Well, the father of King Abdullah II, the late King Hussein bin Talal (1935-1999) generally pardoned all who were condemned to death (with exceptions) while the present Hashemite ruler is far stricter

Re: Jordan to execute ISIS prisoners condemned to death, unless ...

The ISIS offered to trade the pilot for one female prisoner, whose suicide bomb failed to ignite.

I think Jordan made the correct move: there is no point trying to negotiate with these animals, you just need huge threats, and like all cowards, they will back down.

Well, the present King for years was the Commander of the Anti-Terrorist-Squad of the R.J. armed forces and before that underwent courses in Sandhurst and Westpoint with other specialists from around the globe.

Interesting is to see that the King has changed the National Anthem

They should fix the bomb, reset the timer, then send her back home.

After they executed British aid worker Alan Henning, nothing this ridiculous outfit does surprises me any more.

Jordan pilot hostage Moaz al-Kasasbeh 'burned alive'

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.

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

Re: Jordan to execute ISIS prisoners condemned to death, unless ...

What's next, will they execute somebody by feeding them to gerbils or something.. Stoning, throwing people from roofs, burnings..

There's no end to it, these guys do what they like and the rest play by reasonably civilised rules to try and stop them. Maybe Jordan will now drop the play nice rules and go for it.

To be fair, they were dropping bombs on IS positions and in the process killing dozens of civilians.

Re: Jordan to execute ISIS prisoners condemned to death, unless ...

It appears the young man was actually killed on the 3rd January, thus explaining the prevaricating by ISIS when challenged for proof of life.
The Jordanians should have taken the prisoner swap offered for Kenji Goto's life instead of now losing them both.

Better that, than the poor man's father saying all this ISIS stuff is nothing to do with Jordan. Does he think they'll stop where they are and leave everyone else alone? More fool he.

You don't keep rabid dogs in cages for the rest of their lives, you put them down - for the safety of everyone else. These murderers deserve no less.

Agreed, but sometimes in order to defeat your enemy, you have to become your enemy, despite not agreeing with doing so.
