A professor is arrested in Jordan for a comment on Facebook: NOT IN US MEDIA FOR SURE

Western journalists in Beirut won't be tweeting on this: Palestinian professor, Ibrahim Alloush, was arrested by the Jordanian government for writing a comment on his Facebook page against the king's relations with Israel.

PS: Yes, I am aware that this professor holds repugnant anti-Semitic views.  I and others severed ties with him over this.  But this is an issue about the manners of authoritarian rule of the King of Jordan which gets a pass from Western media--just because he serves Israeli interests.
