After Marines were murdered by an Islamic terrorist in Chattanooga, Tennessee, President Barack Obama responded by celebrating the end of Ramadan. It took him almost a week to lower flags in memory of the victims, only after intense pressure.
But over in Jordan, we see what real leaders look like. Queen Rania, along with King Abdullah II are taking a bold stand against Islamic terrorists.
They IMMEDIATELY arrested Assad Ibrahim Haj Ali, the uncle of Mohammed Youssuf Abdulazeez, the 24-year-old shooter from the Chattanooga attack.
The uncle once employed Abdulazeez at the small telecommunications company he manages in Jordan. Jordan didn’t want to see the uncle plan a terrorist attack of his own, which is why they brought him in for questioning.
[Attorney] Abed al-Kader Ahmad al-Khateeb told The Associated Press that he was barred from seeing his client and that family members were also prevented from visiting the detainee. Al-Khateeb identified his client as Asaad Ibrahim Asaad Haj Ali, a maternal uncle of the Chattanooga attacker, Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez.
A Jordanian government official said Tuesday that some of Abdulazeez’s relatives in Jordan were being questioned as part of an investigation into his stay in the kingdom. He would not elaborate on the probe.
The official said he was sure the uncle and “other relevant people” are being questioned, but that he did not know whether he was in detention. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the case with the media.
Abdulazeez spent several months in Jordan last year under a mutual agreement with his parents to help him get away from drugs, alcohol and a group of friends his relatives considered a bad influence, according to a person close to his family. That person also spoke on condition of anonymity out of concern it would have business repercussions.

If he is guilty or not, it is obvious that Jordan’s Queen and King take national security very seriously. As a rare, westernized country in the Middle East, they know how aggressive they must be to defend their liberties from evil.
Unlike Obama, Jordan knows how to handle with terrorists swiftly.
