Subject: RE: BS: Well,well. Mid East Cease Fire
A big part of the reason that King Abdullah (The current one's great grandfather, they skip Talal when naming them) was assasinated by Palestinians because he was close to signing peace with Israel.
The so-called betrayal, is Black September, when the Jordanian army ruthlessly went against Arafat and the PLO, who were basically trying to take the country over. The PLO ended up in Lebanon, because none of the other countries wanted them (and quite rightly).
