OCCUPIED JERUSALEM -- The Hebrew radio on Monday revealed that the Israeli Knesset will discuss soon a draft law introduced by member of the Zionist national union party Aryeh Eldad calling for considering Jordan the Palestinian state.
The radio quoted Eldad as saying that this law would ensure Israel’s security and meet the international community’s calls for giving the Palestinians a state.
The Zionist national union party, which is considered one of the most ultra-extremist Israeli parties, had distributed in December 2002 leaflets among Palestinian passengers traveling across Al-Karama bridge on the Jordanian borders urging them to stay in Jordan as their existing state in which they could live away from the occupation.
The leaflet, written in Arabic and Hebrew, read: “We wish you a safe trip to the existing Palestinian state where the Palestinians constitute 75 percent of its population. You have taken the right step when you decided to join your brothers; in your new state, you will not suffer from the occupation, and you will be able to nominate yourselves and elect your own parliament…As part of a regional plan, your economy, agricultural, infrastructure and waters will be developed with international assistance.”
In another context, Yemeni MP Abdullah Khairan on Sunday stated that the Arab peace initiative did not receive any positive response from the Israeli occupation, but rather it responded with more killings and violations against the Palestinians.
During the Palestinian cultural days held in Sana’a in the framework of the Yemeni popular campaign to celebrate Jerusalem as the capital of Arab culture for 2009, MP Khairan strongly denounced some Arab leaders for receiving Israeli officials in their countries while Gaza still suffers from the repercussions of the unjust Israeli war.
The Yemeni lawmaker stressed that the Palestinian right of return is a legitimate right guaranteed by all international conventions and laws, calling on Muslims to help the Palestinians to return to their usurped land by all means possible.
