The Senate in Jordan recently approved a law that would allow non-Muslim religious organizations to operate in the country, but the Jordanian House has refused the idea.

According to the Jordan Times , “MPs who rejected this proposal said that if the law is endorsed as proposed by the government, it will open the door for Jewish organizations to be licensed and work in the country.”

And they can’t, of course, be having that.

Bah. The House’s counter-proposal is that Christian organizations alone be allowed to exist under the non-Muslim Societies Law.

The Jew hatred is terribly open, isn’t it? A point, surely, against those who insist that opposition to Zionism in the Middle East is entirely different from anti-Semitism.
