#2 to quote wikipedia:
The term Black September (Arabic: أيلول الأسود aylūl al-aswad) refers to the Jordanian Civil War that began in September 1970 and ended in July of 1971. The conflict was fought between the two major components of the Jordanian population, the Palestinians represented by the Palestine Liberation Organisation under the leadership of Yasser Arafat and the Trans-Jordanians represented by the Jordanian Armed Forces under the leadership of King Hussein. At its core the civil war sought to determine if Jordan would be ruled by the Palestine Liberation Organisation or the Hashemite Monarchy. The war resulted in the deaths of thousands of people, the vast majority Palestinian. Armed conflict lasted until July 1971 with the expulsion of the Palestine Liberation Organisation and thousands of Palestinian fighters to Lebanon.

#7 They can - they [politely] just don't want to.
Methinks the ruling Hashemites know any "Paleo Spring" will covertly actually target them, NOT the Israelis despite any PA = Fatah-Hamas rants to the contrary.
So do the Israelis.
