THOUSANDS Protest Pro-American King in Jordan – One Killed (Video)

Thousands Called for the Overthrow of Dictator King Abdullah today in massive street protests.

The Jordanian king is one of the last pro-American leaders in the region.
News AU reported:

A “GUNMAN” has been killed and 12 Jordanian policemen wounded as a police station came under attack in the northern city of Irbid in Jordan, state media reported.

The incident came a day after Jordan was hit by a wave of angry protests over a huge rise in fuel prices, with rioting and clashes erupting in Amman and other cities and another police station attacked.

“Twelve policemen were injured when a group of gunmen attacked a police station in Irbid. One of the gunmen died in a shootout, while four others were wounded,” said a police statement carried by state-run Petra news agency.

“All the wounded were taken to hospital. Some of the policemen are in serious condition,” it said.

A sudden fuel price hike has drawn sharp condemnation from Jordan’s opposition Islamists, who warned of civil disobedience and increased opposition to the government in the run-up to general elections in January, which they are boycotting.

Angry protesters on Wednesday blocked a main road in downtown Amman as police warned they would use force if necessary to open the road.

    Oh dear. Jordan has been one of the most stable countries in the mideast – if not THE most stable other than Israel, for close to a hundred years.

    This is the last place the world needs an “arab spring.”

    SO now BenghaziBarrak wants to kill Abdullah of Jordan too ?

    They will topple this gov’t too and soon the Muslim Brotherhood will have Israel surrounded. No thanks to Obama, with the help of our tax money. Soon they’ll have their Caliphate empire.

  • Things seem to be getting real bad real quick. To quote Han Solo, “I have a bad feeling about this.”

  • the protests are probably organized by our state dept. are we senting them guns yet?

  • Israel forever

    If I didn’t know better from my schooling at the NYT School of Truth, I might get the impression that these Muslims are rather violent people motivated by the teachings found in their koran.

    BTW, Jordan is Palestine.

    Now hold on a moment. King Abdullah is said to be a direct descendent of Mohammad and didn’t Sheik Nazim not too long ago declare him to be Caliph? So what’s the problem?

  • dwd

    And Obama calls for the King of Jordan to step down in 3, 2, 1…

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    A sudden fuel price hike has drawn sharp condemnation from Jordan’s opposition Islamists,…

    What is it with these crybabies? Do they expect to be pampered all of their damned lives?

    If something happens in Jordan, I hope Abdullah returns to Calfiornia. It would be nice to run into him every now and then while riding around on my motorcycle (he’s a fellow rider).

  • UN Security Council will meet in about an hour from now to discuss Israel military airstrike

    Right on cue….Obama’s World Peace plan marches forward…>

  • ★FALCON★

    Obumbles hasn’t yet put down his Benghazi inquiry and he’s moving on his next target.

    The Anti-Christ has nothing on Obama.

    Fraudulent elections, murdered border agents, murdered SEALS, murdered Ambassadors, deals with the Godless Kremlin, FEMA Camps, body scanners, carbon hoax, railing against those that have made an honest living, and telling the laziest, most worthless that they have been cheated out of a fortune they never lifted a finger to retrieve.

    I only pray I am still alive to see this insane vandal of America’s glory and humanity’s rightful place get his.

    That’s called a target rich environment. I hope our space based missile system malfunctions like the voting software.

  • ★FALCON★

    Make no mistake – the UN and Obama will move against Israel. That was what the “Responsibility to Protect” was all about.

    Obama and the UN are messing with a deadly deadly fire.

  • democraps suck

    I’m telling you people…wake up…mooslimes HATE Americans and want to kill us…now they have another 4 years with their BROTHER in charge…arm yourselves heavily….and if you think this is just BS talk…just wait…..

    This is OBAMAS Libya, Egypt, Syria, now Jordan clusterf*ck. He aids these rebels.

  • HeavenHelpUSA

    Is this why we have already sent troops over to Jordan. . .did they suspect/know this was coming (maybe even spurred it on)? We sent troops to Jordan earlier this fall under the guise of helping refugees from neighboring Syria (who’s rebels are using US weapons; great, our troops will be coming under fire from American weapons in the hands of radicals). We are confident that BHO’s grimy paws are all of this too (just like the overthrow in Egypt, Libya, tragedy in Benghazi. . .he’s stirring up the Middle East to hand it all over the the Muslim Brotherhood)–JMHO

    The Lord, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the human spirit within a person, declares: “I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves. On that day I will strike every horse with panic and its rider with madness,” declares the Lord. “I will keep a watchful eye over Judah, but I will blind all the horses of the nations. Then the clans of Judah will say in their hearts, ‘The people of Jerusalem are strong, because the Lord Almighty is their God.’
    “On that day I will make the clans of Judah like a firepot in a woodpile, like a flaming torch among sheaves. They will consume all the surrounding peoples right and left, but Jerusalem will remain intact in her place.

    How the heck is Jordan having massive rise in price of fuel when most of their support comes from the neighbor to the south which has one of the largest reserves of oil on the planet.

    Somethings smells fishy. . .
    Like it was being done intentionally

    Maybe THIS is why Ambassador Stevens was killed. . .

  • snap boy

    It’s hard to imagine that once Arabs were educated and civilized.

  • all this is courtesy of BHO~ I hope you O voters are happy- soon the mid east will be out and out Muslim !

  • jb

    Don’t blaspheme the Lord’s word . . .

    We are reaping what our leaders and the Israelis have sown . . .

    And it is precisely what has been desired . . . an oil-rich region in turmoil.

    That Americans and supposed “conservatives” are so absolutely brain dead as to not see the reality is astounding.

    Be sure to send you kids to die in the next war.

    how Photoshopped is that!! 😀

    You really need to get over yourself, and your very stupid ad hominem attacks on anyone who doesn’t agree with your very unhistorical assessments.

    And were you to spend some time studying history, as Hoft sorely needs to do as well (but since he already knows everything he has no need to do so), you might find yourself coming to far different conclusions. Of course, that will involve serious thought, which might be a bit of an obstacle, but I have faith you can do it.

    And for the record, it is you who are the liberal, not me. Again, a matter of history, were you so inclined to know and understand.

  • Joanne

    Jordan’s turn now.

  • Will

    @jb – a matter of whose history? Give your source.

  • carrier pigeon

    jb–take a chill I’ll dude.

    You’re right though about not wanting to send our kids in a war against Israel. But it’s because of what Will said.

  • carrier pigeon

    Of course maybe it is that you don’t want us helping Israel. Okay. But I disagree. Anyway I don’t think Israel trusts our help–at least I how they don’t. Don’t put it past O to returns to help and then do harm to Israel instead. Romney was Israel’s friend, not O. Not by any stretch. O has that ring praising his god allah, and ge’s already said “if it comes to it I will side with the Moslems.” We’ll, it ‘s “coming to it.”. Really sucks that we have O as prez.

    If Jordan falls to the Islamo-fascists, that’s Obama’s goal…it appears, to manipulate Israel.

    i remeber last year saudi arbia give JOrdan like 4 billion dollors to keep the price of basic stuff like fuel, rice, cooking oil, etc. Low. Guess that did not work!
