Palestinian State in Jordan 'Inevitable'
Jordanian-Palestinian activist Mudar Zahran is not a man who minces his words. His outspokenness against the Jordanian regime has made him forced him to seek asylum in the UK.
Zahran did not pull any punches Sunday afternoon, speaking at a conference entitled "Two States for Two People, on Two Sides of the Jordan River." Deriding the Jordanian ruling elite as "Armani-wearing, English-speaking autocrats" he called on all parties to consider a radically different track to the current peace initiatives based off of a "Two State Solution".
