Jordanian Arabs scuffled with anti-Zionist and pro-Palestinian
Authority Neturei Karta members in the Global March on Jerusalem
rally Friday. No one was injured.
Neturei Karta is a small fringe sect that attracts much publicity
from wire service photographers, following its activities from the
United States to Iran in its campaign against the establishment of
the State of Israel. The sect´s hassidic dress makes it easy to
generalize and make them seem more important than they are. The group
joined approximately 30,000 Jordanian Arabs in the protest that
failed to reach a significant percentage of the 1-2 million people
that organizers promised.
American, European and South African activists attended the rally,
and most of the Arabs were Muslims against the regime of King
Abdullah II. The country’s Muslim Brotherhood leader, Hammam Said,
told the demonstrators, “Volunteers from around the world have come
to Jordan to demand the end of occupation and returning Palestinian
rights to their owners. They have sacrificed thousands of martyrs and
prisoners so far.”
A measly turnout in Lebanon was augmented by foreign protesters and
Arabs from UNRWA villages, who were transported by buses to protest
points. Three Neturei Karta agitators also were there.
Lebanese soldiers prevented them from reaching the border with Israel.
Hizbullah terrorist leaders joined the demonstrators, and one
Hizbullah sheikh said, "The nation´s right to the whole of Palestine
is not dead.
"Palestine is not waiting for the Arab summit or international
decisions. The Palestinian nation relies on the guns of fighters in
Gaza, in Ramallah and in Bint Jbeil,” a village near the Israeli
border and which was a key battle site in the Second Lebanon War in
The entire episode, part of the much vaunted and little noted March
on Jerusalem, fizzled out after a short while. (IsraelNationalNews ©
