How much longer will Israel be allowed to occupy?

Jordan’s King Abdullah isn’t exactly the finest example of a human rights defender – yes, it’s yet another US-backed dictatorshipbut these comments in Washington about Israel are spot-on:

“Israel now has to make its choice,” the king said in a speech in Washington.

The Jewish state can “integrate into the region … or to remain fortress Israel, isolated, holding itself and the entire region hostage to continued confrontation.”

For decades it’s made the clear decision to continue conflict with the Palestinians.

Will it truly change?
