Jordanian TV Host Rana Hmouz: We Want to Gouge out the Eyes of the Zionists and Their Supporters; We Want to Trample Israel, the Peace Agreement Underfoot

Jordanian TV host Rana Hmouz said on a show on Jordan Today TV that aired on November 12, 2019, that the recent transfer of the Baqoura and Ghumar borderlands from Israeli to Jordanian control fills Jordanians' hearts with joy. Using puns and plays on words, Hmouz said that the Jordanian people want similar decisions that will allow them to trample the Israel-Jordan peace agreement, the gas and water agreements, and all of Israel underfoot. She said: "We want to gouge out the eyes of the Zionists and their [Arab] supporters [and to] annul the peace agreement in support of the blood of our martyrs and the Arab identity of Palestine." In May 2019, Hmouz and Jordan Today TV's owner Mohammad Ajlouni were detained for one week, after Jordanian Gendarmerie Director General Husein Hawatmeh had filed a defamation complaint against them.

 

Rana Hmouz: "Baqoura and Ghumar are Jordanian territory [once again]. This decision was bound to fill our hearts with joy instead of blood.

 

[...]

 

"But our joy is not complete. We have more demands. We want to see a similar decision that will let us trample the peace accord [between Israel and Jordan] underfoot. We want to see a similar decision that will let us trample the gas and water agreements underfoot. We want to see a similar decision that will let us trample the entire Zionist entity underfoot. We don't want their representatives defiling our land.

 

[...]

 

"After Baqoura, we want to gouge out the eyes of the Zionists and their [Arab] supporters. After Ghumar, we want [our hearts] to overflow with joy when we annul the peace agreement in support of the blood of our martyrs and the Arab identity of Palestine."
