Netanyahu Makes Surprise Visit to Jordan for Secret Talks

Jordan might be the X factor in Kerry’s foolsmanship in the Middle East.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu flew to Jordan Thursday morning for secret talks with Jordanian King Abdullah “on developments related to Palestinian-Israeli peace negotiations under the auspices of the United State,” the kingdom’s official Petra News Agency reported.

The key part of the two-paragraph statement was its last seven words in the following sentence:

“The King’s meeting with the Israeli leader comes after his latest separate meetings with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry…to achieve tangible progress that meets the aspirations of the Palestinian people protecting at the same time Jordan’s interests.“

“Protecting Jordan’s interests” is something that is overlooked in the giant media microscope that is focused on Jerusalem and Ramallah.

There are an estimate 2.5-3 million Palestinians in Jordan, out of a total population of barely 7 million. Making up nearly 50 percent of the country, the Palestinians are a big time bomb but also are a critical part of the country’s work force.

Even more than Israel, Jordan is better off with a powerless and useless Palestinian Authority.

Jordan has a healthy trade with Israel. Giving the Jordan Valley to Mahmoud Abbas, God forbid, could be catastrophic for Amman, politically, economically and militarily.

The king prefers Israeli forces on the border than a Palestinian Authority army standing on the banks of the Jordan River.

If King Abdullah were totally belligerent to Israel’s needs, Prime Minister Netanyahu would not have wasted time bringing up Israel’s Biblical ties with Beit El in Samaria.

Army Radio reported that the Prime Minister reminded the king that the Biblical Yaakov built an altar there after dreaming that angels were descending and descending from a ladder from heaven.

Beit El happens just happens to be located a stone’s throw, pardon the expression, from Ramallah, and the last thing  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry needs is the idea that Israel maintain a Jewish presence next door to Abbas’ offices.

Since Netanyahu reportedly brought out the Bible, he should have opened the New Testament so that King Abdullah could see for himself that despite Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon comments about Kerry, it is not written anywhere, not even in hidden clues, that Kerry is the Messiah.

There is no doubt that King Abdullah agrees.

  1. Al Goltzman says:

    This is the best news I have seen recently about the Mideast and exhibits a degree of light to what I have seen as a dismal and unsolvable coexistence between Jews and Arabs

  2. I think we can only hope and pray that the peace process is negotiated and pressed forward in a manner that is fair and balanced for all concerned parties.

  3. If the King of Jordan opened up the New Testament, he might find that in the book of Revelations, the King of Jordan is supposed to give protection to Jewish refugees when the sh*t hits the fans. Don't know how much of that playbook should be taken seriously though….the part about the water turning into blood is something the US should pay attention to though, as we go about poisoning every source of fresh-water we can from the great lakes to the wells of the east and mid-east. We've already made every fish in the oceans a source of mercury poisoning.

  4. Roasted Locust, for your information the Bible is not a play book nor is the God of the Bible your play mate. Be very careful because you can regret your views for all eternity.

  5. Elsabe du Plooy, for somebody who reads the Bible, your inability to understand the use of a metaphor is disturbing. A playbook is a notebook written by a coach so every player will know how to conduct themselves on the field. How is the Bible not a playbook for Christians? And who said G-d is anybody's playmate? If anything, He's the Referee who created the field and the rules of the game as well as the players. I assume you believe everything in the Bible to be 100% truth, but how did you come to the conclusion that your playbook is the one that will win the game? I was merely stating that I have not reached the same conclusion that I understand everything….why are you threatening me with eternal damnation just for admitting that I don't know everything? Who made you the Ref?

  6. This land has been given to Israel forever by God. It is completely absurd to witness the whole world trying to give it away. When a peace like that IS made it won’t last as it won’t be a true peace and try’s to steal God’s land. The US desire to collaborate with Israel to verify that Iran is living up to it’s nuclear agreements would be the equivalent of Israel going along with the west’s fantasy that Iran is much farther behind than it is in it’s nuclear pursuits. The US proposal to patrol the west bank is also not a solid Idea as no one but the US will respect it; making the US a combatant rather than a peace broker. I believe that these types of decisions are likely going to lead to the war spoken of in Isaiah 17 or possibly another conflict, and a one world government will be set up eventually due in part to the demand for peace and economic concerns after it’s finish. An agreement with Israel and the Arabs at some point will be made and will start the 7 year tribulation period. Three 1/2 years into the tribulation period Russia and an Iranian lead Muslim confederacy will invade Israel and reach down to Egypt but will be defeated by the west. China in recent years has become more determined to set up a hegemony of sorts in Asia and the Pacific. Now they have expanded their “air defense identification zone” to enforce their claims on the Islands they “currently” say are theirs. Rev 9:16 and Rev 16:12 states that the nations of the east will invade and have an army of 200 million men. The forces of the west under the anti-Christ will then fight against the kings of the east in the valley of Armageddon. China looks now to be the leader of that eastern coalition. I wrote a small 6 or 7 page book that talks about what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next

  7. The Pals not only want whole Israeli territory, also Jordan, Lebanon, Sinai, part or whole Syria and Saudi Arabia, this is their dream, the best way this will not happening is Israel has to get together with some arab countries, is not Israel the big problem in Midle East, are the Palestinian, no Arab country like the Pals.

It was a miracle no one was injured or burned to death.

Israeli’s most powerful weapon of defense is good intelligence.
