Haaretz newspaper has retracted the report, now stating that the guests were evacuated after the bombing.


www.haaretz.com
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.

Now that is Strange...

3 Hotels that are FAVOURITE among the Western and Israeli guests, and only few of them got killed? Now what did Al-Zarqawi think here? He should know better when targetting such Hotels!



Excellent Catch wecomeinpeace!

Makes you really think TWICE doesn't it?

Half of the Victims were Palestitinan - why would Zarqawi want to kill his Allies in this war against the Zionistic and US occupation of Middle East?

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

Two Words:
BLACK OPS.

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


IF the Mossad had suspicions of an upcoming terrorist attack ..
IF they did ... then it's simply because they can do their job and
gather intelligence far better than the rest of the world.

You obviously missed this followup post by wecomeinpeace. That disinfo has been debunked. Took me about 5 minutes to debunk it yesterday.


No Black Ops here. Move along, nothing to see here.:

souljah,
look at the post above. the israeli newspaper has retracted their statement that israelis were given prior warning.
as for the al-queda link that you are so desperately trying to deny:



Nov 11, 2005 — DUBAI (Reuters) - An Iraqi married couple and two other men carried out the suicide bombings at three hotels in the Jordanian capital Amman which killed 57 people this week, al Qaeda in Iraq said in an Internet statement on Friday.
"A group of martyrdom-seekers carried out the planning and implementation. They comprised three men and a woman who decided to accompany her husband on the path to martyrdom," said the statement posted on a site often used by the al Qaeda in Iraq.
"It was agreed to use suicide belts for precision and to cause maximum damage," the statement said.
"The attackers managed to enter the targets bypassing all the security measures that the agent of the British, the treacherous (King) Abdullah, has always boasted about."
The statement said they were all Iraqis and gave their names.
emphasis mine

zakawi is doing his very best to take credit for this tragedy. If he and his group are not responsible... then how do they have the NAMES of the bombers already???????

The statement said they were all Iraqis and gave their names.

At least 57 people were killed and 96 wounded when suicide bombers struck three hotels in Amman on Wednesday night. Most of the casualties were civilians attending wedding ceremonies.

On Thursday, the group led by Jordanian militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi claimed to have carried out the attacks, saying the hotels were used by American and Israeli spies.

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.


This simply makes no logical sense. According to reports, the Jordanians have now recovered the bodies of the suicide bombers and no Israeli gov't project would use suicide bombers. Plus, why would Israel risk war with one of the few Arab countries they have good relations with? Believe me, if there was any evidence whatsoever that Israel did this, Jordan would not it cover up. And motivation? To kill one Palestinian Authority official? Again, makes no sense. Why not just wait until he's back in the Palestinian terroritory and "accidently" hit him with a missile?

Israel had nothing to do with these attacks.

Names of the suicide bombers. They used suicide vest bombs to "more precisely strike" the selected targets. And Al Qaeda renewed its threat to strike Israel directly... "their wall that was built to the east of the Jordan river… is now a target for the lions of al-Tawheed"


The Counterterrorism Blog: Zarqawi's Al-Qaida Faction Offers More Details Behind Amman Suicide Blasts

In its latest message, Al-Qaida identified the four bombers as all Iraqi nationals: terror cell commander Abu Khabib al-Iraqi (responsible for the attack on the Radisson Hotel), Abu Muaz al-Iraqi (responsible for the attack on the Hyatt Hotel), Abu Omaira al-Iraqi, and his wife Umm Omaira (jointly responsible for the attack on the Days Inn). The statement indicated that suicide vest bombs were chosen over traditional vehicle-borne explosive devices in order to "more precisely strike" the selected targets. Al-Qaida also renewed its threat to strike directly at neighboring Israel: "“Let the Jews realize that their wall that was built to the east of the Jordan river… is now a target for the lions of al-Tawheed and soon they [the Jews] will be reached by the mujahideen."

ZARQA, Jordan, Nov. 11 - The Maktoum Mosque was crowded with worshipers for Friday Prayer as the imam sharply criticized the suicide attacks on three hotels in Amman, saying those who committed the crimes were not Muslims, no matter what they called themselves.



New York Times

ZARQA, Jordan, Nov. 11 - The Maktoum Mosque was crowded with worshipers for Friday Prayer as the imam sharply criticized the suicide attacks on three hotels in Amman, saying those who committed the crimes were not Muslims, no matter what they called themselves.

Afterward, on the street, people agreed that whoever committed such an act could not be a Muslim. But many meant this literally, that the attack must have been carried out by outsiders, namely Israeli agents.

"Who said it is them?" asked Ahmed al-Zawahrah, referring to claims that members of a radical Islamic group were behind the blasts. "It could be Israel."

While most Arabs have long viewed Israel as their enemy, the extent to which Israel weighs on the regional psyche and diverts attention away from social, political, religious and economic issues that cannot be ignored, many social and political analysts say. Blaming Israel is not just a knee jerk, they say; for many Arabs, it is their reality.

"People don't blame Israel out of a vacuum," said Rami Khoury, a Jordanian political commentator and writer based in Lebanon. "There is a very strong historical reason, because Israel has caused a lot of grief for Arab people one way or another."

"You have to understand, Baghdad was the capital for Arabs and Muslims for 1,000 years," Mr. Masri said. "It is occupied by Americans now. Jerusalem and Baghdad are both occupied. It is too much for ordinary people to bear. If you add to it the misery that people are facing because of the lack of democracy and humiliation by their rulers, that kind of scapegoat we have to have."

Interesting Piece of News in NWP.

As I said in my posts before - it is just TOO EASY to create a so-called "Terrorist Attack today":

Just set up a Bomb, blow it up, and then Blame the Islamic Terrorists.

Easy as 1-2-3.

I think you mised the point of that editorial Souljah.
They said that the muslims are using Israel as a scapegoat because of other problems that the muslims are faced with.

BTW, I think it'll be funny when people start demanding that muslims end the occupation of Christian lands like Constantinople and Cyprus.

Yes they do blame Israel out of a vacuum. No matter what happens
it is Israel's fault in their eyes. They have to have a scape goat because
they can't see the truth of their failures before them. Heck, many of
them still believe that no muslims were involved in the 9/11 terrorist
attacks even though the evidence is overwhelming. They still think it
was Israel that pulled it off and blamed them.


Oh .. and a note to Rami Khoury - Muslims have caused a lot of grief
to Israelies as well. Your hands are not clean.

Like I said ... that's because they can't admit the truth of the situation.
They never blame fellow muslims for these things. They still won't
admit that 9/11 was carried out by MUSLIMS.

Just because people mill around in a street and disavow any culpability
for people of their religion doesn't make it so.

People can say what ever they want.
The facts remain. Those people who
killed were Muslims, not Jews.

I didn't miss it Souljah.
As the editorial said, they are looking for a scapegoat. Just like you are looking to play it off as an attack by Israelis. You don't want to believe that muslims are killing muslims but they are.

Deputy Prime Minister Marwan Muasher identified each of the terrorists

  • Ali Hussein Ali al-Shamari, from Anbar

  • Rawad Jassem Mohammed Abed, 23

  • Safaa Mohammed Ali, 23.

    Al-Shamari's wife was identified as Sajida Mubarak Atrous al-Rishawi, 35, who is also the sister the slain former militant Mubarak Atrous al-Rishawi (al-Zarqawi's former righthand man in Iraq's volatile Anbar province, who was killed by US forces in Fallujah)




    Muasher said the four crossed into Jordan from Iraq by car on Nov. 4, five days before the bombings, and rented a furnished apartment the middle-class Tlaa' Ali suburb in western Amman.

    The four left their apartment on Wednesday - the day of the attacks - took taxis to their targets, the Radisson SAS, Grand Hyatt and Days Inn hotels.

    Al-Shamari and his wife, both dressed as they were going to a party, entered a ballroom where a wedding reception was being held at the Radisson hotel wearing explosives belts under their clothes to "inflict the largest number of casualties," Muasher said.

    The would-be woman bomber failed to detonate her explosives belt after apparently struggling with its primer cord, Muasher said.

    Noticing the woman struggling with the bomb, Muasher said: "Her husband pushed her out of the ballroom. Once she was out he blew himself up."

    The bomber used the powerful explosive RDX also packed with ball bearings to kill as many people as possible, Muasher said.

    It was unclear where police arrested the woman, who will make a televised confession on state-run TV later Sunday.

    Apparently the caught would-be suicide bomber is now in Jordanian custody and is singing like a bird about Zarqawi's operations.

    How Sad RIP Mr Halloween


    www.news.com.au...
    SYRIA gave a hero's burial today to Moustapha Akkad, the local-born Hollywood producer killed with his daughter in Wednesday's Amman hotel bombings.
    Mr Akkad is best known internationally as producer of the Halloween horror films, but is most famous in the Arab world for directing a film about early Islam and another about a leader of the Libyan resistance against Italian occupation.
    President Bashar al-Assad signed a decree awarding Mr Akkad one of Syria's top medals for "his Arab nationalist stances".
    Mr Akkad and his daughter Reem were among 57 people who died when three suicide bombers blew up luxury hotels in the Jordanian capital on Wednesday, attacks claimed by al-Qaeda in Iraq.

    A fourth American has died from wounds sustained in last week's triple hotel bombings.

    Uruk Net

    A story appearing on the CBC World News website this afternoon reveals additional details about the Amman hotel bombings and shoots a big hole in the official story, as pimped by the corporate media. A security official, who will likely be demoted if his identity is revealed, told the Associated Press that "lights in sections of both the Radisson and Hyatt hotels went out just before the near simultaneous blasts in—apparent—co-ordinated fashion…. A DJ at the Radisson, where a Jordanian-Palestinian wedding reception was bombed, also recalled how the ballroom where the party was being held mysteriously descended into darkness.
    [size=+1]'The lights at the wedding hall went off seconds, maybe just one second, before the blast, although there was electricity outside the room in the corridor, the nearby lobby area and the reception. For some reason, I looked to my right in the darkness and saw what looked liked lightening, then there was a loud boom. It felt like the explosion came from the ceiling, then people started running out,’"

    So here we have an eye witness confirming the photographic evidence—the explosion occurred above hotel drop ceilings. It also appears somebody deliberately switched off the lights, although we are told all the terrorists, with the exception of Sajida Mubarak al-Rishawi, died in the blasts. No explanation is provided how the suicide terrorists managed to accomplish this feat. No doubt these two details will find their way to the memory hole soon enough—or a lame explanation will be dreamed up and provided to the corporate media.

    It is now obvious the Amman hotel bombings were a black op executed by Mossad, British intelligence, or the American military, or it was a collaborative effort of all three (suspicion, however, falls on the Israelis, since they have plenty of experience with these sort of operations, from the Lavon Affair in the early 50s onward).
    [size=+1]Although we are told by the Bush echo chamber corporate media this was an al-Zarqawi terrorist event—specifically targeted at Jews and the Jordanian government—the fact is the targets consisted of affluent Arab wedding guests, Palestinian officials, a delegation of Chinese military officials, and an Arab-American movie producer.
    It appears Akkad, a more or less well-known American, was specifically targeted (he was "sized up" by Mohammed), thus sensationalizing the attack (few here in America seem to care when poor Iraqis or Arabs are the victims of such attacks). It cannot be disputed—although the American corporate media can ignore—the fact the bombs were placed in the ceiling. If indeed Rawad Jassem Mohammed and his cohorts were present, they did not carry bombs (it is possible they were strapped with belts they believed contained explosives). Sajida Mubarak al-Rishawi is little more than a malleable patsy thrown in the mix to add a further and frightening dimension to the Arab terrorist archetype—now we cannot trust Arab women.

    Now this Story is getting more Twiste by the Days.

    First the Haaretz Reports something - and then Pulls it back: how the Isreali Guests from the Hotels were Evacuated.

    The Casualties were MAINLY Palestinian - including a Senior Palestinian Intelligence Officer.

    There is ALOT of Evidence that the Bombs were hidden in the Ceilings.

    AND NOW, the News how the LIGHTS WENT OUT prior to Explisions?

    You wan't to Tell me that the Terrorists were Capable of doing all of that by Themselves?

    Aha, Ofcourse.

    Ever heard some one say after the guy next door was arrested for being a serial killer, 'But he was such a nice guy, I can't believe he did all those horrible things!" It seems to me that Muslems are in a state of denial. Muslems just couldn't be killing muslems, it's against Allah. So if Muslems couldn't being doing it then it has to be Israeli or Americans. Thats like me going to the fridge to get a corona and noticing they are all gone, then hollering at my macaw 'Pedro' for drinking 'em when the empty bottles are lying everywhere but in his birdcage. Even Pedro sees through this one, he was on my computer desk reading the thread then pooped all over my keyboard. Nuff said!
