Christian group to schools: Stop filling kids’ heads with dinosaurs

Technically Incorrect: Insisting that dinosaurs are a 19th century invention and caused one child to become ‘bestially-minded,’ Christians Against Dinosaurs posts its displeasure on a popular parenting site. But surely this is satire.

cad89.jpg
Is the Ark To Salvation self-steering? I do hope so

There are few things more amusing than prehistoric views about prehistory.

I have been woken several times over the last couple of days with rumblings and tremblings about a group that has publicly questioned the very existence of dinosaurs and railed against the bestialization of our children by teaching them dinosaur lore in schools.

The group in question is called Christians Against Dinosaurs. Those of a coarsely waggish nature might suggest that Christians ought not be against dinosaurs, given some of the archaic beings that run certain of the Christian branches.

I cannot begin to debate that, as I’m too busy giggling at some of this group’s postings on the popular parenting site Mumsnet.

These people are for real! Can you believe it?!?

A classic was headlined: “I’m getting sick and tired of dinosaurs being forced on our children.” Its author, claiming to represent the Christians Against Dinosaurs Ministry, exclaimed: “I for one do not want my children being taught lies. Did you know that nobody had even heard of dinosaurs before the 1800s, when they were invented by curio-hungry Victorians?”

The poster goes on to explain that Darwin’s Theory of Evolution “entirely disproved dinosaurs.” Worse that that, though: “Dinosaurs are a very bad example for children. At my children’s school, several children were left in tears after one of their classmates (who had evidently been exposed to dinosaurs), became bestially-minded and ran around the classroom roaring and pretending to be a dinosaur. Then he bit three children on the face.”

This caused a furor. The Huffington Post revealed that the poster had been thrown off Mumsnet for this scientific heresy.

Being of sanguine mind and chilly heart, I tried to investigate this group further. It has a Facebook page, where more than 8,000 claim to be members. It has a Twitter feed, with a mere 194 followers.

And then there are the YouTube videos. The most pulsating is one in which a presenter attempts to convince the world that the first fossil ever found was much later than when the first “idea” of a dinosaur was conceived. She insisted that paleontologists were just tools of a system.

To many ears, this may seem like bilge, but bilge designed to entertain. To my eyes, the woman presenting her argument could barely keep a straight face.

So I contacted the Christians Against Dinosaurs Twitter feed and asked who was its leader and was this all a joke. I received this reply: “We do not have a leader, we are a collective.” I was told this is most definitely not a joke.

Unlike many Christian groups, this one doesn’t seem to talk about God very much. At least not in its video.

I was informed by the group, however, that its aim to “respect Jesus and see through the various dinosaur deceptions.” The woman presenting the video is Kristen Auclair, whose Facebook page claims that she lived in Southbridge, Mass.

A LinkedIn profile for the same name, city and similar profile picture says she’s a commercial insurance account executive. It makes no mention of her antipathy toward dinosaurs. So she’ll insure any old CEO, then.

I was encouraged to join the group to see what it was all about. I made a request, which was approved by someone called Kate (she asked me to withhold her last name.) She told me she is an actor in the UK.

I could not find her among Auclair’s list of Facebook friends. I did, however, find Brontosaurus Rex (seriously).

We all know this? How do we all know this? I wasn’t aware that all of us knew anything at all. That’s just one of the amusements of life.

Still, the group’s welcome message concludes that it’s “a nice group to celebrate Gods wisdom in denying the existing of dinosaurs!”

This nice group says it plans a protest at Ken Ham’s Creation Museum in Kentucky. The date is as yet undetermined. The announcement of the protest was made by Amy Pavlovich, whose Facebook pageclaims that “hearts are for sissies.” And Happy Valentine’s Day to you, madam.

I contacted both Kate and Auclair to ask for further details of their involvement in what to some might seem a joke (of one kind) and to others a joke (of another kind).

“I assure you we are serious about our beliefs,” Kate explained. “The core members all follow Jesus’ teachings but, as I’m sure you’ve seen, since the recent publicity we have been swamped by a larger than usual number of ‘trolling, and people who seem to have joined just to mock.”

How, though, did she get involved in all this? She told me: “I got involved through a family member who worked in the palaeontological field and, as they rose up the ranks and more and more dodgy goings on were revealed their suspicions were aroused and further research ensued.”

She claimed she is still learning. However, one thing she has learned is that “the Museum Industry Complex are ruthless.” But can she change minds? “We already have,” she said.

Auclair confirmed that she had a child and was in insurance sales. She told me that not too many people in Massachusetts share her beliefs.

About the group, she said: “I only hope that it serves as an outlet for others too afraid to speak out about their doubts in the field of paleontology. It is healthy to question the world around us and not just take the word of science as gospel.”

She added: “I personally think that the reaction thus far has been a little crazy. Lol. An influx of Reddit people has made the group a little tougher to handle. I know I’m just trying to get my bearings together to handle the onslaught of berating messages and absolute vitriol flying from these people.”

Welcome to the Web, Kristen.

So remember, kids, fossils are just fossils. They’re not bits of old dinosaurs. Unless, oh, they are. Either way children, please don’t be beastly.

U.S. Sanctions Seen as Warning to Nations Backing Cyber-Attacks

President Obama announces his first public action in response to the Sony hack.

New U.S. sanctions against North Korea over the hacking of Sony Corp. will probably have a limited impact on the isolated Asian nation, but may serve as a warning to other countries suspected of sponsoring cyber-attacks.

The measures announced Friday by President Barack Obama against 10 North Korean officials and three government entities were the first public action taken by the U.S. response to the November hacking of Sony’s movie studio. The administration said further punishment is coming.

Even so, the moves to block U.S. bank access and business dealings with targeted people and entities will be minimized by the fact that impoverished North Korea already is subject to U.S. penalties for its pursuit of nuclear arms and is largely isolated from the rest of the world.

“Sanctions do little against North Korea and really do not put sufficient pressure on the regime or Kim Jong Un personally,” said David Maxwell, a retired colonel in the U.S. Army special forces and a specialist on North Korea, referring to the country’s leader. “Sanctions, while important in sending an international message, are just not strong enough to influence regime behavior.”

For the U.S., the Sony attack was different because it wasn’t simply an attempt to disrupt traffic, spy or steal information, but to destroy data on a foreign network, said an administration official involved in the deliberations about how to respond.

Line Crossed

The latest penalties are intended as a signal to nations engaged in offensive cyber-activities that the attack on Sony crossed a line, according to the official, who asked for anonymity to discuss internal administration debates.

Some cybersecurity specialists have questioned whether North Korea was behind the November attack. White House press secretary Josh Earnest, in a statement accompanying the sanctions announcement, reiterated that the administration blames the North Koreans.

“We take seriously North Korea’s attack that aimed to create destructive financial effects on a U.S. company and to threaten artists and other individuals with the goal of restricting their right to free expression,” Earnest said in a statement that accompanied release of an executive order on Friday. “Today’s actions are the first aspect of our response.”

Direct Links

An administration official said on a conference call with reporters that none of the agencies or individuals listed, however, are believed to have been directly involved in the hacking. The official asked not to be named.

Joseph DeTrani, a former top U.S. intelligence specialist on North Korea, in a phone interview said the sanctions target the key players in North Korea’s government and its major agencies.

He said the country has the technical capacity to carry out the attack on Sony’s computer network, and called evidence laid out by the Federal Bureau of Investigation last month “pretty compelling.”

The U.S. contends that the attack, which exposed confidential industry information and forced Sony to take its computer network offline, was retaliation for the planned release of the company’s “The Interview,” a satirical movie that involves a fictional plot to assassinate Kim Jong Un.

A group that claimed credit for the attack also threatened movie fans with violence if they went to see the film.

Film Released

Sony initially said it wasn’t going to distribute the film, a decision Obama on Dec. 19 said was a mistake. The company has since sent the film to several hundred independent theaters and released it through Internet video services.

While numerous American banks, retailers and other companies have been hit by foreign hackers, the sanctions are the first the U.S. has imposed on a foreign country in response to a cyber-attack on a U.S. company, another administration official said on the call.

Jonathan Pollack, an Asia specialist at the Brookings Institution, a Washington-based policy research center, said because 90 percent of North Korea’s economic and financial transactions are made with China, the U.S. reach is limited.

The sanctions show, though, the U.S. won’t stand still if its companies are the victims of cyber-attacks, Pollack said.

“Part of it is a name-and-shame aspect,” Pollack said in a phone interview.

The U.S. already blocks transactions involving people and entities that help North Korea sell and buy arms, procure luxury goods or engage in money laundering or drug trafficking.

Bigger Impact

Administration officials said in the conference call that they hoped other nations would join the U.S. effort.

Bruce Klingner, senior research fellow on Northeast Asia at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, said in an interview that sanctions could have a greater impact than some people think.

Despite the common perception that North Korea is the most isolated country in the world, Syria, Myanmar and Zimbabwe are more heavily sanctioned by the U.S., he said.

The steps announced Friday will make it more difficult for the targeted North Korean agencies and individuals from operating in the global financial system, he said.

“The most reclusive regime or terrorist group has to have its money cross-borders at some time,” Klingner, the Central Intelligence Agency’s former deputy division chief for Korea, said in a phone interview.

The transfers can be made either impractically through suitcases or, more probably, through digital means. Most of the electronic transactions go through U.S. banks because they’re nearly always denominated in American dollars, he said.

The sanctions “could make it much more difficult to move money,” he said.

North Korea had warned the U.S. against punishing it for the cyber-attack, saying it would lead to damage “a thousand times greater.”

The sanctions would probably lead to more “trash talk,” Pollack of the Brookings Institution said.

DeTrani, now president of the Intelligence and National Security Alliance, a nonprofit group that includes government and business leaders, said he doubted the sanctions would draw any significant response from Kim Jong Un.

“I don’t think he wants to go down that road,” he said.

State TV showed the despot having dinner with soldiers and pro-government gunmen during the rare appearance.

The news came as the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights announced that the death toll from the four-year civil war topped 76,000 in the last year alone.

An estimated 17,790 were civilians, including 3,501 children, making it the deadliest year of the war.

Heavy fighting in the strategic neighbourhood killed at least 25 Syrian soldiers and pro-regime militia on Wednesday before the visit, the observatory said.

Assad was shown sharing a meal of baked beans, boiled potatoes and tomatoes with soldiers and pro-government gunmen known as National Defense Forces.

2015: The Beginning of the End for Kim Jong Eun

Worldly affairs are not simple. There is nothing that does not change. People want stability and permanence, they want to maintain the “status quo”, but reality isn’t like that. If one does not take action and plan for change, they will be forced to change anyway. And if one is forced to change, both the environment and conditions for life and livelihood will be adversely affected; even time will run against them. This is politics. This is economics. The very same principles apply to the country, company, and individual, too.

South Korea’s politics are not actively changing, which is why there is trouble in both the public and private sectors. After widespread democratization in 1987, Korean companies, on the one hand, went from the center of power to democracy, and on the other hand, went from order to disorder. First and foremost, the development of democracy crystallizes procedural democracy in both law and order. Thus, both the citizens and the government put all their efforts into their civic duties and rights, enhancing liberal democracy and enabling the flower of this democracy to bloom. A society in which enhanced liberal democracy thrives is a society in which the citizens themselves feel that their own prospects for freedom and creative expression have broadened. At the same time, they feel a deeper love and sense of responsibility towards their country.

Korean society has not even started the process of becoming an enhanced liberal democracy, and is instead going down the road of a divided community. Both political conflict and conflict between the rich and poor are getting worse. The government’s administrative power has been declining since the days of central authority. At the same time, grassroots democracy is underdeveloped. A hope-filled perspective views this situation as a transition period to liberal democracy. However, it can also be seen as South Korea’s road to ruin. As such, it’s difficult to tell what the future of South Korea will be.

On top of that, unusual behavior regarding the problems of North Korea runs rampant. The members of the National Assembly assert that stopping the North Korean Human Rights Act from passing is a prideful accomplishment. Even the former prime minister distorted the true meaning of the North Korean Human Rights Act, preventing it from being passed. In 20 years, when future generations surf the web and discover this incident, they will think, “How were such terrible politicians able to become assembly members not even 20 years ago?” Indeed, in today’s world, it is very difficult to find a politician with their head on straight.

So, in order for Korean politics to have even a small chance of returning to the orbit of normalcy, two things must be determined: firstly, whether the Unified Progressive Party will be sentenced to dissolution, and, secondly, whether the 19th National Assembly will legislate a new North Korean Human Rights Act. If and when these two matters are resolved, the next thing that must happen is large-scale political reform. This must happen to secure some kind of future for Korean society.

What about Kim Jong Eun’s North Korea, then?

Kim Jong Eun came to power three years ago. During those three years North Korea has changed. But what and how much?

First of all, Kim Jong Eun has succeeded in established his dictatorship by executing Jang Sung Taek and doing other such things to proliferate a reign of terror.

Second, North Korea is continuing on with the nuclear and economic policies that were adopted during the Kim Jong Il era as a strategy to keep the regime afloat.

Third, North Korea has failed to improve relations with China, the United States, and South Korea. During the Kim Jong Il era, economic and diplomatic support from China and South Korea almost completely ceased, and only a limited trade relationship remained (North Korea is trying to repair relations with Japan and Russia but relationships with those countries definitely have their limits).

Fourth, a domestic market run by the residents is quickly starting to flourish. Rather than taking charge of this change, the authorities are taking action to suppress it (which is different from when The Chinese Communist Party strictly controlled economic reform and the Chinese people followed the government’s regulations).

Fifth, North Korea is earning money for its government fund by inciting foreign funding for its 19 Economic Development Zones (except for the Rasun area) and by outsourcing slave labor. The possibility for success for the Masikryong Ski Resort and the rest of North Korea’s tourism industry is low.

Sixth, the North Korea humanitarian crisis has become a prominent topic of international conversation and in March 2014 the UN’s Committee of Information (COI) revealed the true state of human rights in North Korea. As such, the North Korean leadership has been objectified as a criminal organization in the global sphere. Therefore, it has become difficult for North Korea to take normal diplomatic action. Other countries are reluctant to engage in political, economic, military, cultural, scientific, touristic, etc. exchange and cooperation with a criminal regime. The intangible damage, unseen to the eyes of the Kim Jong Eun regime, has been substantial. In other words, international society has begun to chastise the Kim Jong Eun regime.

Seventh, the North Korean citizens have begun to access information from the outside world, and defectors from North Korea are playing an increasingly important role in this sphere.

A country usually falls when there is internal divide. North Korea will meet its end in this way as well. North Korea is a totalitarian dictatorship. Therefore, it is obvious that North Korea’s turning point will begin with ruptures in the dictatorial system itself. Kim Jong Eun has succeeded in establishing a regime based on more fear than the Kim Jong Il era by executing Jang Sung Taek. One can assert that by executing Jang Sung Taek within three years of taking power, Kim Jong Eun has stabilized his power in the regime. This statement is frequently made by people who do not understand North Korea’s authoritarian system or cannot see the hidden side of North Korea’s totalitarian dictatorship.

North Korea’s system of governance is a dictatorship, therefore the dictator’s power and competence is important. However, the support system surrounding the dictator is even more important. The party, the military, and the high-ranking officials of the country have to be in perfect order and support the dictator as one. The ideological base, national resources including food, energy, and materials such as international currency that make up the economic base, the party, military, and country’s systematic administrative base, and the international diplomatic base that acknowledges the Kim Jong Eun regime all have to be in order and must be maintained in order for the dictatorship to continue. And, the dictator himself must have the authoritative capacity to vet, inspect, and manage all aspects of this as well. In other words, the dictator’s range of power and the system itself must be in perfect union.

From this perspective, one can easily understand the difference between the durability of the regimes of the Kim Il Sung, Kim Jong Il era, and the Kim Jong Eun era. In the Kim Il Sung era, the Juche Ideology, stabilized diplomacy, and planned economics together with Kim Il Sung’s charisma, established a good environment for a dictatorial system to smoothly operate. After Kim Il Sung’s death, the economic base collapsed under Kim Jong Il’s leadership. Despite this dangerous situation, everything else remained the same and continued on because of the help North Korea received from China and South Korea. By the mid-2000s, the United States, Japan, and much of the Western world were providing aid as well. Right now, however, under Kim Jong Eun’s regime, there is not one area– be it ideological, administrative, material economic, or diplomatic– that is not falling apart. In the economic sphere, the widespread system of markets in North Korea has been progressing for near 20 years and has improved, but it is difficult to trust that the Kim Jong Eun regime will help continue that progress.

Theoretically, the base of the North Korean dictatorial system is composed of (from the bottom up): the General Public → the Working Class → the Party → the Central Ruling Body → the Suryeong. Because the Juche ideology and distribution system has collapsed, both the General Public and the Worker Class have left the dictatorial system. The General Public and the Worker Class already know that the Juche ideology has failed, and as such, “the pursuit of money” and “each man for himself” have become firmly rooted ideas. These people are under no illusion that the Suryeong and the Party will feed and provide for them.

The Workers’ Party has been divided into the Central Party [the Central Committee] and the so-called Rural Party, intensifying both conflict and enmity. The Rural Party cannot stomach the Central Committee’s regulations. Because of the extremely discriminatory method in which natural resources are distributed, there is a high chance that the Rural Party will revolt against the Central Committee soon. (If there is forced pressure to invest in the 19 economic development zones and if Kim Jong Eun’s nuclear issue remains unsolved, there can be even more unpredictable divisions in the future.)

Last is the relationship between the party and military’s core ruling body and the Suryeong [Kim Jong Eun]. Traditionally, this relationship is most advantageously seen as a “comrade relationship”, but it is not possible for 30-year-old Kim Jong Eun to have a comrade-like relationship with the 60 to 70-year-old people around him. Choe Ryong Hae, Jo Yeon Jun, Hwang Pyong Seo, Hyun Young Chul, Ri Young Gil, Byun In Sun, Kim Yong Chol, etc. could forcefully forge a “comrade relationship” with Kim Jong Il, but that tie is impossible to forge with the young Kim Jong Eun. These people do not consider Kim Jong Eun a comrade and that kind of ideological and empirical relationship does not exist between them. The relationship between Kim Jong Eun and those around them is more like a master-servant relationship. In other words, it is like a relationship between Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il’s descendant and old farmhands. One can also see it is the relationship of an heir and his steward, especially in the case of old and powerful North Korean families like Choe Ryong Hae’s and others like him.

Both Kim Jong Il and Kim Il Sung have maintained their relationships with the families of veterans who fought on their side by treating them with respect. In order to build their political power, they had, from the early 70s, held two secret parties every week. In this way they built their strange “comrade relationships”. Also, the main members of these secret parties soon rose to powerful positions. In Kim Jong Eun’s case, however, there are no people around his age to create a new circle of comrades that would become the center of political power. Unlike Kim Jong Il, there are no children of old communist veterans or comrades from his school days. It is not feasible, after all, for Kim Jong Eun to bring over his friends from his Swiss middle school and use them as “political mercenaries”.

Also, the matter of Kim Jong Eun’s birth is complicated. Kim Jong Eun may resemble his grandfather, but there is a high chance that Kim Il Sung did not even know of Kim Jong Eun’s existence even to the time of his death in 1994. To Kim Il Sung, his grandson was Kim Jong Nam and his granddaughter was Kim Seol Song.

Kim Jong Il deliberately used a ridiculous excuse to ask Song Hye Rang to name the first son that he had with Go Young Hee. Therefore, one can infer that Kim Jong Il did this to hide the birth of his son from Kim Il Sung and Song Hye Rim and act as though the child was Go Young Hee’s from a previous marriage. Therefore, the theory that there was a  “high probability that Kim Il Sung did not know of Kim Jong Eun’s existence even until his death” (proposed by Hyun Sung Il, senior researcher at the Institute for National Security Strategy) holds some weight.

In the end, Kim Jong Eun and North Korea-style dictatorship are substantially contradictory elements in the system. They cannot coalesce. Forcefully pushing Kim Jong Eun into the system is like forcing someone to wear ill-fitting clothes.

It is in this environment that Kim Jong Eun removed Jang Song Thaek, stuck to and then removed himself from the old veteran class, and made officers over the year of 70 go through a fitness test, thereby reinforcing his reign of terror. And in August and October of this year he had 20 associates of Jang Song Thaek from the leadership and propaganda departments shot and executed together. And so, in just three years, Kim Jong Eun was able to establish his own unique kind of dictatorship.

But then what else is left for him to do? The General Public and Worker Class left the dictatorial system long ago, the Workers Party has been divided into the Central Committee and the Rural Party, and there is no comrade-like relationship between Kim Jong Eun and his core ruling body. So what is left? Only his close family. The only people he can truly trust is his wife (Ri Sol Ju), his younger sister (Kim Yo Jong), and his older half-sister (Kim Seol Song). When Kim Jong Eun came to power, North Korea’s dictatorial system had already gone as far as it could go. The fact that the only close people Kim Jong Eun has left is his younger sister, etc. marks the inevitable collapse of the dictatorial system. Therefore, the only thing left is for the ruptures and collapse of the system to be revealed to the outside world.

This may be a foregone conclusion, but Kim Jong Eun peaked into his power as a dictator too early. Kim Jong Il used his father’s glory to gather strength and spent 20 years building his power base (1964-1985), and he spent ten years before Kim Il Sung’s death as his father’s proxy in exercising absolute power (1985-1994). Because of this, even after his father’s death, he was able to maintain a dictatorial system for 17 years (1994-2011).

On the other hand, Kim Jong Eun was able to establish his own dictatorial rule within three years of Kim Jong Il’s death. Does this mean that Kim Jong Eun has perfectly established a dictatorial system? No, that is not the case. Kim Jong Eun’s power has been slipping since the Kim Jong Il era, and his power base is collapsing as a result of the execution of Jang Sung Taek and other extreme actions he has taken during his reign of terror. When he came to power, his position was already incredibly weak. And then he killed Jang Sung Taek and weakened relations with China. Kim Jong Eun incurred great losses for little gain and has fallen into his own trap. Right now, Kim Jong Eun’s power is akin to a house of cards.

Going forward, will Kim Jong Eun be able to continue his reign of terror in order to “stabilize and maintain permanent power”? It will not be possible. What can he do to maintain his dictatorial authority? Earn money and demand loyalty from those around him. In other words, he needs to save the economy. However, as was mentioned above, the circumstances surrounding Kim Jong Eun are not good. 2015 will mark the beginning of the end for Kim Jong Eun. He will fall as quickly as he rose.

The countries that hold onto the lifeline of Kim Jong Eun’s power are South Korea, China, and the United States. South Korea must become a key player in this game. The South Korean government must not foolishly try to revive this collapsing regime.

Captive Jordanian pilot: IS will kill me

In purported interview with Islamic State, 26-year-old pilot captured last week explains how he was shot down in Syria, says flight mission was coordinated with US base in Qatar.

The Islamic State published on Monday a purported interview with the Jordanian pilot captured last week after his plane crashed in northern Syria. In his statements in the extremist group’s monthly English-language magazine, First Lieutenant Mu’ath al-Kaseasbeh explained how his plane was shot down while he was flying a mission for the US-led coalition, and said he was aware of his fate at the hands of his captors.

“We took off to Iraq from Muwaffaq al-Salti Air Base – in the city of al-Azraq in Zarqā’ Governorate – at 6:15 AM,” the 26-year old pilot said.

“We received aerial refueling at 7:55, then went to the waiting area where we were met up by a party consisting of Saudi F15s, Emirati F16s, and Moroccan F16s. We entered the region of arRaqqah to sweep the area, then the striker jets entered to begin their attack. My plane was struck by a heat-seeking missile. I heard and felt its hit,” al-Kaseasbeh explained.

 

Upon being asked if he had “met the American crusaders”, al-Kaseasbeh responded “of course” and shared information about the soldiers stationed at the Royal Jordanian Air Force located in Azraq: “There are around 200 Americans in Muwaffaq al-Salti Air Base. Amongst them, there are about 16 US pilots, one of which is female, with the remainder of the 200 serving as technicians, engineers, and in other support roles.

 

“The Americans sometimes have dinner with us and eat mansaf, which they like a lot. Their talk does not include details about operations because of matters of secrecy and security,” he added.

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.

 

Towards the end of the interview, al-Kasaesbah was asked whether he had seen videos of executions of captured enemy fighters, to which he responded: “No, I haven’t.”

 

The interview is concluded with the question: “Do you know what the Islamic State will do with you?”

To which he responds: ” Yes… They will kill me…”

Reports of al-Kasaesbah’s capture were spread around the world and among social networks on Wednesday. “We are all Muath al-Kasaesbah” became a popular hash tag on Twitter on Wednesday evening – initiated by many Jordanians who fear for the pilot’s fate.

 

Al-Kasaesbah married last summer and only finished flight school in recent months. His father, Youssef, urged the public to support the family. “I pray that Allah will plant mercy in their hearts and they will release him.”

 

“He believed he needed to join the attacks against Daesh in order to protect innocent people from the tragedies they cause them,” said one of the captured pilot’s brothers.

 

The United States has denied that IS shot down the Jordanian aircraft. The head of the US military’s Central Command, Gen. Lloyd Austin, said the US will not tolerate IS’s “attempts to misrepresent or exploit this unfortunate aircraft crash for their own purposes.”
