Your Jordanian Conspiracy Dose(s)

An internal crisis is brewing and a huge backlash is beginning to take place on the Jordanian “political” platform. The root of this is the government’s move to remove its reservations with regards to the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW). 

They basically opened Pandora’s box; the IAF (Islamic Action Front) says that the convention is aimed at destroying families. Saleh Armouti is singing the same lyrics.

Ammannet has a very good and comprehensive  report on the issue.

It will be interesting to see how the debate around the issue will shape up..

  1. Unfortunately no debates will happen. The Islamists will be armed with their ammunition of Quranic verses and accuse their opponents with promoting adultry. The pro CEDAW campaign my eventually cave in and the government may go back to the reservations to provide the IAF with the traditionl “social reward” as a balancing for political stand-off.

  2. Agreed.I think I read yesterday that they declared anyone who supports this as being an apostate.
