No Jews Allowed In Jordan

Andrew Bostom reports on laws in Jordan restricting Jews from obtaining citizenship, or from even entering the country (From Dhimmi Watch):

Only a non-Jew is entitled to Jordanian citizenship, as per Section 3(3) of the Jordanian Nationality Law, No. 6 of 1954 (Official Gazette, No. 1171 of February 16, 1954, p. 105). The subsection is numbered (2) in an amendment that appeared in the Official Gazette, No. 1675 of April 1, 1963, p. 270. No further amendment is known...since King Hussein declared his "abandonment" of the West Bank on August 7, 1988, nor since the 1994 peace treaty with Israel.

Further anti-Jewish discrimination appears in order No. 1282 of July 1, 1957 (attributed to the Jordan Official Gazette, No. 1282 by the Collection of Laws and Regulations [in Arabic], issued by the Jordanian Bar, Amman, Vol.1, 1957, p. 186). It exempts Syrian nationals from showing their passports on entering or leaving Jordan. They may use any identifying document, provided that 'they are not Jews'.

This comes a day after it was revealed that a recent poll shows that 100% of Jordanian citizens say that hate Jews. No wonder they have such laws.

The modern Muslim world resembles Nazi Germany in many ways. I'm glad they haven't begun rounding Jews up and killing them, but on the other hand, quite a few Arab countries have contributed directly to the Palestinian Intifada against Israel. So, they do try to kill Jews.

Maybe it's more accurate to say they just aren't as good at it. But, of course, if they had nuclear weapons it wouldn't be that difficult. This is why we can not allow Iran to get nukes.
