By far, the smartest player in the Middle East is JORDAN. After the 67 war, Israel offered to return the entire West Bank back to Jordan for nothing in return. And Jordan refused so they could sacrifice this piece of land to dump their Palestinians on Israel to deal with. In 1970 king Hussein gave his remaining Palestinians Black September which resulted in the one & only lasting peace ever achieved from Palestinians. In 1993, king Abdullah marries the most gorgeous of all Palestinian women & refuses any right of return to all the rest of the Palestinians. In 1994, Jordan signs a peace treaty with Israel that is still binding to this day while the other Arab Spring nations are now killing their own citizens in their own countries. And today, Jordan has open boders with Israel whereby tourists to Israel can travel into Jordan to spend their money to purchase Jordanian goods & services to boost Jordan's economy. If there is to be any hope for a lasting peace between Israel & the Palestinians, let Jordan play a major role.
