Jordan: Haredi Clothing Provocative

| |

The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities of Jordan is requiring local travel agencies to inform Israeli travel agencies of several conditions for Israelis’ visits to the kingdom.

The Jordanian ministry has issued an unofficial warning advising Israeli tourists not to wear religious clothing or conduct religious ceremonies in public places during their stay in the country.

According to the instruction, part of which was received by Jordanian newspaper Al-Arab Al-Yawm, religious Jewish symbols are a sensitive issue among the Hashemite Kingdom’s citizens, especially in light of the regional situation.

A knowledgeable source told the newspaper that the order was issued following complaints received by the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities against what was defined as “unacceptable patterns of behavior on the part of Israeli tourists during their visits to antiquity sites.”
