Jordanian king warns of "massive conflict" if Israel annexes parts of West Bank


King Abdullah II of Jordan said in an interview with the German magazine Der Spiegel that Israeli annexation of parts of the West Bank “will lead to a massive conflict with Jordan."


Why it matters: This is the harshest statement by the King regarding possible annexation of parts of the West Bank by Israel. It comes days after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Israel for talks with Israeli leaders and ahead of the swearing in of the new Israeli government on Sunday.


What he’s saying: When asked if Jordan would suspend its peace treaty with Israel if the annexation takes place, King Abdullah said: “I don't want to make threats and create an atmosphere of loggerheads, but we are considering all options."

Admitting I forgot about Libya, is it safe to say that removing a dictator by itself isn't good enough to prevent another one coming right after them? That establishing and maintaining democracy is actually really f'n hard and not to take for granted?
