Jordan’s King Abdullah will meet with Jewish leaders after his summit this week with President Bush. The king will meet Wednesday with representatives of Americans for Peace Now, the American Jewish Committee, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the Israel Policy Forum and the Republican Jewish Coalition, a spokeswoman for the Jordanian Embassy said. Bush and Abdullah will discuss Bush’s recognition last week of Israeli claims to some West Bank land in exchange for Israel’s unilateral withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and part of the West Bank. Abdullah welcomes the withdrawal but has criticized the recognition of any Israeli claim in the West Bank.
