No country in the region appears to have tried to fan the flames of the controversy or take advantage of it.
According to analysts, former diplomats and security personnel, Jordan’s stability should always be an Israeli concern.
Jordanian officials passed a message to Israel that the situation was under control and there was no threat to the kingdom’s stability, but nonetheless, Israel cannot afford to ignore the events.
"No one expected the controversy to escalate to a point where the king would order the army and the mukhabarat to raid Prince Hamzah’s palace and place him under house arrest."
"The investigations had monitored interferences and communications with foreign parties over the right timing to destabilize Jordan," Safadi said.
Jordanian King Abdullah's half-brother & former Crown Prince Hamza bin Hussein was told to halt actions used to target the country's "security and stability," the military said on Saturday.
Arrests of top officials and royal family members are rare in Jordan.
Jordan reported 9,417 new coronavirus infections in the past 24 hours, officials said on Monday, its highest one-day tally since the pandemic began.
Bonus chutzpah is that for 19 years, Jordan totally controlled the Temple Mount and banned Jews from getting anywhere close.
All of this contact between the Israeli center-left and Jordan is in the context of King Abdullah refusing to speak with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
