Jordan's King Abdullah II said Friday that Israel must choose between the mentality of "Israel the fortress" or "living in peace and security with its neighbors." Interviewed on state television before his departure for the United States, the king said the United States was the country most capable of influencing Israel. "It is time that the [US] employ this influence to prove its transparency to the people of the region, and that it is not biased," Abdullah said.
