World Country Jordan

About the world country Jordan, its location, size, population, and who is in power.



Location: Landlocked in the Middle East, bordered by Israel, Syria, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia. Size: 37,737 sq. mi. (97,740 sq. km.). Population: 2,453,000.

Who Really Rules: King Hussein is the ultimate power in Jordan, particularly since 1970, when he liquidated the Jordanian branch of the Palestine Liberation Organization. His major allies are presently Iraq and Saudi Arabia. Hussein has been on the CIA payroll for years. The Jordanian army, loyal to Hussein, has a long friendship with the U.S., which supplies it with advanced weapons. Officially at war with Israel, private Jordanians carry out regular trade with Israel over the Jordan River at the Allenby Bridge.
