    "Why must Jordan be judenrein?" (S. Holmes) You are inventing things: No one has ever said, nor even suggested that Jordan must be 'judenrein'. It's only in your imagination. No one knows for sure if there are Jews living in Jordan, or not. What everybody knows, and this by far more important, is that this country is now for a long time, living in peaceful coexistence alongside with Israel. And what is absolutely doubtless, is that Jordan is, like Israel, an independent state, and thus, entitled, like Israel is, to freely decide who should or should not be allowed to live on its sovereign territory. "Why can't Jews live in historic Jewish sites like Hebron, Bethlehem and East Jerusalem?" (S. Holmes) Simply because all these places, even if historic Jewish sites, have still to be recognized by the international community as being part of the Israeli sovereign territory. Also because only fools believe that Israel can and should be the only country on this planet, to freely decide all by itself what is, and what is not, its sovereign territory.
