(NEWS) Jordanian Activists Call For Annulment Of Peace Pact With Israel

"Scores of Jordanian activists demonstrated near the Israeli embassy on Tuesday in the capital Amman to mark the 16th anniversary of the peace treaty between Jordan and Israel.

Participants - mainly trade unionists and Islamists - chanted slogans and raised placards urging the government to cancel the October 26, 1994, peace pact and to close down the Israeli embassy.

The demonstration was organized by the National Committee for Confronting Normalization with Israel, a coalition of opposition parties and trade unions.

Addressing the audience, chairman Hamzeh Mansour called for extending support to the Palestinian people to enable them to withstand 'the racial policy of the Zionist enemy.'

He also called on Jordanians to boycott Israeli goods and refrain from establishing normal ties with the Jewish state." (source)
