While this statement might sound well intended, it actually subliminally dictates an alarming rhetoric: the king is openly saying the war on global Jihadist terror–in this case he was talking about the war on ISIS– could be ineffective because of the situation in Israel. And an ineffective war means terrorists could win and kill more Americans. This is what the king told millions of American and Western viewers.
Still, the above could have passed as an exaggeration or a misjudgment, was it not for the things the king said next.
When Charlie Rose asked the king whether there was a chance for a peace deal during the remaining period of Obama’s term, he responded:”It has to be because what happens if it is not. This is the critical factor that both sides have to understand, we are now moving into something much bigger, the global fight, the generational fight, if this thing is still cooking and not resolved how are we going to succeed on this larger problem?” The king is telling millions of Americans that their country’s war on terror would not succeed– and thus ISIS might grow and even win– unless Israel and the Palestinians sign another peace agreement during president Obama’s term.
But what are the Obama’s “terms” Jordan’s king talking about there? President Obama made his peace vision very clear right before AIPAC back in 2011: Israel returning to its 1967 borders.
