Jordan Again Blames Israel For Taking Out The Trash

Today, a Jordanian citizen visiting Israel decided his time would be best spent murdering some Jews. So he tried to do so – stabbing an Israeli police officer – and ended up pushing up daisies.

There is no doubt as to what occurred. It was caught on camera.

The police officer is lucky to have survived.

Yet check out the despicable response from Jordan:

Hours after the event, the Jordanian government said Israel was responsible for the slaying of one of its citizens.

“The Israeli government, as the occupying power in Jerusalem, bears responsibility for the shooting of a Jordanian civilian who was killed,” Hebrew media, quoting Jordan’s Minister of Communications Muhammad al-Mu’man, reported.

Jordan’s Foreign Ministry in Tel Aviv added it was following closely the details of the event, describing the incident as an “ugly crime.”

And it is not the first time. Remember this from last September?

Jordan has demanded a detailed explanation from Israel about the killing of a 28-year-old Jordanian by Israeli troops last week.

Israeli police have said Said Amro came out of a gate of Jerusalem’s Old City with a knife in each hand, shouted “God is Great” and rushed at officers before being shot dead.

The state news agency Petra says Jordan’s information minister met Monday at the Foreign Ministry with the Israeli ambassador to Jordan and asked for explanations.

I can’t say it much better than our Prime Minister:

“It is time that Jordan ceases its double sided game,” Netanyahu said.  “Just as Israel condemns terror attacks in Jordan, Jordan must condemn terrorist attacks in Israel. Terror is terror,” he added.

Terror is terror. But peace partners are not always peace partners.
