You bring up a dilemma not easy to answer.  But that does not mean just forget it.  Restrictions exists because Israel was terrified over suicide bombings.  When I was there in 2006, the country was just wrecked by it.  Unfortunately, people like you are paying the price for it.  So you will agree with me, that it is not fair.  But how do we convince Israeli security, because their paranoia has a reason behind it.  In the foreseeable future, it does not seem like it is going to change, unless the Israeli government can change their position on the fact that you have a Jewish wife and 2 children who are eligible for Israeli citizenship.  The only thing I can recommend is that you contact an Israeli lawyer, to find out how you can get around this, because it falls within the jurisdiction of Israeli law.  But unfortunately, people like you are being held hostage by the perpetual sectarian violence that has gripped both Israelis and Palestinians.  But find out if an Israeli lawyer is feasible for you.

Let us bring this up to current standards.  King Hussein was in a war with Israel, but now his son is trying to help mediate some type of an Israeli-Palestinian peace treaty.  Jordan no longer has any control over the West Bank, it is now strictly between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.  We can continue the tradition of your father being a peace activist.  But being any type of peace activist means addressing the bitter pills that both Israel and the Palestinian Authority will have to swallow.  Bitter pills such as the status of Jerusalem, the Israeli settlements, and future citizenship such as the given will be Israel will also have an Arab minority, which means Palestine will have to allow some type of Jewish minority.
