thank you reeda for posting the english summary of QR's radio interview in the last thread...

one question: QR mentioned traffic accidents due to DUIs, I was under the impression that Jordan was a dry country...is alcohol permitted there? I thought drinking wasn't allowed in Islam...

DUI, or driving under the influence, can also refer to drugs.

Under the patronage of Their Majesties, King Abdullah II and Queen Rania of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, and jointly organised by the IOC and the NOC of Jordan, the Conference will be an excellent platform to exchange expertise and best practice as well as collaborate for future action around the 2008 motto.
INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE - NEWS

So that's two major conferences for 2008 announced so far.

Talks between both sides are in progress to offer free treatment in Jordan for patients in Gaza Strip on the order of King Abdullah II of Jordan,
