Ousted Israel PM plotted with Saudi's MBS to undermine Jordan king

New details have emerged about the alleged plot to overthrow Jordan's King Abdullah, indicating that former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu played a starring role along with senior officials within the Trump administration, prominent Jordanians, and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.

Details of the role played by Netanyahu, who was ousted yesterday after the Israeli parliament voted in a new coalition government led by the far-right nationalist Naftali Bennett, was reported in a Washington Post article by David Ignatius titled "Inside the palace intrigue in Jordan and a thwarted 'deal of the century'".

Ignatius shed light on one of the biggest stories of April when Jordan's former crown prince Hamzah Bin Hussein was accused of plotting to oust King Abdullah II. The alleged plot is said to have been backed by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, also known as MBS.

Ignatius's account is based on a Jordanian investigative report on the case as well as discussions with current and former officials with knowledge of former US President Donald Trump's Middle East policy. King Abdullah's objection to the so-called "deal of the century" is said to have been the reason for the plot to undermine him. The success of the plan required a new arrangement for occupied East Jerusalem that would seek to displace Jordanian or Hashemite custodianship of Al-Aqsa Mosque.
