An open letter to president Obama from Jordan National Movement. Dear President Obama:
In light of the imminent visit of King Abdullah II to the United States, we are writing you this letter concerning the current political, social and economic developments and landscapes in Jordan. Please do not allow King Abdullah II to deceive or sidetrack you! The King says one thing in the presence of foreign leaders, dignitaries and world press and media, but acts very differently back home. For instance, the King is using international forums and other international gatherings for merely public image and propaganda to show his western audience and his foreign interlocutors that he is a real democrat believing in democracy and human rights. Truly, he is a young yet growing thuggish dictator in the heart of the Middle East.
This is the most courageous I read so far from Jordanian opposition group on our sad state of affairs..
