Jordan’s King Abdullah Calls Battle against ISIS World War III

In an interview on CNN the Kingdom of Jordan’s leader, King Abdullah, called his country’s fight against ISIS World War III!

 

 

Fareed Zakaria: How should the West handle this? Should the response to ISIS be essentially an Arab response, a Muslim response or should the West be in the lead?

King Abdullah II: This has to be unified. I’ve said this to leaders both in the Islamic and Arab world and to the world in general: This is a third World War by other means. This brings Muslims, Christians, other religions together in this generational fight that all of us have to be in this together.

So it’s not a Western fight. This is a fight inside of Islam where everybody comes together against these outlaws, so to speak, together. And there’s a short-term part of this which is the military part of the issue. There is the medium part which is the security element of it. And then there’s a long-term element of this, which is obviously the ideological one.
