Prime Minister Abdullah Nsur warned on Wednesday that Jordan might review a 1994 peace treaty with Israel after the Knesset began a debate on allowing Jewish prayer at Jerusalem's sensitive Al-Aqsa mosque compound.The vote followed a motion the previous day signed by 47 MPs demanding that the peace treaty with Israel be scrapped.The Israeli foreign ministry declined to comment on the Jordanian parliament's vote.The Knesset Tuesday evening began a debate called by rightwingers to demand that Israel end its practice of forbidding Jewish prayer at the Al-Aqsa compound.
