King Abdullah II of Jordan told US lawmakers in January that Turkey wants radical Islam to prevail in the Middle East and flow to Europe.

This and other statements, including Israel turning a blind eye on the Al-Nusra Islamic militant group, were revealed by The Guardian newspaper, which obtained leaked documents from a briefing King Abdullah presented to high-level US lawmakers, among them Senate Armed Services Committee chairman John McCain, Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman Bob Corker and House Speaker Paul Ryan when he was visiting the US in January.

According to The Guradian, Abdullah told the lawmakers that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan “believes in a radical Islamic solution to the problems in the region.” He went on to say that “that terrorists are going to Europe as part of Turkish policy, and Turkey keeps getting a slap on the hand, but they get off the hook.”

Abdullah also elaborates that Israel is turning a blind eye on the Al-Nusra Islamic militant group, which gained free access from Turkey’s porous border to attack and briefly invade the Armenian-populated city of Kessab.

He added that the Israel’s posturing was based on Tel Aviv’s belief that the Al-Nusra front was in direct opposition to Hezbollah, which it sees as a threat to the region because of its alliance with the Palestinian Authority and Hamas.

The brunt of Abdullah’s briefing also revealed that Great Britain had covertly deployed special forces in Libya, with the assistance and participation of Jordanian special forces, which were embedded alongside the UK units.

King Abdullah’s biggest warning came regarding al-Shabaab, an east African jihadist group with a lower profile than ISIS, Boko Haram and others, but which has begun to “feed into Libya.”

“Jordan is looking at al-Shabaab because no one was really looking at the issue, and we cannot separate this issue, and the need to look at all the hotspots in the map. We have a rapid deployment force that will stand with the British and Kenya and is ready to go over the border into Somalia,” he told congressmen, according to The Gurardian.

    Did I not mention before that Turkey is too aggressive, too Islamic, too genocidal, too big and too close. It needs to be broken up into it’s ethnic components.

    This is interesting. When push comes to shove, they all scatter and spill the beans on each other.
    Mr Obama, Erdogan, Europe, Abdullah, etc.. they all tell the TRUTH.
    When they were creating these TERRORIST groups (At least 100) in Syria by American Administration, Europe, England, Israel, Saudi and Jordan, etc.. ; They were all separately negotiating with Erdogan who was going to coordinate these groups. They were all MAKING PROMISES to each other.
    Erdogan was given PROMISES of Protection against PUTIN if he wanted to interfere. Obama was gonna RIGHT HOOK him, Europe was gonna UPPERCUT him, Abdullah was going to jump in his F16 and personally take Putin out if he dared to resist….
    And then
    They all woke up from this terrible dream and ran for cover.
    Obama does not want to meet Erdogan because he does not want to be reminded of his promises; Europe, England, Jordon, etc.. , do not want to admit their promises to Erdogan.
    Abdullah of Jordan thinks Erdogan should send MUSLIM TERROR groups to Syria and not Europe:
    Jordan’s king accuses Turkey of sending terrorists to Europe
    Turkey is deliberately ‘unleashing’ Isis terrorists into Europe, says Jordan’s King Abdullah
    Erdogan tries to remind Europe about their plan to send MUSLIM RADICAL groups to Syria:
    Turkish officials: Europe wanted to export extremists to Syria
    Abdullah of Jordan is very upset with Erdogan. How dare he let the team down!
    Erdogan is upset about being let down and given false promises!
    Europe is upset for failing to send more TERRORISTS to Syria!
    Obama does not remember. Mum’s the word!
    John Kirby will be Abdullah’s co-pilot flying in his IMAGINARY “”NATO SPACE””, holding hands with Abdullah, picturing this wold without PUTIN – while singing John Denver’s “Fly Away” song as they head straight down like Denver.
    ‘For ISIS to survive, it needs support from allies: Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the US’
