Link I like Abdullah II. Actually, I kind of like all the Jordanians. Their monarchy is "legit", as far as legitimacy can be conferred by blood: they're descended from Fatima, one of Mohammed's daughters, and have a reasonably legit claim to be caliphs if they were so inclined, but are not. They have a generally reform-minded government (graded on a curve) and are fairly good to the displaced Palestinians in their territory (graded on one HELL of a curve, but still...), and are pretty solid allies for both the US and Israel (again, graded on a curve). And, well, I think it's a little easier to trust a Trekkie than some other types.
