    Bennett told the Norwegians that he looked forward to 'Jordanian involvement'. a.k.a either transfer of all Palestinians to Jordan, or extending Jordanian sovereignty to Areas A and B. It would be interesting to know what the Jordanians think about this. But the right wing's real ambitions do not stop there. They already spoke of a 'transfer in situ' of the Little Triangle to the (hypothetical) Palestinian state (now dismissed). But why so modest? Why not suggest that all Israeli Arabs -Palestinians- second class Israeli citizens that they are, become first class Jordanians. Without their land, of course. Ben Gurion did not finish the job of expulsion., as the historian Benny Morris stated; if 60% of the West Bank openly considered ripe for annexation, how long will it be before another right wing politician goes the whole way and proposes an Israel free of all Arabs, once and for all.?
