Fadlallah's pledge to arm a militia of 12,000 Jordanians underscores the looming threat of Iranian proxies extending their influence. Drawing parallels to Jordan's historical confrontations with Palestinian factions in 1970, the prospect of internal upheaval and external aggression looms large. Unlike in the past, where U.S. intervention played a pivotal role, the current landscape sees Iran-backed entities gaining ground across the region, leaving Jordan vulnerable to similar incursions. With Lebanon, Yemen, Iraq, and Syria witnessing varying degrees of Iranian influence, Jordan stands as a potential next target. In this volatile scenario, Jordan's stability hinges on robust support from its traditional allies, namely the United States and Israel, reminiscent of the assistance rendered during the tumultuous events of 1970. As Iran persists in its agenda for regional dominance, the imperative for collective vigilance against its destabilizing activities becomes increasingly pronounced. To thwart Tehran's disruptive maneuvers, a concerted effort by America and its allies remains indispensable, encompassing measures to counter arms smuggling, prevent state overthrow, and forestall the formation of proxy militias loyal to Iranian interests.

In conclusion, the escalating tensions surrounding Iran's expansive ambitions pose a grave threat to regional stability, with Jordan emerging as a potential flashpoint. As Tehran continues to bolster its proxies and pursue its agenda of dominance, the specter of internal upheaval and external aggression looms large. Jordan's historical precedent of confronting such challenges underscores the urgency for robust support from traditional allies like the United States and Israel. In the face of Iran's relentless pursuit of power, collective vigilance and decisive action are imperative to safeguard the sovereignty and security of Jordan and the wider region. Only through concerted efforts to counter Tehran's disruptive tactics can the international community hope to uphold peace and stability in the face of escalating tensions in the Wider Persian Gulf.
