Jordanian King Warns Of Impending World War III
Coming from one of the rare voices of reason in the Arab world this is certainly cause for concern.
“This is a Muslim problem,” said the king. The importance of this statement cannot be stressed enough.
Until now, many in the Middle East saw the conflict as one opposing the United States and its Western allies to Islamist groups. The king’s statement in Washington sheds a whole new light on the problem and how to approach it.
“We need to take ownership of this. We need to stand up and say what is right and what is wrong,” Abdullah told CBS News’ Charlie Rose.
This is probably the most important declaration by an Arab leader; admitting that there is indeed a problem within the House of Islam.
