AMMAN, (PIC)– The Jordanian foreign ministry denounced Israeli MK Arieh Eldad’s provocative statement and anti Jordan activity.

The ministry described Eldad’s statements as “ridiculous and unacceptable”, urging Israel to stop all provocative acts that would only spur hostile feelings.

It said that Eldad, who is famous for his call to turn Jordan into an alternative homeland for the Palestinians, voices hatred and reflects an unbalanced state and crazy thinking.

The official spokesman for the Jordanian foreign ministry, Mohammed Al-Kayed, said on Wednesday evening that his ministry had summoned the Israeli ambassador to Amman and told him of Jordan’s condemnation and rejection of such fanatic statements that only ignited hatred and widened gaps.

Kayed said that Jordan asks and expects that the Israeli government would adopt a clear position condemning such statements.
