Jihadi Preacher Condemns ISIS for Burning Death of Pilot

Friday, 06 Feb 2015 06:36 AM

AMMAN, Jordan — A prominent jihadi preacher has lashed out against Islamic State militants for burning to death a Jordanian pilot, saying this is "not acceptable in any religion."

Abu Mohammed al-Maqdesi spoke to the Jordanian TV station Roya on Friday, a day after he was released from more than three months of detention in Jordan.

A decade ago, al-Maqdesi was considered the spiritual mentor of al-Qaida's branch in Iraq, a precursor of the Islamic State group, but later criticized them for their methods — including attacks on fellow Muslims.

The cleric said in the TV interview that burning the pilot "is not acceptable by any religion and by anyone."

Earlier this week, Islamic State militants released a video showing the pilot, Lt. Muath al-Kaseasbeh, being burned to death in a cage.
