Watch King Abdullah’s ‘Meet the Press’ Moment

During an interview Sunday with David Gregory on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” King Abdullah of Jordan said that all of the problems in the Middle East stem from the unresolved Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He told a seemingly incredulous Gregory:

Unless we solve the core issue of the Israeli-Palestinian, Israeli-Arab challenges, then we will always be an area of instability that costs all of us. … Any crisis you want to talk about — whether it’s Al Qaeda, Iraq Syria, Pakistan, Afghanistan — all comes back to the sore, the emotional issue that is Palestine and Jerusalem. … What is Al Qaeda’s platform? It’s the plight of the Palestinians and Jerusalem.”

A portion of King Abdullah’s interview can be seen below:
