Rules eased for women married to non-citizens

By JT - Sep 11,2018 - Last updated at Sep 11,2018

AMMAN — The Cabinet on Monday decided to drop the requirement of uninterrupted residence for Jordanian women married to non-Jordanians for a period no less than five years before their children benefit from privileges and exceptions offered by the state.

The government also decided to consider the card issued by the Department of Civil Status and Passports to children of Jordanian women as an official identification card, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

Earlier in 2014, the Cabinet decided to grant children of Jordanian women married to non-Jordanians certain exceptions related to education, healthcare, employment, investment, property ownership and obtaining driving licences, in addition to permanent residence without acquiring the Jordanian nationality.

THIS IS SAM AGAIN AND I AM WAITING FOR AT LEAST ONE COMMENT FROM ANY JORDANIAN, MEN OR WOMEN, ADULT OR THE DOT-COM GENERATION, GOVERNMENTAL AGENCY OR PRIVATE CITIZENS. FOR ANY POLICY TO BE PRODUCTIVE, CITIZENS MUST WEIGH IN.

THE CHOICE OF THE TOPIC OF THE FIRST CENTURY LOCK-DOWN DISCRIMINATION AGAINST JORDANIAN WOMEN MARRIED TO NON JORDANIAN MEN IS A CLEAR TESTIMONY OF THE JORDANIAM APARTHEID POLICY AGAINST THOSE OF US THAT LOVE JORDAN, LIVE AND INVESTED IN THE COUNTRY BUT SEGREGATED AND LOCKED UP IN THE FIRST VERSION OF THE TRUMP'S CAGE. WHEN YOU HAVE YOUR SON IN LAW, YOUR GRAND CHILDREN LOCKED OUT OF HEALTH CARE, EDUCATION, JOBS AND ALL THE GOVERNMENT SPONSORED SOCIAL AMMINITIES IN ADDITION TO BEING FORCED TO CHECK IN AND OUT TO THE POLICE STATIONS, DENIED HEALTH INSURANCE BUT FORCED TO GO TO PRIVATE DOCTORS TO PAY AND GET CERTIFICATES OF GERM FREE. IS THIS NOT WORST THAN THE TRUMP VERSION OF WALLS AND CAGES?. MY SON HAS BEEN LIVIVING IN JORDAN SINCE HE WAS 6 MONTHS OLD, WENT THROUGH KG AND HIGH SCHOOL UNTIL HE CAME BACK HOME IN US FOR HIS UNIVERSITY EDUCATION. IN FACT THE CROWN PRINCE WAS HIS CLASS MATE AT PRE-SCHOOL WHILE MY WIFE WAS THEN TEACHING AT THE UNIVERSITY OF JORDAN, AND WORKING IN OTHER QUSI-GOVERNMENT INSTITUTION SO I AM TALKING OF A STRECH OF OVER 16 YEARS BUT WAS REFUSED HEALTH INSURANCE WHERE HIS MOTHER (MY WIFE) WAS WORKING. WHEN I WAS ATTEMPTING LIVE WITH MY FAMILY LIKE ALL THOSE JORDANIAN MEN WITH MULTIPLE WIFES AND CONCUBINES, THE RESULT WAS THAT I HAD TO CHANGE MY US PASSPORTS THREE TIMES IN LESS THAN TWO YEARS BECAUSE OF INDISCRIMINATE STAMPS FROM THE POLICE AND OTHER NONESENSICAL AGENCIES. EVERY NOW AND THEN I WAS CALLED UPON TO SHOW PAPERS FOR OUR SON AT PRIVATE SCHOOLS WHILE MULTIPLE CHILDREN FROM MULTIPLE CONCUBINES FROM ALL OVER THE GLOBE ENJOY MY WIFES TAXES, BRAIN POWER AND MY OWN HUMANITY AND GOOD DEEDS FOR JORDANIAN CHILDREN THAT I HOSTED MOST SUMMERS AND TAKE CARE OF THEM IN OUR HOME IN BOSTON. I HAVE EXTENDED MY HANDS TO JORDANIAN CHILDREN BY BRINGING THEM TO USA FOR UNIVERSITY EDUCATION AND YET THE COUNTRY CALLED JORDAN DOUBLED DOWN ON SEGREEGATION AND STRATIFICATION TO PUNISH US AS A FAMILY. NOW THE SAME GOVERNMENT IS SAYING THAT, QUOTE " RULES EASED FOR WOMEN MARRIED TO NON-CITIZENS" AND THAT THEY HAVE DROPED THE 5-YEAR RULE BEFORE ANY BENNEFITS CAN BE GRANTED TO THESE CHILDREN LIKE MINE. THIS IS FUNNY IF NOT PHONY BECAUSE MY SON MET MORE THAT ANY RULE OF THE SO-CALLED CITIZENSHIP BUT COULD NOT GET EVEN DRIVING LICENCE, CAN NOT WORK AND STILL TREATED LIKE AILEN IF HE IS GOING TO HIS HOME IN JORDAN. I HAVE PERSONALLY GONE TO THE MINISTRY OF INTERRIOR MANY TIMES, GONE TO YOUR EMBASSY IN WASHINGTON DC AND IN EACH CASE THE STORY WAS DIFFERENT AND ALL WHERE LIES WITH ALL THE RECORDS READILY AVAILABLE. IT WILL BE NICE IF THE JORDANIAN GOVERNMENT IS STATING THE FACTS AS IT IS THAN DIFFERENT STORIES AT DIFFERENT TIMES ON THE SAME ISSUE. I WILL CATETIGORICALLY AND UN-REPENTED TO SAY SHAME, SHAME AND SHAME TO ANY ONE WHO FOR ANY REASON THAT PLAYS DOWN ON THIS SHAMEFUL POLICY OF PUNISHING WOMEN BECAUSE OF WHOM THEY CHOOSE TO MARY. THIS IS A VERY BAD STAIN ON A COUNTRY THAT IS OTHERWISE VERY HOSPITABLE, LOVES PEOPLE AND ALLOWS RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. TO CHECK THE FACTS, GO THROUGH THIS SO-CALLED CHANGE OF RULES AND COMPARE IT WITH EXACTLY WHAT ARE ON THE RECORDS, YOU CAN SEE THAT SOME ONE IS NOT TELLING THE TRUTH AND I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT IT IS NOT ME OR ANY OF THESE WOMEN THAT HAS BEEN EXILED BECAUSE TRIBAL GAMES OF POLITICS AND SOCIAL SEGRREGATIONS. IN CONCLUSSION, ANY JORDANIAN WOMAN WHO ACCEPT THIS MICKEY-MOUSE EMPTY PIECE OF PAPER THAT IS BOTH AN INSULT AND HUMILIATION IS ADDING FUEL TO FIRE. JORDAN CAN EITHER LIVE BY THE INTERNATIONAL RULES, TREATIES AND OBLIGATIONS OR DOUBLE DOWN AGAIN ON THE STATUS QUO. THEY HAVE OFFENDED LOTS OF PEOPLE THAT I KNOW INCLUDING ME AND MY FAMILY. THE SYSTEM HAS FAILLED A LOT OF PEOPLE AND IN FACT PUSHED AWAY MANY OF THEIR FIRST CLASS BRAINS INCLUDING MY OWN SON. JORDAN SHOULD CONSIDER APPOLOGISING TO THESE CHILDREN, MEND FENCES AND TRY TO SEE IF THEY CAN SLAVAGE ANY TRUST FROM THESE CHILDREN SO THAT THEY CAN HELP TO BUILD AND MAKE JORDAN GREAT BUT NOT AGAIN.
THE IRONY IN ALL THESE FRUITLESS POLICIES IS THAT JORDANIANS MEN OR WOMEN NEVER EVEN SAY A WORD TO THEIR OWN GOVERNMENT AND ASK WHY THEY ARE DOING THIS?. I AM HEREBY CHALLENGING ALL JORDANIANS OF GOOD WILL TO RESPOND TO THIS POSTING WITH SOME FORM OF REASON(S) FOR OR AGAINST THIS PRACTICE OF JORDAN FOR MEN AGAINST WOMEN.
