The King of Jordan doesn't need to fly to Paris to stand with terror victims

...There are going to be many leaders at Sunday's mass rally in Paris and their message is essentially the same as the one we are waiting to hear from Jordan. All in all, we think the Jordanians will gain hugely if their monarch stays home and addresses a problem that none of those other VIPs can.

An announcement a few hours ago says Jordan's king and queen are going to attend a mass national rally in Paris on Sunday in tribute to the 17 victims of "a three-day Islamist killing spree". Agence France Press adds that

Some 45 foreign leaders and officials will be present at the historic march in the French capital, which is expected to attract around a million people under high security.

We understand how joining such august company has its attractions. But respectfully, we think HRH King Abdullah II of the Hashemite Kingdom could make a more meaningful contribution to the cause by staying home and taking steps well within his power on behalf of the victims of an earlier Islamist killing spree much closer to (his) home. Here's why.
