Jordan's King Abdullah: We are facing a Third World War - Middle East - Jerusalem Post


The world is facing another global conflict and a fast response is needed to deal with the threat, Jordan's King Abdullah said on Tuesday.

"We are facing a Third World War against humanity and this is what brings us all altogether," he told a news conference in Kosovo's capital Pristina.

"This is a war, as I said, repeatedly within Islam and unfortunately over 100,000 Muslims have been murdered by Daesh (Islamic State) alone over the past two years, and that doesn't also count for the atrocities like-minded groups have also done in Africa and Asia," he said after meeting Kosovo President Atifete Jahjaga.

King Abdullah said the world must "act fast to tackle the response to interconnected threats" from Daesh, the Arabic acronym for Islamic State.

Islamic State has claimed responsibility for Friday's attacks in Paris, in which 129 people were killed, as well as for bombings in the Lebanese capital. The group has also said it brought down a Russian plane in Egypt this month, killing all 224 people aboard.

France and Russia both staged air strikes on Islamic State targets in northern Syria on Tuesday as Paris formally requested European Union assistance in its fight against the group.

"The atrocious Paris attacks shows that scourge of terrorism can strike anywhere and any time," King Abdullah said.

The Jordanian monarch was on a one-day visit to Kosovo where he was given the highest honors by Jahjaga.

Jordan was one of the first countries in the Middle East to recognize Kosovo after it declared independence from Serbia in 2008.

It's heartening when I hear him speak, and to see how committed he is to stopping the progress of ISIS/Daesh. I fear he is correct in labeling this WWIII, as it seems that ISIS will not stop until they have killed and harmed as many as possible, and thrown the world order into chaos.

Jordan's King Abdullah has a point there. The war is within Islam - that is a big statement that I hope Muslims will have the mind to understand, clearly and deeply. The more than 100,000 deaths of Muslims is not just a number and the cause is murder is also not just a word. The war is spreading across the seas and in a few years may be all over the world. Good minded Muslims should think and act so the terrorism will stop spreading.

While it [the fight against ISIS] being labeled a third world war does appear like an exaggeration there's a good reason why everyone should be concerned because the terrorists are actively recruiting jihadis but they don't want them in Syria. The recruited jihadis are to carry out terrorist attacks wherever it is they live. Unless they are stopped, ISIS's war will extend far beyond Syria and Iraq.
