Granger Statement on Jordan’s Decisive Action Against ISIS
WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Kay Granger (TX-12) released the following statement in support of King Abdullah II’s military campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
“King Abdullah II has shown remarkable courage and unbending determination in the fight against ISIS. I commend his decisive action following the murder of Jordanian pilot Lt. Moaz al-Kassasbeh. I fully support King Abdullah II as he and the Jordanian Armed Forces increase their efforts to defeat ISIS. Now is the time for the United States to fully support the Jordanian Armed Forces with the weapons and resources that they need. It makes me very proud that weapons made in the U.S. are being used by the Jordanian Armed Forces in their attacks against ISIS.
“ISIS is a plague that has threatened civilized society. There is no place in the modern world for ISIS’s ideology and brutal tactics. This is not just an American and Jordanian problem, this is a global threat that must be met with the full force of our collective resolve.
“King Abdullah II, didn’t choose this fight, but he is determined to win it and now is the time for the United States to display the same type of courage that King Abdullah II has shown in the last week. Jordan is a critical partner in this fight to defeat evil and I am determined to make sure the U.S. does all it can to eliminate ISIS as a threat to the U.S. and our allies.”
