Dr. Asaad Ghali Hamzah

Abstract:

Every political system has characteristics that are distinct from other political systems, Even if similar in content. This distinction comes through the society and the intellectual mosaic that it forms, and the Jordanian political system has a distinguishing feature from other political systems (constitutional monarchy). These characteristics emerged after the appearance of the so-called Arab Spring. Despite the mob that took place between the Muslim Brotherhood and the regime in the kingdom, despite the mobs that occurred in Arab countries such as Syria, Libya and now in Yemen, the Muslim Brotherhood was not exposed to the regime despite the existence of a state of escalation between the two parties in the recent period certainly do not exclude in our research this external support received by the Kingdom from the great powers such as America and Britain, but there are old relationships  between the Brotherhood and the regime had a significant on the stability of the political system. Hence the importance of the research to identify the nature of the relationship between the Jordanian political system and the Muslim Brotherhood, to identify the reality, determining  the success of the relationship and learn the causes of the crisis of the relationship occasionally , trying to specify the parties responsible for that success or failure, is the Brotherhood, or the Jordanian regime, and its impact on the Kingdom of Jordan and the democracy it has pursued since the beginning of the establishment.Every political system has characteristics that are distinct from other political systems, Even if similar in content.
