    ...Jordanian authorities have in the past three months almost completely stopped approving these coveted permits. “They have turned down almost every application without any explanation or justification.”...

    ...Jordanian sources are extremely quiet on the subject. A reliable security source told Al-Monitor that in Jordan the bridge policy is a “sovereignty issue” and is considered a red line not open for discussion....

    ...a group of Gazans living in Jordan who also face different kinds of discrimination in work and employment...

    ...The concern (although unsubstantiated) is that somehow if Gazan Palestinians make it to Jordan, they will drive unemployment among Jordanians even more...

    ...for Palestinians who have fought and succeeded in finding an alternative by moving to the West Bank, to get restricted now from traveling by a nearby Arab country is hard for many to fathom. What is further frustrating is that they are being discriminated against based on their birthplace...

    Oh, dear, Sam has always spoken wonderfully of the monarchy, including the [Palesitnian] Queen.

    Now suddenly he's not just against them, but also against the 1994 Israel-Jordan peace treaty?!

    GladiatorSam saidBecause they're a US-allied monarchical dictatorship, expected to fulfill the terms of their "peace treaty" with Israel?

    yeah, as mentioned just a moment ago in another thread I'm not even certain whether the sam poster is just one person.

    There seems very different thought processes going on depending upon posts from the same screenname.

    I was thinking the same thing, that GladiatorSam is letting AyaTrolliar founcer use his account (not just posting for him).
    Makes for faster turn-around than ATLF having to email GS and then wait* for him to post it.
    Unless one is just a sock-puppet of the other (as well as kiriak, ianct, paul80, cyberhacker, nate and others.)

    * Recall that ATLF explained that he's so popular on RJ that he has to check his email at 10 minute intervals throughout the day, and thus he also sees posts and responds almost immediately. (Either that, or he has no life.)

    That boredom previously exposed his lie that he had me on ignore and would respond to what I posted because someone emailed him. If he even had me on ignore, it was his own sock-puppet "emailing" him. Which explains how despite having me allegedly on ignore he could respond (without having to wait for an "email") within minutes.

    This is one very sick puppy. Put someone (allegedly) on "ignore" on one account only to read what he says using a sock-puppet account and then respond using the first account?

    On Facebook, he played an even more perverse game, He blocked me with his main account, stalked me with a sock-puppet, and then posted using his main account (which I couldn't see and refute). That got him kicked out of several groups.

    How messed up does someone have to be to go to such extremes?
    And even after it comes to light, he's still going at it?!

    You know you're in trouble when even the puppet-master isn't very bright.

    I don't think it's a sock puppet. It seems to me that he gave quarter pounder his password to post as his account. Thus we find him sounding like pounder in one post but in another sounding like sam thusly:

    GladiatorSam said http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/4211597/?forumpage=1 That misleading supporters that trust hillary are stuck in their own little box (naive)...


    which is the sam poster using the sam account and not pounder's sentence construction.

    As I've noted in the past, pounder does have some smarts though he tends to be a bit of a douche and this seems to be evidence of the douchey part, that he'd convince someone to let themselves be so used to enable his stealth posting.

    Sam I don't think is a bad person at heart but he does seem easily misled. Hopefully that won't hurt him too badly in life.
