You Hashemites all look the same

US House Republican hawk Dana Rohrabacher writes in the Wall Street Journal, in what's mostly a love-letter to General/President Sisi of Egypt --

Better to look to the embattled region itself—to Jordan’s King Hussein, to Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, to the leaders of formative Kurdistan, to the crown prince of Abu Dhabi, Mohammad bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and to Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi. 

Elsewhere in the article, he refers to Ronald Reagan. He's stuck in those years in his knowledge of Jordan too. King Hussein died in 1999. His son, Abdullah, is the current King of Jordan.
