Israel Sees Jordan: Things are Not All Quiet on the Eastern Front

A recent Jordanian-Arab Palestinian agreement to prevent the Judaization of Jerusalem, and an overwhelming majority of the Jordanian parliament urging prison release for the mass murderer of Israeli schoolgirls, reveal things are not all quiet on the Eastern front.

Jordanian-Israeli ties fading?

Jordanian-Israeli ties fading?

And now the overwhelming majority of the elected government of Jordan have concluded that this mass murderer of young Israeli girls should be free.

According to a 2011 report, Jordan’s powerful Islamist movement and the country’s 14 trade unions have repeatedly called for Daqameseh’s release.

In 2001, Daqameseh’s mother publicly announced on an al Jazeera talk show, “I am proud of my son and hold my head high. My son did a heroic deed and has pleased Allah and his own conscience. My son lifts my head and the head of the entire Arab and Islamic nation. I am proud of any Muslim who does what Ahmed did… My son told me he has no regrets.”

In just over a decade it seems that the Jordanian parliament has come to agree with the mother of the mass murderer.

Somehow Israel’s southeasterly front looks far less stable than it has in a long time.

    Unfortunately the brief sunburst of a "rapprochement" between the less hardline Arab countries in the middle east and Israel appears to be fading…This is most unfortunate because it seems to be fueled by a more conservative and militant wave of clerical politicians as opposed to moderate secularist groups.

    Que mal…wao!….Have a nice weekend Samuel..

    Shabbat Shalom, Felix!

    Just viewed an article chronicling the life of Angelita Valdes Dublin of Yerushalayim. I see Yesha, including Yarden, as an opportunity to grow from decay to fruitful maturity: "For the first time in generations, we have active borders with neighborly upheaval." ~ Moshe.

  5. Eliyahu Enriquez Rivera says:

    It is my novice contention that the sun, as per Malachi ha'navi rises further east than the Hashemite Kingdom {neighborly upheaval should be considered a timely generational op for K'lal Yisra'el Hashleima}: "The shift from nationalist to religious disposition has realigned alliances, in some cases severing historic ties, between states and within." ~ Moshe

  6. The truth is that Jordan has been hostile from day one. It is still a death penalty offense to sell land to Jews in Jordan. That law has never changed.

    Jordan comprises 77.5% of our lands – and they survive on international aid only. They are welcome to it – but they need to take their colonists back to their own lands.

  7. Tensions on the Korean Peninsula and in Gaza are once again on the rise. Month by month, and week by week the middle east spins more out of control. Iran continues unwavering on it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons and Assad the dictator of Syria is still in power. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Assad of Syria looks like he may be willing to use weapons of mass destruction against his own people and against near by nations as well. If this situation does not drastically change soon for the better, I believe the war in Isaiah Chapter 17 will likely take place. Damascus Syria would be destroyed. The worlds economy would likely collapse as a result and could usher in a one world government movement. I wrote a small 6 page book that outlines what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.

  8. Yehuda Cohen says:

    We have a securlar non Torah following PM that frees Arab murderers of Israeli school children and we have a national Jewish Press media that supports Isalm which wants to take over the world; so, the standards/signals have been sent world wide that other countries will do the same. Hashem has set Israel and the light unto the world for setting moral standards; so, if we in Israel don't it, who will?

  9. Charlie Hall says:

    FWIW, Jordan has never recognized Israeli sovereignty over East Jerusalem. In fact, no country in the world does.

  10. Charlie Hall says:

    Have you read the Torah? "Ever HaYardein" — across the Jordan — is not part of the biblical land of Israel; two tribes were severely criticized for wanting to settle there and the rabbis concluded that is why they were the first to be exiled by the Assyrians.
