Treat my son well, like a guest: Captured Jordan pilot's father tells ISIS

Amman: Even though the barbaric extremist group ISIS, has in the past, sadistically chosen to ignore the pleas made by hostages' kins, the father of the captured Jordanian pilot has requested the Islamic State to treat his son well like a “guest among brothers of ours in Syria Islamic State".

Like the parents of other ISIS' Western hostages, Youssef al-Kasaesbeh, the father of Jordanian Flight Lt Moaz al-Kasaesbeh also has made a plea, hoping that the extremists don't harm his son.

“I don't want to describe him as a hostage.. For he is a guest among brothers of ours in Syria Islamic State,” said an anxious father, trying to assuage the extremists by referring to Syria as Islamic State.

“I ask them in the name of God, and I ask them with the dignity of Prophet Muhammad, Peace be upon him, to receive him as a guest and treat him well,” said the pilot's father.

26-year-old pilot Moaz al-Kasaesbeh, who is a Flight Lietenant in Jordan's Royal Air Force, was married this year in July.

Given the past incidents in which the pleas made by the parents of ISIS hostages fell on deaf ears, it is unlikely that the barbaric extremist group would pay heed to the appeal made by the captured pilot's father.

The ISIS has earlier beheaded three American and two Briton hostages.

Moaz al-Kasaesbeh, the pilot of an anti-ISIS coalition warplane Jordanian F-16 aircraft, was captured by the ISIS after his plane was shot down.

The ISIS claimed to have shot down the plane and also posted online images purported to be that of the pilot.

However, the US military refuted the IS claim that they downed the plane, suggesting that the extremist group wants to cash in on the crash to highlight its achievement.

Jordan is one of the anti-ISIS coalition members that has carried out air strikes against the ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

The US-led anti-ISIS coalition has been launching anti-jihadist airstrikes in Iraq and Syria since September and this is the first coalition warplane to have crashed.
