JNS.orgJordanian Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour said Tuesday that Jordan would not take action against Israel until the investigation into the death of Palestinian-Jordanian judge Raed Zueter, who was fatally shot last week after attacking an Israeli soldier at the Allenby Bridge border crossing, is completed.

Jordanian parliament members gave the government an ultimatum following the incident, calling for the severing of all diplomatic ties with Israel and urging the release of Ahmed Daqamseh, the Jordanian soldier who in 1997 murdered seven Israeli schoolgirls at the Island of Peace on the border between the two countries.

The Jordanian legislators initiated a no-confidence vote in the government after the ultimatum went largely ignored. Following the vote, Ensour said that until conclusions are drawn from the joint Israeli-Jordanian investigation team, Jordan will not expel the Israeli ambassador and will not recall its ambassador from Tel Aviv. Ensour also criticized Israel, saying that if Jordan cuts off ties to Israel, the latter may take the opportunity to “Judaize” Jerusalem and take control of the holy places there.
