Queen`s tweets about 11\9 attacks anniversary
Quote:
11/9: Amman bombings, a tragic memory; one we can't let turn into a tragic legacy. Let it be about hope, peace, & understanding.

On the anniversary of the Amman bombings, let's rebuild in our hearts peace & understanding that will last for generations.

Rania receiving her Glamour Magazine award.

First the negative: what a bizarre-looking trophy. Now the positive: I'm glad to see her in a gown with some colour to it.

She's queen of one of the poorest countries in the Middle East and I sincerely believe most, if not all of, her efforts at home and abroad should revolve around helping her fellow Jordanians. I know she visits a lot of schools in her own country. My issue is that every time she either gets involved in an international campaign or starts one, it never seems to have a direct impact on Jordan. For example, the 1Goal program wasn't about raising money/awareness for education in Jordan but for Africa. If these international campaigns do have a material impact on Jordan, then her office needs to do a much better job of communicating that. Otherwise attending pep rallies in LA just look like a publicity stunt so she can continue to win awards like the two she just picked up in the last few days.

Well said Adamari. Too much jetsetting and picking up these silly awards that only benefit her personal image and not enough time spent addressing Jordanian problems and there are huge social problems in Jordan. She has spent too much time building an international platform for her own image and not enough being queen of Jordan and I mean a real queen not just in name only. Pep rallies, Glamour magazine, Letterman show it just cheapens the office of queen.

It's quite tiring to read the same comments posted over & over again, I think said once is more than enough, we do get your point/opinion & it's quite clear. Rania has been helping Jordanian's and it is clear if you go through all the different threads, addressing their problem internationally is clearly not what she wants to do but while abroad, she focuses on problems that need a bigger group to help and help those who have nobody to speak for.

That is one weird looking award. I wonder if we will get her speech, interesting what she would have to say.

She does not do much for Jordan but her press office is very active making it appear that way.

She is too mature for that dress and the speech will be as repetitive as all the others she makes using the same metaphors and tired phrases. It gets quite tiring to hear the same thing being said over and over again I agree.

well this time I really find it not a useful or important visit ; I know I am not that one who can judge but as speaking as normal Jordanian following daily news she could have sent a video spent more time here espically today in 9/11 the anniversary for amman bombings ...

I too feel a show of solidarity with the victims at home and showing fellow Muslims that these outrages are not only inhumane but unIslamic would achieve far more in cross cultural understanding than appearing on a stage at Carnegie Hall. She needs to appeal to the ordinary Arab person for cross cultural understanding not in a country which is already a huge melting pot like America but alas, her talks in Arabic do not reflect the same sentiments she talks about in the West for the most part.

This was the biggest terrorist outrage Jordan has ever suffered and I really feel the king and queen should have made a big thing of leading the nation together in remembrance and educating people against radicalism within Jordan.

Report about the Glamour Women of the Year Award

In my opinion, the event had a tinge of hypocrisy. Ensembles chosen by various attendees are not my cup of tea.

She really does not look good in those pictures. In fact I am quite shocked but I think the make up did not help her or the hair color she has at present. I hope she is back in Jordan soon ready to do some good work for her own people instead of flying overseas for non-essential reasons. She has had plenty of rest and is not too ill to travel thousands of miles for these awards and celebrity events so it would be good to see her devote time and energy to Jordanian problems for the next few weeks.

Let's hope she'll do as you're saying.

Mine either. I don't know if it's better to cry or laugh when looking at some of the participants of the gala.
