Reader comment on item: Is Jordan Palestine?

Submitted by stasland (United States), Mar 26, 2012 at 16:38

The really interesting question is : why did no Arab make any peep about occupation or conquerors or usurpers when Jordan was in control of the West Bank? But as soon as the Israelis won it in the 1967 war, then suddenly there was a Palestinian people who had been occupied... Interesting how that makes perfect sense to the Arabs and their apologists.
