King of Jordan promises to defend Christians from ISIS

Amman, September 22, 2014

King Abdullah II of Jordan has reportedly promised to defend Christians from ISIS.


King Abdullah believes that presence of Christians in the Middle East is necessary, which is why he has taken this responsibility upon himself, reports Romfea.

The Latin Patriarch (Roman Catholic Archbishop) of Jerusalem Fouad Twal, commenting on the king’s statement, noted: “We felt a sense of great relief, hearing such words from the head of the state. He made up his mind about this, in spite of the difficult problems that Jordan must necessarily resolve”.

“From time immemorial Jordan has been a home and shelter for all those in need of protection,” the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem added. Jordan is his native land: the patriarch was born in the city of Madaba of central Jordan.

Rarely will someone help save a large number of people in deep distress. King Abdullah of Jordan knows how Christians suffer in the Middle East. May he bring comfort to those in need. God bless King Abdullah and his country. Thank you so much..
