Provocative Stamps

Remember this image?

This stamp was on a postcard sent to me from Jordan by Trevor. The caption reads “The Martyr Mohammed Al Dorra.” Jordan is supposedly moderate.

The postcard itself is actually of Petra, but it’s not very effective as an advertisement. How did sorry pictures of pots make the grade? Trevor’s first sentence is “I bought this postcard because it makes something that is truly amazing and worth the A$75 [US$35] entrance fee, seem, well, crap.”
