Yes Jordan is Palestine

Reader comment on item: Is Jordan Palestine?

Submitted by student (United States), Mar 6, 2012 at 17:39

Of course Jordan is Palestine! The families in the area have always been related, and you will find it very common for Jordanians to have relatives who live in the West Bank, just as the Egyptians have families related to them in Gaza. They are all part of the same population, and Jordan was allocated to the residents in Palestine under both Ottoman and British empires.
