1. Insanity!!!
Jusanz77. ,   Vzla.   (09.05.12)
The corpse-called peace process, have tried to resurrect, more times than there are stars in the sky, only failures. Another failure in sight. Some people do not have the intelligence to learn from your mistakes. Moreover, consider intelligence repeat the same mistake countless times. I think Einstein called it insanity.

4. Oh Lord! Not again!!!
Harry Wright ,   UK   (09.05.12)
Why doesn't Abdullah send Abbas' ass packing and tell him to go and settle with the Israeli's just like Jordan had done in the past. There is no need for third parties to pamper Abbas. Let him look after his affairs like a big man rather than indulge him in this infantile nonsense. Enough is enough, dammit!

6. The only proper peace effort toward which we should strive
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (09.05.12)
is the full implementation of the 1921/22 partition of "Palestine", i.e. ensuring that the 77% that was handed over to the Arabs, east of the Jordan River, 1921, remains Arab; and, the remaining 23% of "Palestine", located between the Jordan River and the Med. Sea, remains "the national home for the Jewish people", as was designated by international law, 1922.

You ask a great question. The answer I think is all about terrorism and stability. If Abdullah were to do as you suggest he would be risking an uprising among his own people and the overthrow of the Kingdom. He just doesn't have that kind of strength. Imagine all the hatred from Iran and Syria and Lebanon for starters. Next thing you know he would have Hamas in his own country. Sad but true.
10. Make Abu Mazen your deputy...oh well...!!!

12. One simple solution
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (09.05.12)
The Jordanians can just obey international law and accept their colonists back into their own country where they belong
13. #8 .Dream on, Benazzi, dream on
A ,   Belgium   (09.05.12)
The US will never bring sanctions against Israel for building settlements in Israel, and who is Israel supposed to negotiate "in good faith" with? The terrorists from Hamas who don't even recognize the State of Israel, or the terrorist Abbas from Fatah, who makes his demands and than walks away from the table. But I guess living on stolen, occupied Native American land makes you some sort of expert in Middle East affairs, right?
14. To: No. 8
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (09.06.12)
I defy you to find one article of international law and convention which says that Israel cannot settle nonsovereign territory it acquired in the course of fighting a DEFENSIVE war. Just one, Ass. Just one. Israel was attacked by Jordan; Jordan was defeated. There is no "negotiation" of borders. The borders are what they became on June 10, 1967. And when nonsovereign Judea and Samaria are annexed by Israel -- all those Jordanian citizens illegally squatting there will be repatriated. War is hell, you know? Rewarding the aggressors is a supremely bad idea, and I don't see it happening ANYWHERE else in the world save Israel.
15. To: Eli at No. 9
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (09.06.12)
You'd think the tiny faux Jordanian (he's half-Iraqi, half-Brit) king would have enough on his plate with the realization that any missiles fired out of Iran don't have the legs to reach Israel and are likely to fall in Jordan. Or Iraq. Perhaps he should gather up his Kuwaiti bride and hightail it out of Jordan. He is not exactly a much-loved monarch.
16. Abdullah is trying to avoid becoming a victim of arab spring
zionist forever   (09.06.12)
The majoirity of the Jordanian population are descended from the 1948 refugees some have Jordanian citizenship whilst others do not. Get the peace process going again and the Jordanians will be focussed on their palestinian brothers and their struggle for statehood against the zionist entity. You distract them from their own domestic problems and they are more content at home becaue they are concerned about whats going on elsewhere.
17. Jordan Urges World.....
ltrail ,   United States   (09.07.12)
The so-called palestinians can have their statehood. Just carve their chunk out of Jordan (50 percent of palestinians live there), or Egypt. But they just want to be a sore in the body of the State of Israel. A peaceful home for the so-called palestinians is oh, so close; yet so far away. Selah.
Iranian Jew ,   LA   (09.07.12)
A PIECE of Jordan to him or just reminding him how he his daddy killed so many Plais last time they tried to get their country back.
19. 14-And that needs to change...pronto.
