Israel the enemy of the Palestinians, says Jordanian king

Monday, July 02, 2007 |  by Staff Writer

Helping to perpetuate Arab hatred of the Jewish state, Jordan's King Abdullah on Sunday referred to Israel as the enemy of the Palestinians.

In an interview with the Jordanian newspaper Al-Ghad, Abdullah said that all of the sloganeering and photo-ops ultimately mean nothing for the Palestinians because they “face a solid enemy that works according to programs and plans.”

The king went on to warn Israel that it will never have the peace and security it so desires unless it surrenders to the Arabs' land demands.

Jordan is typically viewed as the most moderate of Arab states and a true peace partner to Israel. However, its leaders have rarely shied away from vocalizing the general Arab position regarding Israel and its control of Judea and Samaria, which Jordan itself illegally occupied from 1948-1967.
