Palestinian political thinker Mudar Zahran makes some interesting observations:
1. That minus King Abdullah, Jordan is essentially an Palestinian State, and would be if the monarchy fails.
2. Abdullah's control of the country is far less effective than that of his father, so a grass roots regime change is possible.
3. The Palestinians are fed up with the morally bankrupt leadership of Hamas and the PA, and their political posturing.
4. That Pal-Arabs are treated better in Israel than in any Arab country, bar none.

Zahran's analysis is refreshingly honest. Jordan administered and paid for the administration of the west bank up until around 1990 and the legal system in that area is still largely Jordanian. Neither Israel nor the PA have altered that. A reunification of much of the west bank with Jordan is still a reasonable option in order to create a viable independent Palestinian state. Even if the King remains, his wife Rania is a Palestinian and so the children (and next heir to the throne) would be as well.
