Jordan is home for palestinians

Reader comment on item: Is Jordan Palestine?

Submitted by clarence paul puckett (United States), Oct 14, 2007 at 00:36

After Gen. Allenby defeated the ottoman turks, who controlled trans-jordan and what is now Israel for over 400 years, the british mandate was for Israel to have her own homeland and Jordan was to be the home for the palestinians. The latter tried to overthrow king hussain and he killed 20-25 thousand of them.

Arafat and his clowns went to lebanon and created havoc and hell there. Israel reaching out with an olive branch of peace invited Arafat and his band back to the territories and armed their police and so-called soldiers, one of the greatest mistakes in Israel's history, since then American Presidents have advocated giving land for peace even after five arab invasions which was squashed and land occupied and used as a buffer zone. I believe Israel should have kept these lands and used them for that purpose.

Now Israel has given control to the temple mount to the arabs and they are doing excavations to that site to destroy any and all evidence of Jewish history and past temples. They also have in their midst over one million arab-Israelis who prosper and some serve in their Knesset and could easialy serve as a fifth invasion force if another one occurs.

Our current administration pressures Israel to restrain herself after many attacks from fatah and hamas. Bush and Condaleeza Rice has also funded Fatah and armed them and in alot of cases Hamas has captured the supplies and weapons we have sent to fatah. Maybe, possibly God has invoked his curse on us for aiding and abetting Israel's enemies, I hope not, but I couldn't blame him for our favor going to barbarians instead of our true friends and allies[Israel] maybe the only real one we have left in the world and we had not abandon her in her hour of need.
