The tribe of a Jordanian diplomat who was appointed last week as ambassador to Israel is threatening to "disown" him if he accepts the job.

Jordan's powerful Muslim Brotherhood organization has also come out against the appointment of a new ambassador to Israel, dubbing it a "provocation."

Representatives of the Obeidat tribe, which is one of the most powerful clans, condemned the appointment of Walid Obeidat as ambassador to Israel as "a despicable act that contradicts the positions of the tribe and its successive generations."
