Comments like yours reflect the view that Israel is promoting. Jordan is really Palestinian, so why establish another Palestinian state if there is already one? Other than the fact that it is not true. The last census revealed that 55% of the population were native-born Jordanians with no ties to the Palestinian territories. Shut your pie-hole about Jihad and go back to work. Jordan's nuclear energy would endanger nobody, but it will prevent the people of Jordan from going hungry or dying from thirst by powering desalination plants. This isn't some military scheme. It's about survival. The most basic kind of survival. Securing food, water and shelter for the people of Jordan is not an issue to be debated.
