I love it how veteran American journalists are now re-discovering #Jordan after a decades-long absence and writing as if it is still 1980, 1991 or 1999.

It highlights a deep lack of understanding of how the #Jordan has evolved under the reign of King Abdullah.

No, East Bank tribes are no longer a monolith and neither are its leaders. A new political-economic elite have risen. Even balance of power in old institutions has shifted
People seem to also missing the point that the #Jordan opposition has been politically decimated or coopted.

There are no real political actors on the ground. Even social actors such as tribes have been divided (many say, on purpose by the state).

“I don’t want to go into details,” #Netanyahu said.

Although the direct flight between #Israel and #AbuDhabi was opened across #Saudi airspace, Netanyahu ultimately decided to fly by helicopter from Ben Gurion Airport to the #Jordanian capital of #Amman, and from there by

If you’ve ever visited #Amman, you’ve definitely caught a glimpse of the colossal Temple of ‘Hercules’ standing tall on ancient acropolis. The architecture is amazing, but who was the temple actually for & was it ever finished?

The Amman citadel is an amazing site & I hope this thread inspires some visits! Occupied since the Neolithic period, the citadel is marked in some way by every phase of Jordan’s history.

It’s also home to an amazing archaeological museum, featuring an even wider range of finds!
The temple sits a conventional Roman podium on the southern end of the fortified citadel, and would have measured 30x24m. The most impressive aspect of the building is its vertical scale: each of its columns rises some 10m atop the stylobate, making it incredibly imposing!

I have read the entire #Israel-#Palestinian peace plan and my advice to revelers is not to pop the champagne anytime soon -- "peace" is not around the corner. Here's a quick assessment. 1/11
I congratulate the plan's authors for injecting some realism into conventional views of this conflict. It is realistic for the Jordan River to be Israel's security barrier. It is realistic for hundreds of thousands of Israelis in West Bank not to be forced to relocate. 2/11
But they took those & other principles and stretched them beyond all recognition. #Israeli security control of #JordanValley became full sovereignty; not uprooting hundreds of thousands of settlers became not uprooting even 1 settler. There are no Solomonic judgments here. 3/11

The media is *the* platform of choice for US officials trying to coerce a reversal in #Syria policy -- the reality is more complex & less promising.

My latest for @politico, questions durability of #America's presence in #Syria vis-a-vis #ISIS's future:

politico.com/magazine/story…
@politico (1) A long-term U.S. presence in al-Tanf depends heavily on #Jordan's support.

But the reliability of that support remains uncertain, given #Amman's doubling investment in ties with #Assad's #Syria & pursuit of renewed trade links.

Have we got that assurance? I don't think so.
@politico (2) For now, #Trump has permitted a "residual force" in #Syria on the condition that it convinces EU allies to (a) stay & (b) expand their presence.

As of today, (a) is possible but (b) is an outright No.

That means the status quo, which we know #Trump opposes altogether.

#Russia, #Israel, #US & #Jirdan eventually negotiated departure of 422 #WhiteHelmets & their families out of #Syria (initial number was reportedly 827).#Canada, #Germany, #UK also involved in talks, each agreed to host them. Some 3750 activists remain in SYR.
#Moscow reportedly didnt allow direct passage of #WhiteHelmets to #Jordan (hence evacuation thru #Israel)while #Amman agreed to temporarily accept 'em only after guarantees frm West states they'd host them.#Canada to host 250 (activists+families),#Germany -8 activists +?families
In #Moscow, #WhiteHelmets evacuation said to be a part of #HelsinkiSummit agreements on #Syria, #GolanHeights. The very operation was thoroughly coordinated by #Israel's Lieberman & #Russia's Shoigu as well as discussed by #Putin & @netanyahu in latest phone call.

The battle of south Syria will be divide in two parts: the first part (Suweida/east Daraa) will continue without obstacles from players involved (#USA and #Israel).
The 2d part is still observing complications (the one including #ISIS - Jaish Khaled Bin al-Waleed) in #Quneitra.
The first part (Suweida/east Daraa) is aiming to open the #Damascus-#Amman road at Naseeb crossing. This will give a fresh air to the economy of both #Syria and #Jordan. The battle is expected to end in less than 2 months.

For the second part on the Israeli borders, #USA said it clearly is shall not pull out of al-Tanf today, tomorrow or in the near future.
The Israeli bombing last night close to #Damascus airport is due to the second part of the ops in south #Syria.
