Jordan’s Abdullah: Israel Imposing ‘Unthinkable Solution’ On Palestinians

Jordan’s King Abdullah II accuses Israel of trying to “impose an unthinkable solution” on Palestinians as hopes fade for a two-state solution backed by the international community.

Speaking to lawmakers at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France, he says Israel’s construction of settlements in the West Bank and “disregard of international law” could be summed up as “one state turning its back on its neighborhood, perpetuating divisions among peoples and faiths worldwide.”

The Jordanian monarch carries the hereditary title of “custodian” of holy Muslim and Christian sites in Jerusalem.
