Jordanian Nationalism is a nationalistic ideology that considers the Jordanian People a part of the Arab Nation. Mostly attributed to the Great Arab Revolt in 1916 and the slogan launched by King Abdullah II in 2002 Jordan first. It was also seen during the British Mandate in the beginning of the 20th century, both Muslim, Christian and Circassian tribes in Jordan supported the independence of the Emirate of Transjordan from British administration.[1]
