Benjamin Franklin!

Writer, Inventor, Scientist, Humorist, Statesman, Man of courage, charm, and wit… Those words were on the back cover of a book I found by chance today in the university library while searching for travel books about Jordan. The above words were enough to arise my curiosity, they describe a prominent historical figure. Can you think of a person which those words might describe? Do you believe that it is easy …

A World Wonder… Petra

Hi! It is a week exactly since my last blog, and it is exactly the (biostatistics) lab again. The computer lab today is not like the last time, it is different in the number of students present and one could simply predict the reason which is the 1st exam of this subject which will take place tomorrow. Any way, this week was the most beautiful week from not a short …

Malcolm & Martin

My Learning Mate from Saudi Arabia (P.S. He doesn’t know about my ********), who is extremely fond of Malcolm X. Malcolm to him is like Nancy Ajram to some Arab guys!. He sent me a youtube video: ‘Malcolm X: Oxford University Debate’. I have listened to some speeches of Malcolm X, but I believe that Martin Luther was more reasonable and friendly in the things he called for. For example, …

Proud To Be (Karaki)

I don’t think that you can find simple and modest old men and women else where than Karak. What is more, I like the way people deal with the strangers and foreigners, you always feel welcomed …

The Stela of Balua

This is a photo of the Stela of Balau, which I took from the museum in the Karak Castle. I have been there this morning. My big impression about this visit was “Shame”. Yes, shame. The way the employees were acting, workers who are doing repair to the castle shouting and laughing as if they were in a back city street. The working women in the museum who were eating …

Soma’h Wa Marzoog

This is a very hilarious clip showing Moses Hijazin and Hasan Ibrahim singing a funny song together. (La Aftah Lak Ilbit Sardeen). Moses is a Jordanian comic . Soma’ah -as he is widely known- was born in Smakieh. I really like Soma’h not only because he is a relative of mine (My Grand mother and his Grand mother are sisters! A very close relation, isn’t it? Somehow!), and not only …

Love Your Enemies, Silly?!

First of all, lets read from the original place that this saying had been mentioned. Mathew 5:43 43“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain …
