BREAK JORDAN IN HALF

Reader comment on item: Breaking the Palestinians' Will to Fight

Submitted by Ilene Richman, Apr 10, 2017 at 11:02

Needless to say, Jordan sits on land given to Israel in the time of Abraham. In 1923, Winston Churchill, tiring of the Arabs, divided the Middle East into countries and gave Jordan Israeli land. The Balfour Declaration clearly states that Israel should be declared a country in the Middle East and retrieve its own land. Since Jordan's population is mostly Palestinian, I believe Jordan should be divided in half. 1/2 should be given to the Palestinians and 1/2 to Jordan. King Abdullah is a made up king as are all the leaders in the Arab countries. All Palestinians should then be moved to the land of Palestine in Jordan and have a country. The West Bank belongs to Israel via Abraham and the 1948 and 1967 wars in which Israel was attacked by all the Arab countries. Israeli blood was shed heavily then and throughout the following years..All of Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and should be named the capital, as promised by Pres. Trump. In this manner, Palestinians (corrupt) can live in their own country annexed from Jordan. This is the simple solution to the Palestinians, a group made up by Yasser Arafat, an Egyptian, who was corrupt, stole money from the Palestinians and kept them in poverty. The Palestinians are another group of Arabs.

Haven't we had enough of these Arab countries and their wars feuding with each other over religion? Israel has done its share. Israel has given the Sinai to Egypt, Gaza to Hamas, a sliver of land to Jordan. Enough is enough. The Arabs occupy 97% of the Middle East. It is time to let Israel have its own land that it fought and died for, the West Bank and Jerusalem.

Daniel Pipes replies:

The Jordan-is-Palestine thesis is wrong, as I showed in a major 1988 article. Look it up.
