Israel evacueert ambassade in Jordanië voor protestmars

 
Jammer dat 'bevrijding' in de Arabische wereld gepaard moet gaan met zoveel haat tegen een ander volk en land. Misschien is er toch iets mis en moeten niet alleen dictators verdwijnen en koningen hervormen maar ook de geesten worden hervormd en bevrijd.

Israel evacuates embassy in Jordan ahead of protests

Israel tells diplomats in Amman to come home as Facebook page calls for protest under the banner:"No Zionist embassy on Jordanian territory"; decision comes days after protesters storm mission in Cairo.

Israel evacuated its embassy in Jordan Wednesday evening, hours before a Facebook organized march under the banner (in Arabic) of "No Zionist embassy on Jordanian territory."

Unlike in Egypt, where diplomats lived with their families, in Amman the Israeli delegation serves without their families, and comes home for weekends. 

The decision came just days after the 13-hour rampage at the Israeli embassy in Cairo, during which six security guards locked themselves behind a steel door while mobs ransacked the embassy.

Egyptian commandos rescued those six security guards from the Cairo embassy, as protesters broke into archives and threw documents from the building's windows into the street below where demonstrators were celebrating.

The government has said that Israel would respect the peace treaty with Egypt, and was determined to return its envoy as soon as possible.
