The ousting of President Mohammed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt has raised concerns the Islamists may try to export their crisis to the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, one of the first Arab countries to voice support for the coup that toppled the Morsi regime.
US (Rep) Senator Lindsey Graham told a congressional hearing recently that King Abdullah of Jordan had told him "he did not think he was going to be in power in a year from now."
Mudar Zahran has been described as a Palestinian leader in Jordan. He is a writer and an activist who believes the situation in Jordan is far from calm and change in Jordan is likely.
Zahran is visiting Israel where he will be discussing with officials how strengthening Jordan's secular opposition can prevent an Islamist takeover of Jordan.
