Eldad Calls for Jordan to Become Palestinian State on Jordan's Independence Day and gets the day wrong
Israeli activists petition for Jordan to turn on its Hashemite heritage and rise-up as a Palestinian state, Mubarak stands to risk a death penalty, a case of a child's broken finger uncovers more abuse in Jordanian schools, and a reading on Islam in Saudi Arabia- and light satire to poke fun of Western perceptions.
Racism is threatening to linger around for a long time to come, we are reminded, 6 more months to kill before the world takes its last breath, Arab Spring is the Green revolution for Jordan's environment hopefuls, and a look at Israel's point of view.

Should religion and sects be playing a big part in this Syrian saga? and Who's side should Syria's Christian community take? More on 'that' revolutionary Saudi woman, and reviews are still a'plenty on Obama's controversial speech. Can 'do' but can't 'please' it seems.

A woman in Saudi Arabia drives and all hell breaks loose, while in Syria protests take an interesting turn.

Feeding the anti-Starbucks propaganda machine with a creepy cautionary tale, on Mom's shock-and-gross-out threshold, It only happens on the streets of Jordan and Peaceful Palestinians aren't a new phenomenon.
