The abortive palace coup in Amman has ripped the veil off the faces of certain regional regimes trying to change the ruler of Jordan – not in pursuit of any unified goal but for a variety of objectives, some of which border on the absurd.
Even if the conspirators had succeeded in replacing one brother with the other as head of state, godfather US would have remained totally unscathed and former colonial master Britain would have been the least perturbed, while no positive development would have occurred for the Jordanian masses, or for that matter for the oppressed Palestinian people who form the majority in that country.
In other words, the ambitions of Prince Hamza against his elder step-brother King Abdullah II were, and are, not more than mere squabbles among children, instigated by some cousins, but all under the protective umbrella of Uncle Sam without any repercussion for the region – let alone any gain for the Resistance Front or for the Russian Bear.
According to emerging reports, the three chief conspirators behind the failed palace coup are Saudi Arabia – more properly its murderous self-imposed Heir Apparent MBS (Mohamed bin Salman) – Sheikh Mohamad bin Rashid al-Maktoum – the ruler of Dubai and UAE prime minister – and of course, the ever mischievous Zionist entity led by the child-killer Benjamin Netanyahu.
All three, who have now distanced themselves from the detained Hamza and resorted to hypocrisy by declaring support for Abdullah, had different motives for their involvement.
For Netanyahu, it was Abdullah’s opposition to Israel’s planned annexation of parts of the West Bank of River Jordan.
For MBS, it was overreaching desire to claim custody of Islam’s third holiest site, the al-Aqsa Mosque (in addition to the two most holy shrines of Mecca and Medina under his usurper belt), by propping up Hamza and pressuring him to transfer Abdullah’s nominal title as ‘Custodian of Bayt al-Moqaddas’ – with Usurper Israel’s consent of course.
For Sheikh Mohamad of distant Dubai, it was burning revenge against the Jordanian brothers, since their sister Princess Haya has deserted him and sought refuge in London.
Interestingly, these three conspiring regimes – Saudi Arabia, Israel, and UAE – share a strikingly similarity with Jordan.
It means, all four states are spurious, since they lack history, geography, culture, and above all legitimacy.
It was exactly a century ago, a couple of months after Britain had taken complete control of Iran by appointing the illiterate soldier, Reza Khan, as prime minister of Iran as part of the move to dislodge the Qajarid dynasty, London created a fiefdom in Greater Syria called Transjordan for Sharif Abdullah, the son of Sharif Hussain of Mecca, as reward for treason against the Ottoman Turks.
In 1932, it created another spurious state for the brigand of Najd, Abdel-Aziz Aal-e Saud, a few years after he occupied the Land of Revelation Hijaz and shed torrents of blood in the holy cities of Mecca and Medina, while ending the almost 700-rule of the Hashemite Sharifs.
In 1948, London created Israel in Palestine for the non-Semitic East European Jews of Khazar origin.
Now we better understand why all these regimes, along with their creator Britain and godfather US, shudder at the thought of a real revolution in West Asia that would result in the Resistance Front empowering the masses and ushering in popular democratic rule.
