According to press reports Jordanian Prime Minister Ayman Safadi embarked on an emergency helicopter flight to Ramallah to speak with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
The obvious topic under discussion was Israelís plan to annex the West Bank.
That might be an exaggeration. But there is no doubt that there will be a cooling off of relations between Jordan and Israel if annexation takes place.
What is clear is that the Israeli cabinet is set to debate the issue on July 1.
US elections will be held in November. Despite Presidentís Trumpís support for annexation, it could be a small, albeit critical, issue that might sway voters away from the incumbent. So the United States is asking Netanyahu to slow down annexation plans and wait until after November.
And thatís probably what will happen.
