Los Angeles Times article

http://www.latimes.com/news/printedi...ck=1&cset=true

AMMAN, Jordan — A politically inexperienced king takes control of a Middle Eastern monarchy from his powerful father, surrounds himself with U.S. military hardware and spies, loses touch with his people and is finally ejected in a popular uprising.
That was the tale of Mohammed Reza Shah Pahlavi, the pro-American ruler of Iran whose ouster ushered in the reign of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and three decades of Islamic rule.
Now many in this Arab country of more than 5 million people fear that a similar fate could befall King Abdullah II, the Jordanian monarch who assumed power after his charismatic father died in 1999.

Film school

From Jerusalem Post

http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satelli...cle%2FShowFull

Arab bloggers fume that Jordan's new Red Sea film school is open to Israelis

Jordanian King Abdullah II's promise earlier this month to create a Red Sea Institute of Cinematic Arts in Jordan (RSICA), which will include Israeli film students, has caused a stir among bloggers on line from all over the Middle East.

I love the fact that the JRF meets so many "ordinary" people during Ramadan and do the utmost to mix with their subjects.

The first picture is so sweet!
Ramadan certainly is a wonderful and special time to see the King and Queen with Jordanians from all walks of life.

thanks for the articl Adamari but I think that The writer Exaggerates little,maybye KA and QR are not fan of the jordanian's customs and traditions
I am not from jordanian but some jordanians friends told me that alot of things are not like abdullah and rania try to show to the world,so I think that articl make some intersting points.

I read the article today before seeing that u have posted it in the threads, I find it a very serious and scary article...even Al-jazeera mentioned it in its news!

what did al-jazeera say about the article, lil monkey?

the article really doesn't say anything new - a lot of people here at the forums even have said basically the same thing...but to see something like the la times saying it makes it sound more dramatic and factual...
