Protestors unite in Jordan demanding the severing of Israeli ties.

Friday witnessed protestors in Jordan taking to the streets, and the calling for the severing  of diplomatic relations with Israel and the expelling of the Israeli ambassador from Amman in light of clashes between Palestinian worshipers and Israeli troops over the past week near al-Aqsa Mosque. Jewish radicals broke into the al-Aqsa Mosque area, in Jerusalem which is sacred to both Muslims and Jews. Some Palestinians and several Israeli police were injured during the clashes.

Many participants from different movements united in solidarity demonstrating their disgust and anger of the Israeli aggression. Muslim Brotherhood Hammam Saeed said Jordan should cut all ties with Israel and annul the Wadi Arab peace treaty the two sides signed in 1994. He continued “I call on the Arabs to end the useless peace negotiations and I urge the Palestinians to resort to Intifada (uprising) in the face of the Israeli aggressions and violations against al-Aqsa and the Old City of Jerusalem. Today is the day of anger”.

Protestors chanted many slogans and called on Hamas to liberate Jerusalem burning Israeli flags. They continued angrily labeling Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas as a “traitor” calling on him to step down blaming him for the delayed vote on Goldstone’s report that highlights the alleged war crimes by Israel against the Palestinians during the 22-day Israeli offensive on Gaza that began on Dec. 27, 2008. Demonstrators were angry with allegations that Abbas and the PLO had been pressured into requesting the postponing of the vote on Goldstone’s report.

They insisted they be heard and their wishes respected beseeching the governments not to silent the protestors allowing them to vent their anger. One thing was for sure and that is all protestors from all movements demanded the cancelling of the peace treaty since the Israeli’s failed to respect the charters.
