The Kingdom of Jordan borders Syria, Saudi Arabia, Israel and Iraq

(Feb. 5, 2015) — The Daily Caller and other news outlets on Wednesday reported that Jordan’s King Abdullah will navigate a bomber on Thursday targeting ISIS fighters in response to the murder of a young Air Force pilot, Lt. Maaz al-Kassasbeh, made public on Tuesday.

Abdullah served as a general in the Jordanian army and vowed to avenge al-Kaseasbeh’s death as if he were his own son, according to the Jordan Times.

On Wednesday, Jordan reportedly killed 55 ISIS militants in air strikes in a move independent from the working coalition of the United States and a number of Middle Eastern countries.

An immediate response to al-Kassasbeh’s murder at the hands of the terrorist group by Jordan was the execution by hanging of two prisoners, one of them a confirmed Al Qaeda leader.

Abdullah was meeting with Obama in Washington on Tuesday evening when news of al-Kassasbeh’s murder became public.  Other Arab nations have expressed outrage to al-Kassasbeh’s murder, which the BBC reported might have occurred a month ago.

Beginning last summer, ISIS has overwhelmed Iraqi soldiers, murdered thousands in the most gruesome of ways, pillaged and destroyed Christian churches and driven Christians out of their ancestral homelands, taken slaves and prisoners, and threatened to carry out terror attacks in the West.

A member of Congress commented that “King Abdullah is not Obama,” referring to the difference between the two men’s responses to ISIS’s brutality.

Since August, the U.S. has carried out air strikes on ISIS targets, but Obama has stated that he will not order ground troops to the region.

Last July, a former CIA agent wrote that “The inability of the United States government to anticipate the ISIS offensive that has succeeded in taking control of a large part of Iraq is already being referred to as an ‘intelligence failure.’”

According to The Jewish Policy Center, ISIS arose from a terrorist group supported by Al Qaeda which sought to control the western portion of Iraq after U.S. troops arrived and Syrian “rebels,” including members of the al-Nusra Front, who were supported by the U.S. materially in their attempts to topple Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad.

On August 20, The Policy Center reported:

Turkey, Qatar, and – indirectly – the United States supported the Nusra Front early in its existence in the Syrian civil war, although it is on the U.S. list of terrorist organizations. In 2011/12, the U.S. was supplying arms from Libya to Turkey for distribution to Syrian rebels, and both Turkey and Qatar provided them to their preferred radical jihadist groups, not the so-called “moderate” Syrian rebels at least politically favored by the U.S. The Nusra Front was a recipient of both arms and money. The CIA was working in the area at the time, ostensibly helping the Turks “vet” the opposition groups and providing them “non-lethal” aid.

On Thursday morning, Fox & Friends’ co-anchor Brian Kilmeade referred to ISIS as “the modern-day Nazis” in response to reports that its members are crucifying Christian children in Iraq.

Two American journalists have been beheaded by ISIS as well as a British aid worker, two Japanese journalists and on Wednesday, a Christian priest, among thousands of others  Following brief remarks about the death of James Foley at the hands of the terrorists last August, Obama returned to his golf game on Martha’s Vineyard, where he was vacationing.

The Obama regime does not term ISIS’s actions as stemming from “radical Islam.”

As an unelected monarch, Abdullah approved constitutional amendments last summer providing for a new elections commission and constitutional court.

  1. Maybe King Abdullah could come over here after he cleans out the radicals there and clean out the White House and other DNC Muslim Strongholds in America.
