    vh: "JORDAN GAVE UP ANY CLAIM IN 1995 THAT IS THE END OF THE MATTER !" Jordan's "claim" to the West Bank was always without merit. Therefore Jordan's 1993 decision to drop that claim was purely declaratory i.e. it can in no way change the legality of any Israeli counter-claim. Put another way: the Israeli claim is (and always has been) as meritless as Jordan's, and nothing that Jordan says or does can "improve" the legal status of that Israeli claim. Look at it this way: Two thieves argue over ill-gotten gains, and then one thieve throws the stolen goods down and storms off the scene. Q: Does that change the last remaining thief from "a thief" into "the rightful owner" of those goods? A: Nope. He remains "a thief", and those goods remain "stolen goods".
