The Hashemite and Hashem-ite Reaction to Barbarism

Recently, we heard in the news about the barbaric burning to death of the Jordanian pilot in the most brutal way - burning him to death in a cage.

What was the King of Jordan's reaction?

King Abdullah to personally lead air strikes against ISIS
DEBKAfile February 5, 2015, 2:39 PM (IDT)

Jordan’s King Abdullah decided to take part personally in air strikes conducted Thursday against Islamic State targets – in revenge for the execution by burning of the Jordanian Air Force pilot, Lt. Mu’ath al Kassasbeh. The monarch has trained as a fighter pilot. It was not clear from the announcement whether Abdullah would fly a warplane himself or attend the launching of an air raid.
Perhaps that Hashemite king learned from one of the first Hashem-ite kings.  In Shemuel Alef chapter 30, the Amalekites committed atrocities by burning down Tziklag and capturing its women and children, and only through miracles from Hashem (Mahari Kara, Radak) did no one get killed.  The all-but-crowned King David was blamed for this, but got the courage to ask Hashem via Evyatar Hakohen for advice, and when the answer was positive, eventually smote the Amalekites, saved the women and children, and collected the spoils.

If only our governmental leaders knew how to act similarly.

Yeh I am very impressed with King Abdullah.
Can't imagine any other world leader doing anything like that...... or maybe Putin would.... but he hasn't so far.

Anon #1: Yes, we see what is happening now, and could be that what we reconquered will be given away, BUT this will usher in Moshiach Tzdkeinu and everything H' promised us will be ours eternally and the world will know there is only H'.
