"The Israelis provided him with money and, what was more important, we helped him organize his security services and we also provided him with important information about his enemies at home." This same story repeats itself over and over. King Abdulla of Jordan, and later his son king Hussein, did everything possible to remain on their throans. Such kings, and similar current day dictators in Libya, Egypt, Yemen, Saudia Arabia, etc, owe their existence to outside powers who provide them with protection from their own people. The scene of Qaddafi, a dictator by any name, in France, the mother of democracy, goes to show that what the West really cares about is money and more money and zero about democracy and fair elections. Sad but true!
