Terrorist Attack in Amman: November 9, 2005

Im watching the news right now and there are reports of 3 different explosions in Amman (in different hotels)
Its so scary and also a strange coincidece. I remember the terrorist attack in Aqaba several weeks ago. King Abdullah was out of the country at the time and Prince Hashem was regent and its the same this time.
I dont know if the King's back from Kazakhstan.

A middle east expert on CNN said the way Jordanians would numerically write today's date is 9-11. Is that eerie or what?

Why oh why did KA set al Zarqawi free when he assumed the throne? This guy is just plain evil--and clearly considers all people--even Jordanians and the JRF--targets (the missiles just missed the Aqaba palace the last time). KH felt he was a terrorist and jailed him; it is my understanding that KA released him. I just don't understand his logic........

Very sad, very tragic evening in Amman. 67 dead and 100s injured thus far. It will be interesting to see KA's response when he returns. I'm assuming he's on his way back right now. CNN just showed a rally of support for KA, by the way.

I truly feel for Prince Hashem. Both terrorist attacks this year happened on his watch. Does al Zarqawi wait until KA leaves the country? To attack a wedding party and kill and injure so many.....well, that is just evil. I expect a very strong, angry response from KA upon his return, if not en route. He must be incredibly infuriated and grief-stricken. I have not seen a response from the Palace yet. I did hear Hashem was at the Palace with his brothers awaiting KA's return.

King condemns terrorist attacks

Amman/ Nov. 9/ (Petra)-- His Majesty King Abdullah II has condemned the terrorist attacks in Amman on Wednesday evening claiming lives of innocent people and wounding others. In a Royal Court Statement issued Wednesday, His Majesty the King described the terrorist blasts targeting three hotels in Amman as "criminal acts perpetrated by a misled and misleading group." The King affirmed such terrorist operations "would not dissuade Jordan from pursuing its role in fighting terrorism and the criminal terrorist groups and those who are behind them and justify their acts." The criminals who, with their cowardly acts, have targeted innocent and secure civilians will be brought to justice, the King noted. Jordan will remain a secure and stable country and these terrorist operations can never represent the Jordanian values, His Majesty said.

Marchers to protest terrorist blast Thursday

Amman/ Nov. 9/ (Petra)--Jordan News Agency has come to know that dozens of people representing civil society institutions plan to organize marches in Amman and other Jordanian cities on Thursday protesting the terrorist attacks on three hotels in Amman Wednesday evening.

Regent inspects blast sites

Amman/ Nov. 9/ (Petra)--His Royal Highness Prince Hashem bin Al Hussein the Regent has inspected the sites of the three blasts that went off in Amman Wednesday and enquired about the conditions of injured people, who have children among them. Prince Hashem also visited the Public Security Department operation room where he listened to a briefing from Director of the department Lt. General Mohammad Majed al-Eitan the terrorist blasts targeting three hotels in Amman. "These vicious attacks will never affect Jordan's determination and its adherence to its principled and firm stand in fighting terrorism and terrorists," said the Regent. "Jordan with God help will remain stable and secure," said Prince Hashem, who was accompanied by the Prime Minister, the Interior Minister and Lt. General Eitan.

I've created a thread here to discuss the Jordanian Suicide Bombing attacks which took place today. Please visit that thread to discuss today's tragic incidents.

If King Abdullah and Queen Rania comment on the incident, or make any visits or pleas in light of the incident then we can discuss it in this thread. But for general discussion of this topic so that we can stay on topic, please visit the other thread.

Thanks for your co-operation.

Are all members of the JRF safe and accounted for? I hope the King will be touching down soon in Amman. Prince Hashem's statement was very powerful and dignified and I admire his courage for getting out to the scene so quickly.

Poor Hashim, it does seem like all the bad stuff happens when he is regent... His response to the attack is very admirable though. I think this shows he is a good man and a good, very capable regent.

I just heard a vague report that KA was en route and would be touching down "shortly." P Hashem and other members of the JRF--I'm assuming his brothers and uncle--are preparing to brief the King. Yes, Hashem is handling himself beautifully and comporting himself very well as regent IMO.

I'm just wondering, but is it announced before the King leaves who will be the Regent? This is the 2nd time this has happened on Hashem's watch (and I'm not blaming him in any way). But the terrorists seem to be exploiting the fact that he is in control, after all he is probably the most inexperienced due to his age. He has dealt with it so well and it must be upsetting for him. But attacks like these take alot of planning and it seems as though someone knows exactly when to strike and how it will hurt most. When the King is out of the country, with his youngest brother in charge.
