Queen Rania of Jordan calls on Muslims to take a stand against ISIS and its ‘attack on civilisation’

Queen RainiaQueen Rania of Jordan today called on Muslims around the world to take a stand against Islamic State and its ‘attacks against civilisation’.

The 44-year-old royal, who is one of the most influential women in the Arab World, spoke out as ISIS threatened to destroy the Unesco World Heritage site at Palmyra, in Syria, after over-running forces loyal to President Bashar Al-Assad.

Speaking exclusively to MailOnline in her home country, the Queen said: ‘It’s an attack on civilisation, it is the latest in the atrocities that ISIS and groups like them have committed.


Jordan’s Monarchy is not well loved. I doubt this appeal will go far.

    • I suspect she will be in Switzerland before you can blink.
