Jordan's Queen Rania Shakes Up Arab World: Confronts Moderates for Helping ISIS by Doing Nothing to Stop Them

Teresa Neumann : Nov 21, 2014  Heather Saul - The Independent

"We—the moderate majority—are equally to blame. Our silence speaks volumes. The silence of moderate Arabs made them complicit in ISIS' success." -Queen Rania

"Known for her poise and beauty, Queen Rania didn't hold back in denouncing the repugnant activities of [ISIS] during a power address to the Abu Dhabi Media Summit in the United Arab Emirates," said a report on Catholic Online. "The 44-year-old monarch spoke against the disgusting videos of decapitated prisoners being promoted by ISIS on Twitter and Facebook. She said the terrorist group is trying to hijack the Arab world and drag us back to the Dark Ages."

The beheading videos are "alien and abhorrent to the vast majority of Arabs—Muslims and Christians," said Queen Rania, "and they should make every Arab across this region seethe."

"We—the moderate majority—are equally to blame," she said. "Our silence speaks volumes. The silence of moderate Arabs made them complicit in ISIS' success. At the heart of the assault," she added, "is an ideology. If you think you can defeat an ideology with a bullet, think of what happened when Osama bin Laden was killed. Sure he died, but his legacy is even stronger, more twisted extremist movement."

"We must create a new narrative and broadcast it to the world. Because if we don't decide what our identity is and what our legacy will be, the extremists will do it for us."
