Jordan King Abdullah II has received Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Amman to discuss several issues of mutual interest.

Netanyahu’s office issued a statement on Monday saying that ” Prime Minister Netanyahu reiterated Israel’s commitment to maintaining the status quo at the holy sites in Jerusalem”.

Meanwhile, Jordan’s Petra News Agency quoted King Abdulla II as saying that ” Jerusalem is as important for Muslims and Christians is as it is for Jews and that the issue of the holy city must be settled within final status agreements on the basis of a two-state solution”.

The Hashemite Kingdom of  Jordan acts as the official custodian of the Muslim holy sites in Jerusalem.

Netanyahu’s quick visit to the Jordanian capital comes prior to the official visit by Jason Greenblatt, the US President Donald Trump’s special envoy to the Middle East peace process, and Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, to the region.

Time for the King to have a little personal one on one bend-over time. He’s getting his instruction from Bibi on what the plan is when Greenblatt gets there. Jordan is between a rock and a hard ****, owned by US/KSA/Israel. As the protector of Muslim holy sites, they were the perfect pick, completely powerless…dependent on outside support.

Jordan has been purchased from UK by Hachemite family in 1922.
Actually, UK sold it twice since they also sold it to the Rothschilds’ in 1917…
Jerusalem’s Temple Mount has never been a Muslim site while the holiest of all Muslim sites is in Jordan and mostly forgotten, it’s Becca (Petra/al-Batra) since Petra is the real Mecca.

Be ware , king Abdullah. Israel can NOT be trusted. By no means .
Israel has deliberately sniped civilians of Palestine.
After the expulsion of 800,000 Palestinians in 1948, Israel’s first prime minister, David Ben Gurion, said : “The old will die and the young will forget.” —

In fact, Jerusalem is not a holy place for Muslims, the holy place is in Jordan. ALL early mosques were turned in the same direction : Petra, wich is called Becca in Quran… That’s where the 1st Ka’aba was built. About a century later, the Black Stone was moved to Mecca by ibn Zubayr when he claimed to be the caliph in his revolt against the Ummeyads who ruled on Damascus. While ibn Zubayr was killed when the Ummeyads stormed Petra, the 2nd Islamic Civil War ended with Abassids (ibn Zubayr allies in Baghdad) victory, then, as all you need… Read more »

AFAIK You are right, the Arabs never prayed towards Jerusalem but to Becca/Petra – so Jerusalem was never holy to them. But the Old city of Jerusalem is not holy to the Jews either, since the Jewish Temple was in King David’s city. You need running water for a Jewish temple. That is not available near the Wailing Wall. The San Remo treaty is irrelevant to the Golan since that was always settled by Druze. They are mountain dwellers genetically closer related to the Ashkenasi Jews than to any other Near Eastern group. But the Druze speak Arabian and are… Read more »

“AFAIK You are right, the Arabs never prayed towards Jerusalem but to Becca/Petra – so Jerusalem was never holy to them.” => Absolutely! The Dome of the Rock’ qibla points onto Petra, so does the Ummeyad mosque in Damascus and all mosques until ibn-Zubayr transferred the Black-Stone to Mecca. Muhammad, if he existed, was a Nabatean from Petra, not a Meccan. Actually, Mecca wasn’t even a city b4 around 800AD. The real Mecca told about in Quran is Petra. How amusing that the real Masjid al-Haram is filled with Kâfir tourists while the bogus holy city is out of limits…… Read more »
