On Jordan, The Kingdom Of

An opinion:

...the Hashemites should never have become the so-called “sovereign” of Jordan. That was a dirty British trick initiated by Churchill and the Colonial Office he headed in 1921-1922, that was absolutely prohibited under the very terms of the article upon which this trick was based – i.e., under Article 25 of the Mandate for Palestine, as well as under Article 5; both articles forbade a permanent territorial partition of the country as well as granting sovereignty to a foreign Power over an integral part of Palestine.
