AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — Jordan's King Abdullah II, one of Israel's few remaining close allies in the Muslim world, said in remarks obtained Monday that the uprisings sweeping Arab nations have put the Jewish state in a difficult position. He also hotly rejected the notion that his country should take in Palestinians as a substitute for the creation of a state for them.

Abdullah told a closed meeting of Jordanian intellectuals and academics that Jordan and the Palestinians were now in a stronger position than Israel, whose current government fears growing isolation as a result of the Middle East's transformative changes in the Arab Spring.

"Jordan and the future of Palestine are stronger than Israel. It is the Israelis who are worried today," Abdullah told the audience late Sunday. A transcript of his comments was obtained from the Royal Palace on Monday.

A significant portion of Jordan's population has never been enthusiastic about the country's 1994 peace treaty with Israel. Anger with Israel is running high in Jordan for a number of reasons. In particular, Netanyahu's hard-line government is deeply distrusted in Jordan, and many Jordanians blame it for the failure of Palestinian-Israeli peace talks to get off the ground two years ago.

Since Jordan constitutes 80% of Mandate Palestine, when will the Hashemite trash running that shithole stop occupying the land and move back to Arabia where they came from?
