Jordan Option

   An approach to a peaceful resolution of the Arab-Israeli conflict that suggested that Israel and Jordan would negotiate to determine the future of the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) because Jordan between 1949 and 1967 had been the power controlling the area and appeared amenable to possible participation in a peace process. It had been a major element of Israel Labor Party policy until the Oslo Accords and the Israel-Jordan Peace Treaty.
