Jerusalem Post Letter
My letter to the editor appeared in yesterday's Jerusalem Post:
Michael Freund is absolutely correct that the portrayal of Jordan's King Abdullah as a moderate is the result of Abdullah's great acting performance when he appears before Western audiences ("And the Oscar goes to - Jordan's King Abdullah," February 22). As Freund notes, Abdullah's Jordan welcomes Hamas and bars Jews from holding any land.
One unfortunate event not mentioned by Freund was the presentation to Abdullah by the Simon Wiesenthal Center of its 2005 Tolerance Award. Rabbi Marvin Hier, head of the Wiesenthal Center, led a 38-member delegation to Abdullah's palace to personally present this dubious and undeserved honor.
