I have an arabic roomate that is living in the USA under a student
visa with his sister whom is muslim and is married to a jew also in
the USA.  I need to find some sort of proof that if this muslim
individual goes back to Jordan, he will be killed because his sister
is Muslim and is married to a jew which is highly against the muslim
religion.  For example I need some sort of proof (online
article...etc) that if the people in Jordan find out that this guy has
a sister whom is married to a Jew that he will be killed (I guess in
the muslim jew culture it is highly forbidden to marry a jew and
muslim).   I need this information to help show that this muslim
individual could not survive and his life would be in grave danger if
he was forced to go back to Jordan because his sister is married to a

Price is negotiable.

This reply by wife_of_mahmoud to iceyspots on the VisaJourney
immigration community board might interest you:

"it's pretty rare if a muslim marries a jew..."

"This is actually completely untrue, although a commonly held
 fallacy (much of it, I must say, tirelessly promoted by Zionist
 idealogists and their supporters.) Most of the Muslim world is
 certainly anti-Zionist and anti-Israeli government policies,
 but this is not the same as being "anti-semitic" (hating Jewish
 people simply because they are Jewish.) The conflict between
 the two groups is over the right to real estate in Palestine,
 not over religious differences, although many would attempt to
 paint it that way in order to deflect criticism from Israel's
 repeated violations of international law. Historically, Islamic
 nations protected the Jewish people and their rights far more
 than Christian nations (whose political and religious leaders
 were indeed often notoriously "anti-semitic.")

 I have spent a LOT of time in the West Bank. I have never EVER
 heard any Palestinian person condemn a Jewish person simply on
 the basis of religion. There are actually a considerable number
 of marriages between Muslim men and Jewish women. Some of these
 women convert to Islam, some do not. Since such couples are
 ostracized in Israel, with the husbands often refused even the
 right to live there, they often make their homes in the West
 Bank, where they are accepted without social censure."

Let me know where this takes you...

There is no answer at this time.

If your roommate is trying to make a case for asylum, I doubt he has a
case. His sister probably does, but he does not. Jordan, while not
what one would call religiously tolerant, is a civil country. And
remember, its own king married an American in the '80s.

He would be perfectly fine in Jordan if he has not converted to
Judaism himself. Even if he himself had converted to Judaism, he might
be greatly harassed but I doubt he would be killed.

And why would anyone even have to know about his sister if she lives in America?
