Brotherhood sources confirm that the kingdom’s largest opposition group is trying to resolve internal divisions - which have been traditionally hidden or downplayed - regarding important policies such as Jordan’s reform process, its relationships with other opposition groups in the country, and links with Hamas.
Hawks and doves
The Brotherhood’s dovish camp opposes organizational ties with the Palestinian Islamist movement for the same reason that its hawks support it: to thwart alleged designs to make Jordan an alternative homeland for the Palestinians.
The doves emphasize the movement’s identity within Jordan, whereas the hawks see it as an inseparable part of the international Brotherhood whose agendas are determined externally. Visits to Islamist-ruled Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco by the politburo chief of the Jordanian Brotherhood’s political arm - the Islamic Action Front - have decreased its domestic popularity among those suspicious of foreign influence.
