If It's Ok For Jordan...

...shouldn't it be ok also for Israel?

While the Obama administration is preparing to stage a US-Israeli-Palestinian summit at the UN General Assembly in New York next month, Jordan's king Abdullah, who has always claimed to be an ardent champion of the Palestinians, is quietly acting to cut down their numbers and influence in his kingdom.

Just over 50% of Jordan's six million citizens are Palestinian.

On Aug, 6, he addressed the Jordanian General Staff in Amman with a warning that domestic and foreign plots were afoot to stir unrest among the Palestinian majority community.

"I clearly reiterate that no force can compel us to act in any way against the interests of Jordan and Jordanians," Abdullah said. "Anyone who thinks of threatening Jordan, its identity, stability and national unity, does not know Jordan or Jordanians and has not read their history."

Don't expect the "international community", the "United" Nations, the "progressive", international-socialist movement, the Big Media, or even the "Palestinian Authority" to give a crap. After all, who amongst them cares about the "Palestinians" unless it's for the purpose of "pushing Israel into the sea"?

If it's ok for Jordan to treat "Palestinians" like this, then it must also be agreed that it's ok for Israel to do so, too, to protect her national security and sovereignty and existence as a Jewish state.

Please, no double standards!
