Jordanian parties oppose fight against ISIL

Ammon News - AMMONNEWS - Six Jordanian political parties on Saturday warned the government of their country against joining an international coalition being formed by the United States against the militant ISIL (IS) organization.

The six parties, which formed what is known as the "Nationalist and Leftist Parties Coalition", said in a statement that the Jordanian government needed to fight radical thinking by cultural, economic and social means.

They said they opposed any foreign military intervention in the region, calling on Arab resistance movements to fight against what they described in their statement as "colonial plans."

Jordan was one of ten Arab countries that attended a meeting in the western Saudi city of Jeddah on Friday on means of countering IS, which had overrun large territories in both Syria and Iraq.

In a communiqué issued following the meeting, the U.S. said each of the ten states were essential in the fight against IS, which seems to be getting close to Jordan too.

On Wednesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the radical movement was getting closer to his country's eastern border, in an apparent reference to Jordan.
