I am happy to see the Jordanian people stand up to that ass they call a king. How ever I am sad about the violence and destruction they are using to do it.
They need someone in office there that has the Jordanian people's interests at heart and I mean all the peoples not just the rich.
I have Lived in Jordan and have seen both sides of the coin.The poor scraping to get by just to feed their family and the rich getting richer. All the while that ass of a king going on lavish vacations throwing money around like it is nothing. Shame on you King Abdullah II !!

I have been in Jordan a few times did not like it what so ever. Just like you said Malik shame on you king abdallah Jordan is the heart of the Middle East. Jordanian people are afraid to speak there mind about the king they are so afraid of him if you want to live peaceful in your country you must make sure everyone is happy. King abdallah you have taught your people to be evil. Jordanian people are very disrespectful to any visitor that comes to Jordan they are cery rude. Everyone should have a right to speak there mind. One more thing fix your damn country clean it up be more organized treat people with respect, either there rich or poor you don't have middle class For cryin out load Palestine is more organized and cleaner than your country. If you want to higher prices then raise their wages if the average person makes 165 jod and the gas is 11 jod a bottle they are gonna need at least 4 a month that is 44 jod people are left with 121 jod for rent food and utilities besides all there personal exoenses now that is bullshit KING ABDULLAH FIX YOUR COUNTRY HELP YOUR PEOPLE MAKE THEM HAPPY MAKE THEM RESPECT YOU AND NIT YO BE AFRAID OF YOU
