The Ultimate Alternate Israel-Palestine Solution

With a new U.S. president, new ideas are emerging on how to resolve the Israel-Palestine debacle. One of the most promising comes from Jordanian Opposition Council who favor a new Palestinian state — in Jordan. 

By Ted Belman, July 1/17

The GOP unanimously approved a pro-Israel platform at their convention in July 2016 which stipulated:

“The U.S. seeks to assist in the establishment of comprehensive and lasting peace in the Middle East, to be negotiated among those living in the region,”

David Friedman and Jason Greenblatt, representing Donald Trump, participated in the drafting and were in complete agreement with the final text.

Gone was any reference to the Palestinian people or to a two-state solution. In addition, the platform included the words “We reject the false notion that Israel is an occupier.” If not an “occupier,” then presumably Israel is a sovereign.

Jordan is Palestine

by Steve Kramer

Israel Knesset member Yehuda Glick had this to say at the “Jordan is Palestine Conference” held at Menachem Begin Heritage Center on October 17: “The concept of a Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria doesn’t exist anymore, and anyone who is genuine knows that. It is wrong, dangerous, and not possible.” He went on to posit that, “Jordan as a Palestinian state is a serious potential [possibility] because the majority of Jordanians are Palestinian. Before 1967, the Palestinians were Jordanian.”

Note: From 1948-1967, King Hussein of Jordan occupied Judea and Samaria and gave Jordanian citizenship to all the Arab residing there.]

All of the above is true, but very few in the Western world want to believe it. What they want to believe is that the Palestinian Authority, captained by the “saintly President” Mahmoud Abbas, is the vehicle which will deliver the State of Palestine to the “poor Palestinians.” This “Palestine” will be located in Judea and Samaria (they call it the West Bank), will be a thriving democracy (unheard of in the Arab Middle East), and will be a prosperous, progressive state, not a terrorist haven intent on usurping the rest of Israeli territory.

On October 17, 2017 a full-day conference held at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem provided a platform for numerous well-informed activists to explain why the current Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is an obstacle to peace.  All of the speakers agreed that the so-called “two-state” solution is now a dead letter.  Indeed, one could argue that from its official birth on September 13, 1993 the Oslo “peace process” was doomed to failure because it is an Arafat subterfuge and a recipe for Israel’s destruction that was shoved down the public’s throat by the post-Zionist, secular Left establishment that actually controls Israel.  What the 1993 Oslo Declaration of Principles really did was to start a process of de-legitimizing Israel’s right to exist while simultaneously legitimizing the terrorist PLO and its false narrative based on a non-existent “Palestinian” people.

Mass Arab Emigration to Jordan Would Solve Israel’s Palestinian Problem, Suggests Conference


“On that day Hashem made a covenant with Avram, saying, ‘To your offspring I assign this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates.’” Genesis 15:18 (The Israel Bible™)

MK Yehudah Glick speaks at the Jordanian Option Conference in Jerusalem, October 17, 2017. (Eliana Rudee/Breaking Israel News)

“Everybody knows that Jordan is a Palestinian State,” said MK Yehudah Glick at the Jordanian Option Conference in Jerusalem on Tuesday. Nearly every other speaker at the conference agreed that the Jordan ‘option’ is a satisfactory solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

A review Jordan Option Conference

By Raphi Dobrin

Over the years I have gone to numerous talks and conferences on the Israel-Arab confrontation. Most have been interesting. There’s always something new that I learn at these events. But the conference on “The Jordan Option – the Ultimate solution” that I attended on Tuesday, 17th November at Jerusalem’s Begin Center, was different from any event I have ever attended. It went beyond mere words and actually offered hope for a brighter future for this region.

The conference was an all-day affair that featured over a dozen speakers who covered all the aspects connected with the issue of how through a drastic change in Jordanian leadership, a major breakthrough can be made in resolving regional conflict.

The ‘Jordan option’ and the failure of the Israeli right

By Hassan A. Barari, JORDAN TIMES

Implicit in the call for the implementation of the “Jordan option” is the failure of Israel’s leaders to transcend domestic constraints and overcome internal impediments to peace.

The seeming collapse of the peace process has led many analysts to ponder what role Jordan can play in the West Bank.

Should Amman intervene, and if so, under what conditions?

Such questions tend to tie Jordan’s moves in the region to the changing dynamics of the Palestinian political arena.

A foundation for real peace. Really


Today, a special conference is being held at the Begin Center to discus the “Jordanian option” for a political solution. On the chapter “What is!” When it is clear to every rational person that the Palestinian Authority and Hamas are “what’s not!” We prefer to ignore the fact that it is the body that determined it decisively, and it is clear that all the lands west of the Jordan River will be allocated to the use of the Jewish home as a member of the Commonwealth. However, in 1946, It is important to repeat the truth: There was never, in 1948, a sovereign Arab state in all the lands west of the Jordan River.

The conference was A HUGE SUCCESS

By Ted Belman

The long awaited conference on The Jordan Option came and went, not without its drama.

First the event itself and then the drama.

About 200 people showed up for this historical event including many bloggers and i24 News.  We could have and should have had more main stream press.  Of particular note was that Amira Haas of Haaretz registered for the Conference.

The speakers preformed brilliantly in so far as what they had to say and how they said it. Its all on video tape. I am working feverishly to get it loaded.  It will be available to anyone who donates $18.00 to Israpundit.

Paradigm shift on a two-state solution

Op-ed: Promoting Jordan as the Arab Palestinian state is consistent with international law and would resolve the problem of national self-determination both for Arabs living in Judea and Samaria and for those in Israel.

By Moshe Dann, YNET

The problem with “the two-state solution” —creating a sovereign independent Palestinian state west of the Jordan River—is that a Palestinian state already exists east of the Jordan River; it’s called Jordan. Its population is predominantly “Palestinian” and it is located in the eastern part of what was once called “Palestine.” Demographically and geographically, therefore,

Jordan is a Palestinian state.

The Oslo Accords, however, removed the “Jordanian option” from the range of possible alternatives. Instead, Yasser Arafat, the PLO and the Palestinian Authority (PA) were installed as the rulers of what was intended to be another Palestinian state west of the Jordan River. The “peace plan” failed not only because of Palestinian terrorism, but also because of the opposition to Israel’s existence. Moreover, the PA—which includes Hamas and other Arab terrorist organizations—and the PLO never intended it to work. Their goal is to destroy Israel.

Why I agreed to speak at the Jordan Option Conference

By Rachel Avraham

A few months ago, Palestinian Jordanian dissident Mudar Zahran invited me to speak at the Jordan Option Conference in Jerusalem.  He asked me to take part in this conference at a time when King Abdullah of Jordan was increasingly inciting violence against Israel, thus greatly contributing towards tension in the Middle East. This incitement led by the Islamic Movement, Hamas, Fatah and Jordan’s king created an atmosphere in Israel where two Druze police officers and an Israeli family sitting at the Sabbath dinner table in Halamish were murdered.  Around the same period of time, an Israeli was stabbed in a supermarket in Yavne, a female terrorist attempted to stab a Haredi man in Jerusalem while actually stabbing an Israeli Arab who was wearing a tee-shirt with Hebrew letters on it and another Israeli was stabbed in Petach Tikva, which is not too far away from the city of Netanya, where I live.

Bassam Eid and Naftali Bennett Seem to Agree


Oct 7, 2015 · Updated Feb 

View image on Twitter

Palestinian Arabs and The Jewish Home party may seem like strange bedfellows but sometimes life offers truths that fiction would never dare propose. The Arabs might actually not think too badly of the solution to the conflict that has been offered up for consideration by The Jewish Home party. In contrast, our own left-wing Jews consider party leader Naftali Bennett a racist and attribute to him no other desire than to annex all of the so-called West Bank and freeze the Arabs in the territories into a permanent state of second-class status with no chance of gaining sovereignty over their own affairs. Serious attention to what Bennett’s party actually proposes, as opposed to what people think it proposes, may surprise some. Furthermore, when comparing what Bassem Eid says about the Palestinian condition and the desires of many Arabs living on the West Bank, we may find that Bennett is not so far out there.

The Sunni nations and the “Jordan Option”


On September 1, 1967, the Arab League summit delivered the “Three No’s” – no to peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, and no negotiations with Israel. This declaration was passed as part of the Khartoum resolution, at a summit attended by eight Arab heads of state in the shadow of the Six-Day War, which saw Israel’s unprecedented defeat of Egypt, Jordan and Syria. For the past 70 years, this has been the official policy of all Sunni nations in the Middle East, no to Israel and yes to the Palestinians demand for an independent state, until now. All of this has now come to an end.

The “Jordan-is-Palestine” Conference-Why I agreed to participate


Of all the “Right-wing” alternatives for the two-state formula, the “Jordan-is-Palestine” concept is the only not one inconsistent with the underlying principles of the “Humanitarian Paradigm”

Palestine and Transjordan are one, for Palestine is the coastline and Transjordan is the hinterland of the same countryKing Abdullah, Cairo, April 12, 1948.

Jordanians and Palestinians are considered by the PLO as one people -Farouk Kaddoumi, Head of the PLO Political Department, Newsweek, March 14, 1977.

Palestine is Jordan and Jordan is Palestine…Prince Hassan, Jordanian National Assembly, February 2, 1970.

The truth is that Jordan is Palestine and Palestine is Jordan -King Hussein of Jordan, Amman, 1981.

Let us not forget the East Bank of the Jordan [River] where seventy percent of the inhabitants belong to the Palestinian nation.  George Habash, leader of the PFLP of the PLO, February 1970.

Next Tuesday (Oct 17), a well-publicized conference on the “Jordan-is-Palestine”  idea, as the preferred resolution for the Israel-Palestine conflict, will be held at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center  in Jerusalem, organized by Ted Belman, editor, the well-known news blog, Israpundit  and  Mudar Zahran, Secretary-General of the Jordan Opposition Coalition.

Zahran has the support of the Bedouins in Jordan

Dr Nancy Sher, JERUSALEM HERALD interviewed Abed (Abedalelah) Almaala who is speaking at the Jordan Option conference. She writes:

Abed (Abedalelah) Almaala, deputy secretary of the Jordanian Opposition Coalition (JOC) and a member of the Bani Hassan tribe, spoke with The Jerusalem Herald about his upcoming presentation at the conference on the question: “Will the Jordanian Tribes Rebel Against The New Government?”

An outspoken critic of the monarchy, Almaala views Jordan’s King Abdullah II as the primary impediment to a better life for the Jordanian people. Citing the high cost of maintaining the royal family, he argues that most of Jordan’s tribes believe the future of the country depends on a change in the Hashemite regime.  

Almaala shared scathing criticism for the disparity of Jordanian life between king and subjects, claiming the monarch has been “looting the expenditures of the Jordanian budget.”

Mudar Zahran is the leading opposition figure in Jordan though the slanderers say otherwise.

By Ted Belman

I have worked with Mudar Zahran for 7 years and can attest that he is very intelligent, persuasive and knowledgeable. He never lied to me in all this time so far as I know.

But many are smearing him without regard to the truth.

How could one help but be aware that Mudar Zahran, the Conference: The Jordan Option and those who support him and it are under attack, and if I may say so, vicious attack. The attacks have been going on since we announced the conference at the beginning of July. Over the last three months and especially in the last month, a full scale war has been waged against us.

Change in Jordan, Easy, Cheap and Good for Everyone

By Mudar Zahran, JEWISH PRESS

Despite Israel’s desire to protect the Hashemite regime, and stay out of messy Arab internal politics, it is now public knowledge that the Israeli intelligence establishment believes that Jordan’s king’s fall is imminent, and Israeli officials have been whispering that in private for a while, desperately discussing ways to save king and keep him in power. Nonetheless, a well-calculated, carefully-ushered and engineered change in Jordan could pose a huge opportunity for US, Israel, our Jordanian people, and all of those who want peace.

No, we’re not seeking a total regime change in Jordan, in which the state itself is turned into nothingness, leaving a gap for Islamists to jump in and take over. That was Obama’s style at best, because Obama did not know better, or at worst, because he wanted the Islamists to take over.
