According to the Israeli media, their citizens had been evacuated hours before the bombs went off, killing among others 3 members of a Chinese Defense delegation, and the Head of Palestine's intelligence service.
WHY THE AMMAN BOMBINGS? WHO PROFITS FROM ALL KILLINGS?
by Henk Ruyssenaars - Former North Africa and M-East correspondent.
FPF - Nov. 11th - 2005 - In the orchestrated bombings in the Jordanian capital Amman, also three officials of a Chinese Defense delegation were killed. Three adults which, their ages of 41, 43 and 44 notwithstanding, in many media now unjustly are described as university 'students'. In that case they must be very important 'students', because in the Chinese capital their sudden death - during a low profile visit - has led to the sending of an investigating 'working group' composed of officials from the Ministry of National Defense and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. - [http://tinyurl.com/7bt2o]
But also Maj. Gen. Bashir Nafeh, head of Palestinian military intelligence was a victim, with many more. And - as usual - there's a lot more covered up by the media smokescreens. US propaganda sewer CNN had some interesting information though - all the way down in a web article on the Amman carnage and the people killed - under the caption "Palestinian officials among dead":
"Other government officials were less fortunate, including Maj. Gen. Bashir Nafeh, head of Palestinian military intelligence, and Jihad Fattouh, the brother of the Palestinian parliament speaker, said chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat. The two were on their way back from Cairo, Egypt, he said." CNN also reported an eyewitness saying the Jordanian prime minister's car was at the Grand Hyatt at the time of the blast. - [end quote CNN - Url.: http://tinyurl.com/9u23t]
ISRAELI NATIONALS EVACUATED BEFORE THE ATTACKS
On the 10th of November the Los Angeles Times used this quote in an article: "The Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported that Israelis staying at the Radisson on Wednesday had been evacuated before the attacks and escorted back home "apparently due to a specific security threat."
Amos N. Guiora, a former senior Israeli counter-terrorism official, said in a phone interview with The Times that sources in Israel had also told him about the pre-attack evacuations.
"It means there was excellent intelligence that this thing was going to happen," said Guiora, a former leader of the Israel Defense Forces who now heads the Institute for Global Security Law and Policy at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. "The question that needs to be answered is why weren't the Jordanians working at the hotel similarly removed?" [end quote]
Guiora's question has an answer, below and at: Url. http://tinyurl.com/denda - The article in the Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz - for reference below - can be found here too as long as the link works - Url.: http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/643691.html
SECRET SERVICE 'FALSE FLAG' OPERATIONS
Observers wonder why the bombing took place in this way, and ponder if it's again one of all those orchestrated secret service 'false flag' operations, done again [like Hariri in Lebanon] by those inhumane 'special' CIA/Mossad political assassination squads.
Because anybody is able to see the changing of the story again: the Chinese have been turned into 'students'. The mainstream media report concerning the perpetrators* in the latest version that 'the blasts were caused by suspected suicide bombers.'
But earlier RTV reports quoting police and eyewitnesses were different: police sources among others told information service Reuters that ''the Radisson blast had been caused by a bomb placed in a false ceiling.'' - [http://tinyurl.com/bc34b]
This anyhow is the story as originally printed in Ha'aretz: ''Scores Dead in Three Amman Hotel Bombings; Israelis Evacuated Before Attack" - By Yoav Stern and Zohar Blumenkrantz: "Bombs rocked three hotels in Amman late last night, killing at least 57 people and wounding more than 115 in apparent suicide attacks. One of the hotels is known to be popular with Israeli tourists.
A police official said the attacks were simultaneous and hit minutes before 9 P.M. in two districts in the Jordanian capital, including the commercial area of Jebel Amman and Al-Rabiyeh, which houses the Israeli Embassy.
A NUMBER OF ISRAELIS STAYING YESTERDAY AT THE RADISSON SAS WERE EVACUATED BEFORE THE BOMBING BY JORDANIAN SECURITY FORCES, APPARENTLY DUE TO A SPECIFIC SECURITY ALERT. THEY WERE ESCORTED BACK TO ISRAEL BY SECURITY PERSONNEL.
The Foreign Ministry stated yesterday that no Israeli tourists are known to have been injured in the blasts.
Representatives of Israel's embassy in Amman were I contact with local authorities to examine any report of injured Israelis, but none were received. There are often a number of Israeli businessman and tourists in Amman, including in the hotels hit yesterday.
Israel's counter-terror headquarters yesterday recommended Israeli citizens not travel in Jordan. Travel recommendations regarding Jordan were tightened a few months ago, but many Israelis still visit the country. Many also visit other regions such as the Jordanian Arava and the ancient city of Petra.
CNN reported an eyewitness saying the Jordanian prime minister's car was at the Grand Hyatt at the time of the blast.
Police said a second explosion hit the nearby Radisson SAS hotel, where about 250 people were attending a wedding reception. At least five were killed and at least 20 wounded in that blast, believed to have been caused by a bomb placed in a false ceiling, police sources at the scene told Reuters.
"It was a miracle that we made it out with a scratch," said a British guest at the Grand Hyatt.

Jordan tortures for the United States
One more good reason for bombing certain persons and buildings in Jordan is given today in an article in the Los Angeles Times by specialist Silverstein: "Jordan's General Intelligence Directorate, or GID, has surpassed Israel's Mossad as America's most effective allied counter-terrorism agency in the Middle East.
Since the Sept. 11 attacks, its cooperation with the CIA has grown even closer. - [http://tinyurl.com/8pkz2]
The picture is not at all that difficult: King Hussein of Jordan in 1968 officially declared that he would stop working for - and taking money from - the CIA and similar rackets.
