Maybe now the people of Jordan will see AQ for what it really is. According to early reports more than just Americans were killed. Perhaps someday the ME will open its eyes and see that AQ is nothing but murdering scum.

I'm watching Fox news right now,and a reporter on the scene is saying that spontaneous demonstrations are springing up. Crowds are chanting "Death to Zarqawi" and "Zarqawi, burn in hell."


They see him for what he is now. And Jordan is his birthplace. Killing his own people.

www.haaretz.com...

From the link you supplied:

No truth to report of Israeli evacuations before Amman bombs
There is no truth to reports that Israelis staying at the Radisson SAS hotel in Amman on Wednesday were evacuated by Jordanian security forces before the bombing that took place there.

The Israelis were escorted back to Israel by Jordanian security personnel only after the attacks had taken place, contrary to earlier reports.

Emphasis added

This scum bag is the one that said it is okay to kill muslems, women and children if they get in way of jihad. He is the lowest form of scum on the earth. There has to be a special place in Hell for people like this.

Protesters rejected the idea that the explosions were carried out to protect Islam. Groom Ashraf al-Akhras, whose wedding was wrecked by one blast said, "The world has to know that this has nothing to do with Islam."

Jordan is calling this it's 9/11, finally a muslem country is speaking out against this sort of lunacy.

Since Iraq's al-Qaeda said on Thursday it had carried out the bomb attacks in Jordan,

Zarqawi's Jordanian Agenda is interesting:



Zarqawi was involved in a plot to target hotels frequented by Jewish and American tourists in Amman during millennial celebrations.

In October 2002, Zarqawi planned and facilitated the assassination of U.S. diplomat Lawrence Foley in Amman.

One of Zarqawi's most successful operations targeting Jordanian interests was the bombing of the Jordanian Embassy in Baghdad in August 2003.

In April 2004, Jordanian officials announced they had thwarted a major plot to attack various locations in Amman, including the Jordanian General Intelligence Department (GID) Headquarters, the Prime Ministry, and the U.S. Embassy.
Jordanian authorities maintain that the twenty tons of explosives intended for the multiple coordinated attacks contained more than ninety-two chemicals and would have resulted not only in a large explosion but a chemical cloudd [...] the bomb had the potential to injure 160,000 people.

Listened to the Jordanian minister this morning. Quite upset
with CNN's reporter suggesting security was lax. Just think
how lax we are in our own hotel's. I do want to say that
our founding fathers had to fight for our rights and freedoms.
No other country did that for us. Yes, France helped some, but
we did the winning! For all this terrorist stuff to stop the
Arab community needs to step up to the plate and fight and
take back their lives and frankly the good name of their
Islamic religion.

Jordan is exactly the kind of country that al-Qaeda would especially enjoy targeting. It is a Muslim nation that does not subscribed to its nasty misinterpretation of Islam..

This article goes into the Hashemite aspect of the bombings.
They weren't bombings necessarily because of Iraq, etc.

Calling Amman the "backyard garden for the enemies of the religion," Al Qaeda in Iraq claimed responsibility for three homicide bomb attacks on Western hotels in the Jordanian capital that killed at least 56 people and injured at least 115 others.

So it spreads. Instead of just killing westerners now it is ok to kill anyone that does not agree with their correct version of their religion.

They were walking into the wedding hall when a young man with an explosive belt stepped in among them and blew himself up. How does this
glorify Allah? What is the purpose of such barbarism? How can you possibly justify this kind of carnege?

What should have been the happiest day of their lives turns into their worse nightmare as thier family and friends are blown up before thier eyes.
Unbelievable!

The US intelligence apparatus has created it own terrorist organizations. And at the same time, it creates its own terrorist warnings concerning the terrorist organizations which it has itself created. In turn, it has developed a cohesive multibillion dollar counterterrorism program "to go after" these terrorist organizations.



Counterterrorism and war propaganda are intertwined. The propaganda apparatus feeds disinformation into the news chain. The terror warnings must appear to be "genuine". The objective is to present the terror groups as "enemies of America."

The propaganda campaign presents the portraits of the leaders behind the terror network. In other words, at the level of what constitutes an "advertising" campaign, "it gives a face to terror." The "war on terrorism" rests on the creation of one or more evil bogeymen, the terror leaders, Osama bin Laden, Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, et al, whose names and photos are presented ad nauseam in daily news reports.

Often the CNN report is based on information published on an Islamic website or a mysterious Video or Audio tape. The authenticity of the website and/or the tapes is not the object of discussion or detailed investigation.

Bear in mind that the news reports never mention that Al Qaeda is a creation of the CIA and that Al Zarqawi had been recruited to fight in the Soviet-Afghan war (This is in fact confirmed by Sec. Colin Powell in his presentation to the UN Security Council on 5 February 2003) (see details below). Both Osama bin Laden and Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi are creations of the US intelligence apparatus. The recruitment of foreign fighters was under the auspices of the CIA.

Well - lets Not Forget that this IS a CONSPIRACY Website, and that event such as this one, should provoke us and make us think about the REAL face of Al-Qaeda and its Leaders. So, if you ask me, this is a Product of "OTHER" Agencies, that Control or Manipulate Al-Qaeda. Ofcourse, the Press has the Duty to Demonize and to Create the Face of Terror so that the People will Recognize that Face everywhere.

Just a Thought.

Everybody knows that bin Laden fought against the Russians and that the US funded him for awhile. This is old news and not even interesting, much less relevant, anymore. It is well known that bin Laden hated the US even as he accepted their checks; in fact he hates all westerners that he deems as imperious enough to set foot on "his" holy lands.

We all know that it is sometimes necessary to handle vile-smelling, toxic chemicals in order to cure cancer. Think of our past dealings with Usama in that context.

However, Souljah, when you post stuff like this:

I have to come right out and ask you:

Are you implying that the CIA, Mossad, or MI-6 had anything to do with the bombings in Amman?

A simple yes or no will do.

Apparently they bombed these hotels because they were used by intelligence forces and "spies"...


The Counterterrorism Blog: Zarqawi's Al-Qaida Faction Claims Amman Blasts, Promises More Attacks in Jordan


In an initial statement posted early this morning, Al-Qaida's Committee in Iraq announced that members of its Al-Baraa bin Malik "Martyrs" Brigade had carried out the attacks on "hotels used by the Jordanian tyrants as a garden for the Jews and Christians—the enemies of Islam... and as a secure base for infidel intelligence forces who are conspiring against the Muslims." Al-Qaida further warned that "the wall protecting the Jews that was built in eastern Jordan—along with the secret training camp for the crusader army and the government of Iraq—have become targets for the mujahideen." A second statement released by Al-Qaida later in the day expanded on the rationale behind the hotel bombings:

"They had become the preferred locations for intelligence forces—especially the Americans, the Israelis, and some Western European nations—where they fight their secret campaign in the so-called war against terrorism. These [forces] are joined by the secret services of Egypt and the Palestinian Authority, and Saudi intelligence—in addition to the intelligence department of the Jordanian tyrant. It is where they conspire how to destroy the mujahideen in Palestine, Mesopotamia, and the Arabian Peninsula... The hotels] have also become secure secret bases for… meetings of the apostate government, including [Shiites] and... the apostate Iyad Allawi—who the Crusaders are preparing for the new ‘Dayton’ conspiracy by forming an alliance with the fools amongst the Sunnis."

The LA Times cites Israels Haaretz newspaper as reporting that Israeli guests at the hotel received prior warning and were evacuated back to Israel before the bombings took place.


www.latimes.com
The Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported that Israelis staying at the Radisson on Wednesday had been evacuated before the attacks and escorted back home "apparently due to a specific security threat."

Amos N. Guiora, a former senior Israeli counter-terrorism official, said in a phone interview with The Times that sources in Israel had also told him about the pre-attack evacuations.

"It means there was excellent intelligence that this thing was going to happen," said Guiora, a former leader of the Israel Defense Forces who now heads the Institute for Global Security Law and Policy at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. "The question that needs to be answered is why weren't the Jordanians working at the hotel similarly removed?"

Yet more implications of Mossad prior knowledge. I hope this isn't true. What's going on here?

And again, the al-Qaeda claim of responsibility was simply a statement on the Internet.


uk.news.yahoo.com
The statement, which could not be immediately verified, was signed by al Qaeda's spokesman in Iraq and posted on an Islamist site usually used by the group.

It said Iraq's al Qaeda, led by Jordanian militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, would later give more details about the attacks, but did not say if they were carried out by suicide bombers.

Half of the victims were Palestinian, including Palestinian officials and the chief of Palestinian intelligence.


cnn.netscape.cnn.com
The bombings at three hotels in Amman on Wednesday night killed at least 56 people, including 27 Palestinians with roots in the West Bank. Among the victims were members of the Akhras clan who were attending a family wedding, the West Bank's intelligence chief, Maj. Gen. Bashir Nafeh, a diplomat and a prominent banker.

Hmm...

It almost sounds like Isreal is behind the bombings in Jordan... I wouldn't put it past them, it really does help the allied cause by making an islamic nation come out against terrorism. I wouldn't put it past anyone at this point.
