JORDAN A PRICELESS ASSET - Op-ed: Should Jordan become Palestine, Iran’s forces will be advancing to our doorstep

Eitan Haber , written October 26, posted December 14, 2011

It appears that across Israel, from Mount Hermon to Eilat’s shores, there was not even one person last week who remembered the 17th anniversary of the peace treaty with the Hashemite Kingdom, Jordan, which was marked on October 26th.

Our peace with Jordan did not enjoy the good PR bestowed upon the Oslo Accord in its early phases, and we seem to take it for granted. The Jordanians, for example, did not take part in the Yom Kippur War, and when was the last terrorist infiltration from Jordan? The fact is that the Israeli side of the border with Jordan is currently guarded by very few soldiers.
However, thousands of miles away from here, in the far off America, President Barack Obama recently declared his intention to withdraw US troops from Iraq within a short period of time. We could have muttered that this issue is of no concern to us, had Washington’s decision not pertained to the not-too-distant Baghdad, and mostly to the lives of each and every one of us.
