With friends like Jordan, Israel doesn’t need enemies

On Nov. 18, two Palestinian terrorists entered a Jerusalem synagogue armed with pistols, meat cleavers, knives and axes. They murdered five Israelis — four rabbis and a police officer — and injured over a half dozen others, including a Canadian-Israeli dual citizen. One would expect that such a shocking attack perpetrated against innocents in a place of worship would be universally condemned. And yet, the Jordanian parliament commemorated the attack by observing a moment of silence and reading verses from the Koran to pay respects for the two Palestinian terrorists who were killed.

Though the Jordanian government officially condemned the deadly terror attack, its parliament honoured the attackers.
