Aqaba, Jordan - King Complains of Odors Coming from Livestock Facility in Israel

Aqaba, Jordan - Jordanian King Abdullah II has complained of bovine odors coming from the Israeli side of the countries’ shared southern border, Israel’s environment minister said.
Gideon Ezra said the smells, from a livestock quarantine facility, were blown across toward the king’s palace in the town of Aqaba, on the Red Sea next to the Israeli town of Eilat, and Jordanian officials requested from Israel the odors be neutralized. 
In response, Israel has ordered the owners of the facility to clean up large amounts of animal waste that had built up at the site, and upon receiving the complaint, Israeli officials immediately spread “deodorants” around the site to offset the smell affecting Abdullah’s palace.

“I think that when we get a request from Jordan, just as when we make a request of Jordan, it’s one country’s duty to do as much as possible for the other,” Ezra said.

Wow. Across the border!!!
And in Staten Island no one could persuade our own City Officials that the stench is unbearable.
I guess Staten Islanders are second class citizens then!
