This is good news:
On Wednesday, the State Security Court in Jordan issued harsh sentences against a number of citizens on terrorism-related charges.

The court decided to sentence a citizen to seven years of hard labor, for planning to carry out stabbing in the West Bank against Jews, after he was found guilty of a "threat of terrorist act using violence".

According to the indictment published by the Jordanian news agency Petra, the accused is Jordanian and holds Palestinian identity. For about a year, he was consumed with the desire to carry out a "terrorist" operation against the Jews by stabbing one of them. The accused left Jordanian territory for the West Bank  in order to carry out stabbing operations there, but the security services managed to arrest him.

The indictment pointed out that while he was in Hebron, he tried to inquire from the citizens about a way to enter Jerusalem and implement what he was determined to do there, but he was not able to do so because of the difficulty of entering Jerusalem.
Four takeaways:

1. Jordan takes terror attacks against Jews seriously, even when the act wouldn't take place in Jordan.
2. Jordan considers such attacks to be terrorism, not "resistance," although the media is not quite sure about that by putting the word "terrorist" in quotes.
3. It is unclear if PA security forces or Israeli intelligence uncovered the plot and shipped the man back to Jordan, with full cooperation. It would be nice to know which one it was.
4. Israel's restrictions on people entering Jerusalem saves lives.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
