Jordanian parliament speaker: We oppose the peace treaty with Israel

"The Jordanian parliament is an independent authority and its opinion toward the peace treaty with Israel is different in essence from the government's position," the Jordanian House Speaker said.

Jordanian House Speaker, Atef Tarawneh, has stated that the Jordanian parliament, which represents the Jordanian people, adamantly disagrees with the government over the peace treaty with Israel.

In an interview with the London-based TV channel Al-Ghad, on Friday, Tarawneh commented about his decision to ban the participation of an Israeli delegation in the 2016 Women in Parliaments Global Forum, which took place in Amman last week.

"The Jordanian parliament is an independent authority which represents the Jordanian people. Its opinion toward the peace treaty with Israel is different in essence from the government's position," Tarawneh said.

"Israel does not respect the peace treaty it signed. When a Jordanian judge was killed by Israeli security forces (in March 2014, Israeli soldiers mistakenly killed a Jordanian judge at Allenby border crossing), the Israeli Knesset did not take any measure to investigate the issue," Tarawneh added.

According to the Jordanian speaker of parliament, he also rejected the participation of the Israeli women’s delegation in the international symposium because "the Israeli women did not express any opinion toward the racist laws the Israeli Knesset legislates."

"When Palestinian women are assassinated in cold blood at checkpoints, these Israeli women do not help them. When we see that Israel is burning mosques and schools and killing innocent children, Israeli people and the Knesset should not expect me or any Jordanian citizen to distribute roses to the Israeli parliamentary delegation on its way to the Jordanian parliament," Tarawneh said.

Following Tarawneh's decision to ban the Israeli delegation from entering the Jordanian parliament last week, Israel protested against this act and conveyed to Jordan its deep resentment over the decision.

Jordan: Israeli bill to quiet mosques is a violation of international law

Jordan slammed Israel for trying to pass the controversial 'muezzin bill,' saying it could violate human rights such as Freedom of Religion as well as the peace treaty between the two countries.

Jordan on Wednesday bashed Israel for approving a preliminary reading of a bill that proposes to prohibit religious institutions from using outdoor speakers and is understood to be aimed mostly at the country's mosques.

Jordan, with whom Israel has had official diplomatic relations since the peace treaty between the two countries was signed in 1994, voiced concern over the possibility of the bill being approved, slamming it as a law that could potentially violate international human rights laws and conventions.

According to the Jordan Times, Jordan's Minister of State for Media Affairs, who also serves as the government's spokesperson, Mohammad Momani, warned that Israel would be violating its commitment to the peace treaty if it eventually passed the bill into law.

He explained that a clear provision in the Jordanian-Israeli peace treaty stipulates that Israel respects Jordan's role regarding Islamic sanctuaries in Jerusalem.

By passing the bill, the Knesset would interfere with the Jerusalem Wakf's management of mosque affairs in the capital, he said. Momani also noted that international and humanitarian law apply to east Jerusalem.

The Knesset voted 55-48 in favor of the controversial bill after a heated debate that also drew a lot of criticism within the country.

As the current bill dictates, any "house of prayer" (synagogues, churches and mosques) would come under the law. A softer version of the bill, proposed by MK Moti Yogev (Bayit Yehudi) suggests that the the bill would forbid the use of outdoor speakers to sound the call for prayer in residential areas from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m.

Yogev stated that the bill was a social one, not a religious one, and that what prompted it were complaints that calls to prayer were disturbing the quiet in residential areas. "I was approached by many citizens, including Muslims, to deal with this phenomenon," he said, referring to the controversy and ensuing concerns the bill has sparked.

"We do not wish to harm worshipers by this bill," he added. "We, too, believe that God is one, God is great- Allahu akhbar. We are partners on this matter. But hundreds of thousands of citizens in mixed [Jewish and Muslim] areas all suffer from this."
