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.
