the little Salma always remind me of Princess Basma and I don't know why
Imane is a beauty she is a very pretty young lady I am looking forward to see her doing her own duties in the future.
I am glad Hussein enjoyed the Saturday evenning watching his fav team playing even if I think it's a little odd to remove all the members family only to watxh the football match IMO.Imane does not look intested at all.

Princess Iman usually seems bored or sad

I think because she has the same pronounced overbite that is a Hashemite genetic trait

This doesn't surprise me as Rania hasn't worn anything really noteworthy for sometime and Hola is just a magazine full of sycophantic gossip and PR plants anyway. Isabel Preysler has worn some amazing outfits this year though and always look super elegant and groomed I find Asmaa Al-Assad to be far more elegant and professional in appearance as a Premier Lady from a ME country. I don't include Sheikha Mozah as she dresses according to a different criteria

According to Hola the 16 ladies (royals, first ladies, celebrities) included in the poll were selected by an international jury of fashion experts (and for them QRania was 3rd, too; preceded by Naty Abascal as 1st and Carla Bruni as second).
I agree that Asma Al-Assad should have been included, she is a very elegant lady.
It has astonished me a bit that CPLetizia did not get more votes - by readers of a Spanish magazine that does above all a lot of PR for the Spanish royals.

Jordan king orders price cuts 'to protect poor'
AMMAN — Jordan's government is preparing to take urgent steps to reduce prices of commodities amid rising popular discontent around the country, a senior official said on Tuesday.
"King Abdullah II has instructed Prime Minister Samir Rifai to take immediate and effective measures to mitigate the impact of rising prices of commodities on citizens," the official told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Prehaps its time for Jordan's king to take notes from Spain's king, and transition Jordan from dictatorship to democracy?

I agree. He could use this opportunity to stand up to the conservatives and (eventually) allow the PM to be elected. That would be an important first step. There's always the danger of so-called Islamists coming to power but that can't always be used as an excuse to rob any population of the right to choose. A lot of articles I've been reading, including some comments from Jordanians, mention discontent with the government, and not so much the king. This is a good chance for him to show his people he's willing to give them a choice. He's been meeting with the opposition but I hope something concrete comes out of it. The situation in the ME right now is really more about political and economic reform, we haven't seen the usual anti-Western/anti-imperialist rhetoric (not yet anyway). That shows that people really are looking for solutions and not interested in the typical scapegoating against the west.

King is ‘off limits’ in Jordan
. . . Experts say Abdullah’s conservative allies, rather than the king, have been the biggest stumbling block to political reform. But if protests continue, he could seize the opportunity to push forward.
“He will have to give serious consideration to including key opposition people in the new cabinet,” says Jordan expert Curtis Ryan of Appalachian State University. “He can reach out to the opposition in the short term, and in the longer term draw the prime minister and the cabinet from the parliament.”
