Well well how long does it takes before Israel turned to attacking Lebanon
Syria and Jordan
King Abdullah of Jordan has joined the Arab world’s saber-rattling against Israel and warned that the status of Jerusalem could blow up into another war. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, he also stated that Jordan was better off economically before it made peace with Israel in 1994.
The king also maintained that “Jerusalem specifically engagesJordan because we are the custodians of the Muslim and Christian holy places and this is a flashpoint that goes beyond Jordanian-Israeli relations.” Neither King Abdullah nor the interviewer noted that Jordan denied Jews and Christians access to holy sites when it was really an occupier of part of Jerusalem, including the Old City, Temple Mount and Western Wall, between 1949 and 1967. This was a result of its successful battle against the beleagured young state of Israel. Jerusalem was not part of the land allotted to Jordan.
“The political trust is gone,” he said. “There is no real economic relationship between Jordan and Israel. So economically we were better off in trade and in movement before my father signed the peace treaty.”
