Jordan Says: Tow The Line
By Micah Halpern

Sunday February 25, 2007

I've Been Thinking:

The King of Jordan was interviewed on Israel's news station Channel 2.
His comments were forthright, analytical and surprising.

"There's international common ground - not just Western but also Arab and to an extent Muslim - that believe that there have to be certain criteria that the new government has to accept if we're going to move the process forward."

"You have a president, Mahmoud Abbas, who is your negotiator, who ... is prepared to be able to move the peace process forward, and a government that's going to be formed that will have to adhere to the Quartet conditions."

He said that the Arab Quartet - Jordan, Egpyt, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates - all agree that the Palestinians must accept the Quartet's three guidelines: accept Israel, firght terror and accept preexisting conditions.

Abdullah King of Jordan, a legitimate, recognized and respected leader within the Arab world is siding with the West over another Arab country.
That doesn't happen very often.

If only ... if only a respected Arab leader would stand up and be this critical of Iran.
