Abu al-Ragheb's anger over Syrian, Iraqi messages
Jordan-Syria, Politics, 1/22/2001
The Qatari daily al-Rayah said on Saturday that one Syrian message and another Iraqi one had provoked the anger of the Jordanian prime minister Ali Abu al- Ragheb and pushed him to address violent threats to the Jordanian national forces.
The paper added that Damascus's message to Abu al-Ragheb asked Jordan not to send any products produced by Jordanian companies and factories mentioned in the list of resisting normalization (with Israel) released by the Jordanian parties and trade unions to the Syrian markets while the Iraqi message asked the Jordanian government the same thing.
The paper said that Abu al-Ragheb who summoned on the leaderships of the Jordanian parties and trade unions to his office said that these companies works with Israel under the Jordanian- Israeli peace treaty and have not violated the Jordanian laws and that the Syrian and Iraqi request from Amman not to send any of the products of these Jordanian factories was strong stab for the Jordanian national economy.
The Jordanian prime minister, the paper continued, made a direct threat to the Iraq pro Jordanian Baath Arab Socialist Party, stressing that the Jordanian government is able to eliminate this party within half an hour because it has provoked acts of riots in the country.
