In contrast to mainstream Arab opinion,Cheap Jordan Shoes, King Abdullah opposed the creation of a Palestinian state and wanted Transjordan to take possession of any Palestinian terrirory that he could obrain through either negotiations or war the Transjor-danian monarch correspondingly became involved in negotiations with leaders of the Jewish community in Palestine prior to the formation of the Israeli state. Ever pragmatic, King Abdullah entered into discussions with the future Israeli leadership regarding the possible disposition of the Palestinian territory evacuated by the United Kingdom under a forthcoming UN resolution. King Abdullah at one point seemed willing to divide the disputed territory between Transjordan and the new Jewish state without war, and a conditional agreement was reached with Jewish Agency envoy Golda Mcycrson (later Golda Mcir) on this approach. In making this agreement,Retro Jordans, the king seemed primarily concerned with the potential ro expand his kingdom beyond its impoverished beginnings and transform I'ransjordan into a larger and more viable srare.

In response to increased intcrcommunal fighting in Palestine and pressure from other Arab states, Abdullah later revised his negotiating position to favor Transjordan assuming control of all former Palestinian territory with autonomy and strong civil protections for the Jews living there. Phis offer was unacceptable to the Jewish community,jordan releases, which sought a fully independent state. Following rhe breakdown in Jewish Agcncy-Transjordanian negotiations, pressures for war increased as Palestine's Jewish and Arab communities became locked in increasingly violent conflict. A variety of Arab states prepared to invade the disputed territory as soon as rhe British departed in order to prevent the establishment of the Israeli state. While many Arab leaders expected a rapid victory against Palestine's Jews,Jordans for sale, Abdullah was more realiscic. He entered inco the 1948-49 war only with reluctance and caution after the breakdown of negotiations with Jewish leaders in the full understanding that military cooperation among Arab countries was extremely poor. Abdullah was named as rhe Arab Leagues overall military commander in the war, but this appointment was largely a symbolic gesture since none of the other Arab militaries were willing to be directed by Transjordanian leaders.
