Jordan king calls at UN for two-state solution to Israeli-Palestinian conflict


Assessment: King Abdullah calls for creation of a Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as capital – says last Gaza-Israeli war underscores that the situation is unsustainable

In a pre-recorded speech to the United Nations General Assembly, Jordan’s King Abdullah II called on Wednesday to revive the option of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. 

“General security for both sides, indeed for the whole world, can only be ensured by a two-state solution,” he said.

And there it is. One state for Jewish people and one state for Arab people since 1922. Now if only supposedly educated world leaders could wrap their minds around that.
