Event | On March 15, 1972, King Hussein of Jordan proposed the formation of a “United Arab Kingdom” constituted of two provinces: Palestine, with Jerusalem as its capital, and Jordan, with Amman as the capital of both Jordan and the Kingdom, to take effect after the liberation of the West Bank. The proposal was made after the Jordanian army had driven all PLO forces outside the country. In response, the PLO leadership convened (in Cairo between 6 and 12 April) both a Popular Congress and an extraordinary session of the Palestine National Council which proclaimed their rejection of the “United Arab Kingdom” proposal.
