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.

But Muslims can kill Muslims by the thousand and the world will say "Boys will be boys". OTH - If jews kill a handful of Muslims in self defense, the world will say"Blood thirsty monsters."

It would be nice if we could relocate Israel to the Nevada desert for a few years. They'd increase American prosperity, and the Muslims would be free to do what they do best, slaughter each other.

i never did trust abdullah, and this latest conflict has iced it.

giving away all Israel solves nothing. the islamic lust for conquest would only be aroused. there is a fundamental solution, but abdullah doesn't want to face it, let alone admit it - conversion of the islamic world to the Truth.

Your Kingship should remember that your fate along with your family royals may be the sharp sword instead of the guillotine.

Do Muslim women knit when the blade falls on a neck?

then keep Hell's-bullah out of Jordan! It's that simple.

Shouldn't that be Hell's Bullies? Hmmm, I think I'll add that to my tag line.

Abdullah and his wife have always been pro-Palestinian

Well his father wasn't so very "pro Palestinian". In fact by kicking the PLO out of Jordan and into Lebanon, it can be argued that he, King Hussein, caused the Lebanese "civil war", the Israeli intervention therein, the creation of Hezbollah and the current Hezbo-Israeli war.

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

Push comes to shove, you might be surprised. The man, like his father is a Sandhurst (British Royal Military Academy, more or less their West Point, but much older)) graduate. He served with the British Army in Germany, and when tapped to become King, was the head of the Jordanian special forces, and in charge of securing the Syrian border.

The Israelis are not demonstrating with their dead in the streets, yelling and chanting and asking for revenge. The Israelis are not brainwashing their children in military training camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths. They don't highjack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics; they don't traffic in slaves, nor have their leaders called for Jihad and death to the "Infidels."

Israel doesn't have the economic strength of the Petroleum Cartel, nor the presumption to force the world's media to see "their side" of the question. Perhaps if the world's Muslims could invest more in education and less in blaming others for all their problems, we could all live in a better world.
