What "democracy in the Middle East" really means for the US

"Jordanian authorities have refused to permit a demonstration which the country's Islamic groups planned for Friday in reaction to the entry into the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem by Israeli police earlier this week, the Islamic Action Front (IAF) said Wednesday. "The Amman Governor Samir Mobaydeen has rejected a request by Islamic leaders to organize the demonstration in downtown Amman after Friday prayers to condemn the desecration of al-Aqsa Mosque," an IAF statement said." Go back to US newspapers and see if US media (not to mention the government) said a word about the wholesale arrests by the unrepentant Nazi, Anwar Sadat, of the left, right, and center in Egypt.
