    Jordan pilot hostage Moaz al-Kasasbeh 'burned alive'

    Gonna be interesting to see what Jordan's response to this is.

    A video published online by Islamic State (IS) militants claims to show Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh being burned alive.
    The video, which could not immediately be verified, showed a man standing in a cage and engulfed in flames.

    Lt Moaz al-Kasasbeh was captured when his plane came down near Raqqa, Syria, in December on a mission to support the US-led military coalition against IS.

    Jordan has been attempting to secure his release as part of a prisoner swap.T

    he video was distributed via a Twitter account known as a source for IS propaganda.

    News outlets need to stop reporting the means of ISIS executions. It encourages them to come up with more barbaric ways of killing people as part of their psychological warfare efforts.

    Well I hope they have the balls to follow through, or ISIS is going to assume that they can get away with whatever they like from here on out.

    This is important, because for Muslims, being burned to death, or even being burned after death is the worst possibility imaginable. They believe they can't get into heaven, if their body is burned.

    It is still part of psychological warfare and the media is acting as their agents whether they intend to or not. Sure it is newsworthy and legitimate reporting, but isn't it a lot like school shooters--the more media attention the shootings are given, the more it plants the seed into somebody else's mind to do it themselves? I don't think there is a right or wrong position as far as the press, but if I were a media outlet, I would be having some pretty heady discussions about this issue to decide to what extent we should be reporting certain details knowing we are spreading the message the extremists want spread.

    Jordan to ISIS: If you kill the pilot, we’ll execute captive terrorists.....

    Jordan has ramped up its threats to execute a terrorist whom the Islamic State wants set free if the terror group kills its captured pilot, according to a report. Jordanian officials said would-be bomber Sajida al-Rishawi and other Islamic State fighters would be “quickly judged and sentenced” if Muath al-Kaseasbeh is killed, the Daily Mail reported.

    “I have reliable contact in the Jordanian government who says a message has been passed to ISIS,” said Elijah Magnier, chief international correspondent for Kuwait’s Al Rai newspaper. “It warns that if they kill the pilot, they will implement the death sentences for Sajida and other ISIS prisoners as soon as possible. There are other prisoners in Jordan that ISIS would like to free.”.....snip~

    These twisted bastards don't need anyone to give them any ideas. They'll come up with them all by themselves.

    That you consider them twisted bastards is more or less what they want. They want to be feared.
