Crossing Jordan

"Whoever justifies terror acts or instigates them is a partner in the crime, and we will never accept anyone who defends any ideology that supports violence and harming innocent people," --King Abdullah II

Sound familiar? Like, maybe, "either you're with us or you're against us"? Call it silver-lining but the blasts at the hotels in Jordan have roused the anger of Jordanians against terror. Leading to comments like the king told CNN: "I can tell you that we Jordanians, we get mad and we get even, and these people will be brought to justice."

Well, its not like they're waving American flags though, here are some other comments that I find a smidgen of irony in:

I am not ashamed of what his group is doing fighting the US occupation of Iraq, but killing civilians, killing Muslims here in Jordan is shaming.

By killing Jordanians here in Jordan, civilian Jordanians going to a wedding, they did something that not even a Jew would do...

At least they're mad at the right people--or maybe just more angry at them now than us.
