Jordanian refugee: “I would rather sit in an Israeli prison than live under the king”
Jordanian Palestinian political and human rights activist Mohammed Btaibet speaks out against the BDS Movement and explains why Jordan but not Israel is an apartheid state: “Jordan would be better off under Israeli rule.”
Jordanian Palestinian political and human rights activist Mohammed Btaibet is a member of Jordan’s secular democratic opposition group the Jordanian Opposition Coalition who was blamed for igniting the largest revolution in Jordan’s history in November 2012, which was crushed by the Hashemite monarchy within three weeks. He was forced to flee to Germany earlier this week. He had very unusual things to say about the present political situation in Jordan as well as the relationship between Jordanians, Palestinians and Israelis.
He said that he would rather live in an Israeli jail than live as a Jordanian of Palestinian heritage under the “Jordanian king’s tyranny.” According to him, “An average Jordanian who never engages in politics endures hunger, poverty and humiliation daily by the hands of the king, so you can imagine what happens to a secular opposition activist. Jordan is an apartheid state, not Israel.”
To BDS activists that claim that Israel is an apartheid state, Btaibet has the following to state: “Look at the Israeli Arabs and how they live in luxury. That should answer the question of whether Israel is an apartheid state or not. All of this Israel is an apartheid state thing is promoted by the king’s regime in Jordan to separate and segregate Jordanians in the name of hating Israel. I could only wish that I was an Arab in Israel with an Israeli passport.
