There was a brief appearance by Queen Rania on Oprah yesterday, the show was about the threats of terrorism.
Here's an excerpt and picture from the show's website:

What worries Jordan's Queen Rania?

"I find that there is one overarching problem that's fundamental and that's common to all of the issues that we're facing today—that is the 'hope gap,'" Queen Rania says. "The gap between people who feel that if they work hard, they have a chance of bettering their lives, and those who actually feel that they are just condemned to a life of needlessness and hopelessness. A person who's hurting halfway around the globe, his pain is eventually going to affect me."

"I think it makes these people who feel that way more vulnerable to extremist views. They're easy to influence because they feel that they have nothing to live for and, therefore, nothing to lose. It's not enough to just tell people that there is light at the end of the tunnel, and it's not enough just to show them the life. We have to help them find their way towards that light, and I feel that education is a very powerful enabling tool to reach that."

Hello Humera. So ,she is co-writing a book on youth issues. Sounds interesting. Are we going to be able to get it here in Canada ???? I am reading Queen Noor's book. Leap of Faith. It's pretty good. Did anyone read the November issue of People in 2005 on Queen Rania and King Abdullah. This might be old news to you all, but I just came across it. It was great. Rania is a Desperate Housewives devotee. The article covered alot of questions I was wondering about. She likes a group called Coldplay!! Anyone know who they are??????? Hey, She like Norah Jones and a few others.....

Hi Claudia,
yes many of us did read the People article. Infact if you have a look at the old King Abdullah and Queen Rania threads, you'll find scans of pictures featured in the article that I made when the magazine came out.
As for Queen Rania's book, it seems to be about international issues regarding the youth, entreprenuers etc, which means it should be available in Canada.
I hope it wont be as difficult to get as her first book, which was only available in Jordan I believe, at least I haven't found it on any websites like amazon. I wonder if they've stopped publishing it altogether. It was given out to school children in Jordan.

Thanks for the screenshot and excerpt from Oprah, Humera.

I'd heard about the book before and it will be an interesting read, I imagine. Where she gets the time to do everything, I don't know?!

I believe the World Economic Forum started today in Davos, there should be sokme interesting speeche to come!

King Stresses that Peace is Strategic Aim</STRONG>
Amman, Jan. 27(Petra)-- His Majesty King Abdullah II stressed, during a phone call on Friday with Acting Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, that resuming the peace process in the Middle East should form a strategic aim. The King pointed that the Palestinian people seek for peace, noting that the results of the Palestinian legislative elections should not prevent us from moving towards peace to end conflict and violence in the region. His Majesty had earlier yesterday made a phone call with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas during which the King affirmed the necessity of resuming the peace process to restore rights of the Palestinians.

i honestly don't want to get into political debate. as i see, jordan has always been a mediator between the middle east and western, so we'll just have to see. :)

As purple_platinum has tried to avoid, I will remind everyone that discussions of politics is against our Forum Posting Rules & Guidelines.

On more than one occasion, threads in the Jordanian forum have been closed because members insisted on bringing poltical topics or figures into discussions.

If King Abdullah or Queen Rania meet with a leader of the Hamas party then pictures can be posted or discussions about that specific meeting (to a limit) can take place. However, a general discussion about the Hamas party is not permitted.
