Jordanian regime repression

Now there is a ban on any news or stories or tweets regarding the writer Nahid Hattar, who has been jailed for posting a cartoon on Facebook.  As I mentioned yesterday,  I can't stand the man and there is bitter ideological conflict between us: he is a vulgar champion of the Jordanian and the Syrian regime and wrote racist stuff against Syrian people and is known in Jordan for his anti-Palestinian stances.  But if the Jordanian regime was not pro-Israel/pro-US, Western media and Western human rights organizations would be all over this story.
