Thanks to all who posted the link to the video of QR at Davos, however there was nothing original in there, just the usual rhetoric politically and the 'I am just an ordinary Mom' bit we have seen before. I did note that the US journalists were trying to make a big deal about Rania before she got married with special emphasis on the word 'business' and 'banking executive', however, I think everyone knows she held a very junior position after graduation - she certainly wasn't an 'Alan Greenspan' figure as they constantly try to make out. That irritates me.

she graduated in 1991 and married in 1993 - she was working for no more than 2years before she married. what sort of executive position could she have accomplished in 2 years?

King condemns 'needless injury of Islamic sensibilities'

WASHINGTON (Petra) — His Majesty King Abdullah on Thursday condemned “needless desecration and injury of Islamic sensibilities” and cartoons “misrepresenting and vilifying” the Prophet Mohammad.

In a speech at the National Prayer Luncheon in Washington, DC, King Abdullah told more than 3,000 US and international thinkers, religious leaders and politicians that he also condemns “extremists, of any religion, who teach intolerance and violence, mutilate scripture to advance their cause.”

I seriously hope this controversy blows over. We've just begun hearing about this in Canada.
