There is a crucial mistake in the facts!

Reader comment on item: Is Jordan Palestine?

Submitted by Michal (Israel), Nov 22, 2010 at 07:47

The paragraph "Eight Months of the British Mandate" contains a misleading header and description: It is claimed that the only mandatory of GB over Palestine was internationally agreed on July 1923 - and therefore the entity "Palestine", which was ruled on the eight months, is irrelevant.

The fact is that GB gained an international mandatory on Palestine already in April 1920 (San Remo resolution). The artificial separation/administration between east Palestine (=Transjordan) and west Palestine only occurred in 1922 solely by GB, and therefore can't be regarded as an international legitimate act.

So yes, Jordan IS Palestine, and after the Israeli-Jordanian Peace Treaty of 1994 - as Jordan removed all claims for Judea and Samaria (formerly "the West Bank") - they are now part of Israel and should be annexed to Israel. Its Arab citizens should be moved to Jordan/Palestine.
