Jordan Times and other sources say that Jordan is going back to UTC+2 on 
2013-12-19 at midnight:

Official, in Arabic:

We assume they mean going back from 2013-12-20 00:00 to 2013-12-19 
23:00, but it could also be one hour later, which is what they have 
normally done in the past.

Based on the wording in the article, they call it coming back to winter 
time, so I think it would be best to change the Rules for Jordan and 
Zone for Amman, so it says DST started back in March 2012, never ended 
for the 2012/2013 winter and lasted all to December 2013.
