Jordanians Denounce Terrorists

Jordanians have said enough is enough. With the bombings in the three hotels, that killed at least 59 people, Jordanians have come out in protest of the terrorists. They are saying "Burn in hell, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi!"

King Abdullah II, a strong U.S. ally, vowed in a nationally televised address to "pursue those criminals and those behind them, and we will get to them wherever they are."

"Oh my God, oh my God. Is it possible that Arabs are killing Arabs, Muslims killing Muslims? For what did they do that?" screamed 35-year-old Najah Akhras, who lost two nieces in the attack. Similar thoughts were heard over and over throughout the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Al-Qaida, with ties in Iraq, seems to be expanding outside of Iraq. They said that the bombings put the United States on notice that the "backyard camp for the Crusader army is now in the range of fire of the holy warriors."

Iraqi government spokesman Kubba says that Iraqi's may have had a hand in this latest bombing.

"The al-Qaida organization has become as a plague that affected Iraq and is now transmitted by the same rats to other countries. A lot of Iraqis, especially former intelligence and army officers, joined this criminal cell," Kubba said.

On Thursday, President Bush condemned the hotel bombings in Jordan. He said the killings should remind us that there is an enemy who is willing to kill innocent people to farther their cause, even bombing a wedding party. He went on to say we have a duty to stay strong and to bring these people to justice.

Bush, in a call to King Abdullah II on Thursday, said he strongly supports the king's leadership and that the United States will stand with Jordan.
