FESTIVAL…

Un eveniment cultural   care are loc aici inca din 1981 in fiecare vara timp de trei saptamani , este Festivalul de arta si cultura de la Jerash …acum este in plina desfasurare …Jerash Festival(مهرجان جرش)

muzica,spectacole de teatru pentru cei mici si cei mari, festivalul este considerat ca una din cele mai mari activitati culturale din regiune la care participa si membri ai familiei regale…

artisti din zona araba…

Jerash este un oras antic greco-roman unul din cele mai bine conservate din Orientul Apropiat… a fost locuit inca din timpul epocii bronzului si a avut perioade in care s-a dezvoltat economic si a prosperat(in perioadele de pace)

Astazi ,orasul este o atractie turistica…situat la nord de capitala Amman cam la 40 de km spre  Siria…

are o Universitate privata,o populatie de etnii diverse(cerchezi,armeni…palestinieni,iordanieni,sirieni…)si un procent insemnat de crestini…

Anul acesta participarea publicului la festival a depasit asteptarile organizatorilor cu toate ca unii au vrut sa boicoteze evenimentul din cauza situatiei din Siria si sentimentele au fost amestecate…spun cei de la

Jordan Times

la unele concerte Teatrul de la Jerash a fost supraaglomerat…

multi turisti veniti din tarile din Golf …in orasul care are peste un milion de maslini…dar si un hipodrom de pe vremea romanilor

Nici noi nu am fost anul acesta…

TENEBRELE INTERNETULUI

O sedinta la scoala fiicei mele …

problema nu e noua..

.Ministerul Tehnologiei si Comunicatiilor va lansa o campanie de protejare pentru copiii care utilizeaza internetul si care pot cadea cu usurinta victime pradatorilor online..

initiativa de a bloca site-urile pornografice…mijloacele de filtrare…

sunt implicati elevi,parinti,parteneri

Campania va ajuta la educarea copiilor,cum sa foloseasca internetul ,cum sa fie atenti…

va fi in cooperare cu UNICEF,agentii locale si internationale care lucreaza in domeniul protectiei copiilor si a drepturilor de familie si va fi numit „net sigur pentru copii”(a anuntat si Jordan Time)

Nu-mi imaginez cine sunt cei care vor sa santajeze copiii dar nici nu inteleg de ce si-ar posta poze nud copiii…si multe altele…

M-am tot gandit la chestia asta …din moment ce se porneste o campanie inseamna ca au fost victime intr-adevar…

M-am dat si eu la citit materiale despre internet,despre pericole…o alta fatza…

cred ca trebuie sa stim…

aici un material foarte interesant:despre internetul vizibil si invizibil

„Cum ar fi dacă ai afla că Internetul pe care îţi petreci zilnic timpul nu este decât o mică parte dintr-un întreg mult mai vast şi, în cea mai mare parte, mai întunecat? Cum ar fi dacă ceea ce credeai că ştii despre Internet se dovedeşte a fi doar o mică parte din ceea ce ESTE cu adevărat Internetul? Cum ar fi dacă ţi-aş spune că există un Internet “ascuns”, care cuprinde de câteva sute de ori mai multă informaţie brută decât Internetul “vizibil”? Păi… e adevărat. Există un astfel de Internet.”

adica sa ne facem o idee…cam cat stim despre internet…

Nu stiu daca are sau nu fetze ascunse…cred ca trebuie sa avem noi parintii grija pe unde ne umbla online odraslele noastre …sa le explicam …

ca navigand pe net poti ajunge prin locuri unde chiar nu ai ce cauta…

IARNA NU S-A TERMINAT …

Din 17 februarie un frig strasnic a stapanit Iordania…

Toata lumea s-a bucurat de zapada …(asta fiind a doua oara cand a nins in aceasta iarna)mai ales ca aici este foarte uscat vara … din urma zapezilor si ploilor s-au adunat in baraj multe milioane de metri cubi de apa cu care se vor iriga culturile la vara cand va fi nespus de fierbinte …partea buna a lucrurilor,ca desigur au fost si altele…

-vantul grozav de rece si puternic a spulberat zapada si au fost drumuri blocate

-450 de turisti straini au fost salvati la Petra unde ramasesera blocati

-in unele locuri reteaua electrica a cedat din cauza suprasolicitarii ,pentru ca atunci cand este frig oamenii folosesc tot felul de sobe electrice pentru incalzirea caselor…

Mi-am amintit de o vorba :

„Iarna nu-i ca vara”!

As mai putea spune ca frigul din Orient este si el diferit de cel din Europa…cu alte cuvinte s-a dardait ,frigul ne-a muscat chiar si  pe langa sobe…

s-a tusit (Tusea-n fa major din Traviata) si s-a baut sirop de busuioc …si alte leacuri pentru raceala care ne-a luat pe toti…

Astazi a iesit soarele si la mine s-a uscat pe afara…doar dimineata este inghetat…

Dar eu  bucur ca s-a terminat cu greva profesorilor si s-au deschis scolile…or fi ajuns la un consens cu guvernul cred…da si frigul a fost contra…

„As teachers ‘strike ends ,debate on make -up classes begins”

Pana vor recupera toata materia ,va dura ceva timp…

ZILE „ZGOMOTOASE”…

De ieri ni se „cutremura”casele ,si geamurile  zdrangane parca cu tot cu cercevelele alea …prima data am crezut ca e cutremur adevarat…dar am aflat ca ni se trage de la vecinii din Israel care au o activitate acolo …deminarea unei zone …asa se zice…

Problema e ca ne aflam la ceva distanta si totusi zgomotele sunt asa de mari…m-am gandit ca orice ar fi ,de fapt noi ne aflam „la mijloc de codru des”…in caz de…si de regula aflam ultimii ce se intampla cu adevarat.

AMMAN – ‘Booming sounds result of Israeli de-mining activities’

„A informed source on Wednesday said that the sounds of explosions citizens heard yesterday were the result of an “ordinary” activity carried out by the Israelis to remove mines in the area opposite the King Hussein Bridge and the Baptism Site.

The source noted that the de-mining activities will continue today.”(Jordan Times)

‘Kingdom seeks to be a model of democracy in the region’

Majestatea Sa Regele Abdullah a anuntat joi ca ,Iordania doreşte să devină un model de democraţie în lumea arabă, menţionând că, aceasta este construită prin consolidarea clasei de mijloc, creşterea participării sale la viaţa politică şi economică ,şi rolul său în susţinerea procesului democratic.

AMMAN (JT) – His Majesty King Abdullah on Thursday said Jordan seeks to become a model of democracy in the Arab world, noting that this is built through strengthening the middle class, increasing its participation in political and economic life and bolstering its role in the democratic process.

In an interview with US National Public Radio conducted by Steve Inskeep and aired Thursday, King Abdullah said the monarchy provides the right platform towards a true democratic system.

“We want to be… an example for the rest of the Arab world. I think if a monarchy… can show a new democratic platform, then I think we’ll be a symbol for other countries,” King Abdullah said.

In reply to a question on what it is like to be a king of an Arab state at a time of revolution, the Monarch said: “I think that we have been trying to push reform, there has been a lot of pushback… And what the Arab Spring or the Arab Awakening did was bring in the subject front and centre.”

“In Jordan, we created a National Dialogue Committee. We went on outreach with everybody, came to a consensus. We changed a lot of laws. At the moment, the Constitution is being amended… by both Chambers. We’re announcing municipal elections at the end of the year and national elections… next year,” the King said.

In the interview, conducted in tandem with his participation in the 66th United Nations General Assembly in New York, King Abdullah said the key challenge is to create a political culture based on political party platforms – left, right or centre.

“My vision for Jordan is two to five political parties representing left, right and centre as quickly as possible,” King Abdullah said.

The Monarch stressed his belief that governments should be formed through elections, saying: “There is a tendency for a lot of officials to hide behind the King, and it’s about time that officials take their responsibility and are responsible in front of the people. Because today, if you’re appointed by the King, they don’t feel that they’re responsible for the people. If you have a government that is elected, they need to do the hard work – because if they don’t, they won’t be around next time the ballot box is open.”

The King also emphasised that the protests taking place in different places in the Arab world are a result of despair.

“We’ve got to remember that the Arab Spring began… because of economic difficulties: unemployment, poverty. We have the largest youth cohort in history coming into the workforce in the Middle East. That is how the Arab Spring started. I mean, Tunis started because of economy, not because of politics,” the King told Inskeep.

“What keeps me up at night is poverty and unemployment. We have in the past 10 years managed to establish a credible middle class, but any shift in oil prices, economic challenges – that middle class becomes very fragile,” the King added.

On the Palestinian question, King Abdullah said the Palestinians’ bid for statehood, about which some countries have concerns, “came out of desperation and frustration because nothing was happening at the negotiating table”.

“Our response has been: ‘Well, let’s then make an effort to get the Israelis and the Palestinians to sit around the table’.”

If that does not happen, we only have ourselves to blame for this crisis, the King said.

The King thanked the European Union for its efforts trying to find a mechanism that pleases everybody… by asking for statehood in a way that involves a technical process that gives some time to allow Israelis and Palestinians to sit at the table and relaunch negotiations on final-status issues.

In reply to a question on Jordan’s relations with Israel and the possibility of degrading their level like Turkey, the King said: “If we have a very negative impact coming out of the United Nations – in other words that the Palestinians are really short-handed on this issue, then that will have a negative impact on the region.”

In this regard, King Abdullah referred to what happened in Egypt with the attack on the Israeli embassy.

“We have peace with Israel… So there is going to be immense pressure and people asking, ‘Why are we having this relationship when it’s not benefiting anybody?’”

“There are going to be a lot of questions, not just in my country, but across the Middle East. Is Israel going to continue to be ‘Fortress Israel’? Or… become accepted into the neighbourhood, which I believe is the only way we can move forward in harmony,” King Abdullah said.

“No matter what’s happening in the Middle East – the Arab Spring, et cetera, the economic challenges, high rates of unemployment – the emotional, critical issue is always the Israeli-Palestinian one,” the King noted.

With regard to what is happening in Syria, the King said: “I don’t see much change in the immediate future.”

“No expert in the world now can predict what’s happening in the Middle East. Things are happening too quickly, and the area is changing so rapidly that we really don’t know,” he added.

Aqaba, Dead Sea hotels fully booked for holiday

Dead Sea hotels and recreational facilities are among top destinations for Eid vacationers

By Khetam Malkawi

AMMAN – Hotels in Aqaba and at the Dead Sea are packed for the Eid Al Fitr vacation, with Jordanians and Arab Israelis topping the list of customers.

Hotels in both areas reported 100 per cent occupancy rate for the August 30-September 2 holiday marking the end of the fasting month of Ramadan.

“Although the accommodation prices are higher in some hotels because of the peak season, demand is very high during the Eid, especially for the second day,” Salah Bitar, president of Aqaba Hotels Association, told The Jordan Times.

He noted that some beach hotels have increased accommodation prices by 120 per cent, “but still the demand is high”.

The Dead Sea hotels will have their share of Jordanian vacationers this week, according to hoteliers contacted by The Jordan Times.

“Despite the hike in accommodation fees, we have no single empty room,” said a source from the Dead Sea Holiday Inn hotel.

He added that a night’s stay at the Dead Sea hotels costs from JD120 up to JD411.

“This is expensive, but all rooms are booked,” said the sources who also noted that the majority of vacationers during the Eid are Jordanians and Arab Israelis.

Nasser Tayeh from the Dead Sea Spa Hotel also said the hotel is fully occupied.

“Although the weather is hot these days, people still favour seaside areas,” Tayeh said.

For Omar Hassan, the short vacation encourages him to stay in town.

“Though prices at the Dead Sea are higher during the peak season, I had to stay here in order not to waste the short vacation in airports,” Hassan said yesterday.

However, demand on the seaside areas left Petra with no vacationers, according to Fawwaz Hasanat, president of Petra’s Hotels Association.

“There is one major reason that prevents Jordanians from coming to Petra during the Eid, which is the absence of facilities and activities,” Hasanat told The Jordan Times over the phone yesterday, adding: “We almost have no visitors in Petra, neither Jordanians, nor foreigners.”

PROTESTATARII DIN IORDANIA AU CERUT EXPULZAREA AMBASADORULUI SIRIEI LA AMMAN

Protesters demand expulsion of Syrian ambassador

By Muath Freij

AMMAN – Hundreds of protesters gathered outside the Syrian embassy in Amman on Wednesday night demanding the expulsion of the ambassador.

Jordanians were joined by tens of Syrian residing in the Kingdom to condemn the “the regime’s crimes against peaceful protesters and the killing of civilians” and to say what is happening in the neighbouring country has caused suffering to a majority of Jordanians.

“Jordanians and Syrians are brothers and what hurts them hurts us here,” Nasir Zu’bi told The Jordan Times during the protest, organised by the recently formed Jordanian commission to support Syrians against the “bloody massacres carried out by the Syrian regime”.

“I always pray for them and I hope that God will help them achieve their goals,” the Ramtha resident said.

Many protesters echoed Zu’bi sentiment, expressing hope that the violence in Syria will end soon, but with the removal of President Bashar Assad’s regime.

After performing taraweeh prayers in front of the embassy, participants chanted slogans demanding the expulsion of the Syrian ambassador as he represents the “cruel regime”.

Khaled Zaloum said that taking part in the protest is the least he can do to support pro-reform and democracy seekers in Syria.

“When Syrians hear that protests are being organised in solidarity with them, they will be more determined with their pursuit of freedom and dignity,” he stressed, adding there is no difference between Jordanians and Syrians as their traditions and heritage are the same.

Abdul Rahman Mohammad agreed, noting that he felt committed to taking part in this demonstration to denounce the bloody scenes he watched on television.

“I could not stand watching the bloodshed,” he pointed out.

Meanwhile, Syrians expressed their gratitude to Jordanians for their support.

Mohammad Salhi, who held a Syrian flag, explained that these protests reflect Jordanians’ “warm” feelings towards their Syrian brothers.

He said he has not been able to go back home and check on his relatives since the violence broke out.

His friend Mohammad Rifai, a Daraa resident, said he was forced to leave the city after the violent crackdown on protesters by security forces.

“Sooner or later we will gain our freedom,” he insisted.

Students protest against university fees and admission criteria in front of the University of Jordan in Amman

By Laila Azzeh

AMMAN – Holding banners criticising university admission criteria and „high fees”, tens of university and high school students gathered in front of the University of Jordan (UJ) on Wednesday.

During the sit-in, organised by the National Campaign for Defending Students Rights (Thabahtoona), the School Students Union (Ajyal) and Tawjihi (General Secondary School Certificate) students, the protesters carried banners that read: „Education is not just for the rich,” „Education is inspiration not money” and „79 per cent of university students are exceptions.”

Ordinary students, who are not included in any exception lists, cannot enter a university like UJ with a Tawjihi score less that 90,” Mohammad Abu Rizq told The Jordan Times, charging that those with lower grades have no other choice but to „drain their families’ pockets”.

„And the irony is that more than 79 per cent of public university students are those with low Tawjihi scores, but they are fortunate enough to enrol in universities because of their good contacts,” he stressed.

Fakher Daas, Thabahtoona coordinator, claimed that students who enter universities through competition do not exceed 21 per cent of the total.

„There should be an exception to every rule, but when exceptions become the rule, it means that something wrong is going on,” he said, adding that the majority of students enter university through „wasta” (favouritism).

„The parallel programmes at universities are so expensive that sometimes parents find that sending their children abroad is cheaper,” he charged.

Abrar Kawa, a second-year university student agreed, noting that she had to find a job to help her father with the university fees.

The 20-year-old accounting student said she pays JD60 per credit hour.

According to Thabahtoona, the current public university fees are much more than any „ordinary” citizen can afford, with a 125 per cent increase for medicine at the UJ, and JD85 per credit hour at the Hashemite University‘s medical faculty.

Similar protests have been held since the completion of this year’s Tawjihi summer session exams, with students pledging to continue making their voices heard until some of their demands are met.

”We want all competent students to have a chance to enter public universities according to fair standards,” Watan Nibali remarked.
