    from the border which is slightly off but I'll give him credit.  He later said the West Bank would share borders with Syria, Jordan and Israel which isn't true.  It's only Jordan and Israel.

    He also basically said that Jordan would allow Iran to funnel missiles and weapons through their country.  So is he saying all Muslims are alike?  Perhaps the King of Jordan would take issue with that mindset.  Jordan would not want another Israeli war for a few reasons.  For one, they don't want the refugee issues they had during the Iraq war.  Another would be that monarchs/dictators all over the regions are having trouble keeping power against a wave of democracy.  The King of Jordan probably wants to keep his seat so he really doesn't want an uprising in his own country because he's not taking action against Israel.  The final reason is Jordan is down wind (maybe not exactly) from Israel so particularly any sort of nuclear attack would have environmental repercussions for their own nation.

    Not really a foreign policy person just my own personal take.
