3. Because Jordan has been no friend
Edited on Sat Nov-29-08 11:38 PM by Truth2Tell
of the Palestinians. They have a lot of history to address before they lecture anyone else. Palestinians are still treated as second class citizens in Jordan and in many cases still live in unmitigated squalor behind barbed wire to keep them away from the decent Jordanian arabs. The U.S. has been complicit in this for 55 years incidentally.

Edit to add: Here's some slightly more recent info:

Let me also make very clear that I am not suggesting that the severity of treatment in Jordan in any way matches the atrocities committed by Israel.

I also think that Jordan's U.S. puppet regime threw the Palestinians under the bus at Camp David, but that's a whole tangential can of worms.
