(Post post pre-post postscript) My apologies to Professor Alderman in respect to the struck out part of this post (see replies for the apology)
Where “Facts are Sacred” the Ziofied ‘facts’ remain, polluting the discourse! Factual counter argument, has been purged.
“stell: There was no such country as “Jordan” – and no such “people” as “Jordanians” – until well after WW1. The land we now call Jordan originally comprised about three-quarters of the total land mass of Mandate Palestine. The British decreed that Mandate Palestine east of the Jordan river should be reserved exclusively for Arabs (including, of course, Palestinian Arabs) and be prohibited to the Jews. This was of course agreed to by the Arabs.
KrustytheClown asks me two questions:
1) Do you believe that the only ‘Palestinian state’ is in Jordan? Answer No.
2) Do you believe that the occupied West Bank belongs only to the Jewish people? Answer No.
BUT WHAT IS THIS PROFESSOR ALDERMAN ?

“…It must be remembered that the Palestinians already have one state of their own – Jordan, the territory of which was part of the original Mandate given to the UK by the League of Nations.”
Have you no shame? Have you no history books? On 25 May 1923 , the Emirate of Transjordan (Arabic: ????? ??? ?????? ?Imarat Sharq al-?Urdun ) was proclaimed an independent state. It’s citizens were known as Jordanian. TransJordan became a sovereign state in 1946. It’s citizens were known as Jordanian. When the name was changed to Jordan , it’s citizens were known as Jordanian
Q: How many Israelis were there before 1948?
