I prefer opposition groups that like the night life and love to boogie. (Gives the Muslim Brotherhood the ol' side-eye.)

Islamists bent on killing Jordan’s nightlife

JORDAN, an Islamic country surrounded by Syria, Iraq, Israel and Saudi Arabia, has – according to this guide – a night “that simply rocks”.

But all this could change if the Jordanian authorities meet the demands of a bunch of lunatic Muslim “scholars” who want the country’s 60 or so nightclubs shut down. They say that the clubs and discos are eroding the nation’s morals.

Jordan’s largest opposition group, the Muslim Brotherhood, has made such demands in the past. But yesterday they were were joined by others, a sign that the clamping down on fun is becoming more popular in Muslim circles.
