Arab world 's unrest puts pressure on Jordan king

I think we can say that the economic downturn causing millions of jobless and homeless people around the world……while the gov’t WEALTHY ELITE CROOKS continue their lavish lifestyles unabated is the root cause……or the last straw.
 
An over throw of the wealthy careless elite crooks around the world would be a good thing.  But in the middle-east,….I’m not so sure.  It’s a powder keg over there, and has been for over 50 years.  If fundamentalist muslims grab power when its lying in the streets, it will mean more wars with Israel……possibly dragging the whole world into it (WW3), due to the “oil issue”. 

In any case, Israel has to be very nervous about these events.  Israel has had a peace treaty with Egypt for 30+ years.  That peace treaty was the reason Sadat was assassinated 30 years ago, and Hosni Mubarak installed and he surprisingly maintained the peace with Israel.  Now the future of Egypt and this peace treaty are up in the air.
 
Power corrupts......and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
