King Abdullah on Thursday also paid tribute to the families of the two Jordanians and stressed on Jordan's respect of worldwide laws.

During the funeral procession of Jawawdah on Tuesday, thousands of Jordanians protested against Israel, calling on Jordanian authorities to close the Israeli embassy and scrap the country's peace treaty with Tel Aviv.

This case has been no different.

Dr. Oded Eran, former Israeli ambassador to Jordan, said security measures at the embassy in Amman would be stepped up, but Jordan would also need to take steps.

The Jordanian, who was in the embassy compound for routine furniture replacement, attacked the security official from behind, by stabbing him with a screwdriver, the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Monday.

After the Israeli guard shot and killed the teenager and the building owner, the Israeli government rushed him and the rest of their consular staff out of the country, sparking the biggest diplomatic crisis between Jordan and Israel in years. One might imagine how this could have quickly spiraled out of control.

Palestinians have shown strong disagreement to the motion, and responded by ongoing demonstrations and violent response from the Israeli forces and settlers, where five Palestinians have been killed with live ammunition and attacked by teargas.

The crisis was resolved after a phone call late on Monday between Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Jordan's King Abdullah.

Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the security measures "are to ensure and prevent further incidents or attacks" and would continue. He spoke on Sunday on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the situation with reporters.

This does not mean that King Abdullah is flawless or that Jordan bears zero responsibility.

Israel's security cabinet met on Sunday to review the decision to install metal detectors in the wake of escalating tensions with the Muslim world.

Commenting on Netanyahu's reaction, King Abdullah said his behavior was "unacceptable and provocative".

Tensions between Israel and Jordan were already building over the past week after Jerusalem reinstalled metal detectors at the Temple Mount following a fatal terrorist shooting there.

President Abbas has suspended all contacts between the Palestinian Authority and the Israeli government on Friday in protest of the metal detectors.

Erdoğan is not alone in pouring gasoline on the flames. Any violence that occurs as a result should be laid directly at Abbas's feet.

"Death to Israel!" was another, more familiar chant. The optics appeared to be problematic for both leaders. He is seizing on an issue that is nowhere near his actual purview with the intent of making the situation worse. The embassy has always been a flashpoint of anti-Israel protests at times of turmoil in the Palestinian territories.
