  • One Year of 7iber

    Written By Lina Ejeilat It was one year ago, on Jordan’s Independence Day, that we officially launched 7iber dot Com. Many a time in the past year, we stopped to look at what it is we were trying to do and how well ideas were translated into actions and results. That’s an ongoing process. But […]

  • New Tourism Report Called into Question

    Written By Dean Peters The Jordan Times is reporting that Fawwaz Khreisha of the Department of Antiquities, Samer Majali of Royal Jordanian and others have called into question the latest Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Report (TTCR ) publish by the World Economic Forum (WEF); a document that asserts Jordan’s global rank among 130 countries dropped […]

He switched between talking about establishing a Palestinian state before the end of his term, something which one participant later discredited as fantasy in the following session, and then talked about […]

  • Live Blogging: WEF Speeches

    The initial speeches by Hosni Mubarak, King Abdullah and George Bush, have just ended and everyone is breaking.

King Abdullah’s speech was similar to that of last year’s “Year of Opportunity” […]

  • What's In The Name Of A Festival?

    Written By: Saleem Ayoub Quna Reading the various commentaries and statements that were carried in the local media, in connection with changing the name of the art and culture festival from Jerash to Jordan, one would think that a major disaster has happened signaling the end of the world! Many self-acclaimed and other genuine intellectuals […]
