Jordan King Says Unilateral Action Could Ignite Jerusalem ” Tinderbox”
Sheik yer’mami sez: no Arabs, no tinderbox….
Update: “Jerusalem Tense as Arab Leaders Visit Disputed Holy Site,” by Robert Berger for theÂ Voice of America, October 7, JW
Jewish officials say Arab and Palestinian leaders are deliberately inciting violence during the Feast of Tabernacles. Elisha Peleg is a member of the Jerusalem City Council. “It is well organized,” Peleg alleges. “They know when to increase the riots and where to make the riots; and unfortunately, our neighbors do not like to see us very much celebrating and praying to our God.”
Perfectly in line with what Robert reminds us about restrictions on dhimmisÂ here.
Amman, Oct.8(Petra – Jordan news agency)
His Majesty King AbdullahÂ demanded that Israel stop all unilateral actions that threaten holy sites inÂ Jerusalem and the identity of the holy city. (Jerusalem is holy for Jews. Â Since it is not mentioned once in the Koran, Â it means nothing to Muslims/ed)
He warned that such actions threaten to destabilise not only Israel’s
relationship with Jordan, which has a special concern and role in Jerusalem
that is recognised in the peace treaty. (The Arabs have never honored any peace treaty, so Jordan can shove its ‘concerns’/ed)
It will also inflame the Islamic world and jeopardise efforts to re-launch
peace negotiations. (The “Islamic world” is inflamed since the 7th century. What’s different now?/ed) Continued below the fold…

King Abdullah was speaking in an interview on Tuesday with Israel’s Haaretz
newspaper, excerpts of which were published today with the full interview to
be published tomorrow.
King Abdullah said that he had emphasised the sensitivity and sanctity of
Jerusalem with every Israeli prime minister, including Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu, and the American Administration.
The holy city should be a symbol of coexistence among the three monotheistic
religions, he added.
The King also stressed the need to end settlement activities.
When asked whether he supports building a wall in Jerusalem, King Abdullah
said he did not believe in walls and that walls eventually come down.
King Abdullah said the status quo cannot be perpetuated, because “we are
sliding back into the darkness”.
He said it was difficult to be hopeful for the region’s future without a
two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as part of a
comprehensive settlement between the Arab states and Israel.
“Because if there is no two-state solution, what future do we all have
together? Show me the future of Israel 10 years from now.
Where do you want Israel to be vis- -vis its relationship with Jordan and
other Arab countries?” he asked.
Israel should decide if it is going to be fortress Israel or is it going to
be part of the neighbourhood, he added.
The King was asked about Jordanian-Israeli ties, 15 years after the signing
of the peace treaty between the two countries.
He recalled the atmosphere that prevailed in 1994 and the promise of peace,
saying that “our relationship is getting colder.
” King Abdullah attributed the gap between the two countries to the failure
to achieve comprehensive peace and to realize a two-state solution to the
