Jordan is a moderate Muslim country.
But it's not exactly surprising. This would be the Jordanian parliament which fought any effort to criminalize honor killings and which called for the release of a Jordanian soldier who murdered seven Israeli teenage girls. With good reason. Jordan was the original "Palestine".
After the brutal murder of four Rabbis, this story via Elder of Ziyon comes as no surprise at all.
On Wednesday, Jordan's parliament offered a prayer in honor of the spirit of Ghassan Abu Jamal and Uday Abu Jamal - the terrorists who slaughtered five people.
The prayer was held as the House of representatives session opened.
MP Khalil Attieh requested his fellow representatives to recite the Fatiha for the "spirit of the heroes."
The Fatiha is the first chapter of the Koran, recited on important occasions.
Attieh further declared that the murders were a "natural reaction to the occupation crimes against the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Palestinians."
In addition, MP Mohammed Al-Qatathh of the House of Representatives issued a statement to the assembly condemning the "Zionist attack on Jerusalem and its people" in the wake of "the heroic operation" on the synagogue in Har Nof.
By heroic operation, Mohammed means that two men with guns and butcher knives attacked a group of unarmed men praying from behind. They hacked to death a 59-year-old Rabbis and a number of other older Rabbis.
The world has not seen such heroism since Mohammed sent a blind man to murder a female poet while she was sleeping with her child.
Truly the Jordanian parliament was right to honor two lions of the Jihad so courageous that they dared attack an old man praying from behind. I'm sure Allah gave them double the virgins.
