Report: Jordan vetoes Israeli request to allow Jewish prayer on Temple Mount.
The top Jordanian government official responsible for the custodianship of religious holy sites in Jerusalem is quoted in local press on Tuesday as saying that he is “adamantly opposed” to any Jewish worship atop the Temple Mount.
Abd Al-Nasser Nassar, who serves as Amman’s top legal adviser for Islamic and Christian property in Jerusalem, is quoted as telling the Jordanian daily al-Rad that his government rejected an Israeli request to allow for Jews to pray in a small, designated area atop the site.
In the peace treaty signed between the two governments nearly 20 years ago, Israel acknowledged the Hashemite Kingdom’s “special role” in the custodianship of the holy sites in Jerusalem. In any final-status arrangement, the Israeli government pledged to “give high priority to the Jordanian historic role” when weighing any deal.

The Israeli-Jordanian peace agreement was signed in 1994. Israel agreed that Jordan should have a custodian responsibility over “holy sites” in Jerusalem.
This is a strange agreement, since the Kingdom of Jordan have no presence in Jerusalem, and do not reclaim East Jerusalem. The Kingdom has rather exported her rights, based on an “historic role” to the PLO.
I call out to the Lord, and he answers me from his holy mountain
But the PLO, who was formed in 1964, do not have any historic rights to pay in Jerusalem. The Islamic terror organization was formed to delete the state of Israel, not to secure religions freedom in the capital of Israel.
So of the Jordanians wants to have a role to play, they must admit that the Arab Palestinian have no role to play. Since they have been rejected citizenship in the Kingdom of Jordan. You can simply not have it both ways,
