[quote:Anonymous Coward 23406708:MV8yMDUwMzA4XzM0NTY3ODQ3XzExOTM5QkQz] [b]Has the Moslem Brotherhood Decided to Save Jordan's King...[/b] Egypt will pump the full amount of natural gas to Jordan as specified in a previous agreement by mid-December, according to Egypt’s petroleum minister. On Sunday, Petroleum Minister Osama Kamal said now that demand for gas from Egypt’s electricity sector has declined, the government will be able to resume pumping to Jordan in full. The kingdom is currently experiencing mass upheavals following a government decision to cancel petroleum subsidies. Egypt currently pumps only 70 million cubic feet of gas per day to Jordan, less than a third of the 240 million cubic feet per day specified in a 2004 agreement.... http://www.egyptindependent.com/news/egypt-pump-full-gas-supplies-jordan-mid-december Background - Moslem Brotherhood is supported by Emir of Qatar (a monarch). Qatar is a major financial backer of the new MB-led gov't in Egypt. None of the successful Arab Spring uprisings (Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Yemen) resulted in the overthrow of an Arab monarchy... Jordan is the 3rd Arab Monarchy at risk from Arab Spring inspired uprising. The Gulf States (including Qatar) crushed 1st uprising that threatened monarchy (Bahrain)... Jordanian special forces are supposedly suppressing Arab Spring protestors in another monarchy (Kuwait)...Many wondered if Qatar would support or suppress MB protestors in the uprising in Jordan...In fact, protestors in Amman told Qatar to either support them or stay out of the uprising in Jordan or the protestors would "turn to IRAN" Looks like Qatar is supplying a carrot. These protests began when Jordan ended price supports on Fuel. Jordan obtains natural gas at BELOW MARKET price from Egypt. MB-led Egypt has not been honoring those contracts. Egypt is financially supported by Qatar. Now, suddenly Egypt will fully honor the BELOW MARKET gas contracts...Reducing fuel costs in Jordan...Ending the reasons the protests began... interesting...

Is it Egypt that helped spark tonight's demo's in Jordan? Cutting of Egyptian gas cost the Jordanian govt 2 bln USD #ONtv
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.
