MK Ariye Eldad (National Union) accused Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman of burying his head in the sand, responding to the foreign minister's claim that anyone who says "Jordan is Palestine" does damage to Israeli interests.

Lieberman should know, Eldad added, that "when the Arab Spring reaches Jordan, King Abdullah will run away like [former Libyan ruler Muammar] Gaddafi." If Israel doesn't prepare a plan based on that reality, Eldad said, it "will miss the biggest historic opportunity since Oslo to prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state east of the Jordan [River]."
