Palestinians have a more secure future than Israel: Jordan's King

Amman , Tue, 13 Sep 2011 ANI

Amman, Sept 13 (ANI): Jordan's King Abdullah II has said the recent uprisings across the Arab world have put Israel in a difficult position, and the future of his country and Palestine is now stronger than Israel.


King Abdullah, one of the Jewish state's last Muslim allies, told a closed meeting of Jordanian intellectuals and academics that, "Jordan and the future of Palestine are stronger than Israel. It is the Israelis who are worried today."


Israelis fear that the recent Arab uprisings, along with a diplomatic crisis with former partner Turkey and stalled peace talks with the Palestinians, have left their nation increasingly isolated.


Besides Jordan, Egypt is the only other Arab nation that signed a peace deal with Israel.


Abdullah also said that during a recent visit to the United States, an Israeli intellectual told him that the Arab Spring serves Israeli interests.


"I answered: 'On the contrary, you are today in a more difficult position than before," he added.


According to the telegraph, he also rejected the notion that his country should take in Palestinians as a substitute for the creation of a state for them.


"Jordan will never be a substitute land for anyone," Abdullah said.


"It makes no sense. We have an army and we are ready to fight for our homeland and the future of Jordan. We should speak loudly and not allow such an idea to remain in the minds of some of us," he said.


"Jordan is Jordan, and Palestine is Palestine," he added. (ANI)
