Netanyahu: No apology, only regret, to Jordan

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu denied Friday that Israel apologized for the incident in July in which an Israeli security guard killed two Jordanians, but definitely voiced regret. Commenting on the official statement from Amman Thursday on ending the crisis with Israel and reopening of its embassy, Netanyahu stressed also that Israel had agreed to pay compensation for the loss of life to the Jordanian government – not the families. The incident occurred at the height of Palestinian anti-Israel riots on Temple Mount last summer. Netanyahu praised the Jordanian government for its cooperation in ending the crisis.

    Like my Math teacher used to say; “same difference”.

      True, as between “extreme carelessness” and “gross negligence”, though that’s another story…

    Jordan extorting. Israel grovelling, bribing. The same old ghetto Jew. Israel invites abuse.

    Jordan is a de facto ally of Israel.

    Just be strong and dont pay.
    Kick out the embassy of Jordan if there is not permit to
    operate the Israeli embassy in Jordan.
    Israeli tourists to Jordan should be encouraged not to
    travel Jordan and get a discount voucher for El-Al to
    travel abroad.
    Israelis may use also German embassies for passports
    and the like if the country has no Israeli embassies.

    So dont bow to the Arabs, be strong.
