RE: Jordan

Georges Monbrunot has been quite vocal about the King's desire to challenge and bring to heel the Muslim Brotherhood. It may be all about the impatient US demand to cut off the diversion of charity money into the Iraqi insurgency or at the very least, Jordanian operatives in Iraq. Of course, as this information has come from the press, it could be just sensationalist speculation. Nevertheless, I would start off by asking if US Arabists have had a look at this new legislation which is said to incorporate draconian curtailments of free speech, freedom of assembly, etc..

Some believe Abdullah has just paved his way to exile by his proposed legisation against the Brotherhood.
