An Israeli-Arab is expected to be tried in a Jordanian court for allegedly speaking out against King Abdullah II, Israel Radio reported Sunday. According to the report, the man was arrested in early October after being involved in a traffic accident in which he exchanged heated words with another driver. During their argument the man reportedly cursed the king. If charged, the suspect could face up to three years in prison. His family is asking that he be allowed to return to Israel to receive much needed medical treatment.
