JERUSALEM, Israel -- Instead of millions summoned on Facebook to demonstrate in front of the Israeli embassy in Amman, Jordan, police easily handled the few hundred protesters who showed up Thursday evening, al Jazeerareported on Friday.
The crowd increased somewhat when worshippers from a nearby mosque joined the demonstration after evening prayers
Jordanian security forces encircled the embassy, pushing back a few demonstrators who tried to break through barriers set up at strategic points around the building.
For years, Jordan's Muslim Brotherhood has done its share to foment unrest and steadily advance its influence in the political arena.
On Saturday, Sheikh Hammam Saeed, head of the Jordanian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, known as the Islamic Action Front, called on Jordan and Egypt to follow Turkey's example.
"Turkey's decision to expel the Israeli ambassador is a model of foreign policy, reflecting national interest and dignity and not accepting normalization," the Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report quoted Saeed. http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/insideisrael/2011/September/Anti-Israel-Rally-Fizzles-in-Jordan/
