  1. Why do politicians always look so awkward and uncomfortable in these press release pictures?

    What is said to be the largest flag in the world flies proud over Jordan’s Red Sea city of Aqaba overlooking Israel. It is not a Jordanian flag however, but a Palestinian flag. King Abdullah a US trained Special Forces operator is a friend of the US, and the best ally in the region to make the two state solution work out.

      Sorry David. There has never been a state called “Palestine”. The so-called “Palestinians” are merely Bedouin Arabs whose tribes are scattered all over the middle east. Some would argue that they are in fact, Jordanians, but I don’t think they are Hashemites.

      Misc arabs and some Jordanians originally. With Arafat tried to overthrow Jordan, got run out,tried to overthrow Israel, got run out. Instead of going back to their original countries, they couldn’t leave gaza under death threats from Arafat. 50+years later we are where we are. They weren’t even called palestinians until our press started calling them that around 1970. Up to then, any palestinian was always assumed to be jewish people that lived in the area.

  3. Screw Jordan. They push their rif raf onto the border to harass Israel and call their terrorist tools Palestinians. No such thing as a Palestinian.

    “but only if both parties agree.”
