Jordan's Abdullah likens ISIS to Nazis in speech to European Parliament
Mar. 11, 2015 - Jordanian King Abdullah thanked the European Parliament for their "unbeatable courage" in responding to attacks such as those
in Paris in January. He had attended memorial services for the slain French satirists of Charlie Hebdo, even though he disagreed with the paper's use
of cartoons of Muhammad.
The king compared the Islamic State to Nazism, but encouraged Europeans to help "stop the global rise in Islamophobia."

Prophetic Significance of Jordan
Is Jordan next? King Abdullah knows he is in a winner-take-all war with ISIS. Does Washington?
Feb. 18, 2015 - Jordan's King Abdullah responded with serious air strikes after ISIS extremists burned a Jordanian
pilot. ISIS, in turn, threaten to invade Jordan and “slaughter” Abdullah. The king understands that this is a winner-take-all showdown.
He describes it as “a Third World war.”
As a descendent of the Prophet Muhammad, the king sees himself as a moderate Arab reformer. He believes Islam
is the answer to the challenges facing his region, but he does not believe violent jihad is the way forward.
