WND: JORDAN QUIETLY GAINING CONTROL ON TEMPLE MOUNT
WorldNetDaily (wnd.com) reported that Jordanian government is secretly buying lands and real estate surrounding the Temple Mount (i.e. Haram Sharif). The site cited anonymous Israeli and Palestinian officials, and quoted from Israeli newspaper Maariv that members of the Jordanian royal family has been leading efforts to purchase properties to "'to solidify kingdom's already strong presence there".
According to WND, Jordan bought or try to buy: apartments, shops, properties from Arab landowners, real estate and it recently place a bid to buy Jerusalem's Intercontinental Hotel, all this through Jordanian shell companies which have presented themselves as acting on behalf of the Waqf:
Sheik Azzam Khateeb, who was installed in February as the new manager of the Waqf, is known to be close to the Jordanian monarchy. The previous Waqf manager, Sheik Adnon Husseini, was loyal to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah party and had relations with Israel and some Jewish groups."Khateeb answers directly to Jordan," a Fatah official told WND.
My own comment: Israeli press is amazing.
JORDANIAN PRISONERS RELEASED: GOVERNMENT ACCUSED
No, this news story is not about Islamic fundamentalists accusing the Jordanian government, by the way the IAF has already issued its strong sentence on prisoners' repatriation, on the opposite site, we see that Almagor - "Terror Victims Association" said that the government (the Israeli government) tried to cover up the release of Jordanian "terrorists", in addition the director of the group accused Prime Minister Ehud Olmert of "succumbing to years of pressure from the Jordanian government to free the murderers" and stated that "It is clear to all that Jordan’s intention is to release them (the prisoners) as soon as possible".

It's interesting that there's always someone who tries to complain.
"THOSE WHO CURE YOU ARE GOING TO KILL YOU"
A British priest said this was the cryptic warning made to him in Jordan by a purported al-Qaida chief months before the failed car bombings in London and Glasgow, he met an extremist man privately with a translator and sheik after holding talks with Sunni Muslim tribal and religious leaders April 18 in the Jordanian capital, Amman, and he said that "he meets regularly with extremists".
Well, personally I do not meet regularly with extremists, but if I were you:
On the same subject, the conservative party invited the UK government to stop recruiting Jordanian doctors, it's "illegal" they said. [Source]
