Queen Rania of Jordan said at a news conference that the ISIS militant group is tarnishing the Islamic faith.

"This fight is a fight between the civilized world and a bunch of crazy people that really want to take us back to mediaeval times," she said in a public interview with Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington at the Future of Work conference in London.

"I would love to drop the first 'I' in ISIS because there’s nothing Islamic about them," she said. "They have nothing to do with faith and everything to do with fanaticism."

The Jordanian Queen said that the war against ISIS and other terrorist groups needs to be led by fellow Muslims.

Her husband, King Abdullah II, recently ordered airstrikes against the group in retaliation for them immolating Jordanian fighter pilot Lt. Muath al-Kasasbeh, who was captured by the group in December. She said that every time ISIS commits such atrocities they only strengthen the enmity of moderate Muslims such as herself.

"The scare tactics that these terrorists were using backfired because it just angered Jordanians," she said.

"We can’t let [ISIS] hijack our identity and brand us in the way that they want. We have to write our own narrative," she concluded.
