''We Are All Jordan'' Forum Concludes Deliberations</STRONG>
/13/

The Dead Sea, July 27 (Petra) -- ''We Are All Jordan'' forum concluded deliberations on Thursday at the Dead Sea Shores, by issuing the forum's document.

The forum stressed the importance of Jordan's role in facing the regional challenges through strengthening its internal front and increasing cooperation with Arab countries in fighting terrorism, extremism and takfir.

I love your avatar Godiva on the last thread, Rania looks really beautiful in that picture.

And I see what you mean about her hair madonna, I guess it is more "professional" shall we say if it is cut shorter - but she seems to be growing it long at the moment.

The trouble with having hair that long it takes forever to dry, style and keep looking nice.

And I must admit I don't know what the phrase means either!

another one of Petra's not-so-brilliant attempts at summarizing a speech in a single caption.
I cant really blame them either since they cant exactly attach the entire news item to a picture. They do have a news section where you can usually find more detailed information that's obviously not available in the photo gallery.

The King's entire speech at the conclusion of the "We are all Jordan" forum can be found here

Thanks for the link Humera. So he's basically saying he's not going to ignore Palestine, Iraq and now Lebanon just because he's focused on national unity in Jordan. Yeah, Petra does have pretty weird statements sometimes but they're still pretty good as a website...they keep it updated with news about the king & queen and all and I don't think any other arab leader really has that or if they do, their website is not as nice as Petra's.

Oh, by the way Humera, your avator is gorgeous! Haya reminds me of Queen Alia in that pic :)

Yes that's the meaning I got from the speech as well.
I suppose, for a leader in his position and the region his country's in, this balancing act is quite important.

She looks very serious in those pics, under a bit of strain almost but then given what's going on at present that would be no surprise.

Although perhaps it's just the angle of them that create that allusion I don't know.

She looks simple, classy and understated yet again.

About Rania's pictures where she is serious : after what's happening to Lebanon, it's difficult for anybody to smile.
