Democracy Verboten! Voting is an “imitation of the kuffar (infidels)”

Jordan:  “Democracy is Forbidden in Islam”–by Khaled Abu Toameh

“Government should be only in the hands of Allah.”

Not sure what the plucky little king has to say about that.

Why are radical Muslims opposed to the upcoming parliamentary election in Jordan?

Because they believe that democracy is in contradiction with Islam’s concept of the sovereignty of Allah’s law. They argue that Islam and democracy cannot go together, and they are obviously right, especially if one considers the experiences of people living under Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Saudi cleric says elections are forbidden

(Gee, who would have thought people have the same idea in Sowdi Barbaria?)

Elder of Ziyon
Saudi cleric Sheikh Abdul Rahman bin Nasser Al-Barrak has forbidden democracy.He said “the system of elections is a corrupt system that is not legitimate for Muslims… It is an exotic idea from the enemies of Islam because of their occupation of their land.”

A Jordanian man was charged on Wednesday with killing his divorced sister after stabbing her and driving his truck over her body several times because of her alleged “suspicious behavior,” police said.

AP explains:  Murder is punishable by death in Jordan, but in so-called “honor killings,” courts can commute or reduce sentences, particularly if the victim’s family asks for leniency. (AP)

Muslim Brotherhood "Day of Rage" Scares Jordan

Everywhere the same song and dance:

“We demand social justice and freedom”- (translated:  we want sharia and the freedom to spread Islam by the sword)

Muslim Brotherhood tries to spin popular protests into advantage for pro-Sharia forces

This is similar to what is going on in Tunisia. “In Jordan, Islamists try to spin popular protests into political uprising,” by Taylor Luck in the Christian Science Monitor, via JW

Arab News thanks to TT

More than 5,000 people from across the political spectrum, including the powerful Muslim Brotherhood, the left wing groups and the trade unions staged Friday what they called a “Day of Rage” in the Jordanian capital of Amman and in the northern town of Irbid.

They demanded Prime Minister Samir Rifai step down and for Jordanians to be able to elect their prime minister and other ministers rather than having them appointed by King Abdallah.

Streets protests have mounted over the past week, spurred on by Tunisia’s example, and despite government moves to lower the prices on basic goods and fuel. “(Prime Minister Samir) Rifai, out, out! People of Jordan will not bow,” protesters chanted as they marched from Al-Hussein Mosque in central Amman to the nearby municipality building. “Our demands are legitimate. We want bread and freedom.”

Fallout from the Tunisian “Jasmine Revolution,” which the Islamic supremacists are claiming as a victory. Pro-Sharia forces all over are hailing the events in Tunisia, because they know that genuine democratic rule will result in their victory, since the Tiny Minority of Extremists actually enjoys broad popular support. “Islamists in Jordan protest authoritarian rule,” from Reuters, January 17 (thanks to JW):

Islamists in Jordan, emboldened by protests in Tunisia that forced out the long-serving president, called on Sunday for an end to what they called authoritarian rule in their country.

QUEEN OF JORDAN: HONOR MURDERS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ISLAM…….

Thanks to the Tundra Tabloids:

QUEEN OF JORDAN: HONOR MURDERS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ISLAM…….

The real problem here is not that Jordans media darling, Oprah friend Queen Rania, denies and lies; that is to be expected. The scandal is that Islamo=propagandist Christiane Ammanpour deliberately spreads falsehood and nonsense.  She should be called out on this, and exposed as the overrated crock & schlock journo that she is.

Ammanwhore gets schmoozed by the Queen of Jordan

Now wait a minute: the mainstream media has told us, whenever an honor killing has taken place in North America or Europe, that honor killing is a cultural practice that has nothing to do with Islam — despite the fact that Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide. What’s more, a manual of Islamic law certified as a reliable guide to Sunni orthodoxy by Al-Azhar University, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, says that “retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right.” However, “not subject to retaliation” is “a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.” (‘Umdat al-Salik o1.1-2).

In other words, someone who kills his child incurs no legal penalty under Islamic law. Nonetheless, the media drumbeat is constant: honor killings have nothing to do with Islam. And so if honor killings have nothing to do with Islam, why should  Muslim Women think that a law against honor killing have anything to do with them?

Islamic terrorists attack police car, 3 wounded, one dead

Pali terrorists attack  IDF near Hebron

Y-net News

One policeman was killed and three others were injured Monday morning as Palestinians opened fire at a police car near the West Bank settlement of Beit Hagai. The officers were making their way to Hebron from the southern city of Beersheba.

‘Victims of Bibi and Barak’s policy’

South Mount Hebron Council Head Zviki Bar Hai said the attack was prompted by the removal of roadblocks in the West Bank, which he said only increased terror. “The policemen are the victims of Bibi (Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu) and (Defense Minister Ehud) Barak’s calculated prevention policy.”

Yehuda Glick, spokesperson for the nearby community of Otniel, added that “those who opened the Dahariya roadblock only three weeks ago, knowing that the place served as a shelter for terrorists, should not be surprised that the terrorists took advantage of their innocence.”

The Yesha Council said in response that “the security cooperation with the Palestinians, imposed by the political echelon on the IDF in Judea and Samaria in general, and in the Hebron area in particular, cannot provide security. This is costing lives for the police, the IDF and Israel’s residents.”

The last deadly attack on a West Bank road took place in December 2009, when 40-year-old Rabbi Meir Avshalom Hai of Shavei Shomron was shot from a passing vehicle. He was seriously wounded in his head and was proclaimed dead shortly afterwards.

In March 2009, two policemen were killed in a shooting attack in the Jordan Valley. Their killers have yet to be captured.

Jordan King Says Unilateral Action Could Ignite Jerusalem ” Tinderbox”

Sheik yer’mami sez: no Arabs, no tinderbox….

Update: “Jerusalem Tense as Arab Leaders Visit Disputed Holy Site,” by Robert Berger for the Voice of America, October 7, JW

Jewish officials say Arab and Palestinian leaders are deliberately inciting violence during the Feast of Tabernacles. Elisha Peleg is a member of the Jerusalem City Council. “It is well organized,” Peleg alleges. “They know when to increase the riots and where to make the riots; and unfortunately, our neighbors do not like to see us very much celebrating and praying to our God.”

Perfectly in line with what Robert reminds us about restrictions on dhimmis here.

MIDEAST JORDAN

Amman, Oct.8(Petra – Jordan news agency)

His Majesty King Abdullah demanded that Israel stop all unilateral actions that threaten holy sites in Jerusalem and the identity of the holy city. (Jerusalem is holy for Jews.  Since it is not mentioned once in the Koran,  it means nothing to Muslims/ed)

He warned that such actions threaten to destabilise not only Israel’s
relationship with Jordan, which has a special concern and role in Jerusalem
that is recognised in the peace treaty. (The Arabs have never honored any peace treaty, so Jordan can shove its ‘concerns’/ed)

It will also inflame the Islamic world and jeopardise efforts to re-launch
peace negotiations. (The “Islamic world” is inflamed since the 7th century. What’s different now?/ed) Continued below the fold…

Jordan: "Bad Reputation" Kills

Three Jordanians kill sister over ‘bad reputation’

AFP

Three Jordanian men were charged on Tuesday with premeditated murder after allegedly stabbing to death their divorced sister as well as burning her body and house over her “bad reputation,” police said.

As usual, this has nothing to do with Islam, can’t blame the religion of 1.5 gazillion peaceful, law-abiding Moslems for the actions of a few,  America has far more murders, In India they kill too, in Africa they bury new-born babies and if the world was Islamic  we would all be so much better off…

Jordan’s Board of Fatwas: “Anything that contradicts the Sharia” in UN anti-discrimination convention is prohibited

The advancement of human rights in Islamic countries is perennially blocked by Sharia. It’s promoters argue that, sure, it allows for human rights, but all the “rights” one is allowed — supposedly by divine fiat — are spelled out in Sharia. Stories like this show the obvious limitations on Sharia’s respect for human rights by modern standards, and should serve as a cautionary tale for the West. “Amman accused by Islamists of “destroying the family,” from Ennehar Online, August 22, Jihad Watch:
