Muslim Brotherhood challenges Jordan’s king

“As it prepares for a large-scale demonstration on July 15, Jordan’s Muslim Brotherhood has stepped up its criticism of King Abdullah II’s monarchy, going so far as to risk breaking the law by questioning its legitimacy.

“Any authority that does not rely on the people does not represent it nor does it express its interests,” declared the Islamic Action Front (IAF), the Brotherhood’s political wing, in a press statement issued Tuesday. Since March, the Brotherhood has vociferously criticized the government’s snail-pace political reforms, organizing weekly demonstrations throughout the kingdom.”
