The Declarer (Floyd McWilliams' Blog)

What's the most liberal and civilized Arab country in the Middle East? Why that would be plucky little Jordan! Jordan has a measure of democracy! Jordan has a young, pro-Western king! Jordan has a queen who is a babe, and she doesn't wear a veil or even a headscarf!

On September 8, Jordan's parliament refused to prohibit "honor killings", because that would "violate religious traditions."

(From Little Green Footballs, where Charles Johnson relentlessly exposes that part of the world which is stuck in the previous millenium.)
