Vice Chairman of Jordanian Parliament Endorses Al Qaeda Killing of Saddam Judge


Khalil Attieh has been variously listed as the Deputy House Speaker and Vice Chairman of the Jordanian parliament. When the judge who sentenced Saddam to death was murdered by Al Qaeda in Iraq (because Al Qaeda and the Baath Party are allies), he took to Facebook to express his happiness.

“Iraqi rebels arrested him and sentenced him to death in retaliation for the death of the hero martyr Saddam Hussein Abd al-Majid.”

Saddam Hussein was quite popular in Jordan, which despite its imported Hashemite monarchy, is one of the most anti-American places in the Middle East.

And that’s saying a lot.

Al Qaeda was popular there until Zarqawi decided to bomb a hotel. Now Al Qaeda in Iraq might be regaining some of its popularity.

Jordanian Arabs are much the same people as the so-called Palestinian Arabs and all of them identify more with a Greater Syria than with Jordan, which is why ISIS’ plans to go after the Jordanian monarchy have a great deal of potential.

    Jordan is on the ISIS target list and perhaps this porcine-like politician will soon be hanging with the rest of his ilk.

    Look, when they stuff his head and 25,000 other on pikes I will laugh.

    Of course, there would be no Jordan, if it wasn’t for Israel. It isn’t that Israel acted specifically to protect Jordan, but Jordan is a buffer area for Israel against Syria. Syria held back from attacking Jordan because it knew that Israel would act, if it did.

      Of course there would be no Jordan if it wasn’t for the british that partitioned the mandate in violation of the treaties.

      Israel is not responsible for Jordan to exist in the first place.

    I hope that King Abdullah has this man dragged out of his home and cut in pieces for everyone to watch.

      I hope King Abdullah holds firm against the ISIS.
