I love your avatar Godiva on the last thread, Rania looks really beautiful in that picture.

And I see what you mean about her hair madonna, I guess it is more "professional" shall we say if it is cut shorter - but she seems to be growing it long at the moment.

The trouble with having hair that long it takes forever to dry, style and keep looking nice.

And I must admit I don't know what the phrase means either!

another one of Petra's not-so-brilliant attempts at summarizing a speech in a single caption.
I cant really blame them either since they cant exactly attach the entire news item to a picture. They do have a news section where you can usually find more detailed information that's obviously not available in the photo gallery.

The King's entire speech at the conclusion of the "We are all Jordan" forum can be found here

Thanks for the link Humera. So he's basically saying he's not going to ignore Palestine, Iraq and now Lebanon just because he's focused on national unity in Jordan. Yeah, Petra does have pretty weird statements sometimes but they're still pretty good as a website...they keep it updated with news about the king & queen and all and I don't think any other arab leader really has that or if they do, their website is not as nice as Petra's.

Oh, by the way Humera, your avator is gorgeous! Haya reminds me of Queen Alia in that pic :)

The singer Ihab Tawfik sings in Jordan and Queen Rania patronized it.

Thanks for the pdf links you provide Joumama. Even though I can't read the language I can still look at the pictures!

Yes that's the meaning I got from the speech as well.
I suppose, for a leader in his position and the region his country's in, this balancing act is quite important.

She looks very serious in those pics, under a bit of strain almost but then given what's going on at present that would be no surprise.

Although perhaps it's just the angle of them that create that allusion I don't know.

She looks simple, classy and understated yet again.

Heidi P. 07-30-2006 10:38 PM

She looks very good even during the most recent crisis in her region.
