Jews can't be citizens of Jordan

The origin of this law is the British colonial administration:

3) Turning a blind eye to article 15, Great Britain also decided that no Jews could reside or buy land in the newly created Emirate. This policy was ratified after the emirate became a kingdom by Jordan's law no. 6, sect. 3, on April 3, 1954, and reactivated in law no. 7, sect. 2, on April 1, 1963. It states that any person may become a citizen of Jordan unless he is a Jew. King Hussein made peace with Israel in 1994, but the Judenrein legislation remains valid today.

seems ok to me. I am able to say who enters my front door, so why not my country?

Force, from 1967 for example, is a triumph of the will and the heart with karma killers like yourself.
