King Abdullah: Israel has peace partner in PA gv't

Associated Press, THE JERUSALEM POST Sep. 9, 2005



The Palestinian government can put a stop to the chaos raging on its violent streets and negotiate peace with Israel, but only with international help, Jordan's King Abdullah II told Israeli TV viewers on Friday.

"I do think you do have a partner for peace, but again, I think all of us, whether it's Jordan, Israel or the international community, we have to strengthen the (Palestinian Authority) because there are going to be extremists on either side that want to derail the process," Abdullah said in an interview with Israel TV recorded in Amman. Given support, the Palestinian effort can fend off efforts to destabilize it, he added, singling out the need to strenghten the Palestinian police.

I've find an interesting article sent by a member in the "Royals" forum,where is quoted king abdallah of jordan by a serious politic analyst and observer as a dictator



Sunday, September 4, 2005


WASHINGTON -- Over a lifetime, Bill Clinton has exhibited a number of irresistible urges. One, more acceptable than others, was to be inaugurated, which, according to my dictionary, means commencing some office with ceremonies and ritual.
According to Bill, he inaugurated himself into marijuana smoking -- but not inhaling -- at Oxford University in England. Five years later, he was sworn in as attorney general of Arkansas, then five times as governor of the state and twice as president of the United States.

Now in 2005, Bill Clinton is looking for a new job with a beautiful new inauguration.

Destination NYC


It will all start with the Clinton Global Initiative in New York City on Sept. 15. And for three days it will bring together what Bill's spin doctors describe as "the world best minds and most distinguished problem-solvers."

We all know how they can lie.

Mark Twain put words into Clinton's mouth when he wrote in Huckleberry Finn, "Hain't we got all the fools in town on our side? And, ain't that a big enough majority in any town?"

Certainly the Clintonistas have tasked themselves with some major problems. In three days, they will offer "immediate practical solutions" on:


how to reduce poverty
how to use religion as a force for conflict resolution
how to combat climate change
and how to strengthen governance throughout the world.

With Bill Clinton as ringmaster, thumping the circus drum and conning the chumps and dupes into the big top, it is time to pay some close attention to the myriad scalawags who will congregate at the Sheraton Hotel on New York's West Side.

There will be Jacques Chirac, soon to face re-election and become former president of France; Tony Blair, who, unbelievably, is serving a third term as Britain's prime minister and as Clinton's performing poodle; Olusegun Obasanjo, Nigeria's president, who can teach any Western politician tricks on how to privatize state funds into their very private bank accounts; and the truly sinister Paul Kagame, the Tutsi who became president of Rwanda.

Kagame, a part of the chaos and violence in Rwanda, was chosen for the presidency of that sad country by his neighbor, President Yoweri Museveni -- best known to the U.S. military as "Little Darling" in Uganda.

With these four guests, Bill Clinton has brought together a tarnished, intrigue-ridden band of experts who have all eliminated poverty, pollution and hunger from their own lives. Their double-dealing has made chicanery the order of the day. To bring individuals like Kagame and Obasanjo to America to talk about "good governance" is a sick joke.

Cue the clowns

But, there are many more willing to work for the next Clinton inauguration.

Clinton, as every fairground shill knows, has to bring out the clowns. And he has them in abundance.

There is his old Vice President Al Gore, now billed as the super-environmentalist and -- hold the laughs -- renowned for government cost-cutting.

Joining Al the Remarkable is Kofi Annan, embroiled in the United Nations' oil-for-food scandal.

Joining them as straight man is Robert Rubin, who ran the U.S. Treasury, invented a voodoo mix known as "Rubinomics" and retired to Wall Street before the economy turned sour.

Also attending is Gareth Evans, a former Australian foreign minister, now presiding over the International Crisis Group, who has never found a crisis that Democrats can't turn into a catastrophe.

The role of chief clown was reserved for John Kerry's money machine and supporter of many strange and varied causes, George Soros. Who better than he to sound his own horn and lead the parade?

Naturally, a Clinton circus has to have a lady in tights and spangles on horseback. Madonna was not available, so the job went to Kosovo Queen, also known as Madeleine Albright, who turned Washington's once prestigious Foggy Bottom into a laughingstock.

'Prize acts'

The really prize acts include the Monarch of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, best known as King Abdullah, whose claim to fame is that he once said, "True Islam supports a democratic environment," then, at once, proceeded to crush any attempt to discuss the rights of his citizens.

Also attending will be the prime minister of Bangladesh, the Begum (Widow) Khaleda Zia, whose country is characterized, even by our wimpish State Department, as "poor, overpopulated, ill-governed and corrupt."

Among the speakers will be the Bangladeshi "Robin Hood," as comic relief, whose true name is Mohammad Yunus, founder of a bank that believes credit is a human right. Sure, he lends money, but ask where it comes from and you will find that it is donations from wealthy individuals and governments to Yunus, some of which he lends on strict repayment terms.

Bill Clinton is bored and on the loose, looking for an inauguration. Once again, he will remember and act on Mark Twain's advice: "Truth is the most valuable thing we have. Let us economize it!"

It's an obvious statement, your comments regarding Rania and Abdullah are always in the same vein and incredibly predictable.

AMMAN (AFP) - Jordan's King Abdullah II left for the Vatican for talks with Pope Benedict XVI ahead of a trip to the United States to attend the UN summit on reform, officials said. The monarch is due to meet the pope on Monday for talks on promoting inter-faith ties, according to a statement from the royal court carried by state-run Petra news agency said.

"The meeting will be an opportunity to to promote inter-faith dialogue and affirm the noble humanitarian values to confront extremism and terrorism and attempts to undermine the real image of Islam," it said.

In July, the Jordanian monarch hosted an international conference to help improve the image of Islam.

In New York the Jordanian monarch will address the September 14-16 UN summit on "Jordan's key role to achieve regional and international peace and stability", it added.

He is also due to meet Christian, Muslim and Jewish religious leaders as well as other figures to stress home the message that "Islam is a religion of tolerance, peace and mutual respect," it said.

King Abdullah is also due to attend an international conference hosted by former US president Bill Clinton in New York before heading to Washington for talks with senior administration officials.

American news agencies are wigging over the fact that KAbdullah doesn't want to kiss or touch the Pope's ring. Different religion and culture.

How come wearing white to the Vatican is a "faux pas"? Sorry I am not aware of how things go, when visiting a church or meeting the pope :o

BTW I love her suit it's very classy.

Did anyone notice that in the pics they focus in Rania and completely ignore KA's presence?

The protocol of vatican orders that only the catholic queens should wear white outfits while meeting the pope ,covering their hair,while the other royals including crown princesses should wear black wear.

I don't know if Rania was obliged to wear again this black oufit since she's not an european or catholic royal
