The Palestinian people are starving, and the Jordanian king is on a mission in Washington, DC. Ash-Sharq Al-Awsat reports that "Official Jordanian sources told Ash-Sharq Al-Awsat that the Jordanian King, `Abdullah II, will discuss during his visit to Washington which began yesterday, Palestinian developments with President George Bush, especially the desperate need for aid by the Palestinian Authority, indicating that the Palestinian presidency does not have the necessary liquidity to cover `Abbas' moves, whether inside Palestine or outside, and that `Abbas' personal guards have not received any salaries or fees."
