New Israeli ambassador reopens Amman embassy after 10 months

The new Israel ambassador to Jordan, Amir Weissbrod, Monday took up his post in Amman and reopened the embassy with a small staff after it was closed for 10 months. It was shut down by a crisis between Amman and Jerusalem , after an Israeli security guard on  July 23, 2017 shot dead a Jordanian who attacked him and a second man who was present. The former ambassador Einat Schlein and the entire staff evacuated the building that night. Negotiations continuing since then between the two government ended in an agreement to restore relations and Israel’s payment of compensation to the two bereaved Jordanian families and the promise of an investigation. Ambassador Weissbrod will soon present his credentials to King Abdullah.

    10 years from now Islam will be forgotten, dead, and buried, and this is because the social and economic changes induced by oil demise and the climate change.
    But, before the collapse, there is this short period of atrocities and war to pass through, and this is because a furuncle has first to boil to purulence before extraction.
    Then, Arabs, just like the Germans, will have this perpetual redemption question to hunt them “how could have happened?” The rest of the Islamic world will then crumb on itself and start celebrating life.
    Just wait and see.

      Would be nice (without all the turmoil) but 1600 years of islamic colonialism that has been rampant way before oil will not be stopped so easily. We have to bomb them into oblivion once and for all. Just a male point of view as most western women are liberals it won’t happen under a women’s watch. Unless it’s Nicky Haley or Ivanka Trump…maybe…. we need lots of balls to pull this off.

    Only in bizarroland would someone pay the family of a dead person who attacked someone.

    It wouldn’t happen with any other country.

    This submissive approach only shows others we are weak and willing to stand down, or allow demonstrations against us, or pay others,, etc. etc. in the hope for peace.

    And the enemies use it against us.

    It’s time to rethink our approach to all these matters… and make a change!
