Divine-right monarchies are helpless before God

Jordan is an Islamic country. It goes further than that: its political structure is monarchic.

Any king rules because the commonly-accepted God has set the king upon the throne. The sovereign who rules otherwise is not a king; such a ruler would be classed as a strongman, Sumerian lugal.

Since the people of Jordan mostly profess Islam for their religion, the king must rely upon Islam to stay on as king. And if the people demand more Islam, the king must grant it.
