The Miffed Minister

A Jordanian Minister is miffed:

Jordan will act promptly against Israeli violations

and the details:

Jordan affirmed that it will take prompt action against any Israeli escalation against the holy place in occupied Jerusalem, Minister of State for Media Affairs and Communications Mohammed Al Momani said.

Momani, who is also the government spokesman, affirmed that the "Jordan will take the needed political and legal measures to end the seizure against Al Aqsa Mosque and push Israel to commit to the peace agreement."...Further, the minister condemned the ongoing Israeli aggressions against Arab Jeruselmites and the Al Aqsa Mosque. "These aggressions constitute a flagrant violation against Jordan and a breach of heavenly religions and international norms," the minister affirmed.

The spokesman deplored the Israeli occupation forces' attacks against worshippers, mostly elderly people, at the Al Aqsa Mosque, and their action of arresting some of them. Momani also denounced the storming of the Al Aqsa Mosque's yards earlier today and use of force to vacate the mosque of the worshippers to allow settlers to break into the holy place.

The sources added that the Israeli Police allowed Jewish settlers to enter the courtyards of the mosque, accompanied by Deputy Speaker of the Israeli Knesset Moshe Feiglin. They forced their way into the mosque under the protection of the police, triggering violent clashes with the worshippers.

But what does the peace agreement obligate the sides?

Here, allow me to repeat:



Each party will provide freedom of access to places of religious and historical significance.

...The Parties will act together to promote interfaith relations among the three monotheistic religions, with the aim of working towards religious understanding, moral commitment, freedom of religious worship, and tolerance and peace.

Minister Momani is the one not fulfilling the terms of the peace treaty.

Now I'm miffed.

And now this;

...the settlers are seeking to impose a new reality in the Al Aqsa Mosque aims to divide the mosque temporally and spatially, including threatening the Arab and Islamic identity of the mosque and the holy city.
