Al-Zarqawi's Family Renounces Him
"A Jordanian doesn't stab himself with his own spear," said the statement by 57 members of the al-Khalayleh family, including al-Zarqawi's brother and cousin. "We sever links with him until doomsday."
The statement is a serious blow to al-Zarqawi, who no longer will enjoy the protection of his tribe and whose family members may seek to kill him.
This is part of what could be a very significant change in Jordan and in the Arab World. Al-Jazeera's website has not reported this yet, and has really downplayed the demonstrations against terrorism in Jordan.
If this turn against terrorism is permanent, terrorist friend Al Jazeera is a big loser.
