Breaking News: Jordan waves annulling the peace treaty with Israel
Jordan government appear to have heard the millions of voices asking and pleading to kick the Israeli Ambassador out of Jordan and to annul the Israeli-Jordanian peace treaty in an amazing turn of events.
That's not all, the Jordanian Ambassador to Israel Ali Al Ayed appears to be in a mandatory "vacation" in Jordan.
Are we going to see the light at the end of the tunnel for Jordan?
I talked couple of days ago how the Israeli-Jordanian peace treaty falls short of the hopes and dreams of Jordanians but even worse for Palestinians, and the rest of the Arab world.
But this turn of events is important... here's why..
1) 31 Members of the Parliament are spearheading a Movement to force the government to annul the treaty and to kick the Ambassador out.
2) Al Thahabi, appears to be waving the choices that Jordan has to push diplomacy forward. One of these mentioned choices is the Peace treaty
3) Apparently, the Jordanian government is hesitating to take any action until it gets a certain level of assurances from Arab nations particularly, withdrawing the Arab peace initiative.
4) I guess finally the government is expecting to see the repercussions of such a step by the United state and how it will affect the Aid to Jordan
Are these all good indicators of some selfless acts by the Jordanian government, a maneuver to win some time, or a cheap way to gain some popularity in the eyes of the millions who are chanting against the Kingdom? Or did we suddenly struck a previously undiscovered vein of real blood in the face of Jordanian diplomacy while millions of Turks, Kurds, Iranians, Pakistanis, Indians, Indonesians, Malaysians and Mauritanians have appeared to be more loyal to the cause than the Palestinian twin...
Or perhaps the solidification of the alternate-homeland through what is going on right now on the ground is scaring Jordan?
Time will tell... But this is certainly a step in the RIGHT direction
