To say that Abdullah ibn Al-Hussein comes from a prestigious family would be one heck of an understatement. The current ruler of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Abdullah II comes from the house of Hashem that claims its descendency from Mohammed himself. His ancestors have sat on the thrones of Transjordan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and parts of Saudi Arabia. The bottom line is that, whatever "it" is, Abdullah has people to do it for him.

Yet when unprecedented amounts of snow fell on the Middle East these past few days, Abdullah apparently didn't hesitate to roll up the sleeves of his thawb and help push at least this one car out of the snow. Our guess is that his motorcade couldn't pass a bottomed-out car on the street, so when members of his entourage jumped out to help, so did he.

In any event, the video below is reportedly spreading like snow-melting wildfire across the Middle East. As well it should. After all, how many kings are there left in the world, and how often do you see one pushing a car out of the snow?

      I'm not saying that he isn't the type of guy that wouldn't do this, but I suspect this was a staged PR stunt. World leaders are heavily guarded. They just don't step out into the open like this. If I'm wrong, though, and he really did do this on a whim, then hat's off all the more.

      P.R. stunt or not, there's zero chance any of our Presidents would have done the same. Zero.

        Jimmy Carter would have. He wasn't a great president, but he's a pretty cool guy.

          I agree - a self reliant guy. Hard to fault a guy for carrying his own bags onto Airforce One.

          Well, when he was younger. I think 80 year olds like him and Bush senior get a pass.

      Wow, more liberal media bias. I feel as if American liberalism's ultimate goal is to force us to live under sharia law. This guy can pretend to be a saint all he wants, but he fact that he stones women and followers of Christ shows that he is the lowest of scum, and just like all of those who have the audacity not to accept Jesus as their savior, he will not be permitted entry into the Kingdom of Heaven.

        What a sadly ignorant comment. Fortunately, it can be viewed in that respect and NOT an example of what most conservatives and Christians actually think. You might actually want to LEARN a little about Jordan, and it's political and social institutions. Jordan does NOT practice Sharia law, and they do NOT stone women or Christians. Your claims that "liberals" goal is to make the US an Islamic country ruled by Sharia law is the height of stupidity. Your claims that the entire world should abandon their intellectual and spiritual individuality to "accept Jesus as their savior" is arrogant, and not at all Christian. What a small-minded, ignorant and paranoid person you must be to believe such utter nonsense.

        And I think conservatives ultimate goal is to get us to live back under Jim Crow laws. The fact that you feel that all Christians are saints shows your wealth of ignorance. Here's some facts for you. Did you know Hitler wouldn't have been able to go as far as he did without the backing of the Catholic church? Did you know that the African Slave Trade and the near genocide of Native Americans was acceptable because the church said that since they weren't followers of Christ they could be treated like animals and executed at will? Did you know the bloodiest wars in history were mostly caused by Christians? Look at how up how the priests during the Hutu and Tutsi war would mislead people into seeking refuge inside of their churches only to lock them inside and burn it to the ground. The acts of violence, oppression, gentrification, racism, terror, hypocrisy, and much more has by Muslims will never come close to what so called followers of Christ have done. And this is coming from a Christian.

        My dear friend I would like to teach you that all Muslims believe in Jesus Christ as the savior and await his return to defeat the antichrist. Actually if you don't believe in Jesus and the gospel or Moses, David, Solomon or any other prophet and the scriptures that were revealed to them you are not considered a Muslim. And Muslims value all the prophets with the same level of respect. Also Muslims can't offend Christians or Jews except if they have a valuable reason (stealing of property, endangerment of one's physical integrity or life) as it is a great sin to unfairly harm anybody. Muslims also are not antisemitic as many people think since they are also Semites themselves. It would be seriously stupid to hate your own People. I hope this information will help you learn more about Muslims and I am sorry if your feelings towards Muslims are motivated by some harm that a Muslim has done to you or by the bad representation of Muslims that we see on a daily basis on TV. Actually etymologically Islam comes from Salam in Arabic, which means peace. There are hundreds of millions of Muslims on this earth that are truly peaceful, don't be fooled by the very few violent ones you see on TV. I wish you a great rest of the day.

      This is a PR stunt, just like his marriage. He had to marry a Palestinian woman just to stay in power because in total Palestinians make up around 40% of the country.

        So what did you think of Mitt Romney's son saving someone from a wrecked car and taking a picture of himself standing next to it?

      Jordon, and it's ruling progressive-politically family,have always been a model other countries in the region should look up to and model themselves after.
