The study population is represented in the opinion articles published on online news sites that represent daily newspapers, whereas the study sample consists of Alghad and Addustour newspapers. The paper concludes to a number of findings which include: First, Jordanian opinion writers deal with the Palestinian cause as top priority at all public and official levels. Second, the Hashemite care of holy places is an everlasting patriotic duty that has to be sustained. Third, there is a special relationship between the Jordanian and Palestinian people. And but not least, the Palestinian people need to be able to establish their independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital, under the resolutions of international legitimacy.
