Israel: Jordan refuses to allow entry to religious Jews

Thursday, January 19, 2006 | 
According to an Israeli source, Jordan has prevented several Israeli Orthodox Jews from entering the country out of fear that their religious apparel would make them targets of attack. "The primary issue raised by the Jordanians is that someone who is obviously Jewish or Israeli is a likely target for terrorists," the source said. Israel has issued travel warning to its citizens visiting Jordan, stating travel is subject to judgment and responsibility. "The Jordanians have raised serious concerns as to safety, and we are continuing a dialogue with them," said Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev.
