ISIS released an online report today in English justifying the brutal murder of Jordanian pilot of Moaz al-Kasasbeh.

ISIS cites Quran 16:126 in their defense.
Here is the online report:

** The Islamic State captured Moaz the Jordanian pilot on December 24th 2014 after shooting down his F-16 fighter jet from the skies of al-Raqqah (Syria). What was his jet doing in the skies of al-Raqqah?


** Moaz was part of the American-Arab-Iranian (Shia) coalition who was bombing innocent Muslim civilians in Syria and Iraq day and night. There have been more than 3000 tonnes of bombs thrown upon Muslims since the coalition against the Islamic State.

** The Islamic State decided to lock Moaz in a cage (representing a building), burn him alive, and then throw concrete bricks on his dead body (similar to how a person is burnt from an airstrike and the building falls on his body)), as a Qisaas (retribution punishment) for what he did to the Muslims in al-Raqqah.

No matter how much empathy one may feel for Moaz, he allied with disbelievers to kill Muslims while he had the choice to live safely in Jordan with his family.

This is what made him face the death he faced. The Islamic State is giving a clear warning to the Arabs’ and the world in general – that if you kill Muslims and fight the Islamic State – you will get a death similar to how you gave it to the Muslims.

وَإِنْ عَاقَبْتُمْ فَعَاقِبُوا بِمِثْلِ مَا عُوقِبْتُم بِهِ ۖ
And if you punish [an enemy, O believers], punish with an equivalent of that with which you were harmed. (Quran 16:126)
