King Abdullah has been siphoning off $33 billion a year for 26 years from the Jordan Budget


Ali Baba Jordan’s wealth exceeds one trillion (1000 billion) dollars… With evidence from international sources and the confessions of the regime itself: The annual income of the Jordanian government is 46 billion, and the government budget is only 13 billion. The difference is 33 billion dollars that go to Alibaba balances every year… 23 inauspicious years ago… See the full study below: How much is the wealth of the King of Jordan? part One While the Jordanians sighed with pain and choked with poverty in their throats, we conducted this study that shows the scale of the legendary crime of plunder committed by Ali Baba II (a former comer known technically as the King of Jordan), whose wealth swelled to numbers that simulate the great oil sheikhs, while our great people sleep worryingly. To receive them after that day.

Note that we have published this study on social media, and it was circulated by some members of the Jordanian Parliament, who quickly fell silent with the first call from the Royal Palace Intelligence Office. Below is the full study documented with international and Arab numbers and references, including references to the system itself, stressing that we have calculated the “minimum” in all items, which means that Alibaba’s real wealth is much greater. Summary of numbers: Potash: $621 million annually Phosphates: $230 million annually Profits from oil and fuel sales: $2.79 billion annually Customs revenues: $10.6 billion annually Electricity distribution profits: 1.82 billion dollars annually Sales tax: $3 billion annually Income tax on employee salaries: $1 billion annually Social Security: $600 million annually after all pensions are paid Public shareholding companies tax: $988 million annually Department of Lands and Survey: $750 million annually Biography Circle: $440 million annually International and Arab aid: $2.5 billion annually, at a minimum The income of the official Jordanian universities: 845.25 million dollars annually Gas sales profits: 12.6 billion dollars annually Greater Amman Municipality and Municipalities: $3.1 billion annually, at a minimum Ministry of Labor: Work permits for expatriate workers: $2,000 million annually, at a minimum Revenues from selling water: 725 million dollars annually, after paying all costs: Aqaba Port: $360 million annually for ship services only Tourism revenues and taxes: 1.2 billion annually Annual loan from banks: $2 billion, according to the official government budget America’s grant for army expenses: 4,000 million annually to pay salaries and equipment: Total: $46.76 billion annually All expenditures of the entire government, including the military: $8.5 billion annually, The difference: $38.16 billion 38.16 billion annually in 16 years of rule = $610 billion at the minimum The Stolen Wealth of Jordanians: Potash: $621 million annually Jordan is the third largest exporter of potash in the world. The volume of Jordan’s production of potash amounted to 1.8 million tons in 2005, (1) noting that the system did not provide any clear reports on the current amount of production. The price of a ton of potash was about $345 in 2014, and it had reached $450 a ton before that. (2) If we calculate the minimum price of potash, which is 3455, then Jordan’s annual income from potash is 345 x 1.8 million tons = 621 million dollars annually. 1- 2-…/meta

Phosphates: $230 million annually Jordan’s average production of phosphates in 2003 was about 22 million tons annually. (1) Noting that the amount of production has been greatly expanded as a result of the development of mining technology, which means that the actual production amount exceeds that figure. Between 1999 and 2008, The international price of a ton of phosphate was about $1,200, which means that the Jordanian state’s income from phosphate during that period amounted to 2 million tons x 1200 = $2.4 billion annually for nine consecutive years!! Since 2009, the price of a ton of phosphate has declined to only $3,000 per ton, and then it collapsed to its current price at about $115 per ton. (2) Despite this, Jordan’s average income from phosphate remained: 115 times 2 million tons, which is $230 million annually. at least 1- 2-…/82939…/P Customs: $10.6 billion annually: The Hashemite regime has imposed exorbitant customs on Jordanians for decades on the vast majority of goods in a country that imports most of what it consumes. Thus, Ali Baba II, and before him Hussein Ibn Zain, shared with the Jordanians their livelihood, and even the diapers of their children!!! According to the annual CIA report on Jordan, the Jordanian economy imported $18.4 billion in imports in 2012. If we exclude around $2 billion annually from oil and gas from these imports (which we will detail in another item), the net imports are $16.4 billion. annually. The system imposes customs duties on most of the consumed goods, excluding a limited number of goods, such as some medical products, for example. Otherwise, the customs rate on various materials ranges between 30% on most basic commodities, including food, and reaches 200% on luxury goods such as luxury cars, and even cars. The system imposes a customs tariff on them of up to 100 percent of their value. Thus, if we calculate the average customs rate in Jordan between 30 percent and 100 percent, the rate will be 65 percent… So, the system gets at least 65 percent of the $16.44 billion in annual imports = $10.666 billion annually. Profits from oil and fuel sales: $2.79 billion annually: The average daily oil consumption for Jordan is about 1533 thousand barrels per day (1) The average global price of a barrel of oil was about $110 until 2013, and a barrel of oil contains 158 liters of crude oil, which results in 19 gallons of gasoline and 12 gallons Of diesel: (2) That is, each barrel produces about 71 liters of gasoline, which the regime used to sell to Jordanians at a higher price than the global market, even though it obtained Iraqi oil at reduced prices since 2007 and at a symbolic price not exceeding $60 per barrel, which means that the regime He has made fantastic profits of $50 multiplied by 153,000 liters per day, or $7,650,000 per day, with a net income of $2.79 billion annually. Likewise, CNNN confirmed in a report that the regime buys oil from ISIS (3), at low prices that do not exceed forty dollars a barrel, which means that the regime is still making huge profits from selling oil to Jordanians at high prices. 1- 2- 3-

Electricity distribution profits: 1.82 billion dollars annually: The World Bank indicates that the average per capita consumption of electricity in Jordan is 2280 kilowatt-hours annually, (1) and the estimated population of Jordan now with citizens and refugees is more than eight million people, and some estimates reach ten million. The same is the case, the price of a kilowatt-hour in the United States ranges around 12 cents, while its lowest price in Jordan for the average level of consumption is 114 fils, or about 18 US cents, a difference of 6 cents above the US price (2) although the employees of electricity companies in the United States And the management cost of power stations is five times higher—comparing average salaries between Jordan and the United States — which means that government companies make huge profits that may reach 10 cents per kilowatt, and so the average government income from selling electricity to citizens at these high prices is 10 Cents x 2280 kilowatt-hours per person x 8 million people = 1.82 billion dollars annually. 1- 2-

Sales tax: $3 billion annually: The CIA book of facts about Jordan confirms that the purchasing power in Jordan is 40 billion dollars until the year 2012, (1) and of course this number has doubled over the past two years. The system imposes a cumulative sales tax on most of the traded goods, from its arrival to major importers to groceries. The small one that sells chewing gum. If we calculate that this tax includes only half of what is sold and bought in Jordan, 20 billion dollars at 16 percent is the percentage of sales tax, then the production exceeds 3 billion dollars annually. 1-…/the-world-

The second part Summary of figures: Total state net income: $46.76 billion annually All expenditures of the entire government, including the military: $8.5 billion annually, The difference: $38.16 billion 38.16 billion annually in 16 years of rule = $610 billion at the minimum Below are the rest of the details of the Hashemite era’s crime against the Jordanians: Income tax on employee salaries: $1 billion annually The Income Tax Department deducts five percent of employees’ salaries, and the system has not yet announced the total amount deducted. If we calculate what the social security reaps, which is 979 million dinars annually (1) from the contributions of the employees covered by the insurance, then we will be able to calculate the percentage of what the employees pay from their salaries (5.5 percent) and the employers pay nine percent of the salaries of their employees (2). The percent that they pay is 336.5 million dinars annually out of 979 million, if not 11%. The income tax that employees pay exceeds 673 million dinars, which is more than a billion dollars annually!…/Contributi

Social Security: $600 million annually after all pensions are paid In the month of September 20133, Rania Al-Rawbdeh, the daughter of the godfather of corruption Abdul Raouf Al-Rawabdeh, reported that the insurance revenues of the Social Security Corporation amounted to (979) million dinars annually, while the total expenditures of the institution are only 55 million dinars per month, (1) meaning that the total expenditure The annual is 660 million dinars, with a surplus of about 320 million dinars ($480 billion) for the institution. Noting that the Social Security Corporation has assets and investments that generate unknown income, which has not been definitively published yet, just as no one knows what is the way in which the corporation’s investments are managed, and despite that, the Central Bank recognizes assets estimated at 516 billion dinars for the year 2003. (Of course, the number has doubled in the past years. If the total assets were only one billion dollars, then the average return on investment on this huge amount would not be less than one hundred million dollars annually, meaning that the total income of the institution, of which the Jordanian people did not see much, is not less than 600 million. 1 dollar annually after paying all the salaries of retirees.1-

Public shareholding companies tax: $988 million annually The tax rate imposed by the system on joint-stock companies ranges between 25% of their income and rises to 35% on banks. This percentage is considered very high due to the fact that Jordan adopts the collection and customs system. Very few countries combine high taxes with high customs. Banks contribute about 43% of the total income tax paid to the system by joint stock companies (1), and the figures of the Jordanian General Statistics Department indicate that the percentage of the banking sector’s contribution to the GDP has reached 4.26% . ) , noting that Jordan’s GDP is about 40 billion dollars annually) meaning that the banking sector adds enormous economic value to the Jordanian economy that exceeds one billion seven hundred million dollars annually, this huge number, if the government collects the minimum tax of 25 percent, the output will be: 425 million dollars annually, and that is from the banking sector only . While this number constitutes only 433% of the total taxes collected by the regime on joint-stock companies, meaning that the full amount, the 100%, is more than $988 million annually. 1-

(1) Al-Zoubi even added that the department lost ten million dinars as a result of the department stopping work for five days due to the employees’ strike. Thus, the department’s income will be 3 million dollars (2 million dinars) x 2500 working days per year = 750 million dollars annually, noting that the government’s recognition of 3 million dollars per day comes at a time of stagnation in the Jordanian and global real estate market. 1-

Biography Circle: $440 million annually Until the year 2014, there were 1,230,000 vehicles registered in the Traffic Department (1) in Jordan, bearing in mind that the government collects 200 dinars as a registration tax on a vehicle whose total weight does not exceed two and a half tons, and then 200 dinars annually for re-registration, and other vehicles are also collected. Much larger sums. Even if we adhered to the minimum, which is 200 dinars, and multiplied it by one million and 230 thousand vehicles, the total number would exceed 264 million dinars, or about 400 million dollars annually, just as it is known that there is no vehicle in Jordan that is not subject to a traffic violation annually from the pure taxation section, and many Of the vehicles, especially public vehicles, incur several violations for one vehicle. If we calculate the minimum of one million and 230 thousand vehicles registered in Jordan, with one violation per vehicle per year, and with a minimum amount of only 20 dinars per vehicle, then the total violations amount to 26 million dinars annually, at a rate of 40 million dollars, at a minimum. 1-

International and Arab aid: $2.5 billion annually, at a minimum: It has become known that Ali Baba II does not announce the real amount of Arab aid that reaches the regime, and that it fluctuates according to the political situation. confidential request. Likewise, the Jordanians did not forget the story of the one and a half billion dollars that Saudi Arabia provided in support of Jordan in 2011, which went to the balance of Alibaba instead of preserving it with the central bank, which led to the resignation of the governor of the central bank, the son of Abdul Hamid Sharaf, in protest. However, it is fair to say that the volume of Arab aid is not less than one and a half billion dollars annually, mostly from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and recently Qatar. Of course, this aid does not appear to have any impact on the lives of Jordanians. Likewise, Western countries provide massive cash assistance to Jordan, including, for example, the United States providing one billion dollars in cash to the Jordanian government from 2009 to 2014, which was recently raised to 1.350 billion (of which 400 million goes to support the Jordanian army). Likewise, the European Union and Japan provide varying amounts exceeding 400 million dollars annually, and Britain, Australia and Canada provide additional amounts amounting to tens of millions of dollars annually, for each country, noting that this study will suffice with the minimum sum of all of the above. Which is 2.5 billion dollars annually. The income of the official Jordanian universities: 845.25 million dollars annually Until the year 2010, the number of students in Jordanian universities was 243,251 students, each of whom constituted an extended source of income for the system. To begin with, the number of foreign students in public universities only amounted to 15,243 students, with an average annual student spending of 10,000 dinars, with a total of 152,430,000 (1) This is an amount that exceeds $220 million annually, in addition to the fact that Jordanian students, as indicated by the students’ website, Zabhtouna, indicate that 70% of students in public universities are parallel students who pay huge tuitions of up to 5,000 dinars (7,000) dollars annually for each of them. (2) And since the study adheres to the principle of the minimum in all numbers, if we assume that half of the number of Jordanian university students are in public universities — the real percentage is much more than that because most and largest Jordanian universities are public universities and not private — , so they are 121 thousand students 70 percent of them are parallel students, i.e. 12100 in 70 percent in 5000 dinars annually = 423.5 million dinars annually, or 625.25 million dollars annually, plus 220 million dollars from foreign students. That is, the total number is $845.25 million, without taking into account the high tuition paid by students who study in regular installments, and we considered them studying for free!! 1-

Gas sales profits: 12.6 billion dollars annually The CIA World Factbook states that Jordan consumes about 1.4 billion cubic meters of gas annually. Jordan gets gas to this day from Egypt, and despite the repeated bombings of the gas pipeline between Egypt and Jordan, the gas is still flowing, at preferential prices of less than $5 per cubic meter, (1) while the regime sells a cubic meter for $15, with the cost of transporting it Its packaging is very low because of its transportation by pipes, meaning that the system earns an amount of no less than $9 per cubic meter, meaning that the annual total is $9 x 1.4 billion cubic meters: $12.6 billion annually, noting that the price of a cubic meter of gas in Britain, for example, does not exceed 50 cents.

Greater Amman Municipality and municipalities: $3.1 billion annually, at a minimum According to its announced figures, the Municipality of Amman, the value of the buildings and land ‘roofed’ tax collected in the capital, Amman, for the year 2014, amounted to about 26 million dinars, (1) while evidence on the ground indicates that the real figure is many times greater than this alleged figure. The Municipality of Amman collects a tax on buildings amounting to eight percent, which has been raised from six percent for the past years (2) and the number of buildings established in Jordan each year averages 30,000 buildings (3), while no building or apartment in Jordan is decreasing in price For 100,000 dinars – if we adhered to calculating the minimum, i.e. 100,000 dinars multiplied by 30,000 buildings multiplied by six percent of the tax value, the result would have been 180 million dinars, or 270 million dollars. Likewise, the Greater Amman Municipality and all municipalities of Jordan collect high sums from citizens As a building permit, and the average annual building permits amount to 25 thousand permits, (4) noting that the value of the license reaches a minimum of 500 dollars, or 12.5 million dinars, or about 18.7 million dollars. The Municipality of Amman also imposes a “development tax” on every new building ranging from Between 15,000 dinars and jumps to 50,000 according to the location, and if we calculate only the minimum, which is 15,000 dinars multiplied by 25,000 permits annually, the total income of the system from building permits will be 375 million dinars, or about 562 million dollars annually. The Greater Amman Municipality also collects a tax on rented apartments and buildings that amounts to ten percent cumulatively, including all detailed taxes, including services that are not provided by the Greater Amman Municipality or the Jordanian municipalities in the first place. 

That half of Jordanians live in rented houses, and given that the population is ten million, they live in two million houses, half of which are rented, i.e. one million houses for which the government collects ten percent of the rent, and given that the average rent in Jordan is $500, i.e. one million times 500 times ten percent = 50 million dollars. The Greater Amman Municipality also collects licensing fees at an average of 500 dollars per commercial store, and there are about 300,000 commercial stores in Jordan, or 150 million dollars annually. Municipalities also collect various taxes in excess of $500 annually for each dwelling, and up to $3,000 for large dwellings, and that number is multiplied by 2 million dwellings, with a minimum of $500, or two billion dollars annually. Also, the Greater Amman Municipality has its own investment fund of no less than 4,000 million dinars, or 600 million dollars, even if the investment return on it is only ten percent annually, then the output is 60 million dollars. Thus, the estimated minimum income for the Greater Amman Municipality and the municipalities is $3.1 billion annually. 1- 2- 3-
