Queen Rania of Jordan led protests on the streets of the capital Amman this morning as thousands took to the streets after Friday prayers to urge King Abdullah II to step up airstrikes against the Islamic State to avenge the brutal murder of pilot Moaz al-Kasaesbeh.
Crowds massed near the city's main Husseini mosque, then marched chanting 'Death to Daesh', using a derogatory Arabic acronym for the terror group, in the latest sign of mounting public anger.
The rally came three days after Islamic State released a video purporting to show Kasaesbeh being burnt alive in a cage as masked militants in camouflage uniforms looked on.
The act has been widely condemned as among the most sickening ever committed to film and has sent waves of revulsion across the Middle East. Jordan's royal family have led the anti-ISIS protests in the country, with King Abdullah making an emotional visit to the pilot's grieving relatives in his tribal home village yesterday and Queen Rania breaking down in tears as she embraced and comforted his young widow.

These people are a class act. Can we import them to lead us?
YOU are welcome!
How many of them are out to protest, and how many just showed up to look at her?
VERY compelling article and photos. Thanks for sharing. I am sure this will be all over the MSM on tonight’s news, right? NOT
Muslims condemning terrorism and doing something about it? It will never make the news
Another nation with a beautiful First Lady with high moral character. What a treasure that is!
Paging John Boner pick up your phone. After BiBi is finished she is next.
CLINTON GLOBAL INITIATIVE.
Hmmm, put some ice on it.
Wonderful! She’s a lovely person and has obviously encouraged a great leader (in the person of her husband, who I loved seeing in his fatigues going out to blast some savages back to the 7th century).
uh, ya got me dawg. Straight up busted.
I see that even Al Qeada is condemning ISIS now but that’s more of a turf war thing.
Al Sistani who is the Iranian leader in Iraq is also slamming ISIS. He’s an interesting case. He doesn’t like us much but liked Saddam Hussein and the current Iranian regime even less.
The boy takes after King Hussein (grandfather?)
In this case it would be, Haram!
