    Why is it twisted logic, its not a politically correct idea to talk about but its logical and could work. Jordan is paid to give all palestinians citizenship so they have a ready made state. Israel will return to Jordan a small percentage of Judea & Samaria and annex the rest and the international community will recognize that land as being part of Israel and Jordanian citizens living in Israel will be granted residency visa so they can live in their homes but they will be Jordanians and have no democratic rights in Israel. The two state idea is political but it will never be viable once the independence parties are over and they have to deal with real issues. 22% of mandate Palestine ( 5000km ) in 2 parts with no recourses and a growing population will be viable economically, tiny Israel would be nearly 4 times the size of the palestinian state and it would still have problems. How long before the palestinians come back saying we were cheated we demand more land? A binational Israel will never work so politically correct or not a palestinian state in huge Jordan with its developed economy is the most practical option if we are thinking about the wellbeing of ORDINARY people and take the political ideals out of it. If Rabin had talked about this as a solution rather than the 2 state one it could have been done with or without the PLO permission, the PLO would have been wiped out and the ordinary people would get on with life as Jordanians.
