An analyst says the United States is planning to make Jordan an alternative country for Palestinians by sending them to the country, Press TV reports.
“The West has some plans for Jordan to become the alternative country for the Palestinians, especially, of the West Bank,” Jamal Wakim, professor at the Lebanese International University in Beirut, told Press TV.
The analyst said the US envisages a certain solution for the Palestinians in Jordan at the expense of creating a state in Jordan that would host West Bank Palestinians.
“This is what the Americans have in mind for Jordan: either to call for a constitutional monarchy that will enlist some Islamist groups that are loyal to the United States into power and then this will be the first step towards implementing a solution where Palestinians would relinquish their right to return to Palestine and instead they will be integrated into Jordan as their alternative country,” he explained.
Wakim concluded that Washington gives Tel Aviv a great opportunity to “keep all the occupied territories.”
Israel’s 1948 occupation of Palestine, known as the Nakba Day or the day of the catastrophe displaced some 700,000 Palestinians, forcing them to flee to different countries.
Tel Aviv is unwilling to compromise on the right of return for Palestinian refugees of the 1948 war and their descendants.
Palestinians have long asserted that the refugees have a moral and legal right to return to the lands they were forced to abandon during the Israeli-Arab wars in 1948 and 1967.
