Jordan’s king Abdullah on brief visit to Riyadh amid feud with Saudi crown prince

Jordan’s king Abdullah sat down with King Salman on his arrival in Riyadh Tuesday. DEBKA’s sources report that the sour relations between Amman and Riyadh slumped still further as Jordanian lawmakers hurled abuse at Saudi Arab for its mild reaction to President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital. The Saudi Crown Prince recently cut off Saudi financial aid to Jordan. Abdullah tried to pour oil on the quarrel and also to persuade the king to send a high-ranking delegation to the Islamic summit called by Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, which is due to open in Istanbul Wednesday. Erdogan mocked Muslim rulers who have declined his invitation accusing them of being scared of Washington.

    Non-Arab Muslims always were and always will be lower level Muslims, no matter how hard they try.

    Looks like Jordan’s king Abdullah has finally lost his logic to islamic nonsense

    Erdogan lost his marbles a long time back. Does he know that he is fulfilling Ezekiel 38 and will return back to Turkey defeated?

      Turkey’s going to be just one of those nations that Ez. 38 speaks about, and btw not the one behind the steering wheel. Turkey is Togarmah in the prophecy as per various ancient sources.

        Well, no matter how one views N’s ‘prophecies’, none of them are known to have ever been correctly interpreted BEFORE that which was ‘predicted’ took place. And even then there remains lots of obscurity and doubt. Quite different from how the Bible operates in that area.

    Jordan has hung in there without causing a lot problems for people in the region for quite some time. I’d hate to see them go radical Muslim on us now. The Saudis are right not to have made a big deal about Jerusalem. It was already Israel’s capital, had been for 3,000 years. It’s where all of Israel’s business is done. Just a logical step.

    Jordan’s monarch is trying to dance to the tunes of both Ankara and Riyadh. MSB finally cracks the whip and summons him to the Saudi capital to give him a good dressing down. The king thinks that Erdogan is the only man who really buys the fallacy that the West Bank is in fact the Palestinian state !! MSB probably reminds him where 90% of the Palestinians live !! Good for you King Abdullah. You need a reality check.

    If it were not for Black Friday (or whatever) he would not be King, and by definition that kind of behavior (bf) is not too majestic. A King is supposed to be close to his people, not his banksters. I am a fan of the Prince.
