On December 12, 1999, “Jordanian security forces discovered explosives hidden in a specially constructed basement cache and hauled in a ring of locally well-known Islamists who were accused of plotting to attack the Radisson Hotel, favored by American tourists, a biblical site at Mount Nebo (whence Moses inspected the Promised Land) and other targets [including the Jordan/Israel border and a religious site on the Jordan River].”
