Jordan: Jordanian Bloggers Response to Aqaba Rocket Attacks

Jordanian bloggers said it in one voice. No To Terrorism!

madas expressed her feeling in one sentence:

We don't want any more death… No for Terrorism in all its different shapes.

While Ammar writes:

for those who think that they're fighting our freedom, please give me a break, it's just like playing back a low level IQ American’s comment after WTC attacks. Things happen for a reason, scratch your head, go to the basic facts and you'd figure it out.

Amin Matalqa hopes that they catch those guys and dip them in a pool of boiling olive oil upside down…slowly…head first.

As for Naseem Tarawnah of Black Iris he said:

the fact that it was rockets and not bombs suggests that this wasn't exactly Sharm Al-Sheik. Bombs require more planning; bombs require a lack of security to have them put together, to install them in their targets, to detonate. Bombs offer efficiency, the human flaws are low. Rockets suggest that our terrorists didn't exactly have the luxury of the above, which could say something about how tough it was to pull this off.

Hareega wonders what god they follow?

The terrorists who attacked Aqaba and previously hit other places definitely believe in a god which is not God. It's a god they made, a god they worship and a god they are willing to die for, but it's not God.

While Natasha says, to hell with them:

Those al-Qaeda blood suckers are now roaming freely In Jordan, intent on disrupting the security of the country and intimidating its people. I say to hell with them.

Isam asks:

why can't we just live peacefully.. What is it that they want to prove? Why Aqaba? Why Jordan?

  • I was so saddened to hear about the death of the Jordanian soldier during the attack. Aqaba is such a beautiful city; I truly hope it doesn’t fall victim again to such pointless aggression.

  • […] Any blogger from Saudi can confirm/deny or explain this incident? I hope it is not another terrorist attack like the one toke place in Aqaba last August.
