In an effort to counter the rise of the Islamic State (ISIS) and its effect on her borders, Jordan has imposed new rules on Muslim clerics.
In a mandatory meeting held at an auditorium in Zarqa and attended by hundreds of Muslim clerics, Jordan’s Minister of Islamic Affairs, Hayel Dawood, ordered imams to preach moderate Islam – or else.
“You clerics are our ground forces against the extremists,” Hayel Dawood told them. “Once you cross the red line,” he added, “you will not be let back in.”
For months, Jordan has been fortifying its border against the rapidly advancing ISIS – who now controls large portions of Iraq and Syria – for fear that the terrorist organization would soon set its sights on the nearby Hashemite Kingdom.
