I've Been Thinking:
Abdullah King of Jordan will be in Washington, DC on Tuesday for talks with President George Bush.
The King wants to discuss how to move along the president's idea of a summit. The King wants Palestinians, Israelis and others to advance towards peace.
The King wants to help.
The King wants to plead the Palestinian case.
Jordan is making a big tactical error.
Jordan is playing the wrong game - they should be pleading their own case.
Relations between Jordan and the US are much improved, but for example, the US gives Egypt over $2 billion a year and Jordan gets only about $250 million.
Jordan should be positioning itself as a friend of the United States in the region rather than the mouthpiece of the Palestinians.
Only by helping the United States will the Jordanians be able to help themselves - and then by extension they can help the entire region, including the Palestinians.
Wise up Abdullah King of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
