Why not say that there is already a Palestinian state called Jordan

Reader comment on item: Obama and Netanyahu Meet: What's Next?

Submitted by MHL (Italy), May 18, 2009 at 10:52

Jordan is not only a Palestinian state - more than 70% of the population define themselves as Palestinian - but it represents 78% of the territory that had been promised by the League of Nations and the Balfour Declaration for the creation of a Jewish state. Thus Jews have already made enormous sacrifices by surrendering Jewish lands to the Arabs

. I'm surprised that Daniel Pipes doesn't lend his voice to revealing the dirty secret of Jordan as a Palestinian state, even if it is controlled by a small group of Hashemites who originally hail from Saudia Arabia. Mr. Pipes should use his bully pulpit to let his readers know there is already a Palestinian state and that the world doesn't need anyother one.
