I just received this press release from the owner of the Radisson SAS hotel bombed earlier today:
We are the owners of Radisson SAS Jordan. As the owners we want to send deep condolences to all the staff and guests.We are deeply shocked and obviously condemn such acts. We very briefly want to set the record straight on 2 points. Firstly, news reports have been indicating that the Radisson SAS was specifically attacked because it is an American hotel and has hosted Israelis. I want to make it clear that the Radisson SAS is a Scandinavian chain and owned by Palestinian-Jordanians. Furthermore, the Radisson SAS owners and staff represent the strongest supporters out of all the hotels in Jordan for the Palestinian and Iraqi people. We have expressed our support throughout the decades and will continue to do so.
In deep sadness,
Mary Nazzal, Owner Representative for Radisson SAS Hotels Jordan
A number of media outlets have been referring to the hotels targeted in the bombings as "American hotels." CNN is one of those doing so. This press release directly disputes this claim. I just hope they get a copy of it.
i’m sorry, at a time like this, she couldn’t bear the fact that her hotel was accused of hosting westerners and jews. who gives a crap. she clearly was telling the bombers that there reason for bombing her hotel was incorrect.
opps, I’m sorry, you bombed us because we let westerners and jews stay here…oh my, but you are so wrong, you see I don’t like westerners and jews just as much as you.
When your hotel is bombed, I would think you could come up with a better statement than correcting the reason why the bombers bombed your hotel.
I stand by my statement. Her respose was pretty sickening.
Neb, – I beg to differ!!!
The response from SAS was clear, and neutral from your accusations. It responded to incorrect media information, and added the value of food for thought about the Hotel.
Ms. Nazzal’s creed is of no one’s business, and by far no person on this planet has the right to judge another for their religion or the way they dress.
Clearly the misunderstanding and your own line of thought’s in other’s words is what makes you sick,,,,,,
