    AMMAN, (PIC)-- Jordan has placed a ban on all goods produced in Israeli settlements established on the Palestinian territories, the Jordanian daily Al Arab Al Yawm reported on Tuesday.

    The government has created a list of Israeli companies and factories that operate fully or partially in settlements inside Palestine and has dispatched those names to the Jordan customs department to ensure that their products are not imported, informed sources told the newspaper.

    Similarly, Jordanian minister of industry and trade Hani Mulki has requested that customs take necessary measures to ensure that the products of more than 220 settlement companies are banned.

    Jordan will have their own problems soon enough. The King is not loved by the extremists. Soon they will move.

    Well, restricting themselves to the produce of the arab settlements (if any) is politically correct and a pacifier of sorts to the local thugs. Similar restrictions, placed on palistanians, brought palistanian consumer money to the "evil joovish" Rami Levy supermarket chain. Cool.
