The Government of Jordan is accused of a vicious attack on a beautiful Palestinian activist

Things are turning ugly in Jordan. Just two days ago, a beautiful young co-ed, Enass Musallam, was brutally stabbed in the abdomen five times by a masked man who was “professionally covered like he was on a SWAT team". She narrowly survived the vicious attack.

What was her “crime”?

She is a Palestinian student at the University of Jordan. She is active in opposing King Abdullah’s discriminatory policies towards the Palestinians. Recently, King Abdullah's uncle made threats to the Palestinians --out of the blue-- on Jordanian national TV. She responded immediately with a posting on her blog. Shortly after her article was published, when she was heading to college, a masked man who reportedly spoke in a Bedouin accent, attacked her. Her blog is called, Myth Pen with this sub-title "Here is flowing ink pens in the rebellious, the flow of blood in the veins rebel!" It can easily be translated into English. Here is the article in question.

From her hospital bed, Mussalm told the local Jordanian media that her attacker screamed: "This is in the name of the King and Prince Hassan".

She should read her history, the Jordanians don’t play nice when it comes to Palestinian “activists”. Still, they should have made an exception since she is a hottie.

Hottie or not, being a ‘Palestinian Activist’ means that the odds of her one day strapping dynamite to her bod and blowing herself and a bunch of innocent victims to smithereens are higher than average. Jordanian assassins, Palestinians, Islamofascists, whatever you want to call ‘em, I say a pox on all of their houses. They all want to exterminate Israel, which makes them my enemies.

Jordanians are facing a reality similar to what Americans will deal with in terms of Mexicans in the next ten or twenty years: There are more Palestinians in Jordan than Jordanians.

No excuse for the violence, just an idea of the background.

The Jordanians have very good reason to be suspicious of "Palestinian activists" operating in their country because of Black September 1970, when the Palis actually tried to overthrow the monarchy and seize control of the country.

Orson Scott Card lifted the veil of Islam in his book Shadow of the Giant. I was actually quite astounded that he did that.

Interesting picture. Without exception, this so-called Arab Spring ‘movement’ is simply fundamentalists taking over from pretty-much secularist governments. In other words, other than the pupils of her eyes, we shouldn’t be seeing a picture like that.

I suspect the people that wanted her dead were her own people, for not being a good female Muslim.

Thanks tedbel.
She is active in opposing King Abdullah’s discriminatory policies towards the Palestinians.
You try to overthrow the government *one time* and everyone always assumes...

The fact that she's photographed looking sexy in makeup, rather than looking like lump under a blanket, tends to make it less likely that she's the suicide bomber type.

She may be an activist for the side of being allowed to live like a normal human. So they stuck her like a goat.

Hey the government was just trying to control one of its citizens or an Egyptian citizen. Palestinians are just a made up group. They came from one of the Arab countries.

"Brutally stabbed" in the abdomen five times and still alive to talk about it from a hospital bed?

Sounds like a Reichstag fire scenario to me ...

From what I’ve read, Palestinians in Jordan have few rights or opportunities for education, jobs, to move out of refugee camps, despite being there three and four generations and often being Jordanian before the 1948 events.
An activist in this case might be requesting citizenship in Jordan after a family living there for 60+ years might want.

My prediction has been that after Syria falls, the Muslim Brotherhood will turn to Jordan to overthrow the monarchy with the surrepticious help of European nations and the U.S.

“Without exception, this so-called Arab Spring ‘movement’ is simply fundamentalists taking over from pretty-much secularist governments.”

Imo, that’s actually a very good thing. One of the issues that the weak and stupid take up as cover for their quislingisms is that there’s no apparent nation behind the jihadscum so there’s no way to fight jihadscumism.

Let the various govs fall. Let them come out in the open as jihadiscum.

They’re all going to need to be destroyed anyway. Let them come out into the open where it’s harder for the domestic enemy among us to play cover games for these degenerates.
