"If we go ahead with such moves, Jordan will face repercussions that would go beyond our sorrows... It will also affect Jordan's abilities concerning the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks," he added.
AFP reported that the 150-member lower house renewed its confidence in Nsur by an 81-29 vote, with 20 abstentions and 20 MPs absent.
Incensed by the shooting death of judge Raed Zeiter at a border crossing last week, MPs had demanded the government expel the Israeli ambassador and release Jordanian soldier Ahmad Daqamseh, who shot dead seven Israeli schoolgirls in the 1990s.
They have also demanded the government recall the Jordanian ambassador to Israel.
IDF soldiers shot and killed the judge, 38-year-old Raed Zeiter, at the Allenby border crossing after he attacked a soldier and tried to grab his weapon.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu later expressed regret for the shooting but stopped short of apologizing to Jordan.
President Shimon Peres on Monday issued an apology to Jordans King Abdullah II over the incident.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Sure, he needs someone to keep the palestinians under control.
Jordan (/ˈdʒɔrdən/; Arabic: الأردن al-Urdun), officially the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (Arabic: المملكة الأردنية الهاشمية al-Mamlakah al-Urdunīyah al-Hāshimīyah), is an Arab kingdom in Western Asia, on the East Bank of the Jordan River, and extending into the historic region of Palestine. Jordan borders Saudi Arabia to the south and east, Iraq to the north-east, Syria to the north, and Palestine, the Dead Sea and Israel to the west.
Our big joke was Jordan was nice, HASH YOU MIGHT have expected....pun, play on the Hashemite Kingdom.
I remember the American-Syrian-Swedish woman, Queen Noor, married to the King of Jordan. I think she's still alive.
Queen Noor of Jordan (Arabic: جلالة الملكة نور; born Lisa Najeeb Halaby on 23 August 1951) is the widow of King Hussein of Jordan. She was his fourth spouse and queen consort of Jordan between 1978 and 1999. Since her husband's death in 1999, she has been queen dowager of Jordan.
~~~the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks~~~
And on it goes....
I’ve met Queen Noor she is stunningly beautiful and was dressed, well, like a queen.

I reported accidental ommission as abuse, but so far the mods haven’t fixed it.
Have you? Wow! She IS gorgeous.
She has always, as much as I've seen her, BEHAVED like a queen too.
Not many genuine kings and queens in this world. I LOVED Jordan. We saw Petra...BETRA, at the Arabs say it. Every time I see an Indiana Jones movie, I think of Jordan.
My husband had one of the very FIRST big video cameras. EVERY place in the world found us having to submit our camera to the various customs and such. The Jordanians did the same and looked at our camera for about an hour. They were FASCINATED with the new technology. There was no problem but that first BIG camera was a doozy for all the customs of the world to see.

Wow, the majority of those Jordanian MPs are a bunch of MINOs. /s
Hope he has his Will up to date.
Many of the average Jordanian people can’t stand the queen and other royal Hashemite elites there. When times are tough economically and water is scarce the Queen and her cohorts have often had grand trips and parties doing hugely ostentatious displays that pissed people off over the years.
Do you know many average Jordanian people?
Even if I were there, I wouldn't be able to communicate as I don't remember enough Arabic to hold a conversation.
Also, I doubt that I would ask any but known acquaintances how they felt about their queen.
Besides, one doesn't have to like the queen as she has absolutely ZERO authority to make or enforce laws.
If the queen is doing all that nonsense, she is doing WITH the knowledge, permission and authority of the king. Maybe he even encourages her to do those things. I wouldn't throw stones at her unless there are facts involved.
She IS an easy target. Hah, but then MANY "royalty" are easy targets.
