Jordanian Women (and Fighter Planes) Kill ISIS Terrorists

Friday, February 6th, 2015

This video was released by the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan showing the preparation for the aerial attack on ISIS troops, in revenge for brutal murder of the Jordanian pilot.

Note the strategic placement of women in the Jordanian video (and on the fighter squad), preparing the bombs that will be dropped on the ISIS terrorists.

It is generally understood that Islamic terrorists believe that if they are killed by women they don’t go to heaven or get their 72 virgins.

The West has a lot to learn from the Jordanians when it comes to fighting terrorism.

Jordanian Warplanes Fly Over Pilot’s Hometown on Return from ‘Mission’

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

Jordanian pilots honored their dead wing man Thursday in a flyby over his hometown as they returned from an unnamed “mission,” Jordan state-run television reported.

King Abdullah II was visiting the pilot’s family in Karak also on Thursday, just two days after the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terror group released the barbaric video showing the captured pilot being burned alive in a cage.

Jordan’s military vowed to take full revenge on the group. The force is participating in the U.S.-led coalition against ISIS.

The Hashemite monarch asked the Obama administration earlier this week for more “sophisticated air-to-ground weaponry, ground-to-ground weaponry, weapons like anti-tank [and] spare parts,” said Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC) Chairman Senator John McCain. Abdullah II managed to submit his request just prior cutting his visit short and flying back to Amman to deal with the murder of his air force pilot.

The senator told media that committee members from both sides of the aisle agreed to sign a letter to President Barack Obama to fast-track deliveries. He added that if the administration did not act immediately in response to the letter, “which every member is going to sign on this committee, we will then introduce legislation direct to the floor.”

Media reports in Arab and Kurdish news outlets reported overnight Wednesday that Jordanian Air Force fighter pilots struck dozens of ISIS fighters in Mosul, Iraq. An unconfirmed report claimed an ISIS commander for the Ninveh area, Abu Obeidah El Tunisi, was killed in the air strike.

Jordan threatened to avenge the death of its pilot at the hands of ISIS; on Wednesday two imprisoned Al Qaeda terrorists were hanged at dawn. Both were on death row and awaiting execution for multiple murders.

Jordan Bombs ISIS in Syria and Asks US for More Weapons

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

Jordan renewed bombing of suspected Islamic State (ISIS) sites in Syria Thursday, two days after the terrorist organization burned alive a captured Jordanian pilot alive.

King Abdullah has asked the Obama administration for more weapons earlier this week before rushing back to Jordan after the barbaric murder.

He spoke with several U.S. Congressmen in Washington and asked them to break the red tape slowing up delivery of weapons, specifically “more sophisticated air-to-ground weaponry, ground-to-ground weaponry, weapons like anti-tank [and] spare parts,” according to Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC) Chairman Sen. John McCain.

He added that committee members from both the Republican Democratic parties agreed to sign a letter to President Barack Obama to fast-track deliveries.

“If the administration doesn’t act right away in response to this letter, which every member is going to sign on this committee, we will then introduce legislation direct to the floor,” according to McCain.

Netanyahu, El-Sisi Send Condolences Over Pilot’s Death, Confirm Support for Jordan

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu sent his condolences Wednesday to King Abdullah II and to the people of Jordan “for the grisly murder of the air force pilot of the Jordanian air force.”

Netanyahu was referring to Tuesday’s release of a new execution video by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group, showing the January 3rd death of Jordanian air force pilot Muath al-Kasaesbeh. The group killed the pilot by burning him alive in a metal cage.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi also strongly condemned the murder, calling ISIS a “savage, cowardly organization that violates all heavenly doctrines,” the MENA state news agency reported, and also confirmed Egypt’s support for Jordan.

El-Sisi added that the international community “needs to unite to fight terrorism in all its forms and to confront the terrorist groups that use Islamic slogans, even though religion has nothing to do with their actions.”

Netanyahu spoke about the murder while visiting the IDF Hermon Brigade base Wednesday for a briefing by Deputy Chief of Staff Maj.-Gen. Yair Golan and GOC Northern Command Maj.-Gen. Aviv Kochavi. Netanyahu also met with local council chairs from the area.

“In the Islamic State of ISIS they burn people alive,” the prime minister commented. “In the Islamic State of Tehran, they hang them from cranes in the public squares. Both are motivated by an extreme ideology of militant Islamic terrorism that has a cruelty that is unbounded.”

Netanyahu also reiterated that although world leaders are “racing to forge a deal” that would enable Iran to have nuclear weapons, “Israel will oppose this deal, which is dangerous to us, dangerous to the region, and dangerous to the world.

“But the greatest danger to the future and the security of the world is that this extremism will be backed up by nuclear weapons,” he added. “This is something everyone must oppose.”

Report: Jordanian Air Force Kills ISIS Troops and Commander in Iraq

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

Arab and Kurdish reports say the Jordanian Air Force struck in Mosul, Iraq, killing dozens of ISIS terrorists, perhaps as many as 56, including an ISIS commander for the Ninveh area, Abu Obeidah El Tunisi.

Other reports add that the Jordanian troops and armor are massing on the Syrian and Iraqi borders.

These report are still unverified at this point.

Jordan has threatened to take extreme measures against ISIS for the obscene murder of the Jordanian pilot. On Wednesday morning, Jordan executed two ISIS terrorists in response to the murder of the pilot.

Jordan Vows ‘Earth-Shaking’ Response to Pilot’s Execution by ISIS

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

Jordan has vowed a “strong, earth shaking and decisive” response to a video of the execution of a Jordanian pilot by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terror group.

The January 3rd murder of 26-year-old pilot, Muath al-Kasaesbeh, was announced Tuesday by the group.

The news came while Jordan’s King Abdullah II was in Washington DC for a state visit at the White House with Pres. Barack Obama. Abdullah II immediately cut short his visit to fly back to Amman to deal with the issue.

In response, Jordan’s military vowed its revenge would be as brutal as the execution of its much-loved pilot. Al-Kasaesbeh came from a well-known family in a large Bedouin tribe that forms the backbone of support for the Hashemite monarchy.

The Hashemite monarch addressed Jordanians on national television via a video hookup from Washington, calling the murder an act of “cowardly terror” by a deviant group bearing no connection to Islam. He asked all Jordanians to unite.

“The sentence of death pending on … Iraqi Sajida al-Rishawi will be carried out at dawn,” said an unnamed security official, speaking to the AFP news agency.

“While the military forces mourn the martyr, they emphasize his blood will not be shed in vain,” said military spokesman Mamdou al-Ameri in a statement read on Jordanian state television.

Thousands of Jordanians gathered in the pilot’s hometown of Karak, burning tires and blocking roads to demand justice and express their outrage at his death and the means used to kill him.

Jordan’s King Abdullah II Cuts Short Visit to US

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

Jordanian King Abdullah II has cut short a state visit to the United States and flown back to Amman in response to the release of a video showing the execution by ISIS of a captive Jordanian pilot by burning him to death.

“His Majesty the King, Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, has cut short his visit to the United States after the news of the martyrdom of the hero pilot,” state-run television announced Tuesday evening.

The video by Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) ran for 20 minutes and was an elaborate production that culminated in 26-year-old Muath al-Kasaesbeh being placed in a metal cage.

Gasoline was poured in a trail leading up to and into the cage, and set alight. In moments, Kasaesbeh’s body became a living torch.
