Sir, for His Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan and for the international community of states, Al-Quds (East Jerusalem) is occupied territory since June 1967 and as outlined in the peace treaty with between Jordan and Israel, Jordan has a special responsibility regarding the Holy Places in East Jerusalem. May be the President of Medinat Israel Mr. S. Peres invites Bibi for a 5 o'clock tea to inform him of what would be appropriate to do or not to do in this part of occupied Arab-Palestine. If Jordan would expel the Israeli envoy, well, there would be headlines all over the globe, however the extreme right wing FM Lieberman would not be affected, Mr. Netanyahu would make a short statement in the Knesset indicating there is a misunderstanding, and President Peres would send a diplomatic letter to the King that Jordan's interests in the Holy district will be considered, (however the occupation continues).
