King Abdullah: Jordan Is Responsible for Arab Interests in Jerusalem, Not the Palestinians

King Abdullah of Jordan made some very strong statements against Jews going to the Temple Mount. Should Israel be concerned?
Jerusalem Center Arab Affairs analyst Pinhas Inbari noted: “I think that the Muqata in Ramallah should be more concerned than Israel because King Abdullah’s main message was not against Israel, as strange as it may seem, it was against the Muqata in Ramallah, because King Abdullah of Jordan was representing the Palestinian problem instead of the PLO, and he mentioned his sole responsibility over Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa mosque, which is the role of the Palestinians, as far as they are perceiving their role in Jerusalem. And he did not mention the Palestinians in Jerusalem, but he mentioned the Arabs in Jerusalem, which means there is no legitimacy to the PA in Jerusalem.” Read More »
