    How dare the Jordania king criticize and threaten Israel over respect for Muslims on the Temple Mount. It's time for Israel to sit down with the Hashemite (from Arabia) king and have a frank talk with him about his grandfather and father, who violated the armistice agreement that recognized the right of Israeli Jews and all other Jews to visit their holy sites in Jerusalem. Israel should also call King Abdullah on "Jordan's role in Al-Aqsa Mosque" and "the significance Jerusalem had to the Hashemite Kingdom." Jordan invaded and illegally annexed Jerusalem and had no rights there at all. Their annexation of eastern Jerusalem was recognized only by Britain and Pakistan. It was illegal. Israel is overly nice and overly generous in allowing Jordan and role at all in any part of Jerusalem. Perhaps the Hashemite king should go back home to Arabia and give the Palestinians the country of which they are the majority population. His selfish need to be king denies the Palestinians a state.
