Hashemite Collusion And Repression

By Ibrahim Alloush


from www.MiddleEast.org

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.

These updates about today's developments on both the East and West sides of the Jordan River in the area once known as The Holy Land and Palestine: (For more background see: http://www.MiddleEast.Org/jordan.htm).

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.
