This evening (Thursday), Jordanian King Abdullah II called for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to prosecute the Israeli security guard who shot a Jordanian citizen attempting to stab him earlier this week. The king criticized Netanyahu’s conduct and claimed that he is “fanning a fire.”
The Jordanian king continued slamming the way in which Netanyahu made his decisions during the diplomatic crisis with the Hashemite Kingdom. “Netanyahu’s behavior was provocative on all fronts and it infuriated us and fueled the extremists,” Abdullah said. “The way in which the Israelis operate in the crisis will directly affect our relations with Israel.”
Abdullah added that the solution to the Temple Mount crisis was made possible by his cooperation with the Palestinian leadership. “Through a common position with our Palestinian brothers, we were able to guarantee the opening of the al-Aqsa mosque.”
