it's a wonderful gesture of the king to invite all the beslan students to spend time in jordan. does the invitation cover the costs? if so, did the king and queen pay for them or it was paid with taxes?

what a hectic schedule rania and abdullah are going through! the netherlands, back to jordan and two days later they were in the uk! impressive.

Will i lived in jordan and for me as a Jordanian I Participate in elections arrangements, QRania has nothing to do with elections at all and elections in Jordan its about your own choice if you believe in that person you can vote for him, it has nothing to do of being a woman or a man.

Thanks for the pictures of the visit from the Beslan children. That's a really lovely gesture, it's sad that the 2year anniversary passed with so little attention in the media.

As we all know it is not the queen consort who makes the laws in Jordan. It was the king who presented a royal decree in 2003 that reserved six seats for women in the lower house of parliament (while the parliament was dissolved). He was following thereby an earlier parliamentary committee recommendation (while making some changes on it), but also campaigns of various women’s and human rights groups backed by Queen Rania (besides, we will never know the extent of direct influence she exerts on her husband and of her lobbying leading Jordanian politicians behind the scenes).
By her and other women's activists in Jordan the quota system was and is promoted as something that is necessary until Jordanians become more accustomed to seeing women in public office: as the maybe only way to convince them that women can be qualified deputies worth to be elected.
In 2003 she encouraged female candidates to run for election and her office provided résumés of their qualifications.

King, Queen mark 1st anniversary of hotel bombings with victims’ families

AMMAN (JT) — Her Majesty Queen Rania met with some of the victims of last year’s tragic hotel bombings as well as their families at Civil Defence Department headquarters on Thursday.
During a very emotional meeting, the Queen reiterated her support for everyone affected by the tragedy.
“The more we stand together, the stronger we stand,” she said. “Nothing can fill the void of your loss, but we stand by you to help you deal with it.”
The gathering observed a moment of silence and prayer for the 90 men, women and children who lost their lives in last year’s attacks.
A few of the injured and several of the victims’ family members recounted the emotional experiences of the past year. All the families at Thursday’s meeting had received psychological counselling, as well as medical and financial assistance to help ease the burden of the trauma from the Jordanian Society for the Prevention of Family Violence’s (JSPFV) National Compassion and Support Centre.
