Attack in Jordan
By Micah Halpern

Saturday January 16, 2010

I'm Predicting:

Al Qaeda has attacked Jordan, their target was an Israeli convoy en route from Amman to the border crossing.
No one was hurt - but only because there was a delay in the explosion.
The attack took place on a windy, downhill, mountain pass. The area is isolated and perfect for just such an attack.

Al Qaeda is growing in strength in Jordan.
At a press conference in Jordan officials called this attack a warning signal.
That is an understatement.
Al Qaeda was announcing that they are there, they are in Jordan, they are active in Jordan and they have no fear.

Jordan has always acted very aggressively against al Qaeda. The Jordanian consider al Qaeda to be a serious threat to their monarchy and to their way of life. One of al Qaeda's professed goals is ousting the Monarchy of Jordan.

So a failed attack directed at Israel inside the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is a serious matter. Jordan will respond ruthlessly. The conflict with al Qaeda is a battle for their very survival. If al Qaeda is able to move freely, organize, train, fundraise and perpetrate attacks in Jordan it is just a matter of time before they use their infrastructure to attack and oust the monarchy.

Expect a serious crackdown.
Expect an aggressive series of arrests.
