Saudi Crown Prince Supported Israeli "Scheme" For Jordan Coup: Report

Click to see full-size image

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman allegedly backed an Israeli “scheme” to overthrow Jordanian King Abdullah II in exchange for the guardianship of al-Aqsa Mosque in the occupied Old City of Jerusalem.

Lebanon’s Al Akhbar newspaper, quoting a Jordanian security official, said that the coup attempt against King Abdullah II was a “scheme” involving Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and the United States.

According to the unnamed official, Israel planned the coup against the Jordanian king over Amman’s opposition to the so-called US deal of the century, which allows the Tel Aviv regime to annex settlements in the occupied West Bank and the Jordan Valley.

As per the source said bin Salman, with US approval, had authorized the Saudi royal court to make the necessary preparations for the transfer of power at the family level, and had tasked former Fatah leader Muhammad Dahlan with mobilizing Palestinians in Jordan and local tribes.

The unnamed official referred to the plot as “large and complicated” and underlined that the coup involved many parties but the Jordanian King had succeeded in foiling it.

“The king’s vigilance and the rapid movement of the military and security forces have thwarted the coup’s attempt to remove him and replace him with his brother Prince Hamzah bin Hussein,” the official added.

According to reports, a long-time confidante of King Abdullah II and Sharif Hassan bin Zaid, a member of the royal family, have been arrested, while Prince Hamzah bin Hussein, a former crown prince and the king’s half-brother, has been put under house arrest.

King Abdullah II has ruled Jordan since the 1999 death of his father, King Hussein, who ruled the country for close to half a century. King Abdullah II removed Prince Hamzah as heir to the throne in 2004.

Separately, Iran said that there’s been significant progress in Vienna, where talks to salvage the JCPOA are taking place.

There are indications that the US and Iran might reach some sort of agreement, and it appears promising. It is likely that both Israel and Saudi Arabia are against such a conditional normalization, and could attempt to sabotage it, somehow.

    MBS is the shame of the Arab world, someone should take it out of the equation.

    If this is true then this might drive him closer to either Iran or Turkey or, if he is a coward, he will capitulate to the Israeli/Saudi/U.S. axis.

      That would really piss MBS, the US,UK France and Nuttyyahoo off :)

    well that’s life, you’re either for and with us or you’re against us, message from prime slime jared kushner via naziyahu himself. but there is an opening in that saudi has been getting closer to Iran lately and suggested to start talking peace in Yemen which would indicate that mohammed bin salman, of fake leonardo da vinci purchase at 450 million bucks, is a bit more apprehensive and can hear the knives being prepared in the outer halls of the palace by his cousins.

    Not so surprising that the Dönmeh Saudis and Frankist Israel make and take kings, who are descendants of Muhammad – just for their NWO 3rd temple…
