Pardon Me?

Will someone please explain to me the logic of this?

“Israel’s separation fence is threatening Jordanís demographic balance”, said Jordanian ambassador to the UN, Prince Zeid Hussein during deliberations at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) at The Hague. “A new wave of refugees is threatening my country in light of the fence”, he added.

Given that Jordan was created from approximately 80% of “Palestine”, as a homeland for the Arabs living there at the time, essentially making it the true PLO Arab state, Hussein’s complaint is perplexing. Could you imagine Israel complaining to a neighboring Arab country that its expulsion of Jews has created a “new wave of Jewish refugees threatening the country”? Probably not, because Israel is the Jewish homeland, and, consequently, the Israeli government are more than willing to accomodate Jews. The Arabs, on the other hand, have no great love for the PLO Arabs, to which Hussein’s remarks can attest.
