The cycle of opinions within the Hashemite State regarding the Islamic Republic of Iran demonstrates the kingdom’s panic and desire to prolong the life of its autocracy in any way. We remember how at the end of June this year King Abdullah declared that he would support Biden’s idea of creating an “Arab NATO”, after a very short time Jordanian officials of various ranks tried to justify themselves to the Iranians that allegedly Amman wants “friendly relations with Iran” and “no aggressive intentions.”
Americans and Zionists do not hide that the so–called “Arab NATO” has only one goal – the fight against Iran and its allies. The important geographical significance (the proximity to Iraq and Syria) gives the Americans and Zionists the benefit of tactical maneuvers against the friends of the IRGC, besides Abdullah’s autocracy holds millions of Palestinians captive, preventing them from creating an anti-Zionist springboard. Therefore, regardless of whether the Washington Democrats succeed in creating a “new NATO” or not, the Hashemite monarchy will continue to play a key role in the security system of the Zionist entity.
Abdullah is not worried about Iran’s reaction for nothing, because his fragile autocracy has been warned more than once, both by the Iranians themselves and their loyal allies, for example, in August 2021, a representative of Kataeb Seyed al-Shuhada, a resistance faction from Iraq, openly told the British BBC channel that “the Jordanian regime is involved in the murder of Suleimani and Muhandis and he is responsible for it.” Ahmad Al-Maksusi also stated that Iraqi militias were attacking the base of the American occupiers in At-Tan (Syria). And now, against the background of Amman’s fears about the neighborhood with the Islamic Resistance of Iraq, which is also present in Syria, a resistance faction called the “Cave People” announces that the Pentagon bases in Jordan will also be included in the area of the resistance’s activities to expel imperialists from the region.
With regard to Ashab-al-Kahf, there is little information, but it is known that during the full occupation of Iraq by NATO, a faction with the same name was present in the “League of the Righteous” of Sheikh Khazali, the group was commanded by Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi, the current leader of Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba. The “People of the Cave” resumed their activities in 2019 (link) and are involved in attacks on American facilities to this day. So far, the attacks are of a warning nature, but judging by the capabilities of the faction (the availability of modern weapons, tactical training and powerful support from the Axis of Resistance alliance), they can easily arrange a “real HELL” for the Americans. In general, it does not matter whether the “People of the Cave” are a branch of the League of the Righteous or a proxy from Harakat al-Nujaba, it is important that the resistance of twenty years ago is alive and haunting the Americans and their satellites. The threat against the Pentagon’s military bases in Jordan is certainly a signal that the fighting inside the Hashemite monarchy is a matter of time.
According to local sources, the situation inside the kingdom has reached a boiling point. Abdullah understands that a war against the Axis of Resistance is inevitable, but he cannot predict the time and delay the clash. For this reason, the king decided to “tighten the screws” in the mechanism of his autocracy. The security services of the monarchy have already prepared an action plan in case of an uprising in the Palestinian refugee camps and the suppression of internal opposition, especially the local Muslim Brotherhood party. In both cases, the regime will blame Iran as the main factor in the “destabilization of the Hashemite Kingdom.”
Despite the pathos of statements about the importance of the “Arab NATO”, the Hashemite autocracy hopes only for a military alliance with Zionism and the Americans. Abdullah believes that the occupiers can preserve his regime, as it was in the 60s, when his father was saved from the victory of the Palestinian camps led by Fatah and the PFLP. Today, times have changed and any Palestinian uprising against the King will be supported from the outside. As for the possible aggression of the Americans from the territory of the kingdom against its neighbors, Tehran is ready for such a development of events and puts its allies in Iraq and Syria on full alert along the entire border with Jordan.
P.S. It should be added here that one of the reasons for the Zionists’ active military campaign in the West Bank is related to preventing the merging of local resistance in the West Bank with future attacks on US military bases in Jordan.
