What would Egypt and Jordan's interests be in the 3 state solution?

Why would they want to take this Palestinian hot potato from Israel? After all, it was the Nasserist regime that helped create the PLO in the first place and King Hussein who cut off links from his former occupation in 1987.

And assuming they'd be interested, how would those regimes defend themselves against Islamist cries of collaboration with Israel? As "liberators" of the 1967 lands?
