A nice article about Queen Rania's personal involvement in the treatment of a young Iraqi girl.

"
Lt. Col. Pat Frank, the 1-28 Inf. commander, along with his personal security detachment, escorted the tandem to the National Iraqi Assistance Council through a sector of the city they were not familiar with, where Dr. Victoria Jacobs assisted with shortening a three-day process to just one afternoon. Arnot worked with the Jordanian government to get clearance for the treatment, and with the intervention of Queen Rania, it was acquired.


King said the time saved was vital for Mariam's well-being....."

King Abdullah II of Jordan has given a plot of land to the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem for construction of a church and retreat center at the Jordan River location traditionally believed to be the baptismal place of Jesus.

"It's a privilege for us to have this gift from His Majesty King Abdullah and at the same time we look at this as a project to build a medium-sized Gothic Church with a retreat center," said Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem Suheil Dawani, who officially dedicated the land on March 28.

Thanks for putting video for us hilal but i am disappointed. I thought the queen would answer herself not put an american exchange student on to 'answer' questions. This guy is PR for Jordan and talking in stereotypes himself. It does not answer any hard questions and lots of people posted good questions on YouTube - you can see if you go to the website. It does not say anything about human rights, religious freedom in Jordan or anywhere else in the Arab world - this video was a 'cop out' and I hope the future ones are better. If Arabs want to get rid of stereotypes of us then we need to put our house in order.

This is not a one-off exercise and the intended plan is that there will be a series of videos throughout the summer months. Moreover having had a quick look on the site it seems her response has gone down very well with many Youtubers.

AMMAN (JT) - His Majesty King Abdullah has ordered the government to take immediate measures to curb the surge in prices of essential commodities and alleviate the economic hardships citizens are going through.

AMMAN (JT) - The National Council for Family Affairs (NCFA) on Sunday endorsed the national strategy for the elderly, which seeks to upgrade their economic, cultural and social status.


During a meeting chaired by Her Majesty Queen Rania, the council’s board of trustees endorsed the blueprint, prepared in cooperation with the ministries of social development and health, the Jordan Nursing Council and representatives of the private and voluntary sectors.


The strategy, which is scheduled to provide an analysis of the overall situation of senior citizens in the country and seeks to empower them, will be launched this year.

ZARQA - Mouath Mohammad Hanbali woke up yesterday morning not knowing that Monday would be a turning point in his life.
Confined to bed for eight months due to a spinal fracture, Hanbali was in dire financial straits. He could not afford to pay for treatment, or support his family and pay the house rent.
But a visit to his home by a special guest on Monday changed his life and that of his family.
His Majesty King Abdullah paid an unannounced visit to Hanbali’s house yesterday to check on the family after he became aware of their situation

Im actually kind of glad they feature nother perosons because its comes from him rather then qr. Ithink that if she speaks for some one else, it will not make as much sense since she hasnt had that "outside" view that foreigners do.

She does need to get the outside POV, but I agree in that I was disappointed that so much of her first response was not "her".

yeah, i was also a bit dissappointed about the first response. why not commenting on any of those important questions that so many people asked or touched some of those topics she mentions at the very beginning? of course the story of the american guy is interesting, but it's just ONE point and may not be representative enough, imo. maybe a more extended response would be much more interesting to hear. i believe this idea has great potential, but the first outcome wasn't in my opinion of its best quality.
