Another version of Israel Victory?

Reader comment on item: Why Israelis Shy from Victory

Submitted by Camelinspace (Israel), Sep 25, 2018 at 07:27

A new idea was floated on TV the other day. A mideast analyst mentioned that that West Bank issue can be solved quite easily via partition with Jordan: Israel would get area C, Jordan gets area A, and both countries would split area B. His theory is that Jordan would agree to this if the US is adamant about it and gives billions in aid to Jordan. That said, it seems that historically speaking, Jordan vacillates between wanting either the entire disputed territory or nothing. Is the idea of a partition of the West Bank between two sovereign states wishful thinking?

Daniel Pipes replies:

It would be helpful if the Jordanian government would take control of the West Bank. But, despite some feints in this direction, I came away from a visit to Amman last year with the very strong sense that this is not going to happen. The Jordanians are relieved to be unburdened of it.
