His Majesty King Abdullah on Sunday called on the world community to “reach a consensus” on immediate steps that should be taken to salvage the Middle East peace process.
During a meeting with French Foreign Minister Michele Alliot-Marie, His Majesty said there is not much time left to waste more opportunities to make peace in the region. Unless the peace process moves forward, the region and the world will suffer more tension and conflict, the King told the French top diplomat.
He underlined the role of France and the European Union (EU) in supporting the Middle East peace process, which, he said, should lead to the establishment of a Palestinian state, on Palestinian national soil, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
Ways to end the Middle East conflict and Jordanian ties with partner countries were also on the agenda of a meeting King Abdullah held yesterday with ambassadors of 20 countries.
During the meeting, His Majesty urged intensified efforts to overcome obstacles to the resumption of “serious and effective” direct talks between the Palestinians and Israelis.
The talks, he said, should resolve all final status issues on the basis of well-defined terms of reference to achieve security and stability in the region and work out a settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict on the basis of the two-state formula, the statement said.
The Monarch also called for bringing an end to all Israeli unilateral measures, including settlement construction, which aims at changing facts on the ground and constitutes an obstacle to peacemaking efforts, according to the statement.

It is no surprise that the Moslem King of Jordan would be opposed to Israeli Jews living in Judea and Samaria (known to most of the world as the “West Bank”) nor is it any mystery why he is encouraging the creation of a Palestinian State.
The population of his desert kingdom is over 60% Palestinian and he would very much like to have someplace to send them. His father tried to get rid of them several times, going back to the attempt Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat made to overthrow the government in the 1970 Black September incident.
But, like so many other people in many countries, the King of Jordan has made a fatal mistake and forgotten that the Children of Israel have been given that area as an eternal possession by God Himself.
Genesis 17: 8 says;
I will give to you and to your descendants after you, the land of your sojournings, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.
God keeps His side of bargains, even when human beings don’t. Even if the King of Jordan, and the UN, and the EU, and all the nations of the Earth want to give Judea and Samaria to the Palestinians to form a state there, the God who created this Universe and everything in it will not agree. He made a promise to the Jewish People through their father Abraham, and He cannot do otherwise than to keep it.
