Abdullah: Education key to peace in Middle East

2/4/2006 By Jennifer Farish

OXFORD - Minutes before the king of Jordan spoke to the crowd gathered for his public address at the University of Mississippi on Friday, he took a moment to meet the university's Jordanian students.
One student, Orwa Tahaineh, remarked on the irony of coming to school in Mississippi and getting the opportunity to meet his king here.
"It is so great a coincidence," said Tahaineh, a graduate student in wireless communications.
Another, junior economics student Amr Ahmad, said he received several calls from people in Jordan about the royal visitor. "The whole country knew about it," said Ahmad, adding that the king is greatly respected in Jordan for his vision of peace and prosperity in the Middle East.
"He is a young king with a good future vision for Middle Eastern politics and peace process," he said. "He is working to present a good image of Islam all over the world."

Hi everyone.... Can someone tell me where I can go to see the cartoons that were printed. Haven't seen them and would like to see what all the fuss is about. Also, couldn't find the interview on nightline with Queen Rania. Need help again. Again, Merci... for all the photos you ladies have been posting. They are great.

Hi Houri, I don't know hopw but there seems to have been some kind of misunderstanding here. My comment was not directed at you nor was I trying to suggest that you were trying to 'move' the conversation on, I should have made it clearer that I was referring to Queen Rania dodging the CP succession question in the interview from Davos, how she wanted the conversation to move onto something different and it obviously made her uncomfortable. My remarks weren't directed at you and I am sorry if you thought they were.

Queen Rania offers solace to flood victims

AMMAN (JT) — Her Majesty Queen Rania on Tuesday visited flood-hit areas in the governorates of Aqaba and Maan, listening to the local communities' needs and consoling those who lost loved ones and livelihoods.

The flash floods, caused by heavy rainfall in the area on Thursday night, killed nine people in the southern and eastern regions of the Kingdom and resulted in the loss of shelter and livelihood as well as damaging the water, electricity and transportation infrastructure in both governorates.

During the field visit, the Queen met with the families affected by the floods in both governorates, who shared with her stories of their loss. Offering her sympathy and support, Queen Rania also conveyed His Majesty King Abdullah's support and his concerns for their well-being.

Jordan's King Abdullah II, center, listens to New Oleans Mayor Ray Nagin, right, as they walk through the destruction in the lower 9th ward Friday, Feb. 3, 2006, in New Orleans. New Orleans is still struggling to recover from the effects of Hurricane Katrina

Thanks for the pictures Humera, I had heard about the floods but had only seen 1 or 2 news articles on the web. I didn't guess they were quite so serious.

President Bush Welcomes King Abdullah of Jordan to the White House

PRESIDENT BUSH: Your Majesty, welcome back. I have had two good discussions with His Majesty. Last night His Majesty and the Crown Prince came to have dinner with Laura and me and some members of Congress, and we had a really good discussion. We had a little time by ourselves to talk strategically about the world and our deep desire for this world to be peaceful. .....
