Jewish Israel and Jewish United States are doing a fantastic job uniting the entire Islamic world against Israel.
I’ve really got to give them credit.
The heads of terror groups Hamas, Hezbollah and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad met Wednesday to unite in the war against Israel — as the queen of Jordan claimed the entire Middle East is “shocked and disappointed” at the “glaring double standard” at the West ignoring the plight of those in the bombed-out Gaza Strip.
Photos released by Hezbollah’s al-Manar television station and Lebanese state media showed Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah sitting in a plush wingback chair as he spoke to Hamas deputy chief Saleh Al-Arouri and Palestinian Islamic Jihad head Ziad al-Nakhala, who sat on a couch.
The meeting was to set a goal for achieving “a real victory for the resistance in Gaza and Palestine” and halt Israel’s “treacherous and brutal aggression against our oppressed and steadfast people in Gaza and the West Bank,” according to a brief statement released afterward.
The meeting came as Queen Rania of Jordan said the Middle East is “shocked and disappointed” by the world’s reaction to Israeli airstrikes in the Gaza Strip.
“The people all around the Middle East, including in Jordan, we are just shocked and disappointed by the world’s reaction to the catastrophe that is unfolding,” she told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour.
“In the last couple of weeks, we have seen a glaring double standard in the world,” the queen claimed.
Not a claim.
Statement of fact.
“When Oct. 7 happened, the world immediately and unequivocally stood by Israel and its right to defend itself and the attack that happened,” she said of Hamas’ surprise attack on the Jewish nation.
“But what we’re seeing in the last couple of weeks, we’re seeing silence in the world.
“This is the first time in modern history that there is such human suffering and the world is not even calling for a ceasefire,” Rania continued.
“So the silence is deafening — and to many in our region it makes the Western world complicit.
“Are we being told that it is wrong to kill a family, an entire family at gunpoint, but it’s OK to shell them to death? I mean there is a glaring double standard here,” she said.
“It is just shocking to the Arab world.”
The Queen of Jordan speaking like this is probably unprecedented. I’ve never heard of it before. I could look it up, but I’m kinda tired.
You go look it up and let me know.
As far as I’m aware, Jordan is paid off and very quiet.
