Alta tensione tra Giordania e Hamas

Hamas was an ally when Jordan sought to compete with Arafat. The
times, however, have changed. Seeking domestic stability and long-term
survival, King Abdullah sees Hamas as an adversary especially if its
hard-line polices were to radicalize the region further and start
another cycle of violence. Any sympathy for Hamas in Jordan,
especially among the Palestinian segment of the population, is a sure
recipe for trouble. This, perhaps, explains the ongoing tension
between Jordan and Hamas over the uncovered arms cache. The Hashemite
Jordanian apprehensions over Hamas and its negative influences within
Jordan are real and cannot be dismissed easily.
