بعد تهديدات الملك بحرب أهلية مطالبة للأمريكين بحماية الفلسطينين في الأردن

بعد الخطاب الاخير للملك عبدالله، فقد تبين أن الرجل يسعى لحرب أهلية في البلاد لتثبيت حكمه حيث كان الخطاب ملغوما بمصطلحات واضحة مليئة بالتهديد وباستصراخ العشائر الأردنية ضد هؤلاء العزل من السلاح الذين لا ذنب لهم سوى أنهم يدفعون ضرائب الملك ونفقة معيشته.

هذا والملك يسعى للفتنة لاجل لفت انتباه ابناء القبائل الأردنية عن الاصلاح الذين يطالبون به، ولتشتيت عموم الاردنين عن نفسه، فلم نجد مخرجا سوى الاستعانة بالامريكين لتوفير الحماية العسكرية للفلسطينين في الأردن وهو مسعى سنتابعه عن قرب وعبر القنوات الرسمية للكونغرس الامريكي، حيث طالبنا وزيرة الخارجية الامريكية والسفير الامريكي في عمان بتوفير الحماية بحكم المسؤولية الاخلاقية والقانونية بسبب كون الولايات المتحدة هي اهم داعم عسكري بالمال والسلاح للقوات المسلحة الاردنية.

ادناه نص السرالة التس تم ايصالها للسيدة كلنتون، نرجو منكم نشرها للفائدة، ولسان حالنا القول: ان كان الملك يعتقد ان لديه جيش سيحميه فهو بلا ريب لم يتعلم مما حصل في القذافي وكتائبه، وسنفخر حينها بجلب الامريكين والناتو بل وغيرهم لحمايتنا...جيطنا مش واطي يا عبدالله

Dear Madam Secretary

As leaders of Jordanian political party, and as active members of the Jordanian opposition, we find ourselves obligated to inform you of a very alarming matter

The King of Jordan, Abdullah II, delivered a speech yesterday on 9-11-2011, in which he said the following: There is nothing we are too embarrassed to discuss even if there is someone who wants to discuss the incidents of 1970 [COMMENT: The King is referring to the 1970 civil war in which thousands of Palestinians were killed END COMMENT], this is a part of history, and let’s think of the future and not the past

I would like to assure everyone that Jordan will not be a substitution country to anyone, is it even logical that Jordan will become a substitution to anyone while we sit there doing nothing ? we have an army and we are willing to fight for our country and for the future of Jordan, and we must speak vigorously and not even allow this idea to remain in the minds of some of us

Jordan and the future of Palestine are much stronger than Israel today; the Israeli is the one who is afraid today

When I was in the United State, I spoke to an Israeli intellectual, he told me what was happening in Arab countries today is in the interest of Israel, I told him, I think it is the opposite, your situation today is much harder than before

Furthermore, the King mentioned addressing the issue of “the national identity”, American officers of the US Embassy in Amman can advise you Madam Secretary on this, in Jordan, this has been associated with isolating the Palestinians, the king says: We must speak with a loud voice about the Jordanian identity, yet national unity is a red line to me

The king was using a common Arab political verbal trick of saying an undesired thing to the public and then at the same sentence defusing it with an opposite ending

The kings comments above are unprecedented, and are similar to this scenario: imagine President Obama going to a southern state to say: we can discuss civil war again if you do not like my medical care program, still, I think of you as true Americans

The King’s comments on Jordanian national television have come at a very critical times, days after Wikileaks released several US Embassy-Amman cables describing the testimonies of Jordanian-Palestinians officials complaining to Embassy officers about the discrimination against the Palestinians in Jordan, and also exhibiting their belief of the Palestinians’ willingness to accept a permanent stay in Jordan in exchange of having their civil rights. The government-controlled Jordanian media exhibited anger with the US Embassy to the point of sponsoring a call for a protest against the American Embassy in Amman, calling it “the espionage beehive”. The Jordanian official anger –through its media- was sustained by the fact that it has been facing louder vocal opposition from several Jordanian-Palestinian activists speaking against the discriminative policies against the Palestinian in Jordan

The King’s call at this time is very provocative and terrorizing to the Palestinian public, as they have already become discriminated against, deprived, disenfranchised, and heavily targeted by the Jordanian security agencies, particularly the General Intelligence Department

At this critical time of high tension, the King’s comment about the civil war and his statement that he would “not feel embarrassed to address any issue” is, in Jordanian political standards, a carte-blanche for Eastern Jordanians to target the Palestinians. It is a fact that no head of state, especially an articulate one like King Abdullah II, would choose such words by coincidence, the words were deliberate with a possibly carefully-desired impact of opening a window of terror and harm against the Palestinians

What does not help; is the Jordanian government’s support to several East Jordanian media and public figures calling for evacuating the Palestinian majority out of Jordan. The anti-Palestinian discriminative polices of the Hashemite regime are well-documented by many international bodies as well as the US State Department and have escalated into stripping thousands of Palestinians of their Jordanian citizenships since 2008

Further, we have been receiving alarming reports of wide-spread and government-sponsored arming of the East Jordanian tribes, with anti-Palestinian incitement attached, while we cannot confirm these reports; nonetheless, they have been provided to us by representatives of the Palestinian refugee camps in Jordan. We urge your intelligence agencies to investigate this matter

Leaders of Palestinian refugee camps whom we are in touch with have exhibited serious concern for the safety and well-being of the Palestinians of Jordan, as the king’s ill statement will give the anti-Palestinian Jordanians tribes a reason to attack and target the armless and defenseless Palestinians in Jordan. At the same time, the king’s threats of using his military might in confronting Israel is a very reckless act, in addition to reminding the public of the 1970s civil war; the king obviously wants to defend his troubled regime through chaos

Madam Secretary, we are concerned that the world, and the US, will end up facing a situation similar to that of Libya, in Jordan, where it will have to intervene to save civilians. The US has been the major military aid provider to the Jordan regime, and has vast intelligence cooperation with it, the US has provided advanced military training and equipment to the Jordanian Armed Forces, and therefore the US has a moral and a legal responsibly of protecting the Palestinian majority of Jordan by force

We believe that Jordan will soon spiral into chaos after recent years’ more extreme discrimination against the Palestinians and government-sponsored anti-Palestinian propaganda that is found every day in the Jordanian media

We are hereby demanding full American military protection of the Palestinian majority of Jordan, as the political and demographic grounds in Jordan seem to be directing towards escalation that is supported by the king himself

We call on you, Madam Secretary, to convey this message to President Obama, we are crying for help from the United State government before we see our children killed and our women raped by the Jordanian tribesmen and armed forces as the case was with Qaddafi’s militias. Please spare the blood of our children from weapons in the hands of the King’s regime and his army, which you have provided and your tax-payers have paid for protecting us and not killing us

It is the United State government’s duty, both morally and legally, to protect the Palestinians in Jordan and to support our calls for change and demand, as president Obama has assured his commitment to voices of change in the Middle East

The United States must also fulfill its commitment to Israel’s security, which President Obama has confirmed many times, the King’s agenda for a civil war will only compromise Israel’s security as he has already been compromising Israel’s demographic security by stripping thousands of Palestinians of their Jordanian citizenships

Please save us before it is too late! Please save our children, please save our homes, please save us from a Palestinian holocaust on the hands of the Hashemite regime

Sincerely Yours
