Besides, Jordan is a sovereign nation, no one else can interfere in the succession of its monarchy..they'd have no reason to, because Abdullah's son is his natural heir according to the law in Jordan, the same law that applies to monarchies all over the world.
I don't think any1 protested when Abdullah was sent to UK and P Hassan was made CP instead of the eldest King' son- u know and I know that the succession here , in this country, does not always pass from father to son- u're talking matters here as if Jordan Gov and its Parliament really has a say in any Jordan's issues. So, u're happy about this mess, ok, suit yourself, u know, I never join a KA or a QR's thread, what for, just to state my strong dislike for those 2s ? It would be a waste of time.

yes I know now P hussein is the crown prince by default.
Well, so, if a King makes his brother his CP by Royal Decree ,what, in your opinion does it mean, does it mean that the King is merely making a fool of his late father's wishes and of his brother ? I'm a patient person, I'll be waiting here and just c what will happen to the golden couple,for how long will their adventure last - is KA really such a great King, is he so self- assured, now ? as I read somewhere in the last days-: KA is feeling insecure, that's why all this haste, if he had to betray and to forget his promise, he could at least have been waiting til his son reached his 18th b-day.

There was only ONE incident of a brother of the King being made CP, ie. Prince Hassan. The constitution has always stated that the King's son inherits and it has always been that way in Jordan.
I read one of your other posts and you said that in Jordan, the King is the law. So it would seem to me that you would prefer the King to flout the law every time in order to put his "favourite" on the throne. King Hussein made that mistake with his brother. Isnt it better for his son Abdullah to correct that mistake? Or do you think that because Jordan isnt a democracy, makes it right for the King to go on doing as he wants and not pay any attention to what the constitution says?
And I am not happy about the situation. I dont know what gave you that idea. I was shocked and disappointed like most people. Just because Im defending the rule of law doesnt mean Im a die-hard Abdullah and Rania supporter. You seem to have ignored all the posts i've written criticizing the couple. I am not one to let my partiality for a particular member of the JRF cloud my judgement. Besides, we have no say in the matter. The decision is best for Jordan and Jordanians.

This has been repeated twice within the last five years. KH, on his death bed, took the title from his very capable brother Prince Hassan and passed it to his eldest son. And you all must admit, Prince Hassan is an experienced statesman and he would have made an excellent King. And once again, history is repeating itself, KA has stripped the CP title from his very capable half-brother who is VERY popular in Jordan despite his absence and his young age....and all of that to ensure that the throne remains in his nuclear family.
yes, KA just thought of what it was best for himself ,his wife and his son, at least KH knew Hamzah would make a great King, how can KA know that the same applies to his son, being P Hussein just a kid of 10 ? Was KA thinking of his country, or what it was best for it, when he took that decision, well, no, of course, he was not-I bet QR will go to a shopping trip in NY or Paris, as she finally has had her way. She has been struggling so much these last 5 years, poor woman, she deserves a break., she's the winner ! PS- I'm thinking of the article- The battle of wives-

The amendment was to Article 28, (a) Chapter Four; The Executive Power; Part 1; The King and his Perogatives. The amendment was then recorded in the Official Gazette No. 1831 of 1/4/1965. I was sent this information this very morning by someone after a long discussion. It reads as follows :

(a) The Royal title shall pass from the holder of the Throne to his eldest son, and to the eldest son of that son and in linear sucession by a similar process thereafter. Should the eldest son die before the Throne devolves upon him, his eldest son shall inherit the Throne, despite the existance of brothers to the deceased son. The King may, however, select one of his brothers as heir apparent. In this event, title to the Throne shall pass to him from the holder of the Throne.

So no provision for a nephew. Without further parliamentary amendments, Prince Hassan had but two choices. His son Rashid or his brother Mohammed who had already been passed over in the matter because of ill health. King Hussein did not read the small print, or did not choose to give it importance. Maybe being an absolute ruler for over forty years does that to you !
Well, ok, I never said P Hassan had a say in all that, though Queen Zein had it, anyway, why was Ali Heir Apparent from 1975 to 1998, a Heir Apparent is some1 who is to succeed the country CP, if I remember well. What I'm saying is that the King in this country is the Constitution.

Who was present at KH's last b-day, plz, check the pic : Aisha, Alia, Zein, Hashim, Hamzah, QN, Hayah, Iman and Raiyah- no Abdullah, his wife, or even Feisal- Who was at KH's bedsite at Mayo Clinic for about 7 months ,24 hours over 24,? Only Hamzah and Noor.

the best answer to those who are thinking Hamzah had no right to be King 1 day.

You choose to believe in the validity of rumours regarding Abduallah, Rania, Muna etc and yet not the ones regarding Queen Noor. What about the assertion that Queen Noor actually prevented anyone but herself and her kids from seeing King Hussein right before his death? That way she could influence him much strongly. Im not saying those rumours might be true, but I do think you should be fair instead of being partial. Although I understand thats not possible for some who only looks for evidence to support their own side of the story.

Ali was never Heir Apparent. King Hussein wrote a much publicised 'open' letter to Prince Hassan on the eve of his marriage to Queen Noor, in which he said that in the future, he would like Prince Hassan to consider Ali as his heir, taking precedence over his older sons, Abdullah and Feisal, as their mother had not been born a Muslim. Not my words or conclusion, just what the letter actually said. This letter was written in 1978, before Prince Rashid was born, to a 31 year old Prince Hassan. It just shows again that King Hussein was not thinking things through as it was not inconceivable that at this still young age the Prince Hassan might have a son whose arrival change the whole landscape, which is what happened. I actually feel quite sorry for Prince Rashid who seems to mind his own business and get on with life, but whose birth was unfortunately the catalyst that resulted in his father's being removed from a job he had worked hard at for many years.

I still think about what KA said to PH "CP is only a honorary position".
We all know it was only an excuse to remove PH. But KA couldn't say something else? what he said means as KA doesn't care if something bad happen to him and the next king of Jordan is not experienced. Does KA cares more about the power than the interest of the country?
Anyway I think with his son, the title will not be honorary.

my friend in Jordan watched it, she told me that P.Hamzah's face looked very depressed, that him and Hashem looked completely out of it.

lol i thought so too , but even though they looked depressed,they looked just cute ( i just cudnt help but say that again and again)
I agree with u ,Hamzah looks like the type that keeps his anger inside he hides his feelings and never let them out,which isn't good at all :(

I couldn't help but notice the way everyone's been blaming the entire thing on the women. I wouldn't blame Queen Rania or Princess Muna for anything. This was King Abdullah's decision in the end.

As for Queen Noor, she was queen for her time and now it's over. She should be a part of Prince Hamzah's support system no matter what his fate would have been. I believe that this is the way she's thinking right now. Whether or not she's dissapointed, I don't see her broadcating to the world any thoughts other than those of her support for King Abdullah.

Prince Hamzah is a gentleman and loyal to the throne, as was his uncle. So it is not surprising that he should be at the opening of Parliament. I will never forget the dignity with which Prince Hassan took King Abdullah to Parliament to be sworn in as King, and also how he was the the very first Jordanian the next day to swear allegience to his nephew at the 'Salam' ceremony. That man has always been a class act which many other people would do well to try and emulate.

that was my point. Both sides have plenty of rumours directed at them. There's no point, then, in blindly believing one side and totally ignoring the other.

I agree with you. I don't think Q Rania had anything to do with KA's decision. KA is a man who simply wanted his son to be king after him. According to the Jordanian Constitution, P. Hussein is the heir to the throne. I'm sure P. Hamzah always knew that one day KA would want his own son to be king. P. Hamzah has the whole world ahead of him now. He can choose his own path. P. Hussein cannot - his path has been chosen for him. So has KA's.

Let's stop blaming the women. And if Q Noor is having a fit, she should get over it. She had no business trying to position P. Hamzah to inherit the throne. And KH should have used more wisdom regarding the matters of succession by simply abiding by the Constitution, and not openly favoring one sone over the others when the other sons have done nothing wrong.

I haven't seen any pictures or news of P. Noor since the big wedding back in May. Anyone out there in Jordan knows what she's up to? Do you think she may be pregnant, and that's why KA decided to make the switch in succession now?

Princess Noor being pregnant wouldn't have affected the succession issue. Im sure Abdullah knows that Noor and Hamzah, as a married couple, are going to have kids eventually.

well, I feel sorry for Hamzah... anyway, this letter to P Hassan , in which KH talked about Ali be P Hassan's CP in the future just shows that a nephew could succeed the King-

we can clearly c it from the pix- I wish Hamzah would finally fight all this back as it's very unfair, who knows ,he could have many supporters., if he didn't oblige, once again, to KA, .. isn't QN at least trying to do something about it ?

P. Hamza web site still figure "PH Crown Prince". Maybe he doesn't have yet the time to change that! There is also what KA said about duties of CP:

"The Crown Prince is ... the Throne's reserve & the King's right-hand man. He is the one being prepared today to carry out responsabilities that will be given to him in future."
His Majesty King Abdullah II (Al Hayat Newspaper, 12 May 1999)


Is this what embrassed KA?
I found also a picture of PH with KA and QR in the coronation day. I think it was taken later that day, QR hair is different :) and also the king suit
