    There seems to be no shortage of Arab and Muslim capitals in the world so why do the Jews have to divide their one and only? It would seem to me that before partition and during the mandate that Britain received from the League of nations Britain handing the rights of the indigenous Arabs over to the Hashemite family from the Saudi peninsula. Amman is the capital of the so called "Palestinian" people and was so when Jordan annexed Jerusalem and the so called West Bank (Judea Samaria). If the Arabs thought of it as capital why is Amman the Palestinian people's capital? This is fitting that remains such in the future and room must be made to welcome the remaining Jordanian refugees that have been squatting illegally on Israeli land. Let us correct the error of 1921,1949 and 1967 that completed Israeli and Palestinian independence. Until Jordan is named Palestine there will be no peace, end the illegal Hashemite occupation of Jordan!
