Iran has its eyes on Jordan, the need to destabilize in order to increase it’s hegemony is rather apparent.
As a colleague states:
“Sooner or later Jordan will become an active, guerilla/terrorist battlefield between loose Sunni coalitions and Iran. That’s what Iraq, Syria, and Yemen are today.”

Jordan is an oasis of stability, wrote Jerusalem Post analyst Yossi Melman in Tuesday’s paper.
Based on the capabilities of the Jordanian army and the intelligence services of the Hashemite Kingdom, his analysis came a day after a terrorist killed five members of the General Intelligence Department in the country.
The five were shot down in the GID’s office in the Palestinian refugee camp of Baqaa at 7:00 A.M. on Monday.
The Jordanian security services later arrested a suspect who they said had carried out the attack. Mohammad Momani, a spokesman for the Minister for Media Affairs said that “preliminary information indicates that the attack was a lone-wolf incident and that investigations were still ongoing.” Jordanian media reported that the alleged perpetrator of the terrorist attack was apprehended in a mosque in the capital of Amman.
The attack on the GID office drew condemnations from Arab countries and British Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs Philip Hammond, signaling concerns that the Arab Kingdom could be the next country that will be destabilized by Islamist terror groups.
Jordan has been relatively quiet until now, but Melman’s assessment that the country is “an oasis of stability” holds only when one compares the country to Syria and Iraq.
