Jordan plays host to Israel hate fest
Students and lawyers show off their hatred of Israel in violent displays of 'solidarity with the Palestinians' by stepping over Stars of David.
The Jordanian lawyers union held a rally in solidarity with the Palestinians on Tuesday in what could have easily been termed an Israel hate fest.

 

 

The lawyers drew blue stars of David on the ground in the hallways and stairs of Amman's courthouse, so that all those coming and going could have there chance to sully the Jewish symbol.

 

The lawyers were given one hour off, between 11am and 12pm, in order to take part in the show of hatred. Jordanian media outlets reported that the participants were yelling "death to Israel," and set fire to Israeli flags. The lawyers even condemned Israeli violations "perpetrated against the Palestinian population."

Thousands gathered at anti-Israel protests in Amman last Friday, where protesters set fire to Israeli flags and called for an end to the peace treaty between the countries and

called on the government to close the "Zionist" embassy in Amman.

 

Protests in solidarity with the Palestinians were held at 17 universities across the Hashemite Kingdom on that same day.

A mourner's tent was also erected overnight in Jordan in honor of Mouhand al-Okbi, the perpetrator of Sunday night's deadly attack at the Beer Sheva central bus terminal. The tent was put up by Bedouin tribes from the al-Okbi family in the city of Midba – south of Amman.

Jordan has denied cooperating with Israel in order to prevent an intifada in recent days, and a Jordanian government spokesman was quoted as saying that the kingdom would stand against "the attacks," and every attempt to change the status quo at the Al Aqsa mosque, adding that Amman would protect the holy sites.

Jordan has recently condemned Israel several times for its "attacks and Israeli violations in Jerusalem and Al Aqsa," as the spokesman termed them.
