Israel Angry Over Calls to Free Jordanian Mass Killer

Jordanian justice minister Hussein Mjali, right, joins protesters demanding the release of a soldier

who shot dead seven Israeli schoolgirls in 1997. Banner reads "freedom."

Israel summoned Jordan's envoy Tuesday to express anger over the Jordanian

Justice Minister's call to free a soldier who killed seven Israeli schoolgirls

in 1997.

Israel expressed "revulsion and shock at the statements of the minister,

especially since they were made by the person entrusted with law and justice,"

Israel's Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The Jordanian envoy was informed that Israel "expects the Jordanian

government to immediately and unequivocally denounce the minister's statement,"

the ministry said.

Jordan and Israel have a peace treaty, but relations in recent years have

been cool.

On Monday, Justice Minister Hussein Mjali joined a protest in Amman calling

for the release of Cpl. Ahmed Daqamseh. The soldier is serving a life sentence

for killing the eighth-graders, who were on a school outing near the border

between the two countries when he opened fire with an automatic rifle. Seven

other girls were wounded.

Mjali, who served in the past as the soldier's attorney, told cheering

supporters, "I'm committed to be here with you as his lawyer." In comments

that particularly angered Israelis, he was quoted as calling the soldier a

"hero" who "does not deserve to be in prison."

A Jordanian government spokesman said the minister was not representing

the government but "has the right to express himself."

The attack came three years after Israel and Jordan signed a peace agreement

in 1994, after years of unofficial ties. Jordan's King Hussein— the late

father of the current king, Abdullah II— rushed to Israel and paid condolence

visits to the girls' families, a gesture that touched many Israelis and did

much to defuse the crisis.

In a trial, the soldier avoided the death penalty because the court ruled

he was mentally unstable.

The envoy summoned Tuesday was the Jordanian Embassy charge d'affaires.

Jordan has not had a permanent ambassador in Israel since the former envoy

was promoted to information minister last summer.

Have the protesters been violent?

Anyway, I don't think it's hard to see that they and the minister are in the wrong here - I just hope they are a minority. Too bad the government did not issue a stronger statement of condemnation against the minister.

is the blatant lie about this POS actually being set free a part of that imitation? aj's a lot of things, but he's not a liar.

secondly, the idiot calling for his release was his lawyer-lawyers are always saying stupid, insulting shite when it comes to some of the more POS clients. haven't you read some of the incredibly stupid shite mumia abu-jamal's lawyers have said over the years about him? most of his lawyers are jewish--OMG, the outrage. clearly american jewish lawyers love them some cop killers :rolleyes:

AJ has a reputation of being tongue-in-cheek, whereas you bask in your POV which isn't at all satirical tongue in cheek or whatever. You can't choose when you want to be "playful" with wording you know. Well, you can, but it won't be received in the same way.

Given that Jordan's Justice Minister demanded his release (and Israel which responded with gave a tongue-lash to Jordan's Ambassador), I thought this guy was imprisoned in Israel--in which case, how would Jordan legally be able to set him free?

Jordan: Killer of seven Israeli girls won't be released

Jordan relayed messages to Israel that there are no plans to release Ahmed Daqamseh, who gunned down seven Israeli schoolgirls at Naharayim in 1997, diplomatic officials said Tuesday.

...

Daqamseh was sentenced to live in prison, which in Jordan translates into a 25-year sentence.

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

Senator Barack Obama
Senate Floor Speech on Public Debt
