Amman, Jordan. His Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan (often portrayed as a pro-Western leader) said, among other things, that the Muslim Brotherhood is a "Masonic cult". Jordanian State television expressed the official position of the Royal House by denying it and said that the statements of the King were taken out of context.
The Muslim Brotherhood (The Society of the Muslim Brothers) controls the most powerful political organization in Jordan. The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in Egypt in 1928 and today represents one of the greatest political and social forces in the Arab countries, starting with Egypt.
