This clip is a video of Jordanian MPs reacting to Israeli cabinet member Itamar Ben-Gvir's recent visit to the Temple Mount Compound in Jerusalem. The video was posted to the Jordanian Parliament’s YouTube on January 4, 2023. In the video, Jordanian MP Khalil Attiyah (see MEMRI TV Clip No. 5941) said that Ben-Gvir is a "coward" and a "pig" and that Jordan’s border with Israel is a time bomb that will explode in his face. MP Muhammad Al-Shatnawi said that the Jews are one of the most cowardly nations in the world and that the Jordanians are prepared to be "martyrs" for the sake of Jerusalem and the holy places. MP Yanal Fraihat said that all Jordanians will become fedayeen and martyrdom-seekers for the sake of Palestine and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and that the "sons of apes and pigs [i.e. the Jews]" must know that the Jordanians and Palestinians will soon react to this visit with bullets. MP Asma Saleh Al-Rawahneh said that Ben-Gvir is a "mouse" and that he should not be compared to a woman, because women are strong and prepare their sons for Jihad. MP Suleiman Abu Yahya said that the Jews in Palestine must know that the tides are turning and that the day will come when Jordanians strom Tel Aviv. MP Zohair Al-Saideen (see MEMRI TV Clip No. 8875) cited a hadith predicting that on Judgement Day, the trees and the stones in Palestine will call upon the Muslims to kill the Jews hiding behind them.

Khalil Attiyah: "Let us remind you, you coward, you pig, that Jordan's border with Palestine is more than 300 kilometers long. It is a time bomb that will explode in your face and in the faces of people like you, you coward."


Muhammad Al-Shatnawi: "We must stand firmly behind His Royal Highness. In order to make them feel... or rather, to strike fear into them. As everybody knows, the Jews are one of of the most cowardly nations in the world. As I said before, as soon as they see the tiniest ripple on the [Jordan] River, all of them escape into their fortresses. This is a red line. We will sacrifice our souls for Jerusalem and the holy places. We will give it all we have. We are prepared to be martyrs, and be the first ones to use sticks, bombs, and guns against this plundering entity."


Yanal Fraihat: "All Jordanians will become fedayeen and martyrdom-seekers for the sake of Palestine and the Al-Aqsa Mosque.


"The sons of apes and pigs should know that at the moment, the reactions of the Jordanians and the Palestinians but these words portend an impending volcano, because the reaction is going ot be with bullets, soon, Allah willing."


Asma Saleh Al-Rawahneh: "If [the Jews] want to turn this into a war of religions, then that will be their end, Allah willing. That's for one. Secondly, I'd like to rebuke [my colleague] Abu Hussein, despite his passion. It is women who are making a stand now, they are leading the revolutions, and they are raising the torch of freedom all over the world. They are the mothers raising their sons for jihad. They are strong. That mouse [Ben-Gvir] should not be compared to women. He is a mouse, and he should not be compared to any woman on the face of the earth."


Suleiman Abu Yahya: "History is the best evidence for the Jews' defeats. I would like to tell every Jew in Palestine that the tides are turning. There are woman here who give birth to many children. The day will come when we will storm Tel Aviv, and that is a promise from Allah."


Zoheir Al-Saideen: "We support his Royal Highness' position and we stand behind him in support, until the day that the stones will say: 'Oh Muslim, there is a Jew here, come and kill him.' They are in agony day and night because of these words."
