Attack in Jordan
By Micah Halpern
Saturday January 16, 2010
Al Qaeda has attacked Jordan, their target was an Israeli convoy en route from Amman to the border crossing.
Al Qaeda is growing in strength in Jordan.
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.
