Try to find this in Western media: Mass arrests against reform advocates in Jordan--Western human rights orgs silent

Western human rights organizations and media are all silent about what is happening in Jordan. There was a campaign of mass arrest against opposition and reform advocates after a campaign against corruption spread and calls for publicizing names of corrupt individuals were posted.  Some of those arrested were former military and intelligence people and former MPs.  How could you expect Western human rights organizations to care when you have director of Human Rights Watch posting praise for Jordanian official, Prince Zeid bin Ra`ad, who was appointed in his UN post by the Israeli ambassador at UN.
