The interview was conducted by the slick CNN obfuscater Fareed Zakaria, who is himself the son of an imam: Interview with King Abdullah II of Jordan; Interview With John Yoo
Carl doens’t buy any:
Jordan’s King Abdullah is playing Chicken Little, touting the ‘fierce moral urgency‘ of establishing a ‘Palestinian state’ before the ‘invisible line’ disappears and leaves his kingdom in danger of becoming the ‘Palestinian state’ as it rightfully should.
In a CNN interview CNN aired Sunday, Abdullah estimated that there wasÂ no more than a monthÂ to move the peace process forward.
He warned of what may take place in the Arab League summit, criticized the American administration and noted that “the credibility of the US is under question.”
The Jordanian king was careful not to personally attack US President Barack Obama, who he said was “extremely committed”. He added, however, that Obama was busy with many other matters and was facing political difficulties, while “we desperately need the undivided attention of the United States in order to set the right tone for negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians.”
Undivided attention? Good luck with that. Not that it would make any difference anyway.
The ‘Palestinians’ have no interest in a state – what they want is to replace the Jewish state. Maybe we can let them replace the Jordanian state. Call it an interim step. They might even get used to it and stop clambering to replace Israel.
