Jordan Waqf Ministry and Friday sermons

As you know, Jordan--like all other repressive Arab states--has the Waqf Ministry issues orders and directives for the topics to be addressed by Friday sermons all over the country.  I wanted to check today to see what the topic for Jodan is because I knew that the US ambassador there--the real ruler of Jordan--would not allow for any discussion of Palestine. Sure enough: the topic was: "The Prophet's Migration: Lessons and Morals".
