'Jordan is Palestine' conference in Jerusalem

A conference to promote the idea that Jordan is the proper place for a Palestinian state is slated to take place next month in Jerusalem.

The only description I can find of the conference is in its GoFundMe page, which doubles as a way to purchase tickets for the event at the Begin Heritage Center.

The speakers' list is certainly interesting:

'Jordan is Palestine' conference in Jerusalem

Personally, I always looked at this idea as wonderful in theory and utterly unrealistic. The opposition to the idea is as near as absolute as it possible in the Arab world and no one in the West takes it at all seriously.

The fact that the video for the conference uses the Hatikva as it's soundtrack indicates that despite the presence of some anti-Jordanian Arabs on the panel, this is a Zionist initiative through and through.

If the initiative is to have any chance of success the organizers need to truly make a convincing grassroots case to the Arabs, not to the Zionists. Unfortunately, this conference itself - like the video - appears to be amateurish and not well thought out as to strategy. The domain name of the International Jewish-Muslim Dialogue Center that is behind this does not even have a webpage set up.

All successful revolutions start with what sounds like a bizarre idea at first. I wish these guys luck. But so far I've not seen anything that indicates a decent strategy on how to advance the plan. At this moment it looks to be as successful as a plan to pay hundreds of thousands of West Bank Palestinians to move to South America that I saw years ago.

There is one guaranteed outcome, though: Jordanian media will notice this conference and they will go insane in their reporting against it. Jordan's government might even issue a statement. Which will definitely be fun to watch.

With any luck, the crazed Jordanian reaction will get the idea some publicity.
