King Abdullah II of Jordan disingenuously calls for a "two-state" solution, when that situation already exists today! Three/quarters of historic Palestine is currently occupied by the relatively recently invented state of Jordan. Creating another Palestinian state on the West Bank when a Palestinian state already exists on the Jordanian-Occupied East Bank would create a THIRD state to share this territory. King Abdullah II desperately wants to avoid becoming King Abdullah I. His great-grandfather - Abdullah I, after whom he is named - was assassinated by Palestinians for the horrible crime of dealing with "the Jews". The current monarch doesn't want to die the same way. On the other hand, Jordan much prefers a border with Israel than a border with "Palestine", which is sure to result in internal turmoil and eventually war. So he's choosing the easier route: blame everything on Israel instead of the Pal Authority. If only Abdullah II was as honorable as his father, King Hussein.
