There was a demonstration in Irbid, Jordan, to celebrate Hamas’ “victory” in Gaza.
Organized by the Islamic Movement, thousands attended. They chanted “We are all Hamas! We are all resistance!”
There were “fireworks, cheers and demands for the resistance to prepare for the next chapter in battle with the Zionist enemy to liberate Al-Aqsa Mosque from the clutches of the Jews.”
One speaker, Dr. Hammam Said, saluted the Qassam terror brigades, criticizing what he said was “a conspiracy of Arab rulers against our people in Gaza.”
UPDATE: From the comments.
We call on this blog to observe accuracy and not to buy into Jordan’s king’s propaganda games. The rally above was held under the supervision, facilitation and encouragement of the Jordanian king’s intelligence. The purpose of such rallies is to play the boogieman game against Israel and play on Israel’s fear factor, and this tactic has worked with well-intended people, such as many from AIPAC for example, who blindly believe that the minute “the king goes, the Islamist will take over”. This is not true, the rally above was held in a Bedouin-dominated area, no Palestinians in Irbid, the rally was attended by less than a thousand people, and such rallies in Amman almost failed and the Jordanian media even reported it. Get the facts, the fact here is: the Palestinian majority in Jordan still hates Israel, nonetheless, it hates Jordan’s king even more and hates the Islamists because they are his shameless ally in the open, he himself said: “The Muslim Brotherhood is a part of my regime”. Also, worth noting, why does Jordan king ban any secular rally or protests in Jordan, yet allows and facilities all Islamist rallies in Jordan?
