2. BROTHER KING HUSSEIN IBN TALAL, KING OF THE
FRATERNAL HASHEMITE KINGDOM OF JORDAN: ON BEHALF OF
YOUR LIBYAN BROTHERS AND SISTERS WHO ARE STRUGGLING
AGAINST THE UNJUST BIG POWERS, AND IN MY OWN NAME, I
GREET YOU AND THE MINISTERS OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS,
HEALTH, AND INFORMATION IN THE FRATERNAL HASHEMITE
KINGDOM OF JORDAN FOR YOUR FIRM STAND AGAINST THE
STATE TERRORISM AND REPEATED AGGRESSION AGAINST
AL-RABITAH VILLAGE AND KHALIJ AL-BUMBAH AFTER THE
GULF OF SIDRA. THE AGGRESSION WAS DEFEATED THANKS TO
THE ARAB NATION'S UNIFIED STAND. THE FLEETS
RETREATED NOT BECAUSE OF AN EQUIVALENT LIBYAN
MILITARY FORCE, BUT BECAUSE OF AN INTERNATIONAL STAND
STEMMING FROM THE UNITY OF THE ARAB STAND. YOU HAVE
ADDED AN IMMORTAL AND SHINING EXAMPLE TO OUR ARAB
NATION'S CONTEMPORARY HISTORY. THIS EXAMPLE WOULD
NOT HAVE BEEN SET BY ONE HAND ONLY, BUT WAS SET BY
THE HANDS OF ALL OF YOU, BECAUSE THIS IS AN HONOR TO
ALL OF YOU. YOU HAVE RETURNED TO THE ARAB NATION ITS
PRESTIGE AND SOVEREIGNTY BEFORE THE WORLD, THANKS TO
THIS UNFORGETTABLE UNIFIED STAND. I HOPE WE WILL
PLEDGE AS FROM NOW TO ACHIEVE THE ARAB NATION'S UNITY
IN ALL FIELDS, ON ALL FRONTS, AND AT ALL BATTLES IN
THE ENTIRE ARAB HOMELAND. SIGNED: YOUR BROTHER,
COLONEL MU'AMMAR AL-QADHAFI. END TEXT.
