Jordan Makes it Harder on "West Bank" Inhabitants

User Journal 1

The Jordan Times has an article reporting that Jordan is forcing the inhabitants to pay a fee to guarantee that they leave after a month. The worst part is the last line, "Jordan has repeatedly stressed it would not allow any transfer of Palestinians into its territories."

religious intolerance and other stupid acts. (2)

Em Emalb (452530) | more than 11 years ago | (#3891825)

I am American, so pardon any ignorance, it's not intentional.

My thoughts on this:

Those in power are frigging dumb. People are people. For the most part, they just want to be left alone. What does it matter what religion you believe in or chose not to believe in? (The reason I add this is because of the slashdot religious flame-wars, you know, the ones where the athiests are so passionite in their beliefs they go on diatribes against the occasional religious dissenter. Anyhow, I digress)

I just don't understand this need to harm people that don't necessarily feel the same way you do.

I know when my generation gets older (I'm 27), we are in a world of hurt for a lot of things, but tolerant we are.

I just hope there will be enough world left for us to manage.

Peace.
