Jordanians Protest, Call to End Peace with Israel
Arutz Sheva ^ | 5/5/512 | Elad Benari

Thousands of Jordanians took to the streets on Friday demanding an end to the country‘s 18-year-old peace treaty with Israel.

According to a report by the dpa news agency, in a series of nationwide protests, demonstrators urged Amman to cut ties with the Jewish State.

The protesters burned Israeli flags and chanted “death, death to Israel”, the report said.

The protests took place in seven cities across the country, and the protesters urged authorities to expel the Israeli ambassador from Amman, chanting “no to a Zionist embassy on our land.”

Protest organizers, including the Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood and youth movements, told dpa the demonstrations came as a direct response to King Abdullah‘s recent nomination of Prime Minister Fayez Tarawneh, who served as a key figure in the 1994 Jordan-Israel peace process.

Where else in the world, other than Arabia, do people demand an end to peace?

Where?

It’s like something out of Gilbert & Sullivan, through-the-looking-glass parody.

I can see the slogans now: This peace is turning into a quagmire. How many more people will make a decent living and get a real education? How many more Pali teenage girls will marry someone they like and live to tell about it? Next they’ll start leaving Islam. Abdullah lied. Nobody died. Start the war now! Jordan get into Isra-nam!

Obummers fault. As much as most on Free Republic hate Romney, I don't see Bambi coming to Israel's defense when the crap hits the fan, and it will hit the fan.

This “popular protest” is just the Hamas rent-a-mob out earning its day’s wages.

All financed by elements of the Muslim Brotherhood.

You know, of course, that the Muslim Brotherhood has taken back its franchise it once extended to Al-Qaeda, and defunded them. Thus, the Al-Qaeda is “failing”, but the internal transfer of funding to the various rent-a-mobs in the Middle East is going on at a faster pace than ever.

It is only a matter of time before the internal structure of the Muslim Brotherhood begins to struggle between the Wahhabist Sunni and the Iranian-led Shi’ites. At the moment, the only thing uniting them is the shared hatred of the Israeli nation. At this point, they really cannot afford to lose Israel as the focus of their combined aggressiveness. While peace with Israel is not an option, neither is achieving any kind of victory.

Or the Muslim Brotherhood becomes a pact for mutual fraticide.

Just like the nazis, these vermin need to stop existing. Sadly, including the infected youth.

Islam is a death cult.

Death cults have no use for peace.

Islam is pain, suffering and enslavement wherever it goes.

This is the best scenario I can think of of that old saying : those who don’t learn history are bound to relive it. Jordan talked like this before and got their asses kicked bad in just a few hours when the sky fell on them.

A little clarity here. Over half of Jordan’s population are non-citizens, including 2m Paleos, 1m Iraqis, and several hundred thousand assorted guest workers. A minority of Bedouin rule them and the assorted citizen Jordanians of other types.

This really matters when the question arises of who was protesting. If they were non-citizens, then they were not Jordanians, even if they have lived there for a few generations.

Jordan has an ego that consistently “writes checks that its body can’t cash.”

To paraphrase patton:

Problem is (for us), Jordan has an allie they didn't have before.

Thanks for the ping. Jordan is a Psalm 83 participant.

Demented they are, when they get what they want,
Israel will end up taking the Sinai, half of Jordan,
Gaza and Half of Lebanon.

Then declare 2012 borders and say that’s it unless
you attack us again.

As a nod to the Sherman quote "War is Hell," I add this:

"If I had my choice I would kill every reporter in the world, but I am sure we would be getting reports from Hell before breakfast."
