Muslim Brotherhood leaders are calling on Jordanian to boycott Russian and Chinese goods, as was reported in much of the English-language Arab press on Monday.

The Lebanese media outlet Ya Libnan reported that Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood leader Hammam Saeed accused Russia and China of participating in killing, and that they are active in the crackdown of the Syrian uprising.

According to the Saudi based Arab News, Saeed posted a message on the Jordanians brotherhood website, urging “All Muslims and Arabs” to boycott the two super powers in protest of their recent decision to block the passing of a resolution at the United Nation’s Security Council. “The vetoes were against all Arabs and Muslims,” he wrote.

On Saturday, a resolution calling upon Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad to stop the violence within his country was brought before the security council. Thirteen of the countries on the council voted in favor, leading both Russia and China to use their veto power. The violence in Syria has been ongoing since March 2011, and it has already left thousands dead and wounded.
