(ISRAELNATIONALNEWS) — Egypt’s former mufti expressed doubt recently that the Islamic State (ISIS) indeed burned alive a Jordanian pilot it kidnapped in Syria.
In an address posted on the internet on February 5 and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), the former mufti, Ali Gomaa, opined that the images showing the burning of the pilot were photoshopped in order "to instill terror in people's hearts."
“Let me surprise you… ISIS did not immolate the guy. He died on January 3. When you say him standing there – it was photoshopped. The proof is that he did not move while he was burning. Can anyone just stand there and burn like that,” Gomaa said in the video.
