A comment that I heard the most in the first hours of the event, is that “It couldn’t be a Jordanian who did this”, I even heard it from officials. Well I disagree … I think it could have been Jordanians. The sick brain-washed people are among us, and had been bombing themselves in Iraq for the last 2 years. So, I think that the mentalities that could justify bombing people in a market, a wedding, or police stations in Iraq, could justify bombing hotels in Amman.
We can’t, and shouldn’t, act as if it is an “External” attack, because we call know that the radical mentalities that justify killing innocent people was home-grown in Jordan before it moved else where, and now it is backfiring on us. So, fixing the situation won’t be through more strict border checks, and hotel door security, but I think that it should be as strong and radical as those movements. The nests that grow those people, and brainwash them is here, and this is where we should look, and target.
