ISIS’ 2015 immolation of captured Jordanian pilot Muath Kasasbeh inside Syria was a unifying moment for the country.
Whereas a month before the attack only 72 percent of Jordanians believed that ISIS should be considered a terrorist group, after Kasasbeh’s death the proportion jumped to a staggering 95 percent of the population.
Jordan’s influential Muslim Brotherhood, meanwhile, called the killing “heinous” and “criminal.” Yet popular anger after Kasasbeh’s brutal death cannot entirely explain Amman’s success in avoiding ISIS attacks; after all, the terrorist group has displayed shocking brutality everywhere it goes.
The second fact protecting Jordan, then, is the country’s well-trained security services.
Summary - there is a heightened risk of terrorism against aviation.
The threat is constantly evolving and we must respond accordingly.
