AMMAN, Jordan -- Lawmakers have approved a measure that would only allow a state-appointed council to issue religious edicts, a move aimed at denying Islamic hard-liners a forum for disseminating extremist ideology.
The proposal on "fatwas," Arabic for religious edicts, follows a pledge by Jordanian ruler King Abdullah II in the wake of terror recent attacks to tighten legislation to prevent radical viewpoints from taking root

JORDAN will, in the near future, invest in agricultural projects in Tanzania. This follows talks held here between President Jakaya Kikwete and King Abdullah II bin al Hussein of Jordan.

Schenker, just returned from Jordan in July from a trip with faculty from Deerfield Academy and the Eaglebrook School and friends of the king's from across the region, finds himself an ambassador of sorts.
He wants to ensure that Americans understand who the boy he knew simply as "Ab" has become, his vision and the work King Abdullah II has done to establish a $62.5 million boarding school, built in the image of his alma mater in Deerfield.
"I want people to know what a visionary he is. ... If all the world leaders were as open-minded and dedicated to his people as he is, the world would be a better place," Schenker said. "My job is to see that people know about his vision and not to stereotype all Muslims."

Is this for real, $62.5 million boarding school (built in the image of the king's alma mater in Deerfield) for what !! I wonder how much the fees will be and how many families in Jordan can afford to send their children there

this is so funny i'm watching the view (with barbara walters) she had an interview with the king at the united nations and during the conversation he told her he had watched THE VIEW that morning!! she asked him how he liked it and he said he enjoyed it (what could he say i guess) but he laughed at the "hot topic" it was about gossip and thats always a "hot topic" in Jordon. she also said Rania is lovely and warm.

I just read in the newspaper that KA,QR and P.Hussien,friday night had Sohour( a late meal (which is taken usually in Ramdan), in a traditional small restaurent in "old amman" called Hashem (which is a very well known place here (it's been in business since 1952!) but a simple and a very very traditional one too). that offers Hommos,foul&falafel etc.etc., I thought that was a nice gesture of them to be btw all those simple people. but Al-rai Newspaper pissed me off,they put details on the news but they made it sound weird,they are Suck-ups,I don't think KA went there so a newspaper like alrai would write all that about it,he wanted to be there to show people that he cares for them and wants to be among them wherever they are,adn wanted to eat what they eat and drink what they drink! I wish Alrai didn't put it the way it did. I loved and respected what KA did.

Thank you King Abdullah
that was sooo sweet of you

That sounds really lovely. Thank you for telling us.

I've read articles before of them visiting restaurants in Amman and it's quite refreshing to read that they can do such things.

Replica American academy gives Jordan's king an authentic school reunion

ANNETTE YOUNG IN AMMAN
SOME people may remember their schooldays with a degree of sentimentality, others have less rosy memories. But few, if any, seek to build a replica of their school.
Yet just beyond the dusty outskirts of Amman, a long-held dream of King Abdullah II of Jordan is slowly coming to realisation as builders put the finishing touches to King's Academy, directly modelled on Deerfield, an elite American prep school in New England.

Amman- Jordan's King Abdullah II and Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak will hold summit talks in Cairo on Sunday in a bid to spur the stalled Middle East peace process, an official statement said Saturday. "The meeting takes place in the course of coordination and consultation on ways of reinvigorating the peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians," the statement from the Royal Court said.
