One-Third of Jordanian MPs Want to Cancel Peace Treaty with Israel

Moshe Feiglin unwittingly has brought out of the woodwork anti-Israel legislators from “peace partner” Jordan.
Moshe Feiglin - the man who aggravated Jordanian legislators to the point that they invented terms of the peace treaty with Israel.

Moshe Feiglin - the man who aggravated Jordanian legislators to the point that they invented terms of the peace treaty with Israel.

The Lower House of the Jordanian parliament voted Wednesday to expel the Israeli ambassador from the country as a protest to the Knesset’s having the audacity to debate the status of the Temple Mount.

In addition, 47 of the 150 legislators in the House signed a resolution that the peace treaty with Israel should be torn up and thrown away.

“The motion came in response to Israel’s actions in Jerusalem and to the Knesset debate of a law that seeks to impose Israel’s sovereignty over al-Aqsa,” the Al-Rai newspaper quoted MPs as saying in the motion.

“Israel’s actions clearly violate the peace treaty… it is aggression against Jordanian custodianship,” the motion said.

Certainly, if Israel violates the peace treaty, harsh action is warrant. Flagrantly inciting rage by even discussing the idea of a Jew praying on the Temple Mount, home of the Al Aqsa mosque, is hard evidence for condemning Israel from the depths of the Quran.

So let’s take a look at the peace treaty that Israel has so disgustingly violated.

The reference to the Temple Mount is implied in Article 9, entitled “Places of Historical and Religious Significance and Interfaith Relations.

The first clause states, “Each Party will provide freedom of access to places of religious and historical significance.” That kind of puts a giant hole in the Jordanian legislators claim that Israel has violated the peace treaty. Of course, they could always fall back on the Arab world’s fattest lie that has made the imams look even more ridiculous – that the Jewish Holy Temples never existed, that the Bible is a Zionist work of fiction and that the Western Wall’s only religious significance is that Mohammed hitched has horse there, without even paying for the parking spot.

The next clause states, “In this regard, in accordance with the Washington Declaration, Israel respects the present special role of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in Muslim Holy shrines in Jerusalem. When negotiations on the permanent status will take place, Israel will give high priority to the Jordanian historic role in these shrines.”

So far, the term “permanent status” can be ascribed only to peace talks. They have become such a fixture for diplomats and  journalists that they are going to be sorry if  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry ever gives up. He probably won’t, because then he would not have anything to keep him busy. Syria, Iran, Egypt, Sudan, China – they are small potatoes for him. He can wrap up those problems in a day or two.

Clause number 3 states, “The Parties will act together to promote interfaith relations among the three monotheistic religions, with the aim of working towards religious understanding, moral commitment, freedom of religious worship, and tolerance and peace.”

Lovely.

The Jordanian parliament thinks that the Knesset debate, initiated by Knesset Member Moshe Feiglin, should not be about freedom of religious worship. It thinks that “working towards…peace” means expelling the Israeli ambassador. One third of them think peace means breaking the peace treaty, and all of this because the Knesset talked about Jews praying on the Temple Mount.

The truth is that Jews prayed on the Temple Mount way back when, not only 2,000 years ago but also 45 years ago. No one said “boo” because the Arabs and Jews were at peace. The Arabs had been freed from the rule of Jordan, an occupation that never was authorized by the United Nations. They were neglected as second-class citizens, and Arab villages in Judea and Samaria were left to eat the crumbs that Amman left behind.

After the Six-Day War, The Arabs – pardon the expression – never had it so good. Israel opened up all holy sites to all religions, Israelis traveled and shopped freely in Judea and Samaria, and tourism flourished.

  1. Doesn't this mean that, even when Jews assert a right to daven on Har HaBayit (as I'm sure they call it in Amman), 2/3 of the Jordanian Legislature (whatever THAT is) still thinks they should be at peace with Israel? Isn't that good news?

  2. The State of Israel must rebuild the Temple of God, because it is written in the Torah, in Exodus 25:8, that God commanded Israel to make for Him a sanctuary.
    The State of Israel must forbid the practice of Islam in the Land of Israel, because it is written in the Torah, in Exodus 22:19, that God commanded that, if a human being sacrifices to other god, he be condemned to death, and the Muslims sacrifice to other god, because their god, in the Quran, said words that contradict the words that the true God had said before, that are written in the Tanakh. For example: In the Quran, the false prophet Muhammad said that his false god said that the holy day is the sixth day of the week (Quran 62:9), when the true God had said before, in Exodus 20:8-11, that the holy day is the seventh day of the week.
    The State of Israel and all the Jews must explain to the Muslims that Muhammad was a false prophet, because he spoke words which contradict the words which God had spoken before, which are written in the Tanakh. For example, the false prophet Muhammad said that it is allowed to eat the camel (Quran 22:36), when God had said before, in Leviticus 11:4, that it is forbidden to eat the camel. Then, the Muslims will convert to Judaism, and there will be peace in Israel.

    Maybe its time to make the same prayers you did during the 6 day war.

  4. Kirill Tuchin says:

    Good idea. Cancel the treaty. But also cancel water supply that comes with it. Let them drink their own poison.

  5. Let God lead you Israel. See the example of President Museveni of Uganda. They have started on him. Israel, Israel, Israel focus on your Almighty God who will give you the true answer!!!

  6. Mary Hale says:

    the Jordanian MP's will be wise to remember who's the bigger fighter..and who's got the biggest guns,,and who's got the Bigger God..If God be for Israel, who can be against it..
