King of Jordan warns Israel: peace-treaty or a war within a year

The King of Jordan has warned there will be war in the Middle East in a year if the peace process doesn't re-start. King Abdullah II said he was proposing a '57-state solution' where every country in the Muslim world would recognise Israel in exchange for peace and a Palestinian state.

'We are offering a third of the world to meet them with open arms,' said the King. 'The future is not the Jordan river or the Golan Heights or the Sinai, the future is Morocco in the Atlantic and Indonesia in the Pacific. That is the prize.'

But the King said if the new Israel government, which refuses to acknowledge a Palestinian state, didn't agree to peace terms war would begin. King Abdullah told The Times: 'If we delay our peace negotiations, then there is going to be another conflict between Arabs or Muslims and Israel in the next 12-18 months.' The King said the new US Obama administration was working on a comprehensive peace plan for the Middle East. MORE HERE
