I have to say that i am shocked and sad due to the news that is comming out of Amman. My day at work has stopped and i am just going from one site to another searching for any new piece of news.
A very dear friend of mine was visiting amman and was in the Hyatt hotel, and it was very dfficult for me to reach him, but finally i got to hear from him, and he’s doing ok. He’ll add this to his numerous near death situaions.
I would like to wish all the best for Hrh Prince Hashim, the acting regent, who is leading the efforts taking place right now , and i hope that our security forces find those who are responssible for what happened.
We also need to stick together as people and citizens of Jordan and not forget that the threat is always there and that we need to combat this cancer they call terrorism, and exted our help to those who combat it.
The picture attached is of a group of soldiers from the 71st Anti Terrorist Battalion in the Jordanian Special Forces. We need not forget what these men go through every day in order to make Jordan a safe place. A lot of their work happens behind the scene and is very secretive, and thats why i felt the urge to put this picture and pay tribute to the hidden soldiers of our war with terrorism.
May Allah bless the souls of those who died today, and may he be merciful on their souls.
