It Took Only Five Days to Come True

It only took five days. Yes, five days ago I reported that, due to an incredibly elevated number of Jordanians that are sympathetic to the radical regime in charge of Iran, it would not be long before Jordan succumbed and slid into the Iranian sphere. Well, it appears to have happened.

This column in yesterday's Jerusalem Post tells the story.

Slouching towards Teheran

Two weeks ago, Iran scored a massive victory. Jordan, the West’s most stable and loyal ally in the Arab world, began slouching towards the Iranian Gomorrah.
On December 12, Ahmadinejad’s chief of staff Esfandiar Rahim Mashaei met with Jordanian King Abdullah II in Amman and extended a formal invitation from Ahmadinejad for him to pay a state visit to Iran. Abdullah accepted.
According to Iran’s ISNA news agency, Mashaei said that Abdullah’s visit will begin a new page in bilateral relations and that “the two countries hold massive potential to work together.”
Mashaei added, “If Islamic states stand united, no country will be threatened.”
Abdullah reportedly said that his country recognizes Iran’s nuclear rights and supports its access to peaceful nuclear technology.
Abdullah was one of the first world leaders to sound the alarm on Iran. In 2004, Abdullah warned of a “Shi’ite crescent” extending from Iran to Iraq, through Syria to Lebanon. His words were well reported at the time. But his warning went unheeded.
In the intervening six years, reality has surpassed Abdullah’s worst fears. Not only Lebanon and Syria have fallen under Iranian control. Iraq, Turkey, Qatar, Gaza and increasingly Oman, Yemen and Afghanistan are also either willing or unwilling members of the axis.
In the face of Iran’s expanding web of influence and the mullahs’ steady progress towards nuclear capability, Washington behaves as though there is no cause for concern. And the likes of Jordan are beside themselves.

With the leadership in Washington being totally unreliable (possibly due to the fact that the Obama Administration has no clue what it is doing when it comes to the Middle East), it is understandable that Jordan thinks about its survival by bowing to the one power that seems to know exactly where it is going and what it wants to accomplish. It is also possible that Jordan sees that handwriting on the wall and has decided it must unite with Tehran or be destroyed. Obviously, no one from the West is going to come to Jordan, or Israel's rescue.
What a sad commentary on the joker in the White House!
