"How will the 20% Hashemite-Jordanian minority maintain rule over the 80% Palestinian after devolving a portion the controlled area to peoples who are of the 80%?" Uh?

After Israel was split off, what remained was a non-state entity of Palestine. The UN did not implement corpus separatum and Israel did not declare sovereignty over any of Jerusalem. The status of the non-state entity of Palestine did not change. It remains today, the non-state entity of Palestine. "Jordan relinquished any and all claim in 1988 to Arafat.
