I received an 'error loading' page from the Jordan Times.

But you can get related articles from Google, and then some.

An interesting angle of the story is the denouncement of Zarqawi by the bedouin tribe he belonged to. The concept of tribes is apparetly an important aspect of the socio-cultural and political make-up of Islamic civilizations.

I think letting the King of Jordan know in advance that Zarqawi would attempt to assassinate (or regicide) him was very gentleman-like. Quite the good show of civilité.

Regicide used as verb can be?

Hate it we do when people verb nouns.

Yoda Master of Illogical Grammar is.

"You have selected...regicide! If you know the name of the king or queen being murdered, press one!"

A little late, don't you think? Or is this just because they started bombing jordanians?

Wait, wasn't this one of the answers to the five questions non-muslims were waiting for?

The military still doesn't know, but they're guessing he probably wasn't.

Juan Cole isn't cetain he even exists.

I tend to agree with Mr. Cole in this rare instance. Well, he probably doesn't matter with respect to Iraq, but he does have a hate for Jordan that won't be continued with successors.

Gee, I would have thought his Jordanian family would have come out as public supporters of the terrorist bombings in Jordan.

Ah, using nouns as verbs is the affliction of a simple language that does not conjugate. You poor anglosaxons.

Isn't tribalism worse than terrorism?

Tribes are nations without flags, terror is violence in support of a political goal without having official armies.

I think you mean Arab societies, eh?
