Mideast revolutions continue as Jordan’s government begins to collapse, the Muslim Brotherhood is taking aim at Jordan, and Jordan’s King Abdullah is starting to lose tribal support. Jordan's collapse may occur quickly.
From the Tablet Magazine: Recently, U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced that the U.S. will send troops to Jordan in preparation for when the conflict in Syria spreads across the country’s border as it has with Turkey. The Obama Administration is extremely concerned about events in Syria affecting its longstanding and reliable Mideast ally in Amman. When King Abdullah II becomes the next Arab ruler to fall during the upheavals that have swept through the Mideast region, it will mark another major setback for the US in the region. For Israel this will be significantly worse because Jerusalem will lose its remaining strategic partner in the region, having already lost Turkey and Egypt, and face a possible nightmare on its longest border, exposing Israel’s center to attacks from the east that might include Sunni Jihadists or Iranian-trained Iraqi agents.
According to a few Mideast analysts, there appears to be much political pressure building up against Jordan’s King Abdullah. Jordan could become the key piece in the Islamic caliphate puzzle. When Jordan collapses, this disaster will put enormous pressure on Israel because it will transform the entire Mideast geography in terms of Israel’s friends and enemies. Because the Muslim Brotherhood is really focused on Jordan, its collapse will not take very long.
From WND: Following successful campaigns in Egypt, Libya, and other Mideast and North African nations, the Muslim Brotherhood plans to destabilize and overthrow Jordan’s government. “The Saudi-owned news channel Al-Arabiya, citing leaked files, reported the embattled regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his allies have sought to destabilize neighboring Jordan by manipulating peaceful demonstrations there and turning them into deadly violence.” Mideast analysts believe that Jordan’s government will collapse quickly without much violence because King Abdullah would rather surrender power than allow bloodshed to proliferate throughout his nation.
From Gate Stone Institute: The Jordanian tribe plans a huge rally against Israel, with whom it has a peace treaty. Other tribes have been invited to join the rally, posing a major and unprecedented challenge to the monarchy. A few Mideast analysts assess this report confirms that King Abdullah’s position is weakening rapidly. The mainstream media ignores Jordan and what the Brotherhood is doing there because this will expose Obama’s weak foreign policy responses to the Mideast revolutions. When both Syria and Jordan are in the Brotherhood’s power, they will quickly conduct jihad against Israel and America. Syria and Jordan may not survive the coming Mideast war. They could disappear from history when the Mideast erupts into major warfare.
