Islamic Movement in Jordan warns of "Jordanian option" idea raised by McCain
Islamic Movement in Jordan warns of "Jordanian option" idea raised by McCain
[ 18/06/2008 - 10:45 AM ]

AMMAN, (PIC)-- The Islamic Movement in Jordan warned of the gravity of what was stated by John McCain, the republican candidate for the US presidential elections, about adopting the Jordanian option to get rid of the burden placed by the Palestinian cause on the public policy of his country in the Middle East.

An advisor to McCain said that the latter adopts a strategy to resolve the conflict in the Middle East based on the Jordanian option which states that Jordan is the natural home for millions of Palestinians and the best solution to the issue of the Palestinian refugees.

Irheel Gharaibah, the secretary-general of the Islamic action front party in Jordan, underlined that such statements reflect a very serious juncture in the American official discourse and an inauguration of a new stage calling for disengaging from any commitments to international laws regarding the Palestinian land and refugees.

Gharaibah called on those preoccupied with reaching frivolous settlements with Israel to read well the Zio-American vision rather than wagering on the American positions towards the Palestinian cause and the entire Arab issues.

He noted that the Islamic Movement had warned on more than one occasion of Zio-American statements adopting the Jordanian option and called on the Arab and Islamic governments to sever relations with Israel and to re-consider their subservience to the US policy.

The Jordanian leader called on his country to re-evaluate its foreign policy so as to restore its balance away from the hubs of the American policy and to pave the way for a unified Arab stance against the Zio-American schemes aimed to liquidate the Palestinian cause.
