Islamic State asks Twitter how to 'kill Jordanian pilot pig'

Tens of thousands of Islamist terror group's supporters offer ghastly suggestions in coordinated response to Jordanian campaign in solidarity with captive pilot's family. The radical Islamic State terror group has shown its murderous colors again after capturing a Jordanian pilot flying a mission for the US-led coalition, by asking social media users how they should murder the captive. The group's supporters on social media have been using the hashtag "Suggest a way to kill the Jordanian pilot pig" to crowd-source creative solutions to murder First Lieutenant Muath al-Kaseasbeh, who was shot down over Syria and captured by the ruthless radicals. The active hashtag, which has garnered thousands of shares and tweets by the group's activists and their supporters, has exposed horrific methods to torment the Jordanian pilot to death.

According to news website Vocativ, which identified the increased use of the hashtag, the myriad ways suggested included beheading, burning alive, pummeling with a tractor, and "impalement." And if one hashtag wasn't enough for the Islamic State supporter, another – WeAllWantToSlaughterMuath – has been mentioned over 11,000 times. The jihadi hashtag campaign was a response to the much wider campaign run by supporters of the Jordanian pilot and his family. Since he was taken captive last week, hundreds of thousands of Arabs have tweeted using the hashtag WeAreAllMuath, in which they share their prayers for the captive Jordanian.

The campaign was even adopted by Queen Rania, who uploaded a photo to instagram in solidarity with the captive, and Jordan's official television channel, which broadcast a picture of Muath alongside the hashtag. Muath married last summer and only finished flight school in recent months. His father, Youssef, also urged the public to support the family. "I pray that Allah will plant mercy in their hearts and they will release him."

He implored Jordan's King Abdullah "to return my son to me. We all sacrifice for our country and for the honor of the king." The father said he was notified that the king was following the affair and dedicating special efforts to saving his son's life.

First Lieutenant al-Kasaesbah was born in 1988 and lived in the city of Al Karak south of Amman. In 2006, he began his studies at the Royal Jordanian Air Force Academy. Al-Kasaesbah completed his studies in 2009 and joined the Jordanian Air Force. Before his summer wedding, he made pilgrimage to Mecca and then joined the coalition against the Islamic State.
