Jordan's Queen Rania Visits Bomb Victims

After suicide bombers simultaneously attacked three hotels in Amman, killing at least 56 people and injuring more than 100 on Wednesday, Jordan's Queen Rania Al-Abdullah on Thursday paid her respects to victims throughout the capital city, consoling the wounded in hospitals and offering words of comfort to their families.
http://people.aol.com/people/article...128350,00.html

In the second half of that article, there's a small bio on QR, a quote from Katie Couric, and also a mention of Rania's upcoming visit to the US. Now I wonder if she will go to the John Paul II legacy dinner. It would be nice if she could because the visit is meant to be about interfaith dialogue among other things. But I'd completely understand if she wants to be in Jordan at this difficult time.

btw..there will be more on Queen Rania in People magazine in the next issue:

Queen Rania Continues Support for the Injured and their families

Amman, Nov. 12(Petra)-- Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah continued her visits to the capital's hospitals to support and follow up on the recovery of those wounded in Wednesday's attacks, which left dozens of civilians dead and many injured. As she walked through the wards of the hospitals, on Saturday, Her Majesty spoke words of consolation and encouragement to those still grieving the tragic loss of loved ones.

I've moved all of the pictures from the various threads regarding the terrorist attacks into this thread. I felt that since many members of the royal family are reacting to and doing many things in response to the terrorist attack, it would be better to have it all in one thread.

If you see posts that I forgot to move, please send me a PM with a link to the thread and the post number and I will move it.

Thank you for doing this Alexandria. Its much better this way. Instead of having to post in different threads.
Though I must say for a second there I was taken aback by the title. And then it dawned on me, thats November 9 not September 11.:p
Very eerie, as maryshawn said.

A few videos at this link (scroll down the page to the "Watch" section on the the right):
http://www.cnn.com/2005/WORLD/meast/...sts/index.html

The third video is about Queen Rania visiting the victims of the attack and also has a brief interview with her. The report was aired originally on Anderson Cooper on Thursday.

You have to wonder if the date was a "coincidence?" Somehow--given the twisted mind of the principal terrorist--I doubt it.

It's a tough choice to make. I'd support either decision but suspect she may elect to remain in Jordan as her supportive and comforting presence seems to be greatly needed and wanted by the people right now. If she goes at all, she certainly has a message to bring to other participants and the media covering the event--on behalf of the people of Jordan. Difficult call. She may be waiting to see how things go and make it a very quick trip--or send a delegate on her behalf.

Yes we'll have to see how things go in the next few days. QR could use this opportunity to talk to the American media about the attacks in Jordan in addition to the interfaith and Arab-American dialogue she's supposed to engage in during the visit. And because the attacks happened so recently, the media will pay more attention to what she has to say.
Its exactly the sort of thing terrorists like Zarqawi dont want.
But again I'd understand if QR wants to be at home right now.

Here's a link for the John Paul II legacy dinner:

I know. I hadn't even thought about the significance of the date before you mentioned it.
Leave it to the terrorists to think of something so evil and twisted.
I've been hearing in the media that two of the suicide bombers were husband and wife.
I cant even begin to understand that one.

Until you had pointed it out to me Mary Shawn I had never thought of the date as being of any significance because I would've seen the date as November 9 -- or as 11/9 rather than the other way around. Given that the reveral of the date would be 9/11 I don't think it's a coincidence at all. I think the date was conscientiously chosen as a clear message to the world that these individuals and these people as a collective are capable of anything and everything. It was a date chosen to elicit fear in everybody and as a reminder of the attacks in New York City.

It's unfortunate that individuals who are obviously very clever minded and intelligent, who have the knowledge, the expertise, as well as the means, not to mention the patience to plan such an attack have elected to use those talents in this manner.

From seeing everything that has been posted here and on the news, I'm glad to see that this incident has really brought the royal family together and the country as a whole in unity against these individuals. The amount of compassion and sympathy, the generosity and the outpouring of prayers and concern makes you really see that humanity exists in our world. It's too bad that it can only be glistened in moments of such tragedy.

I saw him on CNN too. There was live feed from al jazeera and al arabiya. It was of Hashim at the hotels and hospitals, also speaking with officials. He looked great, very much in control and very mature.

It's so true what you say; these bombers have no real Islam in their hearts. If they genuinely understood Islam then they would never do such inhumane acts of terror. :(:(

will i think they use Islam to cover their acts , but lets face it , the Israeli occupation in Palestine and the American in Iraq is the real reason behind this anger ,to be unfair with Arabs and Muslim and give all the rights to Israel is big mistake , i know there no excuse for such acts, but everything has a reason , and nothing comes from nothing :(

Jordan Announces Arresting the female Suicide Bomber</STRONG>
Pet0517 4 0686 Jordan Announces Arresting the female Suicide Bomber Amman, Nov 13 (Petra)-- His Majesty King Abdullah II declared on Sunday the women who was supposed to bomb her self with her husband in Radisson SAS Hotel in Amman failed in her mission and now she is apprehended. Al Qaeda, led by Abu Mossab Al Zrqawi, declared earlier that four people including a women did the attacks on the three hotels in Amman. His Majesty affirmed that the Jordanian intelligence services are working hard to reveal the identities of those terrorists. King Abdullah pointed that the only way to defeat terrorism is through the coordination among all security apparatuses and governments, affirming that those terrorists have no tie with Islam but have a certain point of view against the world aims at creating a controversy between Muslims and Christians and others to blow up clashes among cultures. "The conflict is not between Jordan and Al Zarqawi, but between Al Zarqawi and Bin Laden in one hand and the ideology of the majority of Muslims in the other," King said, adding "those have an irrational way to see the world covered by religion but they have no relation with Islam as the majority of Muslims are not related to them." Speaking to the media figures who are participating in the News Agencies World Council, King Abdullah said that they have a special mission as the governments will not succeed in fighting terrorism without the media. "The media has a major role to play in the struggle against extremism and against those who are calling for the clashes among cultures.. Don't view the other as another and don't allow the extremists to use media to cast doubt toward others." King Abdullah stressed. On Amman Letter, His Majesty said that the idea of the letter was launched after the school massacre in Bislan south of Russia happened last year, therefore, the King felt that everyone must start working and say "enough" as not everyone can release a Fatwa to justify a terror action and to Takfeer others. The Monarch expressed confidence that the Islamic world and the International community will stand together to put an end for these hideous crimes, affirming that it is not allowed to tolerate with any stance with the terrorists who use politics as a plea for terrorism. Paul Tesselaar, the Director General of European Alliance of News Agencies, EANA, and the First Vice President of Itar-Tass News Agency congratulated His Majesty for the high professionalism the Jordanian security apparatuses have and for the disciplined reaction they showed after the attacks. //Petra// 131514 Local NOV 2005
