As Purim approaches, thousands of Israeli children and families grapple with poverty
Leaders from the Islamic State of in Syria (or ISIL, as it is known in Iraq) are calling for the execution of Jordanian King Abdullah II.
According to a report written for The Gatestone Institute by Khaled Abu Toameh, The terrorists recently posted a video on YouTube threatening to “slaughter” him.
In the video, they referred to the Western-backed Hashemite monarch as a “tyrant.” Several of the terrorists who appeared in the video were apparently Jordanian citizens; vowing to carry out suicide bombings inside the kingdom, they tore up their passports in front of the camera.
The threat to Jordan is seen as a real and immediate one due to the fact that ISIS/ISIL has captured large swathes of territory on both sides of the Iraqi-Syrian border. Jordan is bound on two sides by Iraq and Syria.
Moreover, the terrorists are not planning to stop at Jordan: according to Toameh, they are planning to carry their jihad also to Gaza, Sinai and Lebanon.
“ISIS is a threat not only to moderate Arabs and Muslims, but also to Israel,” Toameh wrote, “which the terrorists say is their ultimate destination. “The U.S. and its Western allies need to wake up quickly and take the necessary measures to prevent the Islamist terrorists from achieving their goal. Failure to act will result in the establishment in the Middle East of a dangerous extremist Islamist empire that will pose a threat to American and Western interests,” he warned.
