Jordan embassy protests scheduled for 6:30 PM in Amman

The "million man" protest scheduled by Jordanian Islamists and anti-Zionists is scheduled for 6:30 PM Jordan time - 11:30 AM EDT.

JPost reports:
A senior official in the Foreign Ministry said that the security assurances from Jordan have reduced fears of a serious attack against the embassy, Israel Radio reported Thursday, despite evacuations of the mission on Wednesday evening.

The evacuation occurred hours before a Facebook organized march under the banner (in Arabic) of "No Zionist embassy on Jordanian territory."

Unlike in Egypt, where diplomats lived with their families, in Amman the Israeli delegation serves without their families, and comes home for weekends.
On Facebook and Twitter, the evacuation of the ambassador is already being celebrated as a victory.

The next few hours will be interesting.
