Re: Gis Bun Re: Hmmmm
<Yawn> And Greenie tries again with the Leftie Popularist bogeyman of Israel. To the US, HAMAS is a designated terrorist organisation with links both to other Sunni Islamist terror groups and Iran, and 'Palestinians' have been quote happy to travel to both Iraq and Afghanistan to attack US troops, and are currently involved with ISIS in Iraq and Syria. So anyone not expecting the NSA to be keeping an eye on them is simply too stupid for words. Sharing info with the MOSSAD is just common sense.
The Jordanians have a troubled history with the 'Palestinians'. The Jordanian monarchy were effectively the losing side of a power struggle to rule Saudi Arabia, and were given Transjordan (originally a chunk of the British Mandate territory) as a consolation prize by the British. Initially they backed the Palestinian Arabs in their attempts to eradicate the UN-mandated state of Israel, happily seizing Jerusalem and the West Bank and driving out the Jews from the area. But the Palestinian Arabs didn't complain when the Hashemites annexed the West Bank - apparently, it didn't matter as long as it was Arab Muslims doing the occupying, ethnicly-cleansing Jews and annexing 'Palestinian' land.
Then the Jordanians made the mistake (in 'Palestinian' eyes) of talking peace with Israel, so the Palestinian Arabs killed the Jordanian King Abdullah I in 1951 (and nearly got the 15-year-old Prince Hussein at the same time). From then on, despite siding with the 'Palestinians' in wars against Israel, King Hussein kept a close eye on the PLO, eventually leading to the open war between the PLO and the Jordanian Royal Forces in the Black September of 1970, when the Jordanians defeated a PLO attempt to seize control of the country. Hussein ejected what was left of the PLO to the Lebanon (where they made even more trouble for the Lebanese) and made peace with the Israelis, dashing any 'Palestinian' dream of seizing Israel by force. Since then the Jordanians have been quite happy to work with the MOSSAD on keeping the 'Palestinians' in check.
