KILLING JORDANIANS ... THEY DID SOMETHING THAT NOT EVEN A JEW WOULD DO" Moderate Jordanians express their moderate indignation at Zarqawi for killing other Muslims in moderate terms. "Jordanians turn against al-Qa'eda leader over bombings," from the Telegraph, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist: Sympathy for al-Qa'eda's leader in Iraq turned to hatred in his home town yesterday as clan members and ex-neighbours dismissed the justification for the Amman bombings.... "I feel ashamed of what he did in the name of Islam," said Moussa Rashid Khalayleh, a senior member of Zarqawi's Khalayleh clan. "I am not ashamed of what his group is doing fighting the US occupation of Iraq, but killing civilians, killing Muslims here in Jordan is shaming."... In Zarqa, Munder Moomeni, a 38-year-old former soldier who lives next to Zarqawi's house, 13 Ramzi Street, described his former neighbour as "a bastard". "By killing Jordanians here in Jordan, civilian Jordanians going to a wedding, they did something that not even a Jew would do," he said.... The Moomeni family said they had no dealings with the remnants of the Zarqawi family still living in the two-storey house at No 13. A woman answered the intercom although she politely but firmly told The Daily Telegraph to go away. "Don't hang around here much longer", other neighbours advised. "They will start throwing stones at you." Some residents remembered the young man who was born there in the late 1960s but who did not immediately adopt religion. He was known as Ahmed Fadel Nazal Khalayleh and some described him as a loutish teenager. "He was a bit of a thug, always walking around carrying knives," said Amer Hassoun, a 35-year-old man whose parents came to Zarqa as Palestinian refugees. "But then he went away to Afghanistan and when he came back he had become very religious. If he came down the street today, people would want to see him because they are curious. But he is not regarded as a saint around here." Interesting. He became very religious and simultaneously became violent. They are angry with him not because he killed civilians, but because he killed Muslim civilians. No one in the mainstream media seems to know or care why these things are so.

Little tidbit on the victims: The gentleman who produced the Halloween movies - Moustapha Akkad - and said that Arabs dont commit acts of terror, was among the victims. He also said, in a widely published interview, that the world is run by the American media, and that the American media is run by the Jews. And how did he know this? Because according to him, it is all laid out in the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. And he quoted Pat Buchanan to back him up. swhitebull - tragic, it didnt have to happen.
