New Jordanian prime minister: Israel’s man in Amman

Crescent International

Sha'ban 24, 14372016-05-31

The Arabian rulers, all agents of imperialism and Zionism are aware that their survival depends of appeasing the Zionists in Occupied Palestine. Jordan has just proved this once again when the puppet ruler of the kingdom dismissed parliament and appointed Hani Mulki as prime minister. Like the king, Muki too is a Zionist puppet.

Arabian rulers missing in Gaza

Why Arabian rulers were not able to offer more than rhetorical support to the Palestinians? Some like the rulers of Saudi Arabia and Jordan did not bother to do even that.


Dynastic politics and authoritarianism in Egypt and Jordan

Crescent International

Dhu al-Qa'dah 20, 14282007-12-01

There was a time, not so long ago, when Egypt and Jordan were the poster-countries of political reform and democratisation in the Middle East. In those days, parliamentary elections like those held in Jordan last month would have been hailed as massive progress and a model for all Arab states, especially as the country’s Islamic party lost considerable ground. And even Husni Mubarak, so long the US’s main ally in the Arab world, would have been gently chided for his persecution of opposition journalists, even if his treatment of the Ikhwan al-Muslimeen, Egypt’s main Islamic movement and most popular opposition party, was quietly ignored.

Waseem Shehzad

Rabi' al-Awwal 13, 14282007-04-01

Although they are usually secretive in their dealings, the Saudis are showing far too much political activism these days to go unnoticed. The Arab League is holding its summit in Riyadh on March 28-29 (after Crescent press time), and the top item on the agenda is the Arab regimes’ desire to recognise Israel.

Jordan’s parliamentary elections finally took place on June 17, almost two years after the dissolution of the previous parliament at the end of its four-year term in July 2001. Since that time, king Abdullah II had repeatedly postponed elections, citing ‘regional circumstances’.

Jordan targets Islamic activists in Ma’an ahead of US’s Iraq war

The first shots in the war on Iraq were fired in Jordan when King Abdullah II sent tanks into the city of Ma’an, 215 kilometres (135 miles) south of Amman, the capital, to capture or kill besieged Islamic activists. The sweep, which set off fierce gun-battles in some of the city’s neighbourhoods, is widely regarded as a pre-emptive measure in case a US offensive against Iraq comes about...

On February 8, Jordan’s state security court ordered the release of Dr Ahmad al-’Armouti on bail of 10,000 Jordanian dinars (about US$ 14,000). His release came just one day after a similar court directive ordered the release of another unionist, engineer ‘Issam Abu Farha, on the same bail.

Husain bin Talal: west mourns the legacy of a tyrant and a traitor

Jenine Bisan

Dhu al-Qa'dah 28, 14191999-03-16

King Husain was a small man, and we are not just talking about his physique, who ruled an artificial kingdom. So, what explains the outpouring of grief in western capitals at his death with four American presidents--one serving and three former--attending his funeral in Amman on February 8 together with presidents and prime ministers from most western countries?

King Husain’s determination to drag his frail body out of its hospital bed to help ‘president’ Yassir Arafat sell out to Israel during the October ‘peace talks’ at the Wye Plantation, Maryland, demonstrates the Hashimite monarch has not lost any of his zeal as a western and Israeli surrogate after 46 years of loyal service...

King Husain: a loyal royal

Crescent International

Rajab 15, 14181997-11-16

In the west, king Husain of Jordan is projected as a plucky little monarch battling enormous odds. His kingdom sandwiched between Israel on the one side and Iraq, Syria and Saudi Arabia on the other, is in a precarious position.
