King Abdullah II has called on Israelis and Palestinians to refrain from any action which undermines the chances for Middle East peace, and said Israel must treat the Jerusalem issue with sensitivity. "Jerusalem is considered a red line and Israel needs to understand this and not play with fire," Abdullah told Al-Hayat on Monday. Jordan's king gave his backing to beleaguered Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, describing him as a full partner in the peace process who represents the interests of his people. Abdullah told the London-based paper that a continuation of the status quo in the region would constitute sliding off into the abyss, and said he feared for the state of the Palestinians and the entire region if there was no progress soon. He also warned against an Israeli attack on Iran, saying the repercussions for such action would likely be catastrophic.
