Jordan's King Abdullah is smarter than he looks

Seduced by the sweet nothings of Salam Fayyad, the World maintains the delusion that the 'Palestinians' are somehow ready to assume responsibility for a 'state.' Across the Jordan River, King Abdullah understands that's not the case.
Sheikh Ahmad Abu Mashor, 63, is head of the Jahalin Bedouin, numbering 80,000 in the Jerusalem area and 60,000 in Jordan.

“The Arab world is returning to the tribal tradition. You can see this clearly in the last parliamentary elections in Jordan, in Iraq, and other Muslim nations. Politics is moving in the direction of rejecting political parties and returning to a division based on families and tribes,” he says.

King Abdullah of Jordan “has lost confidence in the Palestinian Authority and the PLO institutions,” he said. “The Jordanian kingdom is working with the Palestinian sheikhs on a channel of cooperation that bypasses the Palestinian Authority.”

“The king knows that the PA has no true basis or control in the field. The security forces and the police are clerks that receive a salary…if they stop paying salaries tomorrow, there’s no police.”

He blames Israel for the current illogical situation in which the Palestinians live, not because of the “occupation” but because the Oslo agreements brought in the Palestinian leadership from the PLO in Tunis.
In other words - and this is true - the biggest mistake Israel made in connection with the Oslo accords was bringing the PLO back from its exile in Tunis. The PLO was dead. Israel - the Rabin-Peres government - brought it back to life.

And just how big a mistake was that?
While the PA leadership refuses to recognize the Jewish people, Sheikh Abu Mashor has no problem relating to the nation of Israel as “a nation that Allah commanded to live in peace….The relation between Jews and Muslims is one of blood ties that cannot be denied. We are cousins.”
Incompetent morons.

I agree except in one detail: it was not Israel that made that mistake - certainly not on her own: she was pressured, & we all know by whom. The US has less than no idea how to deal with the Arab world & never has.

The steps Israel has taken, starting with Oslo, have now created a huge solid base of support in the U.S. Until your demonstration, Americans could simply not believe all the things we've seen regarding not accepting Israel in any borders, the desire for Jews (not just Israeli Jews) to be deleted (this, even after the JCC bombing in Argentina)... This is why (re your post on why the pressure on Israel has paused re the settlements) the Obami are hesitant to go in for the take-down against Israel for the people they want to be part of... Americans won't put up with it. Watch behind the scenes, though. I don't think they've given up.
