Jordanians protest multi billion dollar gas deal with Israel


Although Jordan has a peace treaty with Israel, the country does not recognize Israel's right to exist as the Jewish state. They believe that Israelis are occupying Palestinian territory. Most Jordanians detest Israelis. Jordan is identified in the ancient Psalm 83 prophecy. This prophecy provides details of the final Arab-Israeli conflict. Israel wins this war and captures parts of Jordan in the aftermath.

Supporting passages are below.

Therefore behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord, “That I will cause to be heard an alarm of war In Rabbah (Amman, Jordan) of the Ammonites; It shall be a desolate mound,(destroyed) And her villages shall be burned with fire.Then Israel (Israeli Defense Forces) shall take possession of his inheritance,” says the Lord. (Jeremiah 49:2)

“I have heard the reproach of Moab, And the insults of the people of Ammon,
With which they have reproached My people, And made arrogant threats against their borders. Therefore, as I live,” Says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel,
“Surely Moab shall be like Sodom, And the people of Ammon like Gomorrah—
Overrun with weeds and saltpits, And a perpetual desolation. The residue of My people shall plunder them, And the remnant of My people shall possess them.” (Zephaniah 2:8-9)
