4. Are you sure? This article claims Jordan is rejecting Netanyahu.
Jordan: East Jerusalem cannot be part of Israel's capital

The Jordanian government on Monday rejected Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's claim that Jerusalem would remain the undivided capital of Israel and that the Jewish state has a free hand to set up settlements throughout the West Bank.

"The West Bank, including East Jerusalem, are occupied territories according to several resolutions issued by the United Nations," Minister of State for Media Affairs and Communication Nabil Sharif was quoted as saying by the official Petra news agency.

"In particular, the UN Security Council resolution 242 of 1967 and resolutions 476 and 478 of 1980 consider Israel's annexation of East Jerusalem null and void and call on Israel to end its occupation of East Jerusalem."

He said that remarks made Sunday by the Israeli government about Jerusalem were nothing more than "fallacies that negate the well- established legal and political realities" and place obstacles "in the path of peace and US efforts that seek to establish peace through the realization of the two-state vision."
