Zarqawi has not won any hearts and minds in Amman. From CNN, with thanks to Kemaste:
AMMAN, Jordan (CNN) — Three terror bombings that killed at least 56 people in Jordan’s capital sparked furious protests against al Qaeda on Thursday after a Web site carried a claim that the group was behind the attacks.
Jordanians flooded Amman blaring car horns and waving the nation’s flag to protest the suicide attacks at three hotels with Western connections.
Hundreds of angry Jordanians rallied shouting, “Burn in hell, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi!” after the terrorist group he leads claimed responsibility for the blasts….
Protesters also rejected the idea that the explosions were carried out to protect Islam.
Groom al-Akhras said, “The world has to know that this has nothing to do with Islam.”
Well, we always hear that. It would be easier to believe if people like Al-Akhras joined together in large numbers to eradicate the philosophy espoused by Zarqawi. Maybe this will help them do that.
