Queen Rania of Jordan: Hardliners are now the face of Israel – The Independent

Speaking as a moderate, I fear if the tides don’t turn in our region,
moderation will be amongst the most painful casualties of continued
aggression and hardline policies. As someone who lived through the late King
Hussein’s fight for peace, until his very last breath, and watches his son,
my husband, King Abdullah, continue that fight, it actually breaks my heart
to see us moving further and further away from peace.
