The Jordanians who stood against the crime in pride and unity, and stood in a difficult moment united have the right to seek justice from the monsters. Muath’s comrades in the Arab army have the right to a response that shakes the strongholds of terrorists everywhere.

    It is difficult for observers, and even those experts in extremists’ affairs, to always interpret the behaviors of extremists. This is what is currently happening with the terrorist organization the Islamic State (IS). In its second letter regarding the Jordanian pilot Muath Kassassbeh and the Japanese hostage, the organization threatened to kill the pilot if Jordan did not release criminal Sajidah al-Rishawi, and nothing in the letter referred to the fate of Japanese hostage. The next day, IS brutally killed the Japanese hostage and did not mention the Jordanian pilot.
