Jordanian King to US Jews: Support PA State, 2002 Saudi Plan
inn ^ | 5/11.10 | Hana Levi Julian

Jordan's King Abdullah II turned to Jewish leaders from the United States this week in hopes of convincing them to help pressure Israel to accept the 2002 Saudi Peace Plan as a means of getting talks with the Palestinian Authority back on track. The king and his wife, Queen Rania, who was born in a region today controlled by the Palestinian Authority, met Tuesday with the heads of the American Jewish Congress at the Royal Court in Amman to urge them to support an independent PA state.

Abdullah told AJCongress President Richard S. Gordon and co-executive directors Matthew Horn and Marc Stern that Israel's security would be best served under the 2002 Saudi Peace Initiative. He added that it was in the strategic interests of the entire region for peace to be made between Israel and its Arab neighbors, including the Palestinian Authority.

When will the little king abdicate and give his
Hashemite kingdom to the Palestinians?

Is this the same Jordan that invaded proto-Israel in 1948 and committed “ethnic cleansing” of Jewish citizens in East Jerusalem until being kicked out in 1967?

And we should listen to them why?

Abdullah of Jordan is concerned about the security of the Hashemite royal family. Their power and political position.

Jordan is not a democracy. The majority of Jordanians are Palestinian Arabs. What Abdullah wants is to continuously shift the attention of the Jordanians away from that fact by always blaming Israel for this or that.

Abdullah’s father, the late King Hussein, had tens of thousands of Palestinian Arabs killed in order to protect their Hashemite monarchy from the PLO.

This is what we get for supporting our Muslim “Allies” those “good” Muslims as opposed to the bad ones.

I hope people start to realize that there are no good Muslims.

Start by returning kosovo to the Serbians.

And recognize the Armenian Genocide!

Just a start.

Decisions affecting Israel should only be made by the citizens of Israel, and their democratically-elected representatives. King Hussein and Jewish-Americans should have no role in Israeli politics. Those of us who are not Israeli resident citizens, cannot imagine what it means, to live under rocket fire being fired by Hamas terrorists. Therefore, we have no business forcing Israelis to take decisions that will cost them lives.

Arab governments never tolerate any BS from Palestinians. When Palestinian residents of Kuwait supported Saddam’s invasion of Kuwait in 1990, the Emir of Kuwait threw all the Palestinians out of his country, when America restored him to power in 1991.

Libya also chased Palestinians out of their country in the 1990s, to protest Arafat’s involvement in the Oslo accords. Nobody made a big deal out of these expulsions. But when the late Rabbi Kahane suggested that Palestinians leave Israel, he was shouted down as a “Nazi” by many Jewish-Americans.

Not going to happen, from the article:

“The plan referred to by the Jordanian king was initiated by King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia in 2002. It calls for the 22-member Arab League to recognize the State of Israel as a country, but not necessarily as a Jewish state. In return, Israel would be required to surrender all of the lands of Judea, Samaria and Gaza, as well as numerous neighborhoods in Israel’s capital city of Jerusalem, and the ancient Old City of Jerusalem, which contains Judaism’s holiest sites — and where the proposed PA state intends to make its capital. In addition, the plan calls for Israel to allow the immigration of some five million foreign Arabs who claim ancestry in Israel, under a so-called “right of return.””

Breaking Message for the king: The PA already has a state. It’s called Jordan.

Yeah well I don’t know anything about the bible, just that it’ll be a cold day in hell before even most liberial Israelies accept that plan.

This from the little King who still maintains the death penalty for selling property to a Jew. I'm told honor killings might bring 6 months these days, so I suppose that's progress.

Can you blame him. Palestinians killed his pop, the little Kings grandpop, and planned on killing him.

Accept a prefab Peace Plan in order to get *talks* back on track. Imagine the mental level of someone who would think that demand even makes sense. Thanks Nachum.
