Arrests in the Hashemite Kingdom: A coup d'etat attempt in Jordan or Amman's response to criticism


King Abdullah II of Jordan


The Jordanian authorities detained about 20 people on suspicion of a conspiracy "threatening the stability and security of the country." Allegedly, an attempted coup d'etat was prevented in the Hashemite Kingdom, involving the overthrow of King Abdullah II, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz writes, citing the Jordanian state news Petra agency and other world media.

Amman initially denied the detention of 41-year-old ex-prince Hamza ibn Hussein, brother of the current monarch. However, later, the former prince himself said in a video message that the military had placed him under house arrest, forbidding him to go out and communicate with people. The military explained their actions by the fact that at the events in which he participated, they heard criticism of the government or the king. Nobody has brought official charges against him yet. Hamza was outraged that now no one can speak freely and condemn corruption without fear of reprisals.

It is also known that they were arrested: a member of the royal family Sheriff Hassan bin Zayed, ex-finance minister Bassem Awadallu (former adviser to the monarch) and a number of other dignitaries of the Hashemite Kingdom.

I pray that truth and justice will prevail for all innocent victims of this evil slander. God bless and keep them

- wrote Queen Noor, Hamza's mother, on April 4, 2021 on her Twitter account.

We are following reports closely and are in contact with Jordanian officials. King Abdullah II is a key US partner and enjoys our full support

- said in a letter from the US State Department.

Their firm and unconditional support for Abdullah II was also expressed by: Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Bahrain, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Kuwait, Qatar, Yemen, the Palestinian Authority, Turkey, Great Britain, Morocco, the League of Arab States, the Persian Cooperation Council Bay, summed up the publication from Israel.


Let us note that such a friendly reaction of the countries of the Greater Middle East is caused by the fact that Jordan may well become the next victim of the "Arab spring", in which they are not interested now.

    And the Yankees, as always, need another war. They are like scavengers - they feed on what decays and dies at their feed! It is with their actions and the British that the greatest tragedies and wars on the planet occur. For they are the destabilizing factor of everything in this world. The desire to get rich "for so" is a fundamental sign of morally defective individuals. This is especially inherent in robbers, swindlers, murderers, rapists, terrorists ... Most of the Yankee elite, just consists of such individuals. It seems that the Anglo-Saxon nation has simply mutated due to impunity and irresponsibility. Not all, but the elite - for sure!
    It is not for nothing that they ALWAYS act as their most famous representatives say:

    "How hard it is to live when no one is at war with Russia."

    And as

    The way to make money is to buy when blood is pouring in the streets.

    И

    "The New World Order will be built against Russia, on the ruins of Russia and at the expense of Russia"

      What nonsense, what does the attempted coup in Jordan have to do with it, or the main thing is to loudly crow about the damned Anglo-Saxons without any connection with the topic?

        Name at least one military tragedy, after the collapse of the USSR, where the Yankees or the British did not participate? They participated everywhere, EVERYWHERE. And also were the INITIATORS.

          I ask - what does the failed coup in Jordan have to do with the Americans or the British?

    It's time to shout - the Anglo-Saxons are coming - to throw themselves out the window ...
    In secret (!!!), only to you (!!!) I will write - the Anglo-Saxons support Abdullah, Jordan as a state generally exists for this support.

      They support with one hand and destabilize the situation in the country with the other. How does it work? Yes, like in Turkey!

        It happens. But what does Jordan have to do with it? It is precisely the task of maintaining relative stability in it. In this Palestinian state, invented by the British and without American intervention, everything is conditionally stable.
