    Actually, Tity, you are wrong. Jordan, originally called Transjordan, was part of the original Palestine mandate. It was separated from the 'Jewish National Home' in 1922 in order to grant the Arabs autonomy and also to give a consolatation prize to the Hashemite monarchs who had been ousted from Syria by the French. However, it was still offically governed as part of the Palestine mandate. (Read, read history, re pedaki mou...leave aside your ideology). From that time onwards, and in modern Jordan, by law a Jew is not allowed to reside there or to purchase any land. That's the law. The same law exists in the 'Palestinian Authority', with the exception of the (non-Jewish) Samaritan sect in Nablus, and the anti-Israel Neturei Karta sect in Jerusalem. This is just to help you visualize the chances that Jews will be able to reside in a future 'Palestine'. Dear Tity, the great revolutionary and historian, I read something interesting...Did you know that the Sephardic Jews who came to Greece are more correctly called 'Ottoman Jews' and their presence in Greece historically is mostly a product of Turkish rule, and they served the Turks until the very end. The authentic Greek Jews were the 'Romaniotes' (and are now nearly extinct), the ones who defended the walls of Rhodes, Constantinople, and Salonika against the Ottoman conquests. They were culturally and linguistically Greek since the times of Alexander.
