Jordan Says No to Kerry ‘Conspiracy’

The panic in Jordan has re-ignited tensions between Jordanians and Palestinians living in the kingdom. Some top Jordanian officials have been accused of making “racist” statements about Palestinians. One of them, retired general Riad Abu Karaki, called on his government to stop granting citizenship to children born to Jordanian women who are married to Palestinians. “Why aren’t the children of Jordanian mothers granted Palestinian citizenship of their fathers?” he asked. “The Palestinians have a recognized entity called the Palestinian National Authority.”

Kerry has managed to escalate tensions not only between Israel and the Palestinians, but also between Jordanians and the Palestinians inside Jordan. The growing tensions in Jordan pose a threat to stability in the kingdom and could easily undermine the only stable regime in the region. Kerry will now have to find a way to calm King Abdullah and his constituents before Jordan slips into civil war.

  1. The world is walking into a trap set up by the Creator. The Bible is still ahead of everyone else because this whole situation is discussed in detail by several prophets set apart from all others by Yahweh. Reality will soon sink in when the anointed king comes because he will wage war against all the nations that oppose his laws and he will destroy them that oppose him. It will be unlike any other. The strength the king of Israel holds will be like that of Moses before him. The USA should not be stepping on Israel because the land is ours for the taking back. Netanyahu needs to be courageous otherwise I will replace him because I’m not accepting this weak Israel deal. My people deserve better but they also need to step up to the plate of doing Torah.

  2. kissenger usedthe israeli militery as a security buffer for jordans defense.kerry just may have to come to bibi on his hands and knees to ask for israels’ help.

  3. kerry needs to go home and plant a garden,,he is not one for the world issue and no way for the Yisroel factor!!!

  5. I applaud Jordan and it's King. DO NOT DO ANYTHING WITH THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION – they destroy, maim or ruin "everything they touch". Ask us, America is in a "death spiral" from these evil leaders.

    Recommend Western Iraq for the PA Arab
    extension. Western Jordanian border of Jordanians…

  7. Simply put, Kerry is merely the mouthpiece of President Obama. Sadly the president is merely trying to reverse the good done by Bush; namely Israel has the right to defend herself. Obama's actions will only put Israel at more risk . The Islamic world has not changed one iota in it's efforts to destroy Israel and the Jew.

  8. As I have said repeatedly, anything that Kerry or the boy king say or do is all controlled by the drive to turn the entire middle east into a muslim state ruled and totally controlled by radical muslim leaders following the strict muslim "law". Any agreement that these two push is bad for Israel and the entire middle east and America also. The America people as a whole do not support or respect the actions or talk of these to fools so please do not judge Americans or America by their actions or comments. Kerry and the boy king are truly dangerous, please beware of them and their ideas. If you value Israel at all you will not support them in any way.

    Kerry & Obama "speak of peace" while spreading chaos & death……

  10. WOW! The Saudi Abdullah, with the help of the Brits stole their country from both the Jews and the non-Beduins.

  11. WOW!!! Wonder why we have not heard this on TV news….hhhmmm??? Whoohoo for Jordan's King and their people. It takes courage to stand up to bullying US politicians that have sunken to sacrificing anyone for their won agenda. Very sad to say but it's true. I'm embarrassed for our nation.

  12. I'm still laughing and applauding Jordan…………….

  13. The King is in survival mode, not making a heroic stand against Obama's foreign policies. Many of us don't realize that other countries have their own issues they're dealing with and they have a right to protect their own best interests like we do. Sometimes, it's not about us. It's not about US.

    And to be honest, when we get past our differences and the imaginary lines we've used to carve up the world, we may have a chance, as a species, to walk out from the shadows and the ashes that would have buried us if we were to face the future challenges alone. We don't have a snowball's chance as we are though. The King isn't the only one in survival mode…all of us are an endangered species, but most of us don't know it yet.

    you know why its not on news because they don't want to be fired or lose their jobs and they don't care they hide the news to keep the truth from being known and that's the devils work he is using them now for his dark forces at work. and I am sure of this john Kerry is an evil one now being used by the devil who know him as satan yes its true I can see it clearly. I am glad king Abdullah stood up and spoke out against him Kerry has already committed serious malicious conspiracy there and is telling u.s. senators do not listen to Israel about iran he is now brainswashing u.s. and its soon gonna boil over and we will be fighting these evil people in Washington. but don't worry god will take care of it, if you love Israel and support Israel then you are okay god will bless you for it. evil will never triumph at all I am sure of that for sure. America is gonna be soon hit with bad things to come because of Washington DC being evil. its already gonna hit with bad storms floods and all that terrible things because of Obama and Kerry and joe biden Vice pres of u.s. all evil America will be punished for listening to Washington DC lies and and bad mouthing about things.

While there is no formula that will work for everyone, there are some strategies that if followed carefully and consistently can help our children – and us – gain the most from the upcoming school year.

Hamas seems to have reached the conclusion that the reconciliation pact with Abbas will not do it any good.

The dispute over money between Hamas and Fatah shows that each group signed the reconciliation agreement for its own interests.

While they continue to hate Israel and seek its destruction, many Arabs admire the independence of Israel’s judicial system.

The Palestinian Authority has jailed more than 350 Arabs for “security” reasons in just 2014.

Kerry has literally been “begging” Abbas to agree to the extension of the peace talks.

Abbas and the Arab leaders thumb their noses at U.S. conditions, instead they set their own.

Even if Abbas is forced — under U.S. Pressure and threats — to make concessions, the Palestinians will not “relinquish their rights.”
