Israel's Foreign Ministry ordered to 'reassess' EU involvement with Palestinians after decision to label West Bank goods; 'decision is almost completely devoid of any real significance,' official says.23:15 29.11.15 | 25 comments
PAAM: "During the 67 Arab, Israeli wars, Israel conquered Jordan!" No, Jordan itself started to the east of the Jordan River, and the IDF never crossed it. Israel DEFEATED Jordan in 1967, she didn't CONQUER it. PAAM: "After the wars, Israel offered to return the West Bank & Gaza back to Jordan but the Jordanian govt. refused, as it would bring back the Palestinians!" Israel told the USA that it would return almost all of the WB with only minor straightening of the '49 lines. The USA pressed Jordan to vote for Res 242 upon that understanding, and Jordan was willing to take them at their word and voted "yes". Israel then turned around an "offered" Jordan a West Bank that excluded the Jordan Valley i.e. the Alon Plan in everything but name. Hussein was furious at being conned, and so he refused. The Americans were astounded, and shamed, and then did nothing. The Israelis just shrugged their shoulders and blamed the Arabs. As, I see, you continue to do.
