It is good to see Jordan doing this, even though it means they are giving more ammunition to those who will charge that the Jordanian government has forsaken Islam and thus must be removed. “Jordan Convicts 8 of Plotting Attacks against Americans,” from The Media Line:
Jordan’s State Security Court has sentenced eight men to prison terms ranging from two to 10 years after convicting them of plotting terror attacks against Americans and Israelis, the daily Jordan Times reports.
The eight were also convicted of preparing attacks against Iraqi police training centers in Jordan. They planned to form 10 terror cells and called themselves A-Taifa Al-Man’soura (The Victorious Sect), according to the prosecution.
Note the means of recruitment:
“Some of the suspects used the Internet to lecture on jihad and the need to fight Israelis and Christians in any part of the world,” the charge sheet added.
