it in your heart then your name is now written in the book of life and He isvpreparing a mansion for you in Heaven. If you have just given your heart to the Lord well done I am so happy for you and the Bible says for every single person that repents and turns to Jesus, a party is going on in Heaven for your soul is now saved and you are adopted as Gods child 🙂 I pray for peace, salvation and a pouring out ofvthe Holy Spirit all over the globe Amen xxx

      > the main thing is you are entering into a personal relationship with God and repenting of your sin

      I am not a theist, but all the same I think I am a “sinner,” (at least in so far as I talk to myself, or another fake-person within myself who does not exist, with whom I have a very unsavoury self-loving relationship). So the “repenting of my sin” bit is plausible.

      But entering into a personal relationship with God seems more difficult. How does one do this? Normally when I think of entering into a personal relationship with someone, I think of inviting them into my home for tea, or beer, or chat. But in this case, of course, such behaviour would be inappropriate. How do you relate to God?

      Do you talk, in your mind, to God? Is that, a conversation, the nature of your relationship? If so then I am worried that it would be the continuation of the worst part about myself – the aforementioned tendency of my own to speak to myself as if some one, two people, one of whom who loves me is hearing.

    When we saw images of burning skyscrapers we were horrified as we are horrified now. It was only later that some were sceptical, not that good people had not died tragically and horrifically, but perhaps that there were powerful economic, rather than solely fanatical, reasons for the horror. The horror is perhaps even greater now. We know the names, families, and faces of those that die in flames. We see them die in fewer numbers, but in close up. I am not a Christian. Evil is not something that I believe in. But I believe it is possible that we may be witnessing something worse than fanatical terrorism. Even as we are horrified, morn, or perhaps, God give us strength, attempt to forgive, let us keep our wits about us. What is the cause of this horror? Why is this happening, now, in this place? What will happen as a consequence? Who will suffer, and will anyone benefit; will we ourselves?

    The issue is not the Muslims, BUT the so called liberals and secularists that side with the terrorists as we can clearly see on this forum.

    • Phipps Mike

      I don’t see ANYBODY on this entire thread siding with the terrorists, I do see SENSIBLE people saying it is NOT Islamic faith to kill.

    I find it so ironic that Obama himself on one hand will condem these acts and on the other he aids it, truly Obama is an evil man.

    If as many fundamentalists believe the satanic actions of those who mercilessly murder and kill all who are not believers in Islam are going to take over the world. i would like to assure them that they never will. The God of love is far greater than the God of evil, And lets face it would anyone really want to live here under total Islamic rule? God what a hell hole it would be and who would want to be a woman under such rule constantly having to wear a covering even on the hottest day. Do the radicals honestly believe that women
    should never bee seen. If so when The real God made coverings for the first two humans surely he would have mad a bigger one for the female.
    Paediophilia and Murder at the slightest provocation 9yr old girls inducted into a marriage they don’t have a choice in.
    JESUS said do not fear those that can harm you physically but fear those who possess try to your soul. This planet under Islamic rule your welcome to it and may you constantly live in fear. But it won’t be heaven and their won’t be virgins waiting for you when you die in the name of your god as there just won’t be any left.

This planet under Islamic rule well that’s no big achievenement anyone can walk on the street and kill his neighbor or tie him up then murder him. Such big brave boys you are. An Islamic planet? your welcome to it and may you constantly live in fear. But it won’t be heaven and their won’t be virgins waiting for you when you die in the name of your god as there just won’t be any left after the pillage.

    You know I hate to say this and I don’t agree with ISIS on how they kill people, but I watched the 4 part mini series “The Bible” and my wife and I thought that the Christians back then were very barbaric while trying to get to the Holy Land. and I’m not trying to start anything on this thread and welcome comments to what people think about the movie.
