A bookstore window in Amman

The book on the left most readers of this blog will identify as Jimmy Carter's manifesto on the Arab/Israeli situation. The book on the right is Hitler's manifesto, Mein Kampf.

To be sure: I am not drawing comparisons between the two. That would be inaccurate and unfair. What I find interesting is that the store chose to link the two.

Even more striking is, working from the supposition that stores put their big sellers in the window, that Mein Kampf is in such demand in Jordan.
