#1 I've got a feeling Saudi Arabia will collapse before Jordan does, and when that happens the Hashemites will regain their traditional role as guardians of Mecca and Medina, and the Sauds will regain their traditional rols as guardians of a patch of empty desert in the middle of the peninsula.

#2 Its a miracle that Saudis and Jordan goverments have survived as long as they have.

#3 Jordan's problem is more democracy means more Paleo control. I don't think the Jordan 'regime' will colapse like the Syrian and possibly Egyptian regimes will, but it will become a Palestinian state by inches. Although, not necessarily a bad thing for Israel. Since the paleo population of the WB will bleed away into Jordan leaving the WB less populated and easier for the Israelis to acquire by inches.

#4 With all respect to General Naveh, his assessment in my view, is very long term. King Ab is a young man with very close ties to the US. He's not about to just roll over and play dead anytime soon. Ab has close paleo ties in the bedroom, and a pretty good security service.

#5 I think the islamists - all types - are amassing on the borders of Israel and on all sides. The 53,000 suicide boomers just signed that Iran boasts about. Women and children preferred as well. What would happen if hundreds of thousands of splodydopes (women and children included) swarmed Israel from all sides, all at once.

A pathetic and barbaric tidal wave of psychotic human bombs? Dropping from above, swarming through checkpoints. The carnage and horror would be unimaginable. Right up their alley though. They'd send millions to erase Israel - its the goal that counts.

#6 That is why most everything hinges on Iran. The M²s are providing the resources for this and a lot of other madness in the neighborhood. Take the Iranian money out of this and you have a garbage and sewage infested seethe fest in Gaza and the West Bank, nothing more. Now it's becoming more of an ammo dump. Hey, that gives me an idea......

#7 All the more reason to cut allPaleo funding. People will know the west is serious about not funding governments sponsoring terrorism. Iran and Saudi Arabia can either decide to finance the new Islamic states (which means that oil must flow), or they can decide not to. If they don't then the Jordanians and Egyptians will know that they will starve.

#8 May miracles never cease. However, Twins Jacob(Israel) and Esau(Jordan) were reconciled after many years of estrangement. Isaiah 19 is very interesting:
“I will stir up Egyptian against Egyptian—brother will fight against brother,neighbor against neighbor,city against city,kingdom against kingdom.The Egyptians will lose heart,and I will bring their plans to nothing;....So the LORD will make himself known to the Egyptians, and in that day they will acknowledge the LORD. They will worship with sacrifices and grain offerings; they will make vows to the LORD and keep them....In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria. The Assyrians will go to Egypt and the Egyptians to Assyria. The Egyptians and Assyrians will worship together. In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing on the earth. The LORD Almighty will bless them, saying, “Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance.” May it be!

#10 Jordan was always a toy kingdom where the British, later replaced by USA, kept their spare Hashemites---in case they need a regime change in Saudia.
