Kings remarks came during a meeting, accompanied by Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah, in front of Christian religious men and opinion leaders in New York within His Majesty's efforts to clarify the true image of Islam and confront trials to distort its tolerant message. During the meeting, King Abdullah paid attribute to the efforts of religion scholars during the last years to end the misunderstanding amongst religions. His Majesty noted that religion was used sometimes to justify extravagant ideologies and bad deeds, considering those who do this as gone astray. King Abdullah reiterated the necessity to re-stress the main principles which call to tolerance, love and peace which are the principles of heavenly religions, calling to launch an Islamic-Christian-Jew dialogue based on mutual respect. For his part, James Forbes of The Riverside Church hailed the continued efforts of His Majesty King Abdullah II to achieve peace and progress for all nations in the world, considering the efforts of His Majesty the King to clarify the true image of the tolerant and moderate Islam and to present the joint noble human values of religions as acquiring respect and appreciation on the international level. //Petra// 161250 Local SEP 2005

Some posts in this thread releated to former President Clinton's dalliances have been removed. This is not the place for such a discussion.

This thread is for discussing King Abdullah and Queen Rania's current visit to the U.S. Nor does such an above mentioned discussion have place here at this forum.

Other comments of "oooooooohhhhhh" and "Hellllllooooooo" have also been removed. Such posts are useless and do not contribute to helpful discussions. Please refrain from making such posts.

Jordan's King Bashes Radical Islam

Neil Rubin
Senior Editor

SEPTEMBER 16, 2005
Washington, D.C.


In unambiguous words that some Western religious leaders say are often sorely absent when Muslim leaders speak in public, Jordan's King Abdullah II this week told more than 350 people - some wearing kippot, others in turbans, and a good number with Catholic collars - that all religions, but particularly Islam, must promote moderation and tolerance.

"Moral leadership cannot be hijacked," the monarch said at the Catholic University of America at a Sept. 13 gathering sponsored by the school's Interdisciplinary Program in Law and Religion. "Today, traditional, moderate, orthodox Muslims are reclaiming our Islam - Islam as it has been taught and practiced for over a thousand years: a religion of tolerance, peace and charity

King Abdullah was on the Today Show this morning. They showed some photos from the visit with the Pope and also footage from KA and QR's meeting with students in Washington.
I've got some screen caps from the interview. Sorry about the grainy images, I wasn't getting the clearest reception on the NBC channel.

btw, "The World Reacts" headline was regarding the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, I actually cropped the original screen cap to include just the image of King Abdullah, just thought I'd clarify that.

Abdullah calls for zero tolerance against extremism


NEW YORK — Jordan’s King Abdullah called for "zero tolerance” against extremism and said his kingdom is working to promote moderate Islam across the globe.

"Jordan has worked with the international Muslim community to oppose extremists’ interpretations of Islam,” he told the UN General Assembly on Friday.

"Jordan wants true, moderate and traditional Islam everywhere in the world,” said Abdullah.

A critical step for peace in Jordan, the Middle East and the rest of the world "is to ensure zero tolerance towards those who promote extremism,” he said.

The king made his address in English and his wife, Queen Rania, sat in the assembly hall, applauding after the speech.

Abdullah noted that Jordan has taken a leading role in promoting moderate Islam, holding conferences in the kingdom to differentiate between Islam and extremism.

He said Amman hosted more than 180 Muslim scholars in July. At that meeting, the Muslim world’s top scholars from over 40 countries agreed that fatwas, or religious edicts, should only be issued by clerics with religious authority.

In 2004, Jordan launched an initiative urging Muslims to reject extremism.
