Remember this post from a few months back that was a case of mistaken identity, as published on the website of the Epoch Times? Well the confusion over who exactly King Abdullah is and what country he rules over has spread elsewhere. The first time I found it a bit funny. I’ve seen it a few times since but decided to brush it off. But this one was kind of side by side, so it really got my attention. Someone has to do the fact checking for these sites that claim to be news organizations. I mean, come on!
There are currently 30 Monarchies around the world, 8 of which are Arab nations and 2 of which both have a King Abdullah: Jordan and Saudi Arabia.
This, “confusion”, has only happened recently since Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah took power after his brother died in August 2005.
