Is the "Jordanian Option" still alive?

This is an interesting article about recent closer ties between Jordan and the (West Bank) Palestinians, raising the question of what role Jordan can play in an ultimate peace treaty.

It may be a bit too premature and optimistic to think about something like this but it is an intriguing read. I would guess that a huge majority of Israelis who would prefer Jordan taking care of security rather than the ineffectual and doomed Abbas.
