(Worthy News) - While France is facing Israeli criticism for suggesting the deployment of international observers to the Temple Mount, WND has learned the Kingdom of Jordan is floating its own plan to consolidate power at the holy site, proposing non-uniformed Jordanian soldiers patrol the sensitive complex.
The Jordanian proposal was quietly made in recent days to Israeli and U.S. officials, according to diplomatic sources here. The Israeli government immediately rejected the possibility of Jordanian soldiers, uniformed or not, stationed inside the Jewish state.
The diplomatic sources said that last month a Jordanian general and other Jordanian military officers held a meeting with the Waqf, the Islamic custodians of the Temple Mount, to discuss the possibility of Jordanian deployment on the site. [ Source ]
