      Citizens in Maan pledge allegiance

      AMMAN (JT) — About 80 citizens of the southern town of Maan
      on Thursday sent a cable to His Majesty King Abdullah
      denouncing what they described as "the acts of a few people
      who take Islam as a pretext to perpetrate anarchist actions
      and harm Jordan's security and stability," the Jordan News
      Agency, Petra, reported.

      Petra listed the names of 78 signatories to the letter. The
      agency reported that the signers were people from the
      different walks of life.

      In the letter, the citizens pledged allegiance to the King,
      stressing that the people of Maan reject all actions meant
      to harm the country. They said those who commit these acts
      "represent only themselves."

      On Tuesday, an official source confirmed that a resident of
      Maan had been wounded by Highway Patrol officers when he
      opened fire on the police who were chasing him after he
      failed to pull over as instructed. The motorist was taken to
      hospital for treatment but later escaped.

      The motorist was identified by authorities as Mohammad
      Shalabi, wanted by police on other charges. Shalabi is said
      to be still at large.

      Said Smygo, the iconoclast of Zothique: "Bear a hammer with
      thee always, and break down any terminus on which is
      written: 'So far shalt thou pass, but no further go.'"
