Jordan: Israel playing with fire with east J'lem policy

AMMAN, Jordan — Jordan's King Abdullah II warned Israel on Thursday that it was "playing with fire" over its settlement policy and that the Jewish state must decide whether it wants peace or war.
The Jordanian monarch made the rare public rebuke of Israel in interviews with local newspapers published Thursday. The comments come on the heels of Israeli announcements of new housing for Jews in disputed east Jerusalem.
Abdullah said Israel must take "tangible actions" toward ending settlements and returning to negotiations with Palestinians if it wants peace.
