In an interview with foreign newspapers including the Financial Times, King Abdullah of Jordan sais "There's a problem inside of Islam. The problem is not Jordan or the United States or Saudi Arabia."
FT reported on its site last Wednesday's attacks left Jordanians shocked and sparked protests even though many had predicted such an event given Jordan's support in the US-led war against Saddam Hussein in neighbouring Iraq, where insurgents carry out almost daily attacks.
First Middle Eastern leader admits that there is a problem in Islam. Middle Eastern counrtries like Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco and Saudi Arabic were attacked by Islamists' terrorism but most defended Islam as saying this is not not the "true Islam". King Abullah, first brave Arab leader, to admit the problem. The language of King Abdullah indictates seriousness and firmness in tackling Jordan's crisis with terrorism. My heartfelt condolences for the vicitms of Jordan's attacks.
