houri, I think you're correct in your analysis of King Abdullah's motives, I'd add though that he probably doesn't want Amman to see the violence and destruction that Beirut and Damascus have.

" From what I've heard the Danish cartoonists were looking to attract some sort of reaction"

The paper in question was going bust. They wanted a reaction, they got it. What I personally find so ridiclous is these cartoons were published at the end of September. The mob mentality has only just kicked in it seems.

I think a slap on the wrist was what was required , not an arrest. This sort of juvenile mocking of people's beliefs is pathetic.

Whether it's juvenile is something else but jokes based on relglion are commonplace and have been for years, there shoudn't be exceptions for one group alone.

I agree, everybody's religious beliefs should be respected.

She clearly stated she didnt talk about this with Prince Hussein and that he hadn't been told he'd be CP because they simply dont know what the future will bring. Which is true.

thats true. They complained and the government did nothing. And the result is that this whole thing has blown out of proportion.
If the Danish government had been quick to act to begin with it wouldn't be facing this crisis now, something which will only hurt Danish Muslims because they're already the target of xenophobia by many Danes.
In an environment as volatile as this, it only takes a spark to light the fire.

but if you want to go and open a thried about the cartoon subject go and do it but you don't need to post such a comment !!

But then the Danish Government doesn't control the media, so it's out of their hands. The only apology, if indeed one were given (which i believe it shouldn't be) should be from the newspaper. Government responses were unnecessary.

yes Humera I understand the Queen opinion in this matter but it will be wise to have crown prince because he will be in charge when the King is not in the country although his brothers do a very good job , I think you remamber when prince Hamzha was no longer a crown prince we siad it must be the reason that the king want his son to be the crown prince but it does not seems the case .

I think they're delaying announcing the Crown Prince, if it is indeed Prince Hussein, because of his age.
After all it's alot of pressure for a child to be under, moreover they probably have safety concerns, so would prefer the King's brothers to have the role of regent and to keep the Crown Prince issue at bay.
After all, I imagine that they have a contingency plan in place in case something did happen to Abdullah.

Don't worry, you made your point perfectly well! You're right though, so I wonder if in private Hussein knows of his status, ie if he is Crown Prince or not. After all, he has been seen accompanying his father on alot more trips.

A reminder that this thread is about King Abdullah and Queen Rania. Discussion about the Danish cartoons must be connected back to the King and Queen, not just a general discussion about the violence or actions/inactions of the Danish government or other gorups.

An interesting article about Iran and other nations response, I wasn't aware of King Abdullah's comments:

"For Iran, alone among Iraq's neighbors, both the sectarian-ethnic and the Islamist factors are now potent assets. Its principally Kurdish vulnerabilities on the first score are more than offset by its greatly improved Shiite hand throughout the region. This is a reality which, within the Sunni-dominated Arab establishment, Jordan has been most publicly alarmed about. King Abdullah II has warned of an Iranian-promoted "Shiite crescent" stretching from Iraq, through Syria (so long as its pro-Iranian Alawite-minority regime survives), to Hizbullah-dominated South Lebanon. Jordanian politicians even talk of building a "Sunni wall" through Iraq to keep the peril at bay."
