This issue is very important to the Palestinian cause and it is vital to Jordan! In the last weeks, after Netanyahu's new government in Israel, more and more people are calling to create a Palestinian state in Jordan by expelling Palestinians and by denying the "Right of return" which is protected under international laws.
According to some news sources, the Foreign Affairs Committee in the Knesset discussed a proposal to evict all Palestinians to Jordan. The proposal was submitted by Aryeh Eldad, a member of the right-wing secular party Hatikvah.
In a recent article published in the party's website entitled "Jordan is Palestine", Eldad said:
Between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean, only one country has a right to exist, the State of Israel. Palestinians have a state across the river. They are 70 percent of its citizens.
Unfortunately, Eldad's voice is not the only one which asks to destroy two states, both Jordan and Palestine, in order to create a Greater Israel, that will include all the land between River Jordan and the Mediterranean Sea. Including, of course, Jerusalem in a "Jewish-only" state.
Our government is asleep. Jordanian officials are mute, they do not talk about this issue. Please can someone wake them up!
