Prince Charles attacks Muslims as Jordan's regime launches airstrikes

Issue No. 2440

The regime in Jordan claims to have carried out at least 56 airstrikes on Islamist group Isis since last Thursday.

This follows the execution of Jordanian military pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh by Isis last week.

The Jordanian government has said its response to the execution would be “earth shattering”.

Prince Charles began a six-day tour of the Middle East last weekend in Jordan.

He was there to hold talks with the king, Abdullah II.

Before he went he accused young Muslims of not abiding by British “values and outlooks.”

He had less to say about the values and outlooks of the Jordanian regime—which punishes people for criticising the government.
