Arabs Use Oil Threat

Jordan?s Foreign Minister Marwan Muasher has told the Israeli Ambassador, David Dadonn, that ?if Israel pursues its actions against the Palestinians and does not immediately withdraw, Jordan will take measures.? He also asked the five permanent members of the UN Security Council to send an international military force to the Palestinian territories. Jordan signed a peace treaty with Israel in 1994.

A Jordanian Government official says that ?breaking off diplomatic ties is a measure that Jordan will only take if it is forced to do so, because a dialogue under the current circumstances is vital and only Jordan can undertake it.? Jordan could ask the Israeli ambassador to leave the country or suspend ties with Israel.

Morocco?s King Mohamed VI has also threatened to take unspecified measures against Israel unless it pulls its troops out of Ramallah.

Saddam called for an all-out Arab attack on Israel and said, ?It is a disgrace for the Arabs and the believers elsewhere not to participate along with their Palestinian brothers in thisbattle, which is essentially the battle of all Arabs and the battle of all believers. It is not the battle of the Palestinians alone??.
