I was shocked and angered by the horrible death that Islamic State committed against the captured Jordanian pilot.
Beheading is bad enough, but burning someone alive shows how evil this group is and how it must be destroyed — not “defeated” as President Obama has stated.
It is a threat to decent people everywhere. There is a double standard amongst peoples of this world when it comes toIsrael. We all know that had this been an Israeli pilot, there would have been dancing in the streets in all the major capitals of the Arab-Muslim world.
It might have well happened here in the U.S. or Europe, because as we all know, the problems of the world are because of Israel, a country just trying to survive while surrounded by millions who want nothing better than to throw her into the sea.
Never miss a local story.
It sickens me to see how people in this world differentiate when those terrible acts are committed against Israel. Then they are accepted —actually welcomed.
The sooner the world sees that, the more successful we will be in defeating ISIS and other groups that threaten civilized people everywhere. Until then, the scourge of terrorism will continue to thrive!
