Saudi Arabia has requested the assistance of the United States to intercede with Israel in order to replace Jordan in the management of the Al Aqsa Mosque, in the Arab sector of Jerusalem, in order to provide its guarantee of “Guardians of the holy places of Islam” to the deal of the century, concocted by the American presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner with the Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Nethanyahu.
One hundred years after the expulsion of Cherif Hussein from Mecca, the conflict of legitimacy between the Hashemites and the Wahhabis suddenly rebounded on the occasion of the transaction of the century. The triple summit of Mecca, organized by King Salman of Arabia, on May 30, 2019, the last Friday of the fasting month of Ramadan, was the scene of this pass of arms. The triple summit was intended to make his Arab and Muslim peers endorse the selling off of Palestine according to a scheme developed by the Gulf petromonarchies, with the complicity of the Israelis and the Americans.
In power for 20 years, Abdullah II has seen his kingdom downgraded in the regional strategic order for the benefit of Saudi Arabia since Donald Trump’s accession to the American presidency and the partnership forged between Saudi Crown Prince Mohamad Ben Salman, and Jared Kushner, an active member of the American Jewish lobby.
Commando operation of King Abdullah of Jordan in Mecca.
In what looks like a commando operation, King Abdullah II of Jordan disembarked from his private plane at Mecca airport on May 30, 2019, dressed in the white pilgrim’s outfit, in the company of his close guard. , going directly to the holy places to make “the little pilgrimage” (Manassek Al Omra), before showing up at the headquarters of the summit of Mecca.
With this brilliant stroke, Abdallah II of Jordan wanted to burn politeness to his Saudi host, as if to signify to him in the subliminal order that the master of the house in Mecca, was himself, the great-grandson of the Cherif Hussein, not the Wahhabi usurper.
The Sharif Hussein of Mecca was overthrown in 1925 by the Wahhabis, victim of the duplicity of the English… “With the fall of the Ottoman Empire, Hussein became king of the independent Hedjaz with the tacit agreement of the Foreign Office. The British nevertheless continued to maintain another ally, Ibn Saoud the Wahhabite, enemy of Hussein the Hashemite, who set out to conquer the peninsula. In 1925, Ibn Saud took Mecca, putting an end to almost a millennium of Hashemite sheriffate ”.

The Arab and Hashemite prophet “Al Nabiyyou Al Arabi Al Hashemi”.
The message had to be unambiguous. Speaking at the opening of the Mecca summit, the Jordanian monarch will repeat it as if to drive the point home. For the first time in an international forum, calling his Muslim and Arab peers to witness, the King of Jordan, head of the Hashemite dynasty, spoke of “the Arab and Hashemite prophet -Nabiyyou Al Arabi Al Hashemi”, qualifying in the process King of Morocco, head of the Alaouite dynasty, of “Cousin Germain-Ibn Ammi”.
For the Arabic-speaking readership, the qualified prophet at the top of Mecca “Al Nabiyyou Al Arabi Al Hachemi”, on this link
A statement that left the Saudis speechless, unaccustomed to such language discrepancies on the part of many Arab and Muslim leaders, most of them receiving their subsidies.
The King of Jordan is the “guardian of the holy places of Islam in Jerusalem” including the Al Aqsa Mosque, the base of its legitimacy, and the King of Morocco, the chairman of the “Al Quds” committee.
Long underground allies of Israel, the Jordanian in the Mashreq, the Moroccan in the Maghreb, seem to be suffering from their downgrading in the Atlanticist strategy, relinquished in favor of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates of their traditional role as a springboard for Atlanticist intrigues in destination of the Arab world.

The King of Morocco, a “first cousin”
Unusually, King Abdullah of Jordan called King Mohamad VI of Morocco a “first cousin” before an assembly of notables in Jerusalem. Never before had the Hashemite monarch mentioned such a relationship with the head of the Alawite dynasty. Doing so in front of representatives of a city whose fate is at stake, Abdallah II wanted to suggest the common membership of the two kings to the same religious lineage and therefore their solidarity in the defense of the holy places of Islam.
The decision of US President Donald Trump to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to transfer the US embassy from Tel Aviv to it was accompanied by the recognition of the responsibility of the Israeli government in the management of the Holy Places, and, by as a consequence, the implicit abolition of Jordanian tutelage over The Muslim Holy Places.
This measure was felt as a major snub for Abdallah II who considers himself the guarantor of the 3rd Holy Place of Islam, Jerusalem, exercising his prerogatives not as King of Jordan, but as head of the Hashemite dynasty, descendant of the family of the prophet.
In the background of a permanent financial blackmail of Saudi Arabia, Jordan, without energy resources, bending moreover under the burden of the weight of the Syrian refugees, – of the order of 2 million people in the Kingdom, – is on the verge of financial apoplexy.
Superimposed on constant pressure from the United States to curb the normalization of its relations with Syria, this fact deprived the Kingdom of substantial income resulting from the transit of goods to the Arab hinterland.
Saudi blackmail on Jordanian nuclear power, – of which Crown Prince Mohamad Ben Salman claims participation in its exploitation on Saudi territory in return for the American green light -, as well as the deprivation of Jordanian supervision over the Muslim Holy Places of Jerusalem testify to the great loneliness of the Hashemite monarchy and the contempt of its traditional allies towards it. It led the monarch to seek to break his isolation by making an alliance with his cousin from the Maghreb, the King of Morocco, “Commander of the Believers” and Israel’s new official ally.
In February 2021, Jordanian Crown Prince Hussein had to give up going to the Jerusalem Mosque to mark the attachment of the Hashemite throne to this Muslim holy place, under the effect of conditions binding by Israel upon his arrival.
In retaliation, Jordan banned the overflight of its airspace to the plane that was to transport Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Abu Dhabi for his first official visit since normalization between the United Arab Emirates and the Hebrew state, to the fall 2020.
Saudi blackmail on Jordanian nuclear power:
On the reasons for the latent war between Saudi Arabia and Morocco:
However, at the end of a quarrel of nearly a year, Saudi Arabia, under the double corrosive effect of the bombing of the facilities of the Saudi oil giant ARAMCO and the resounding setback of Najrane, marked by the occupation of a large portion of the province and the capture of a full Saudi battalion in September 2019 was forced to backpedal towards Morocco. A press release from the Gulf Oil Monarchies Union, published in October 2019, reaffirmed their full support for Morocco’s sovereignty and its policy aimed at ensuring its self-management over Western Sahara.
But, if the tension between Saudi Arabia and Morocco has dropped a notch, it nevertheless remains lively between Rabat and Abu Dhabi to the point that the association “Believers Without Borders” had to close its offices in Morocco in order to escape. to the anger that this untimely activist charity aroused among the population.
The underlying goals of the Mecca Triple Summit
By organizing on the last Friday of the month of Ramadan 2019 a triple summit in Mecca, the first of the High Holy Places of Islam, King Salman wanted to act, in the face of the world, the centrality of the Wahhabi dynasty on the Muslim sphere. And forcing its various components to subscribe to the new Judeo-Sunni partnership – the alliance of the petromonarchies of the Gulf and Israel against Iran – at the cost of relegating Palestine from the international agenda.
To do this, Arabia has criminalized all Islamist formations – the Muslim Brotherhood and its degenerative variations (Al Qaida, the Islamic State) – when it has been their absolute incubator, as well as the Lebanese Hezbollah, the Palestinian Hamas. and the Yemeni Houthis for fear they might one day offend him.
Pathological illustration of the mental disconnection of the Arab petromonarchies, the voluminous final communiqué of the triple summit was largely devoted to the denunciation of Iran, yet a founding member of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), completely ignoring the war of aggression of the oil wrens against Yemen, yet one of the poorest Arab and Muslim countries in the world, reserving only a thin incantatory paragraph on Palestine.
The devastating Wahhabism Tomahawk of the Grozny Conference (September 3-5, 2016).
The challenge to the spiritual leadership of the Saudi monarchy had already manifested itself five years earlier with the Grozny conference in September 2016, which had the effect of a tomahawk on Wahhabism.
Saudi Arabia, one of the great financiers of the planet, the country which shelters the Holy Places of Islam (Mecca and Medina), of which he has set himself up as a guardian to use them as a dynastic springboard, facing strong criticism from his own camp, has been almost blacklisted, while he is engaged in a formidable power struggle with his Iranian Shiite rival.
Symbol of the growing exacerbation aroused by the omnidirectional warmongering of Saudi Wahhabism as well as its dogmatic rigidity, the Salafist Wahhabi sect was purely and simply excluded from the Sunni family during the Congress in Grozny (Chechnya) which was held on 3 as of September 5, 2016. A decision which gives the measure of the degree of virulence of the conflict for the leadership of the Muslim world.
Unprecedented fact, this decision with devastating theological and diplomatic effects on the Saudi primate in the Muslim sphere was taken at a congress which brought together nearly 200 religious dignitaries, ulemas and Islamic thinkers from Egypt, Syria , Jordan, Algeria, Morocco, Sudan and Europe.
Braving Saudi wrath, the Grozny conference not only excluded Salafi Wahhabism from the definition of Sunnism, even from the framework of the Sunni community, but it also clearly condemned Saudi religious institutions, in particular the Islamic University of Medina. .
Inaugurated by the Sheikh of Al-Azhar, Ahmed al-Tayeb, the congress was marked by a strong Egyptian participation – the Grand Mufti of Egypt, Sheikh Shawki Allam, the adviser to the Egyptian president and the former Grand Mufti of Egypt, Sheikh Ali Jomaa, as well as by the presence of the Grand Mufti of Damascus, Sheikh Abdel Fattah al-Bezm, the Yemeni preacher Ali Al-Jiffri and the Islamic thinker Adnan Ibrahim.
In the statement, the participants agreed that “the people of Sunnism and those who belong to the Sunni community are the Asharites and the Maturidites, at the level of doctrine; the four schools of Sunni jurisprudence (Chaféite, Hanbalite, Hannafite and Malekite), at the level of practice; and the Sufis, at the level of gnosis, morals and ethics ”.

Epilogue: 1973 Faysal and the petroleum weapon
Under the aegis of King Faysal, (1953-1975), the use of petroleum weapons in support of the combined Syro-Egyptian offensive for the destruction of the Barlev Line, and the recovery of the Egyptian Sinai, as well as the Syrian Golan Heights, during the war of October 1973, propelled Saudi Arabia into the firmament of popularity, plunging almost the entire Muslim world into a state of prostration before the Wahhabi dynasty.
Forty-six years later, the building seems cracked and its face streaked with the stigmata of so much felony and turpitude.
The oldest servant of the United Kingdom of the colonial era benefited as a bonus for his servitude – service? – from the gratification of three kingdoms (The Hejaz, Iraq and Jordan), of which no one remains a hundred years later. , that one and only kingdom, Jordan, moreover reduced to its smallest portion – Transjordan – threatened to serve as a “substitute homeland” for the Palestinians. A prospect that King Abdullah II saw as a nightmare.
Israel’s longest-serving underground ally in the Arab world has played a powerful role in weakening its own camp, despite the assassination of King Abdullah I within the very grounds of Jerusalem’s Al Aqsa Mosque (1948), be it by the collective massacre of Palestinians during the Jordanian “Black September” (1970), or the leaks of King Hussein in the direction of the Israeli general staff on the preparations for the war of October 1973, without the slightest consideration than the survival of his throne.
Israel’s major ally in the Arab world, its lightning rod in the face of anti-Israeli activities in the area, the most fervent support of American teams on Arab soil, as illustrated by Jordan’s springboard role in the American invasion of Iraq (2003), and its destabilizing function on the southern Syrian front, in 2012-2016, is thus found on the occasion of the centenary of the Sykes-Picot agreements and the Balfour promise, in search of a new supporting role, with a new legitimacy.
Absorption of the remainder of Palestine by the Hashemite throne or subversion of the Kingdom by the Palestinian majority of the Jordanian population? In the wake of the Israeli-American strategy for its survival? In the wake of Saudi Arabia, at the risk of entering an area of strong turbulence? With its usual batch of destabilization operation, psychological warfare, intoxication and disinformation maneuvers in perspective, to bring back to the Western fold the lost sheep, which will for a time be – the time of its redemption – a black sheep?
The initiator of the “Great Arab Revolution” revealed himself a century later to be the architect of the greatest “Arab mystification”, a prelude to the sell-off of Palestine.
Jordan worked, in the wake of Arab collective normalization with Israel, in the fall of 2020, to establish a vertical alliance between Iraq, Jordan and Egypt, in a form of symbolic roadblock aimed at preventing too much promiscuity between the petromonarchies and the Hebrew State.
Inter-Hashemite dynastic dispute
As Jordan prepares to celebrate April 18, 2021, the first centenary of the proclamation of the Kingdom, the Hashemite dynastic is in the throes of a violent showdown between the King and his former crown prince, Prince Hamza. Hamza, son of Queen Nour, née Liza Al Halaby, daughter of the former director of PanAm and last wife of King Hussein, has been placed under house arrest on charges of conspiring against state security. The stakes are high in that an ouster from the power of King Abdullah II would deprive his son of access to the throne, and, at the same time, the possibility of a Palestinian being the King of Jordan, because Crown Prince Hussein is the son of Queen Rania, of Palestinian descent.
What about the Hashemites or the Wahhabis will triumph over this conflict of legitimacy? See you in the next century to find out the answer, as the question of the validity of American and Israeli guarantees arises in a nagging way in an area where the tandem is in ebb of power.
Restoration of the Hashemite primate
As soon as he arrived in Saudi Arabia Abdallah II went directly to Mecca to make the small pilgrimage there with his bodyguards.
