    In President Clinton's bridging proposal for a fundamental agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, there is a big question mark surrounding one of Israel's neighbors: Jordan. What kind of future does the United States foresee for the Hashemite Kingdom and its prospects for coexistence with a Palestinian state? What has awakened this question is the debate over the fate of the Jordan Valley: Who will control it and what will relations look like between Palestine and Jordan?.In his bridging proposal, Clinton states that Israel must withdraw from the Jordan Valley within 36 months. Over the next 36 months, an IDF force will remain there, under the aegis of an international force stationed in the region. Clinton added that if security improves, Israel will be able to pull back more quickly. Nothing is said about what will happen if the situation deteriorates. If intelligence reports from Amman are correct, the Jordanians are very concerned about Clinton's idea of transferring the Jordan Valley to the Palestinians and moving the IDF out as soon as possible. This will open a broad border between Jordan and the emerging Palestinian state, thereby exposing Jordan to political and demographic pressure, as well as subversive activity. It is doubtful that the Americans have paid sufficient heed to the implications of such a move.
