The BBC news site, amongst, no doubt, many others, carries the story of the execution by the Jordanian authorities of two convicted jihadists, one of whom had been on death row for nearly a decade. The execution was reportedly in retaliation for the brutal burning alive by ISIS/ISIL of a captured Jordanian pilot. Whether or not the two convicts deserved the death penalty, the carrying out of the death sentence in such an obviously responsive way cannot in any sense be described as justice. It will be interesting to see how the world’s press views this action.
