"Jordan's King Abdullah on Tuesday said his kingdom was Israel's last ally in the region and warned that Egypt may dissolve its peace treaty with Tel Aviv. "We are actually the last man [i.e. clown] standing with our relationship with Israel," the king told The Washington Post, pointing to Israel's troubled relations with Turkey and Egypt." Let me translate this interview into English: Look. I am falling and I can't get up. My wife and I did not feel we could attend Davos (so Davos came to Jordan instead because they know how much we love Davos). And I need US financial and military support real bad. I screwed up, big time.
