i think you make lots of sense i agree with. also this is true but its the only way a jordanian queen will become one. lol. only through marriage. JMO but i get feeling that this is what peoples thought of queen noor before, when shes just married to the king. then she open a lot of doors for queen rania to do what shes does now, only she gets all credits. i wonder do peoples feel the same?

I fully agree...But I would like to remind you of the fact that her task of replacing the outer popularity of Queen Noor wasn't an easy task either...King Hussein was a highly popular figure in all the world (He's the most popular Jordanian King ever, inside and abroad) and that helped Queen Noor too...It is a different case with Queen Rania now, her task and interest, since she became a Queen, was to replace or fill that popularity abroad...IMO, promoting the inside popularity is far more important than promoting it abroad and she succeeded in achieving this in a certain way and on a certain level.

She was voted the most inspirational leader featured on one specific CNN program. This says that people liked her more than the others featured there. That's it, no reason to be upset in this way, yamamah.

Well, Queen Noor raised Jordan's profile and the Arab profile in general for 20+ years in countless interviews. She spoke many, many times about bridging the gap and she herself as an Arab American did that in person just not through the same medium which wasn't available then and Queen Noor continues to encourage inter cultural dialogue etc to this day. So what Queen Rania is doing isn't so new. If you read interviews of Queen Noor at the time of her marriage, you would be forgiven for believing all Arabs live in tents, have four wives and own camels! Noor shone a light on the Middle East through a very turbulent time and showed the world the other side, that Arab people are people too.

Oh Veram98, I am not upset not at all, after all, this poll was hardly scientific! I am just promoting discussion that's all

That's what I wanted to say. We should not take this so seriously. It is just a (non scientific) poll among viewers of a certain TV program.

No the danger is that although we don't take it seriously, there are people who believe everything they see or hear on TV as the truth. That is the dangerous thing when people do not question things.

Yes. I only said certain people as dalia had used the word certain a couple of times in the sentence. I don't dislike Rania on a personal level but I don't buy into the hype.

I read all posts but,I have a question. What do Jordanians really think about Queen Rania? Do they think that she is successful or not? & I have a friend from Jordan she said that lots of people in Jordan says Queen Noor is more successful than Queen Rania.Why is that?

I think many people though not all, believe Noor was a better Queen because she was seen to do a lot more to promote 'Jordan' rather than 'Noor'. It has been mentioned that Rania promotes herself much more than she promotes Jordan. There are lots of reasons from lots of people.
