Jordanian Monarch Goes the Falsification Route

Jordan's King Abdullah II said on Thursday:-

"We have warned repeatedly that Israel is playing with fire, and Jordan rejects and condemns all measures aimed at changing the identity of Jerusalem and the displacement of its Christian and Muslim Arab population,"

Sir, it was your great-grandfather and father (sorry, your grandfather was institutionalized so he couldn't really affect public political policy) who attempted and almost succeeded in changing the identity of Jerusalem.

Prohibiting Jewish access to the Western Wall according to Article VIII of the 1949 Armistice Agreement, destroying Jewish graves on Mount of Olives, desecrating dozens of synagogues and shooting from the Old City ramparts at civilians - not to mention the ethnic cleansing of the Old City's Jewish Quarter in May 1948.
