You are accurate on the Religious Argument but you misunderstand the Secular Argument.

It was the adoption of the Vague Article 25 of the Palestine Mandate
which allowed Church and subsequent British Imperialists
to Prohibit Jews from Settling in Eastern Palestine;
that "Divide and Conquer" act did create a 100% non-Jewish entity
in East Palestine which called itself Transjordan instead of East Palestine in 1946
when it became independent.

In other words te British Mandate continued only after WW II (not I).
That means that since 1946 there has been a Palestinian State in existence,
and today it is known as Jordan.

However, what I think Daniel Pipes does not appreciate here
is that nothing necessarily follows from that
if you can think-out-of-the-box.

Dr. Daniel Pipes has consistently used the term "Victory"
in his Strategic (as opposed to "Advocacy" Narrative;
However, I hold that "PEACE" is the more appropriate term
(except for Iran, Hamas, Islamic Jihad).
Victory generally involves war and land-conquest.
But Peace involves policies and strategies and tactics
in the land under your military and police control.

Down the road may be some sort of Confederation or Confederacy
between East Palestine and West Palestine (Jordan and Israel);
that would probably also entail that Jordan not be 100%
Ethnically Clean of Jews at the very least.
One really needs to think out-of-the-box;
the UAE has invested in a project
whereby Solar Panels in Jordan
will produce Electricity for Israel
while Desalinated Sea-Water
will be produced for Water-Starved Jordan
while the UAE will profit financially from this peaceful economic enterprise.
This is not a consequence of Victory, but that of Peace
- which obviously involves other Arab Cousins of Jews (Israelis)
through the 2 sons of Abraham [Accords];
it is also related to the religious fact that Jews
under the Koran follow a recognized Holy Religion, Judaism.
