Last week on February 4th, Shoebat.com through Middle East sources stated that “there would be several other executions” coming in Jordan besides the execution of female terrorist Sajidah Rishawi and Ziad Karbouli. In the same report, Shoebat.com monitored “sudden and surprising transfers of several jihadist prisoners (exact number unknown at the moment) who were transferred to Siwaqa prison which is designated strictly for executions south of the capital Amman.”
As it appears our sources were accurate as today’s Jordan’s Al-Ghad newspaper announced today that a “New Entree” of executions will be conducted in Jordan shortly:
“Sources for Al-Ghad confirmed that a new entree of executions will be implemented shortly for convicted terrorists. The last process of such implementation were regarding the Amman bombings of terrorist Sajdah Rishawi and Ziad Karbouli at dawn last Wednesday after less than 12 hours upon ISIS’s broadcast of the execution of the pilot Muath Kasasbeh. In last December Jordan implemented the death sentence against 11 criminals convicted in an array of criminal cases in Siwaqa prison center after the suspension of the death penalty in the kingdom since 2006.”
It is possible that Moammar Ahmed Youssef al-Jaghbir is also to be executed as his brother revealed in a phone call that his al-Jaghbir was transferred to the execution prison in Siwaqa. Al-Jaghbir carried out terror attacks and was involved in the assassination of U.S. diplomat Laurence Foley in Amman in October 2002. Al-Jaghbir was also found guilty of assisting Salem Bin Sweid, a Libyan who was convicted of Foley’s assassination.
And in Jordan, shop owners closed their stores in support for Muath Kassasbeh, the POW who was burned alive by ISIS:
This how the U.S. should respond to terrorism: execute the terrorists in Gitmo. In response to ISIS for burning alive a Jordanian fighter pilot, Jordan followed the “Hang’em high” method and Sajida al-Rishawi, the failed female suicide bomber whose release was sought by the Islamic State militant group was hung “within hours” as Reuters reported last Tuesday.
If Jordan controls Gitmo, here is what you will see:
Americans should watch Gitmo detainees hung (not released by Obama) while they drink refreshments. While the Arabs drink soft drinks, a beer for an American while a terrorist hangs is not a bad idea. Adding popcorn is a plus. What the heck.
Rishawi was hopeful she get released when negotiation attempts to substitute her with the Jordanian POW were underway, but her good news soon reversed into her own execution. Good riddance. In the Middle East it is either King Abdullah’s Clint Eastwood’s style or Saddam’s The Godfather. Who ever said that Hollywood has no effect and at times, to be frank, I even miss Saddam. Americans hung the wrong guy.
Unlike pro-Islamist president Obama, The King of Jordan including the Jordanian army vowed fire back and kept their word: “Al-Kassasbeh’s blood will not go in vain,” while the Jordanian government announced the Jordanian response to ISIS would be “firm and seismic and strong.”
Karbouli was accused of belonging to al-Qaeda and Jordanian forces arrested him in May 2006 and issued a state security court sentenced him to death on the fifth of May 2007, but the sentence has not been implemented yet and today was made an exception.
Karbouli on a Jordanian television broadcast in May 2006 admitted to killing a Jordanian driver in Iraq and targeted Jordanian interests.
But Rishawi has become quite the icon for ISIS. In 2005, al-Rishawi and her husband attacked a Radisson hotel in Jordan, but only his explosives detonated. After her explosives failed, she fled with the crowd but was later arrested. Following a televised confession, in which she claimed her husband was the mastermind of the double suicide bombing plan, she was sentenced to death.
Though al-Rishawi’s terrorist affiliations are with Al-Qaeda, which has been at odds with ISIS in some parts of the Middle East. It is not only that Rishawi is linked to ISIS through relatives, but the hotel operation was inspired by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, a member of Al-Qaeda and the inspiration behind the creation of ISIS who planned the 2005 hotel attack and is why Rishawi became an icon for ISIS.
Al-Zarqawi’s second in command is al-Rishawi’s brother, and al-Zarqawi has been linked to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi—the leader of ISIS and her husband was also ‘martyred’ even including her first husband as well. Although Rishawi failed in her mission as a second detonation it was a malfunction and not cowardice as ISIS sees it.
By killing Rishawi Jordan prevented ISIS from gaining an icon of a Jihadi mother which is part of Islam’s history. Al-Khansa, a famous 7th-century female poet and contemporary of the Prophet Muhammad who converted to Islam and wrote elegies for his brothers, father and children after they were killed in battle.
Rishawi to ISIS is reminiscent to Rabi’a Al-‘Adawiyya to the Muslim Brotherhood. Al-‘Adawiyya was from the eighth century, a woman from Basra who first formulated the Sufi ideal of a love of Allah is such an icon in which one mosque in Al-Nahda Square in Cairo was given that name which became an icon for the four-fingers and since Rabi’a means “Fourth” it became “Rabi’a four finger sign,” which has gained widespread popularity which users from all parts in the world showed interest from Asia to Europe and from Africa to the USA. Thousands of users notably in Pakistan, Iraq, Egypt, Bosnia Herzegovina, Malaysia and Indonesia use the symbol. On the Facebook, the number of those using “Rabia sign” as a profile picture is reported to be over 100 million. Even Erdogan of Turkey is leading the way when he shows such support on most of his photo ops speaking to Muslim crowds. The symbol has now spread globally in support of an Islamic utopia. The problem of Islam is not just ISIS, but an entire Islamic revolution which is soon to encompass the Muslim world whole.
It also appears as R4BIA which some say its Rabia For Brotherhood’s Independant Army, but at face value its the obvious symbol of Rabia For Bia (Bay’a) which Bay’a/Bay’at is “Allegiance” to the Muslim Caliphate.
The outreach of this type of thing is immense.
ISIS wants a female icon, just as Islam had for centuries and as the Muslim Brotherhood has. This is not the idea of elevating women, but that the role of mothers in Islam is strictly to produce Jihadists. In fact, this is the second time ISIS has asked for a female Al-Qaeda member in exchange for a hostage. Following the execution of American journalist James Foley, it was disclosed that ISIS wanted to trade the reporter for Aafia Siddiqui, best known as “Lady Al-Qaeda.” After Foley’s death, the terrorist organization also offered a second hostage, Steven Sotloff, for Siddiqui.
She is currently serving an 86-year sentence in Texas after being charged with attempted murder, armed assault, carrying a firearm, assaulting American officers and being an Al-Qaeda sympathizer.
So what happened to Jordan could happen to the U.S. and ISIS will soon ask for Aafia Siddiqui. ISIS needs an icon and the Americans should quickly execute these, sooner better than later, but instead, Obama releases them back into circulation.
Don’t you wish that Jordan controls Gitmo.
P.S: We usually get tremendous traffic on stories of this sort while we get very little on more serious issues on Christian persecution which will increase as we see these events unfold. For example, we operate a very effective mission in rescuing fellow Christians who literally live under slavery. We are a unique organization (Rescue Christians) who rescue Christians, perdominately in Pakistan that live under the Muslim yoke baking bricks in kilns under the heating sun. Christians too are burned in furnaces in Pakistan with no one to morn them. To see an example out of the thousands we rescue, click here, and listen to the amazing testimonies first hand on how you can help and make a difference, now in this life and for eternity.
