Remember Article 9! Who Will Protest?

I am referring to Article 9 of the Jordan-Israel Peace Treaty.

Is that treaty not a commitment, to be honored?

Are Article 9's elements to be discarded?

Let's read the official Jordanian news agency Petra:

300 extremist settlers storm Al-Aqsa Mosque
 Ramallah, Oct.10 (Petra)-- Some 300 extremist settlers early Tuesday stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque/Haram Al Sharif, according to a Palestinian source.

The General Director of the Islamic Awqaf and Al-Aqsa Affairs, Sheikh Azzam Al-Khatib, told Petra's reporter in Ramallah that Israeli settlers broke into the holy shrine from the Bab Al-Magharbeh gate under heavy protection of Israeli special forces and police.

Al-Khatib said that the settlers provocatively toured the Al-Aqsa yards.

Okay, that's Jordan's bad behavior.

But is there ever an Israeli protest?

From the Prime Minister?

The Deputy Foreign Minister?

Minister of Religious Affairs?

Chief Rabbis?




Jordan condemns renewed Israeli violations against Al Aqsa Mosque

Amman, Oct. 12 (Petra)--Jordan has condemned the renewed Israeli violations in Jerusalem, the last of which was the storming of Al Aqsa Mosque by settlers and Jewish extremists on the occasion of Jewish holidays.

State Minister for Media Affairs Mohammad Momani said that such irresponsible and rejected behaviors by Israeli authorities, constitute acts of provocation of Muslims' feelings.
