Secretary of State John Kerrys effusive optimism regarding the peace talks have been a source of concern not only to Netanyahu, but also to King Abdulla II of Jordan. The two leaders secret meeting yesterday in Amman made public almost immediately by the Jordanianswas devoted to one issue: Jordan is very unhappy about the possibility that Israel would take the IDF out of the Jordan Valley.
Jewish Press According to Makor Rishon, the Jordanians dont care if the plan is to remove the IDF now, or in 10 or even in 50 years. They dont want Israel out of that stretch of land across the water, period. The immediate outcome of the two neighboring leaders getting together, a Jordanian source told Makor Rishon, is another devaluation of the chances of Kerry coming up with a comprehensive plan.
If, two weeks ago, there was a fifty-fifty chance that such a document be presented, now that chance is much lower, the source said. For now, the Americans believe theyd be able to draft a paper, but theyve been running into bigger and bigger difficulties. Its possible that in the end theyll put nothing on the table, or theyd put down something and say, Take it or leave it. Maybe theyll degrade the documents contents, to enable both sides to accept itbut that would also mean that whatever achievement they reached over these past months will be lost, and that would also be problematic.
Israel and Jordan have been maintaining an effective security cooperation along Israels eastern border. When asked in private, the Jordanians are vehemently opposed to having Palestinian forces posted along the river, preferring without hesitation the current arrangement. But, obviously, they cant say that publicly.
If the security plan of General George Allen is implemented, Jordan would have to change its own security alignment long the river. The plan calls for international, Israeli and Palestinian forces to be posted, and the Jordanianslike anyone who hasnt drunk Kerrys Kool Aidknow this will only mean trouble.
Best headline ever.
Give him a new sea doo and kite board and kayak
“how to neutralize John Kerry”
Easy — just get the Swift Vets to speak up and tell the truth about Kerry to the American people. They must know some horrible things about him, for them to ban together and speak out against him, though they didn’t reveal what they knew.
I think Kerry must have done some really dreadful things that if they were known, he couldn’t get a job as dogcatcher and may even end up in jail.
My mini-doxie’s vet could probably neutralize John Kerry. It’s probably about the same size equipment, I suspect.
Talk to Tereza—she’s probably had practice in neutralizing (or is it neutering) JFnK.
I’ve long had the idea that getting some really influential Sunni imams to proclaim that the Hashemite King of Jordan is the rightful Caliph would greatly improve the situation in the Muslim world — they have the correct lineage, being descended from Mohammed, but are level-headed, modernizing and pro-Western (at least in comparison to any other conceivable claimant to the title).
JFnK still hasn't submitted Standard Form SF180 to release his full military record DIRECTLY to the public, not after it had been redacted by his attorneys.
That's all the Swiftees ever wanted.
They need to get in touch with John O’Neil!
I know A Way But It’s Illegal!
give him the g-d Nobel that he craves and he’ll go away, to be remembered as the likes of Neville Chamberlain.
We’re seeing an alliance of Israel, Jordan, and the Saudis taking shape against Iran and the US.
If thats not weird.
Definitly a good idea, and something to work toward. However, the Saudi royal family were foes of the Hashemites during the period after World War I. The Hashemites were the rulers of the area that contain Mecca and Medina until they were defeated by the Sauds.
“Were seeing an alliance of Israel, Jordan, and the Saudis taking shape against Iran and the US.”
Saudi and Jordan post the 1966 war have been on the same side. They just can not say it. When and if Israel attack Iran’s nuclear program it will be across Jordan and Saudi air space. Jordan and Saudi will “not have noticed” the aircraft on their air defense radars.
Fine by me...
Neutralize? The mafia can do that.
It almost seems Biblical. Things are getting crazier by the day.
Good luck its going to be like getting gum off the bottom of your shoe.
