In the turbulent Middle East, Jordan is often the most stable country in the region. It acts as a buffer state and is the cornerstone between its noisy neighbors (such as Israel, Syria, Iraq or Saudi Arabia). However, recent events do not indicate that this will continue to be the case, as the Jordanian government has accused King Abdullah II’s half-father and former crown prince Hamzah bin Hussein (Hamzah bin Hussein). Cooperate with foreign forces to conspire to destabilize the monarchy and the country.
Deputy Prime Minister Ayman Safadi said on Sunday: “Communications between Hamza and foreign intelligence agencies regarding plans to sabotage Jordan have been intercepted.” These incidents are unprecedented in the state of Jordan. Leading to the house arrest of Hamzah and the interrogation and detention of Sharif Hasan bin Zaid, Belongs to the royal family, as well as the former head of the royal family, former monarch adviser and former finance minister Bathham Avadala. In addition, these two must be added to the approximately 20 criminal suspects who have not yet been discovered.
However, Prince Hamzah resigned from the dynasty in 2004, when King Abdullah appointed his eldest son, Prince Hussein, as his successor. He rejected the eldest son and was encouraged to challenge authority. In his own recorded conversation with the head of the army, Yosef Huneiti, when he went to his palace to not allow him to leave, he said: “I am waiting for you to do something, I will not take Any action. Immediately, but of course not, I will obey your orders.” Later, he pointed out: “The chief of the army came to my house and threatened me. I recorded what I said, This is for my family and friends outside Jordan to protect me. “
Therefore, Hamza pointed out that in the Army’s order to restrict its movements and communications, it is “never acceptable” to prohibit access to the “Twitter” social network or contact people outside of the family. In addition, according to him, he was persecuted for being close to certain key trends in the Jordanian government. “I am not responsible for the collapse of governance, corruption and incompetence. In the past 15 to 20 years, this has prevailed in our governance structure, and the situation has gotten worse.I’m irresponsible for people’s lack of confidence in their institution,” he said in a video sent to the institution British Broadcasting Corporation.
The main unknowns of the political earthquake flying over Jordan are obvious. If the Jordanian government’s allegations are true, which country cooperated with Prince Hamza to organize a conspiracy against King Abdullah II.Political and economic interests have always been behind these seditious acts, so Many states are suspected of being behind this attempt.
It is for this reason that a long list of countries have expressed their public support for King Abdullah II and have therefore tried to disappear from possible criminal suspects. In addition to the European Union, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Morocco, Turkey or the United States are some of these states, The statement issued a statement supporting the current Jordanian monarch.
Both the government and the royal family strongly suspect that Hamzah is indeed preparing a way to overthrow the monarchy internally and with foreign support. His main argument is his harmonious relationship with dissident tribal groups.maintain A meeting was held with these leaders, at which criticisms against government mismanagement were raised And corruption in the country. The prince was only an audience in those meetings, but the public condemnation of Abdullah II violated the taboo of not questioning the image of the king, a custom that has not been seen so far.
The fact is that Hamza’s current discourse does overlap in many ways with those of these Bedouin tribal groups. Since the formation of the Emirate of Te Jordan, it has been in control of the source of power. “Already reached Without intimidation, arrest, harassment and threats, no one can speak or express opinions on anything.It was announced that the prince himself was under house arrest.
Israeli newspapers reported another allegation by a Jordanian executive Maariv, Among those detained during security operations in Amman was former Mossad agent (foreign spy group) Roy Shpushik, who accused them of organizing for Hamzah and his relatives. Flight to flee the country.Deputy Prime Minister Safadi pointed out: “Prince Hamza tried to mobilize local people to take actions aimed at undermining national security.” He also added that “people with ties to foreign security agencies” and Prince Hamza’s wife and They even provided him with a plane to “immediately evacuate them from Jordan to another country.”
Therefore, the international community-especially the Middle Eastern countries-pay close attention to events in Jordan. At present, Hamzah seems to be ready to challenge the authority of the monarch and government in order to defend his innocence. His mother Queen Noor (Queen Noor) used the same words to have a profound impact in the country and tweeted: “I pray that justice will be universal to all innocent victims of these unfair slanders.”
