Jordan king warns Israel against Jerusalem ‘provocation’

Amman (AFP) – Jordan’s king warned Israel on Monday that any further “provocation” in Jerusalem where Israeli police have clashed with Muslims at Al-Aqsa mosque would damage ties between the two countries.

“Any more provocation in Jerusalem will affect the relationship between Jordan and Israel” which have a 1994 peace accord, said King Abdullah II following a second day of clashes at the flashpoint holy site in annexed east Jerusalem.

“Jordan will not have a choice but to take actions, unfortunately,” he told journalists in English after talks with visiting British Prime Minister David Cameron.

    He still has to take “actions” against ISIS, but now he’s threatening “actions” against Israel? Laughable.

    The plucky little king best watch his own ass.

    This is a country that will absolutely require Israel’s help when ISIS knocks on it’s door in the coming months. This little toad-king best mind his manners if he wants himself and his cowardly little country to survive.

    We need to launch him into outer space!

    Sorry, but the provocation is always the other way around with Arabs/Muslims.

    That picture reminds me of Judgment at Nuremberg.
    Odd, isn’t it?

    He’s throwing a bone to the pallis and muslim terrorist wanna-be’s in his own country. He saves face, the Israelis play-along and start a dialogue, and in the end there will be fewer mooselimb taquiya specialists on-site. Or maybe everybody gets lucky and a crane falls over?
