assassination in Jordan

So Jordanian regime agitation and takfir of a Jordanian citizen (who was subsequently killed) is merely a "blunder":
"The way the government handled his posting of a caricature on Facebook they deemed to be offensive has been a blunder from start to tragic finish."  How do we reverse that famous saying if Talleyrand? 
"Yes, this isn’t the Jordan we know, and this does contradict our history. But we’re not living in the 1950’s anymore."
Oh, yes, the good old 1950s, when British military ran the Jordanian army, and when the King canceled the political system to rule by decree, and when the regime sponsored Islamist kooks to thwart off secular leftists and Arab nationalists. The good old 1950s.
