ISIS/ISIL released a video showing Jordanian Lt. pilot Muath al-Kaseasbeh being burned alive. The video shows him being doused and surrounded by lines drawn in the sand with flammable liquid, which are then ignited, causing him to burst into flames.
Now, Jordan has executed two convicts, including a female jihadist, following the killing of the pilot. The woman, failed suicide bomber Sajida al-Rishawi, and al Qaeda operative Ziyad Karboli — both Iraqi nationals — were hanged at dawn.
This is the wrong approach and will lead to greater violence. Instead of going after the terror organization itself, they took the ‘easy route’ by executing the prisoners, which will simply be seen as a ‘revenge killing,’ by all radical Islamists.
An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.
