Salma, do you have an English translation of the speech? Since that's the language of the forums it'd be helpful for our non-Arabic speakers.

Jordan's King Abdullah II, returning from his trip to the U.S., greets as he drives through a crowd of people who were gathering to show their support at Queen Alia Airport in Amman, Jordan, Wednesday, Feb. 4, 2015. King Abdullah II rushed home Wednesday, cutting short a U.S. trip, to rally public support for even tougher strikes against the Islamic State group after the militants released a video showing the captured Jordanian pilot being burned to death in a cage.

King Abdullah looks very grim and serious. He has a hard task ahead, and will need all of his strength and abilities to navigate in these difficult times. I hope he takes after his father.

It is not because King Hussein was married with a glamorous American, made (read: was enforced) a peace with Israel and is in the Western camp that he is a "good King". His regime was a dictatorship, a relatively mild one for Middle East-standards but when you write "I hope he takes after his father" than you are thinking away the many (sometimes disastrous) mistakes the previous King made and still are the roots of the many structural problems Jordan faces today.

My opinion for Jordan changed forever after the retaliation executions. I thought Jordan was a civilised state.

It may seem barbaric to you. At the same time, King Abdullah is in a predicament because he is forced to rectify and mend blunders created by incessant clumsy meddling of enlightened western regimes in the region.

I think this a poor excuse. I will not say anything further. Think again about that.

This is not the site to discuss this item but they were sentenced to death by a Jordanian court years ago. The mentality and culture is different in Jordan than in Europe where the people don´t accept the death penalty.

There ALREADY had been a trial except the death penalty was on hold.That changed now,so justice was done..And what do you talk about civilised?Civilisation?We're talking IS here...How does one compare that with everything/anything one holds dear?No,King Abdullah may have quoted Harrison Ford with his line,but no well thinking individual can do other then wholeheartedly support Him in his mission,and all others fighting against these creeps.

Not that the changing your opinion on Jordan would have an impact globally Godiva,but really,with all due respect...get your facts right before one reacts...and I don't do BS nor false info on matters so serious,it doesn't help for others to form a clear picture.

We see too little from any action against IS from within the region itself...especially now the UAE backs off in using their aircraft...afraid a toy might get kaput.No,I hope King Abdullah will proof as fierce as his late beloved father was in his day.

You are fully entitled to your opinion. We agree to disagree on the matter. As I have said earlier, enlightened Europeans are too clumsy and lack finesse to deal with the Middle East and Asia.

JORDAN- FEBRUARY 5: Queen Rania of Jordan consoles Anwar Al Tarawneh, the wife of the Jordanian pilot Muath Al Kasasbeh, who was burned to death after being held hostage by Islamic State (IS) on February 5, 2015, in Aey, Jordan. Muath al-Kasaesbeh was captured by the terror group after crashing his plane near Raqqa in northern Syria, during a mission against IS in December.

Bravo to the King!!! I for one think he is doing the right thing. What does it get you to just sit back and allow these animals to continue killing innocent people? Nothing. They will continue their barbaric practices in order to get what they want and to strike fear into people in order to make themselves look unbeatable. I say strike back and hard. Good to know there is someone out there who is willing to take on ISIS and do some damage. Long live the King. Just my opinion of course.
