Abstract This study reveals how style is employed in King Abdullah II of Jordan’s presidential speech before the members of European parliament in Strasbough, France. In his speech, the king employed simple sentence, compound sentence, complex sentence, and expanded sentence. Not any Metaphore and hyperbole were found in his speech. The speech was well organized and developed. The key words like Islam, Muslims, and Jordan were repeated for so many times to emphasize the message he wanted to convey through his speech. The king’s style in delivering his speech showed not only his character as a big-hearted man of a country but also a powerful substance of political forum the king used to describe how Islam actually is as a faith and persuade Europe and all nations to stop the global rise of Islamopobhia. Through the style the king used in his speech, King Abdullah II is able to convey his hidden ideology toward Islam globally and to persuade all nations to fight against Islamopobhia world wide. Key words: style, political speech
