They're having very critical days, the situation isn't stable or promising at all. I wish they stay safe as king and queen...

Even if I always thought that King Abdallah and Queen Rania were not a good example for good ruling, I still believe that kicking out the King and his family is not the solution, what do the jordanians want to do after that??? This is a very sensitive area, especially with what's happening now in the neighbour countries in Gaza and Syria...and kicking out the King would make rather Jordan weaker and unstable. The bad economic situation is a fact in all the world, there will be no miracle if the King leaves, I think jordanians have to think together with their King about how to resolve their problems, like corruption, oligarchy of the royal family and so on...

Unfortunately about what happening in jordan ,,, Jordanians protested Due to the increase of fuel prices ,,, Increased 4 or 5 euros from the old prices ,,,, But they have to understanding that , The country is in critical situation Economically & Jordan has a lot of debt ,,, They should understand That ,,,, Ok they have right to be angry because Jordanians employee's salary is low & they can not live with high prices ,,,, But if they continue protesting they will ruin their country as the other countries in region ruined ,,,,, Although the public security chief said Behind the confusion in jordan streets is the syrian refugees because They arrested a group of Syrians refugess who making that protests ,,,, I believe That the Monarchy is better thing for jordan
Wish all the best for Jordan , GOD save jordan & jordanians & The Monarchy

the King needs to go??? seariously, what makes a Republic better than a Constituinal Monarchy? believe me, none...i dont know what they want to have after (if it really happens) the King is gone (and i hope it doesnt), the man governements arent perfect and are full of faults.
if it was dictatorism or absolute monarchy, then i think i shouldnt object it, but it isnt.
i hope this issues dont take serious turns in the future!

Well said Sephora.
King Abdullah has proposed very intersting plan for reforms that the Jordanians should discus everythings could go down hell if Abdullah go,economic crisis is global issue I don't think that changing regimes would solve it.

Analysis: Jordan's king pinched by absence of Gulf aid | Reuters

What is there to discuss? There has been a wave of revolutions and the civil war. It appears that people in the region believe that changes will be for the better.

if they think so and they are majority then it's their right to have the change they want even if I don't think that might change anything,there is no good ruler but suitable one and I hoenstely think if Rania stayed away from state political issues King Abdullah would have good chance to solve the whole thing,at least he is not shooting his ppl for going out to protest.

It remains to be seen whether or not the problems will be addressed. King Abdullah can not quell the unrest because it is bad PR. Jordianian police and special forces could work on identifying and quietly removing those fomenting the unrest.

unrest hasn't started yesterday or even last week in Jordan,since the beginning of the arab spring Jordanians go out to protest every friday and yet the King reaction was quit wise I agree that we should wait to see how things will be in the futur but it's fair to say that for now things didn't go wild thanks to the authorities reaction .

I don't understand why the world keeps calling that "the arab spring". The unrest in the arab world didn't start just after the tunisian revolution, arabs were always in revolution since the 50's, they made many putschs and kicked out most royal families, and time had shown that the rulers who came after were not better than the Monarchs, they were even worst...I believe the best and healthiest way to progress, is to make good reforms, and to have the goodwill to apply them, as for the economic crisis, there will no miracle just because you change the ruler, especially when the country is poor and doesn't have so much natural ressources to fight for. Also, in this difficult time, they shoud pay attention to the stabilitity of their country, this is the most important, it has no price!!!

No idea why the people in this region believe that the change is better ,,, and no idea why the people following some countries in region has been ruined because of that change and I bet no one of these countries will be better than past ,,, unfortunately from worse to worst ,, I'm not understanding this point , how they taking wrong examples and follow it

I wish people of Jordan become wiser and stop protesting to keep their country safe ,,,, because the change will ruin their country as other countries in region has been ruined .
