Jordan forbids Jewish tourists to pray anywhere in the country


Jordanian police threatened a group of Israeli tourists, among them a Rabbi, that they would be jailed if they prayed anywhere in the country. Their tefillins, prayer shawls, kippahs and prayer books were confiscated – and Jordan is a moderate Muslim country.

A group of approximately 20 haredi Jews are being detained at a hotel near Petra, Jordan, after they sought to go to the grave of Aaron.

The tourists were in Jordan to visit the Tomb of Aaron, the biblical high priest and brother of Moses, who tradition holds is buried on Mount Hor, near Petra, at a site known locally as Jabal Haroun.

“It emerged that they were not allowed to show any religious symbols,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Emmanuel Nahshon told The Times of Israel. He said the incident occurred either Sunday or Monday.

Whoever prays will be taken to jail

One of the tourists, Rabbi Menashe Zelicha of Bnei Brak, said the police officers told his group that “in all of Jordan it is forbidden for Jews to pray.”

“We are not allowed to pray in the morning, no tefillin, no prayer shawls, nothing – we cannot pray, even in the hotel, even inside our room,” Zelicha told the Kol Chai radio station. “Policemen came into the hotel and were shouting and went wild, saying that in a minute they would take us out of Jordan if we made even a tiny squeak. They told us, ‘Whoever prays will be taken to jail.’”

“They have brought in a special police force, not regular policemen, and they have the power to arrest anyone on the spot,” the Rabbi said. “Whoever is seen praying will be arrested.”

Rabbi Zelicha added that his group was talking to each other about how to do the morning prayers anyway.

“When we reached the border crossing, everything was fine, all behaved politely, we passed all the controls, and everything went well.

Suddenly, after they realized that we were a group from Jerusalem, we understood from the instructors that the history of the Temple Mount was related to our situation and suddenly they decided that they wanted to re-examine all our bags.”

“After going through an X-ray detector (how ironic considering the pressures Jordan applied against Israel for the removal of the metal detectors at Temple Mount) and everything was fine, we were stopped another time. They started checking the suitcase and checking everything inside again.”

Zelicha said authorities “checked the suitcase and everything. They refused to let us bring in books. They removed the prayer shawls, the tefillin; they removed one person’s tzitzit.

“One guy had on him a driving written test booklet, they took it. They took people’s skullcaps. People were left with only their shirt and trousers.”

Israeli diplomats stationed in Jordan asked the tourists to “lower their profile and to listen to instructions from the police,” Nahshon said.

The Israelis were also advised to leave the country sooner than they had planned, given the tense situation in Israel and the West Bank in the wake of a July 14 shooting attack at the Temple Mount, as well as the stabbing attack on an Israeli security guard and death of two Jordanians at the Israeli embassy compound in Jordan on Sunday.

“A few others and I saw what was happening,” added Rabbi Zelicha, “We managed to hide the tefillin on the side of a suitcase without being noticed. We felt like the people during the Shoah. Thank God, my phylacteries and my shawl of prayer have not been taken away”.

Among all the Nazis collaborators during WW2, Palestinian Arabs are the only one who have not been denazified.

      Its sharia law creeping in drip by drip. Jordon is becoming more Islamic, intolerant as Turkey as Islam creeps in.

      And did you know Turkey allows harvesting of organs from refugees and killing them in the process

      And that includes killing children too ! And even UN was aware of it for over 3 years but keeps blaming syrian govt !

      • IzlamIsTyranny

        Jordan has ALWAYS been an islamic sh!ttystan. Their constitution specifically forbids Jews from ever being citizens. Jordan attacked Israel in ’48’, ’67’ AND ’73 in addition to providing safe haven for the PLO to launch cross-border raids into Israel. WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE WAKE UP AND SMELL THE JIHAD.

    • KitteeK

      We wish. Anti-semitisn has horrifically raised it’s demonic head eating at the souls of many once again, but even more so as the West succumbs to this monstrous soul-destroying hatred. God will intervene at some point.

    • Stephen Honig

      That means all Muslim countries. LOL

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Think of the money that will be saved.

  • vercingetorix

    It isn’t safe for Jews (let alone israeli Jews) to go to Jordan or any other muslim country. If i were jewish i would definitely avoid that and i even avoid it being a catholic christian!

  • KitteeK

    Former USSR responsible for igniting the already present Jew- hatred in Islamic world, as part of attack on USA, lying that America was run by ‘ Zionists’
    Long after fall of USSR, the plan successful. See here interview with author of ‘ Disinformation’ by highest ranking Soviet ever to defect to the West ( USA):

    I recommend the book !

  • OverIt

    This intolerance of all other religions by that oh-so-tolerant Religion of Peace seems to be accelerating at a vastly increasing rate lately, even in countries where its followers are less than 10% of the population. Something has to give very soon, and it ain’t going to be pretty.

  • Marty

    Where are all the SJWs in the media with this story? Where is the shaming, CNN? You freaks at CNN to busy with the Trump/Russia, Russia/Trump, Trump/Russia, Russia/Trump BS to report on this? Very selective about what you report aren’t you? Very selective about who you go after isn’t that right? Worthless scum.

  • Simba

    Don’t visit any Muslim nation for any natural beauty or so called Islamic art and architecture( which preceded Islam and always was indigenous). Many westerners,especially women, drool over these ,learn Arabic as a fashion,get their bodies tattooed with Quranic prayers,fall in love and even marry people there.I wonder what’s the fascination.Huge number of Russian and Ukrainian women have married Turkish men,while on vacation there.All these personal issues are difficult to understand and warn about.It’s not about expressing solidarity for the Jews but let’s at least stop being selfish.One day all of us will be told something we don’t want to hear.

    If people stop visiting these nations,they will stop earning dollars apart from through trade( which is very difficult to curtail due to many reasons).

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    Soddy Barbaria’s official policy (as enforced by Delta airlines [spit]) is that no one from any other faith is allowed to pray or possess any holy texts outside of islum and Jews, aren’t allowed in the holey kingdom at all (as enforced by Delta Airlines [spit]).
    Soddy Barbaria is, in effect, judenrein.

  • Dan Knight

    A bit of a surprise … I thought Jordan had outlawed non-Muslim prayer long ago. They’re not exactly noted for being civilized – they’re noted for not being as awful as most of the barbarians. Not being the worst barbarian in the ‘hood is a long way from being civilized.

    As for our Jewish tourists, what made them think they could go to Jordan safely? Too much Israeli TV-propaganda?

    I’ve had many oil colleagues go to the region, and none would go to Jordan (or many other countries) without preparing as if it was an espionage mission – or without diplomatic immunity. As a general rule, these people are dangerous. Hello?

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      Some of them undoubtedly go there to visit Jewish holy sites. Jordan was once part of eretz Israel — before the muscum came along and stole the land.

  • Rog Stresman

    Jews being allowed to pray in an Muslim country? Outrageous. But Muslims being allowed to pray in a Jewish country like Israel? Not up for debate.

    What IS outrageous is the expectation from Muslims – born from their innate sense of superiority – that they should, can, and will, always get their own way. Unfortunately, in the West, thanks to governments and lawmakers caving in to the demands of the multiculturalism and diversity fantasists, for generations they have got it and got used to it. As an example, I remember the fury when France became the first country to ban the burqa. How dare they? A “French” (of Pakistani origin) woman even took the country to the European Court of Human Rights, but it upheld the ban. Her lawyers? BRITISH.

  • ahem

    Since this is a new thing, apparently, I gather that people have been allowed to pray at the site in the past. Given the heightened tensions, could this behavior not be an attempt to try to keep a simmering situation from boiling over, rather than an indication that Jordan is becoming ‘more Islamic’?

    all of Islam is dar-al-Satan (land of Satan) full of muhammadans …

    only Talmudic Jews see Satan as good …
    thus the appeal for such Jews to visiting Satan’s Islamic tourist destinations

  • FNLehner

    Western liberals who align themselves with Islamic activists are the most curious creatures on earth. They are trying with breathless enthusiasm to introduce the very elements into their society that will, inevitably, eliminate their own liberal lifestyles and freedoms. What other species sets upon its own destruction in this way? Liberals will not survive in an Islamic West. No Muslim-majority country is truly liberal. None. Yet our Western liberals are so painfully naive, as if they were stuck at the high-school level of maturity. They are creating the conditions that will end the practices they cherish the most, and are taking the rest of us down with them. The worst offenders are the liberal women. They have the most to lose, as is being seen now already in Europe and the domination and control over their lives beginning to loom larger in their encounters with migrant cultures.

      The day will come when all old accounts will be settled. It may not be today, but the day will come.

    Isn’t the King of Jordan – King Abdullah – half BRITISH?? Would have thought that that would have made them a little more ‘moderate’.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      There are plenty of British muslums now and being British doesn’t make them any better than the rest.
