Abdullah Warns of Jordanian Hizbullah
YNET News ^ | 8/3/06

Posted on 08/03/2006 9:41:31 AM PDT by areafiftyone

King Abdullah of Jordan said Thursday evening that even if Hizbullah is defeated, peace will not come, and other similar organizations in other countries will be set up.

 

"Even if Hizbullah is destroyed, no solution will be found. After a year or two a new Hizbullah will be set up in other countries, maybe in Jordan, Syria, Egypt, and Iraq," he said.

 

During an interview given by the Jordanian king to two Jordanian newspapers, (al-Rai and al-Rad), he said: "We've warned for a few months

that the situation in the region is unacceptable and that deep solutions must be found to the reasons causing the tension. We must be concerned for the fate of Iraq if Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki doesn't succeed, as we will all pay a heavy price. Regarding the situation in Lebanon – we must stop the aggression on Lebanon. They want to destroy Hizbullah with Israeli tanks and the Israeli Air Force, but peace will be obtained by returning occupied territories and the establishment of a Palestinian state; that is the only solution."

 

"Even if Hizbullah is destroyed and no solution is found to the Palestinian, Lebanese, or Syrian problem, after a year or two a new Hizbullah will be set up in different countries, maybe in Jordan, Syria, Egypt, or Iraq. Israel must understand this. There's no solution in south Lebanon without an agreement with the Lebanese government. There's no solution in Palestine without returning the Palestinian rights," the king said.

 

In the same breath he chose to condemn Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's realignment plan: "We reject the plans of the Israeli prime minister which aspire to take unilateral steps. We believe that the United States understands this now and the Israelis should also understand this."

 

'We will aid Lebanon as much as needed'

 

He later added: "As long as there is aggression and occupation – there will be resistance and support for resistance."

 

During the interview the king asked for an immediate ceasefire and expressed his bitterness for the battle wreckage caused to Lebanon and the "terrible act of butchery in Qana."   

When asked whether his country intends to participate in the multi-national force, he answered with a definitive no. "Jordan won't participate in such forces, but we will aid Lebanon as much as needed," he said.

 

The king was asked about the axis between Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan, which in effect positioned his country against Hizbullah at the start of the fighting, albeit behind the scenes. "We are not for policies of 'an axis,'" Abdullah said, rejecting the idea politely. "But are we forbidden from meeting, consulting, and taking similar stances?" he added.

 

The king was asked whether he intended to withdraw his new ambassador in Israel back to Jordan due to the situation in Lebanon. "We'll do what will be best for our homeland and for the good of our brothers in Palestine and Lebanon," he said.

Okay. It's all hopeless. We'll just have to let Israel get overrun by its enemies, pull out of Iraq and shiver under our covers. While we're at it, we'll throw up our hands on domestic terrorists, too. Let them do what they think best. And we'll stop trying to get our own kids to live stable, honest lives and just tell them to become hedonistic hippies, since they are just going to do it anyway. And we'll let abortionists kill as many babies as they want. (Oh, wait. They already do.) And we'll turn in our guns since it's the only way to end the hate and killing. We give up. There's no way.

This sounds like the same old stuff - the Moslem way or die. This is a cultural fight to the death, and our folks are more concerned about gay rights and the minimum wage.

Abdullah and his wife have always been pro-Palestinian and have given tons of money to them - actually his wife has marched in quite a few pro-palestinian/anti-Israel protests!

Was wondering out the Jordanian portion of Psalm 83 would come into play. He's no more moderate than the rest of them. He just doesn't say it so blatantly as Ahmadinejad does.

He's correct.

Heres the deep solution which should have been undertaken 9/12/01.

Well, Abdullah - if you want to save your country from what's happening in Lebanon right now then keep Hell's-bullah out of Jordan! It's that simple.

If he is correct then Israel should keep as much territory as possible if not acquire more. If war is inevitable they might as well have as much strategic depth as possible.

She's Palestinian.

Formerly Rania Al-Yasin, she was born in Kuwait to a Jordanian family of Palestinian origin who certainly did not anticipate her royal future. In fact, she had already earned her bachelor's degree in business administration at the American University in Cairo and, fluent in Arabic and English, had begun a career at Citibank when she was introduced to Abdullah Bin Al-Hussein, the son of Jordan's King Hussein, at a party. Less than six months later, in June of 1993, the two married. But because Prince Abdullah was not crown prince, neither he nor his new wife anticipated inheriting the throne.

Dad came up with a solution to the Palestinian problem. He called it Black September.

It would seem to be the most prudent course, given what seens to be inevitable.

King Abdullah ought to take a lesson to what his father did, not what he said.

His father, King Hussein, took care of the dangerous PLO and Palestinians pretty handily when they got uppity and threatened his regime. He killed over 10,000 of them and drove most of them out into Syria and Lebanon.

Force seemed to work pretty good for him, especially when he got serious and ruthlessly killed thousands of them!

Abdullah won't do that. He's nothing like his father.

"...peace will be obtained by returning occupied territories and the establishment of a Palestinian state;"

UH, Abdullah, wasn't that what the Israelis tried to do when they pulled out of the West Bank???? Nothing will ever be enough for the islamofascists EXCEPT the extermination of Israel and the US and Europe and everyone who isn't the proper shade of mooslim.

Then eventually Hezbollah will own him and his country.
