What's bigger than Jerusalem?

Reader comment on item: The US-Israel Honeymoon May Not Last

Submitted by Joseph Shellim (Australia), Feb 9, 2018 at 01:19

What good is the issue concerning Israel's capital, when she faces never ending 2-state demands in the same tiny land? The accounting of a 3-state in the same land as a 2-state is nothing less than open criminal activity which no nation can survive. It is promoted by the UN, the Vatican and all Christian and Islamic leaders, and most suprisingly, accepted by an overwhelmed Israel, and a host of pro-Israel pundits - including the great Daniel Pipes. Its made as a 'given'.
Perhaps Israel needs a bold statesman who declares Jordan as the 2-state; and that Jordan itself was created illegally and immorally, when partition in Palestine was expressly forbidden. Illegally because the original text was decietfully altered when oil was discovered; immorally because with the creaion of some 25 new states that never existed 80 years ago, the only one split asunder was the only one that did exist 3,000 years ago. The partition of Jordan, touted by Churchill as a historic 2-state compromise, became the most substantial cause of the Holocaust; apparently to the regret of Britain:

• "The original text of the Balfour Declaration had read "Palestine should be reconstituted as the National Home of the Jewish people." The text was changed to read "the establishment in Palestine of a Home for the Jewish people." The single word "in" was used subsequently to justify removing all of Transjordan from the British Mandate that resulted from the Balfour Declaration. - [President of Israel, Chaim Weizmann, Trial and Error, 1949, p 257]
