Lieberman: ‘Jordan is Palestine’ claim harms Israel
By JPOST.COM STAFF
Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Monday that the claim that Jordan is the Palestinian state is not based in reality and those who push such a view do so at the detriment of Israeli interests.
Speaking at a Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee meeting, Lieberman added that the claim that Jordan is Palestinecontradicts international law and the Israeli-Jordanian peace agreement.
MK Ariye Eldad (National Union) accused Lieberman of burying his head in the sand, responding to theforeign minister’s claim that anyone who says “Jordan is Palestine” does damage to Israeli interests.
Eldad is a proponent of an initiative known as “Jordan is Palestine.”
Lieberman should know, Eldad added, that “when the Arab Spring reaches Jordan, King Abdullah will run away like [former Libyan ruler Muammar] Gaddafi.” If Israel doesn’t prepare a plan based on that reality, Eldad said, it “will miss the biggest historic opportunity since Oslo to prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state east of the Jordan [River].”
