HASHEMITE COLLUSION AND REPRESSION
MID-EAST REALITIES - www.MiddleEast.org - Washington:
The Hashemite Regime of King Abdullah the Second is running more and
more scared; and for good reason.
After all, the collusion of this regime with the Israelis, going way
back to the beginning of the conflict, is among the major reasons the
Palestinian people have been so dispossessed and repressed for more than
half a century now. And indeed there are many, especially among the
majority of the Hashemite Kingdom's population of Palestinians, who would
like to see the regime fall, just as happened to the cousin Hashemite regime
in Baghdad many years ago.
Today's Ruler, Abdullah II, was installed in a modern-day CIA-inspired
and lead coup just before his father passed on. And especially in view of
the way Abdullah II is conducting himself, not to mention how he got to be
in charge in the first place, it would indeed be historical vindication if
he were at the least exiled to Great Britain, his mother's country, or to
the U.S., his patron.

Amman, Jordan - May 11, 2001
There is excessive violence being used at this moment by Jordanian
security troops against demonstrators in Al Mahata, Sweileh, and Al
Hashmi. Tanks, batons, and tear gas are being applied excessively to
peaceful demonstrators seeking to protest the establishment of
"Israel". These demonstrations have been called for by the Muslim
Brotherhood initially but many regular folks joined in. I have
eyewitness reports of excessive tear gas and women being beaten and
arrested in Al Hashimi. I have other eyewitness reports of excessive
violence used against demonstrators in Sweileh. The government had
warned that it would oppress demonstrations savagely, and you know as
far as that goes, Arab regimes always keep their word.
