"Jordan is palestine" plan is gettins some attention

Here's something interesting:
(IsraelNN.com) Jordan is in an uproar over the revival of the "Jordanian option" - the thesis that Jordan is the true home to the "Palestinians." Reports that a top advisor to US Presidential candidate John McCain is promoting this idea have led to a flurry of press reports in the Arab media, as well as a denial from Jordan's King Abdullah himself.

Some officials in Israel and the United States, however, feel it's the only way to prevent the formation of a Palestinian state.

The King responded defensively to the option, declaring in an interview with a Lebanese newspaper last week, “This country was made to stay. Jordan is Jordan and Palestine is Palestine."

"Palestinian Homeland" = Jordan
However, he also added another sentence that has given observers pause, wondering if he meant something else.

"The Palestinian nation has the right to a state and independent identity on the areas of Palestine," said King Abdullah II. "The Palestinians will not accept any substitute for their homeland Palestine."

Though Arabs today call Israel "Palestine," MK Benny Elon (National Union) told IsraelNationalNews that in this case, "the words 'Palestinian homeland' can mean Jordan as well... Certainly Abdullah himself remembers that the original Palestine includes Jordan - but perhaps he assumes that everyone else does not."
The king would do well to consider that "palestine" was just another name for Israel originally coined by the Roman empire, after all. And that most Arabs living in Judea, for example, are descendants of Saudi Arabia, from which Jordan was originally part of. And that all those "palestinians" in focus here might be better off living under his rule in Jordan. They'd just have to exclude any true troublemakers, is all, which is quite possible to do by ways of immigration inspection, if needed. Then, everyone can be content.
