Jordan’s lower house of parliament doesn’t consider resistance against Israel to be “terror” and amended a law governing a state security court’s jurisdiction accordingly. The Jordan Times (via EoZ) writes:

The deputies agreed that any actions against Israel cannot be “terrorism” at all; hence, they approved a provision that excludes actions against Israel from terrorism crimes.

The draft amendments limit the jurisdiction of the SSC to five crimes specified in the Constitution: treason, espionage, terrorism, drugs and money counterfeiting.

The bill will be sent to the Senate for deliberations and endorsement, after which it will be forwarded to His Majesty King Abdullah for ratification.

If approved, this Mother of All Loopholes is bound to boomerang on the Hashemites.
