Israel’s Foreign Minister and National Union Knesset Member Aryeh Eldad are having a difference of opinion about whether Jordan is Palestine. Leiberman argues that the “Jordan is Palestine” initiative violates Israel’s treaty with Jordan and is therefore illegal.

The question that is not being asked is whether the Treaty itself is illegal.
