[quote:Anonymous Coward 23406708:MV8yMDUwMzA4XzM0NTY0MzE4X0UyQkIzMjA4] [quote:3ogla 19342852:MV8yMDUwMzA4XzM0NTYxNDE2XzM3OTJGOUI4] The King of Jordan didn't know a word of Arabic when he became King, he had to read from a paper and spoke many broken words in the first "Kings Speech", I do not know how can a person like that have the ability to run a country, people around him, the ones who are old and more experienced are the ones fooling him around and ruining the country. It is a basically one big mess thats all. [/quote] I've heard he speaks heavily accented Arabic... His mother "the typist from Ipswich" was not popular (blue-eyed blonde)... She was replaced by a very popular Palestinian Queen who died in a suspicious helicopter crash... The rumor is that she was not popular w/ the East Bank Arabs & the Hashemites b/c she was Palestinian.... Noor avoided Muna's "issues" by emphasizing her Arab ancestry (American w/ Syrian father) and by being a tireless advocate for Jordan. I'm not saying she was universally loved, but I do think she was better received than Muna... I found it interesting that some of the protestors who are active on Twitter are trying to get contact information for Hamzah (Noor's oldest son)... king Hussein wanted Hamzah (who is Hussein's spitting image) to succeed him, but Hamzah was too young when Hussein succumbed to cancer.... There has been talk (among the opposition) of Abdullah stepping down and another member of royal family taking his place as a constitutional monarch. I am guessing that some protestors see Hamzah as a candidate for that role... [/quote]

Protests break out in Jordan, mention king by name
As of this writing, protesters are amassing in Amman, the capital, in a demonstration that was initially sparked by cuts to fuel subsidies but have come to more directly address the country’s governing system, including King Abdullah himself.
Local media report protests in several other Jordanian cities. Demonstrations in the country’s south have “become commonplace over the past year,” George Washington University Professor Marc Lynch said, pointing to this article on “tribal dissent” in the kingdom.
