    Nihad Awad, the Executive Director of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), said it plainly at the 14th Annual MAS-ICNA (Muslim American Society and Islamic Circle of North America) Convention in December 2015: “Black Lives Matter is our matter. Black Lives Matter is our campaign.” Khalilah Sabra, another Muslim activist, told the Muslim conference: “Basically, you are the new black people of America….We are the community that staged a revolution across the world. If we could do that, why can’t we have that revolution in America?” With the murder of five policemen in Dallas by a sniper during a...

    TEL AVIV – While France is facing Israeli criticism for suggesting the deployment of international observers to the Temple Mount, WND has learned the Kingdom of Jordan is floating its own plan to consolidate power at the holy site, proposing non-uniformed Jordanian soldiers patrol the sensitive complex. The Jordanian proposal was quietly made in recent days to Israeli and U.S. officials, according to diplomatic sources here. The Israeli government immediately rejected the possibility of Jordanian soldiers, uniformed or not, stationed inside the Jewish state. The diplomatic sources said that last month a Jordanian general and other Jordanian military officers held...

    AMMAN, Jordan — Just after nightfall Feb. 3, a warrant arrived at the city’s main women’s prison for the execution of Sajida al-Rishawi. The instructions had come from King Abdullah II himself, then in Washington on a state visit, and were transmitted from his private plane to the royal court in Jordan’s capital. A clerk relayed the message to the Interior Ministry and then to the prisons department, where it caused a stir. State executions are complicated affairs requiring many steps, yet the king’s wishes were explicit: The woman would face the gallows before the sun rose the next day.

And as is the case with current Canadian -and Australian- leadership,  King Abdullah II of Jordan also appears to have a far better grip on dealing with challenges to US security/interests these days than clueless-and-of-dubious-agenda Obama regime ever will. Perhaps this is not a surprise: even though there's been some bumps in the relationship (i.e. backing Saddam Hussein 2x), ever since the 6-Day War Jordan has become known as one of the most stable US allies in the Middle East, running a moderate Islamic government that doesn't care much for extremists,...

    NBC’s chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel said on Friday that President Barack Obama‘s statement on the passing of Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz al Saud was ironic and just an attempt at being polite because in reality, the late king “could not stand” President Obama. According to Engel, Saudi Arabia was against the “democratization” that the U.S. encouraged with its support for the Arab Spring and its opposition to former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. “One of the big ironies here is that President Obama, in his statement, said how close he was to King Abdullah — King Abdullah did

    US President Barack Obama has pledged to Jordan an additional $200m (Ł131m) to help deal with the growing number of Syrian refugees in the country. After talks in Amman, Mr Obama said the funds - if backed by Congress - would help provide more humanitarian aid. Some 450,000 Syrians have fled to neighbouring Jordan since the unrest began in 2011, putting huge pressure on the Jordanian authorities. Meanwhile, Jordan's King Abdullah ruled out closing Jordan's border with Syria. President Obama said he would ask Congress to provide additional funds as "budget support" to help the Syrian refugees. He said this...

Eldad has dueled in recent years with Jordanian King Abdullah II's decision to abandon the Hashemite Monarchy's position that Jordan is the true 'Palestinian State.' In 2011, Abdullah rejected the long-held formula of the Hashemite monarchy that "Jordan is Palestine," saying "The so-called 'substitute homeland' exists...

Abdullah added his government would increase pressure on Israel to reach a final status agreement with the Palestinian Authority. He did not, however, provide any concrete facts to buttress his oft repeated assertion of Israel's imminent doom. Israel remains a regional leader in the realms of economics, military, science, and...

Also, Jordan's King Abdullah II made a surprise visit to an impoverished northern village. It was his first such trip since the unrest broke out in neighboring Egypt, and appeared to be an attempt to defuse popular anger over the country's troubles and portray himself as a caring leader. On Tuesday, Abdullah named Marouf al-Bakhit prime minister, bowing to public pressure from protests inspired by those in Egypt against...

Even while sprinting in the heat and humidity during drills, sometimes in full pads, Abdullah is adamant about his faith. He will not allow himself so much as a cup of water until the sun sets and before it rises. "I'm putting nothing before God, nothing before...
