King Abdullah II of Jordan made new statements regarding his crisis with his brother, Prince Hamzah bin Al Hussein, considering that everyone has limits, even if he is a member of the royal family, and that the absolute powers are only for the king.
In an interview with CNN, King Abdullah II said, in reference to Prince Hamzah’s crisis: “If you are a member of the royal family, you have privileges, but with limitations, and politics is limited to the king.”
In his speech, the King of Jordan added, “It is easy to exploit Prime Time Zone’s grievances to achieve personal agendas, but are you honest while you are trying to do so?”
He pointed out that “we usually look at crises in isolation without understanding the path that a country like Jordan has gone through.”

He continued, “Jordan is still Jordan, despite all the shocks, and this reflects the steadfastness of Jordanians, and Jordan’s approach has always been to look to the future.”
And King Abdullah II of Jordan continued: “The founding king’s style was embodied in an attempt to unite peoples and reconcile them, which is what my father inherited from him, what I inherited from my father, and what my son inherits from me.”
Palestine and Jerusalem
In another context, King Abdullah II described the recent war with the Gaza Strip as “a wake-up call for everyone.”
He considered the talk about Israel’s strength and economic and technological progress “a very fragile front.”

King Abdullah II of Jordan’s statements came during his private interview with CNN announcer Fareed Zakaria, which will be broadcast at 6 pm Dubai time.
In response to a question about the extent of the Israeli occupation’s ability to keep the situation as it is without resolving the conflict with the Palestinians, while signing peace agreements with Arab countries, the king said: “I think this is a very fragile front,” noting that when wars occur There will be loss of life and tragedy on all sides.
He continued, “I think this last war with Gaza was different. Since 1948, this is the first time I have felt a civil war in Israel… I think the internal dynamics we saw inside Israeli towns and cities served as a wake-up call for all of us.”
He indicated that he met with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Defense Minister Benny Gantz, to confirm for the first time what Israeli press reports said about this meeting, which took place at the beginning of this month.
King Abdullah II of Jordan added, “I came out of those meetings very encouraged, and I think we have seen in the past two weeks, not only a better understanding between Israel and Jordan, but the voices coming from both Israel and Palestine that we need to move forward.”

Responding to Dore Gold, an influential advisor to Prime Minister Netanyahu, saying that “Jordan needs to start thinking of itself as a Palestinian state,” King Abdullah said, “Well, again, this kind of nonsense is not new… Jordan is Jordan. . We have a mixed community of different ethnic and religious backgrounds, but it is our country. The Palestinians do not want to be in Jordan. They want their land.
He continued, “This takes us to a very dangerous discourse. So, as I indicated, if we don’t talk about the two-state solution, are we talking again about the one-state solution? Will it be fair, transparent and democratic?”
He added, “I think the one-state solution is more challenging for those in Israel who pushed this theory than the two-state solution, and it is the only way.”
The court refuses to summon Prince Hamzah to testify in the “sedition” case
Three weeks ago, the State Security Court rejected the defense team’s request for the presence of Princes Hamza, Ali, Hashem and other witnesses to give their testimony in the sedition case, according to the lawyer of the accused, Basem Awadallah.
The defense lawyer in the “sedition” case in Jordan said at the time that the military court rejected the defense’s request to summon Prince Hamza bin Al Hussein, to testify in the case in which a former close associate of the royal family is accused of destabilizing the country.
In the name of Awad Allah
The lawyer of the former head of the Jordanian Royal Court, Basem Awadallah, the first defendant in the “sedition case,” announced that he would request the attendance of Prince Hamzah bin Al Hussein, the former crown prince, to testify in the fourth session of the Jordanian State Security Court.
In which the two accused, Awadallah and Sharif Hassan bin Zaid, a friend of Prince Hamzah and a member of the royal family who are not involved, are being tried.
Lawyer Muhammad Afif said that the defense list includes the names of 25 witnesses, including former ministers and supervisors, in addition to a number of princes, led by Prince Hamzah bin Al Hussein.
He added that they also include Prime Minister Bishr Al-Khasawneh, two princes, a minister and a number of members of the royal family.
The State Security Court holds the case’s sessions “in secret”, and only defense attorneys are allowed to attend, amid a state of anticipation in popular circles for the developments of the case, in which charges have been leveled with undermining the security and stability of the country and undermining the political regime of Awadallah and Bin Zaid.
The charges against the defendants, Basem Awadallah and Sharif Hassan Zaid, include inciting to undermine the political system of the Kingdom and committing acts that threaten public security and spread sedition, both of which pleaded their innocence. Both charges carry a sentence of 30 years in prison.
