Arabs lavish jewels on Secretary of State Rice

Associated Press 2008/12/22

President George W. Bush's foreign policies may be unpopular in the Middle East, but Arab leaders showered his top diplomat with jewelry worth far more than a quarter of a million dollars last year.

While Bush himself didn't fare nearly as well, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice raked in at least $316,000 in gem-encrusted baubles from the kings of Jordan and Saudi Arabia alone, making her one of top recipients among U.S. officials of gifts from foreign heads of state and government and their aides in 2007. In January, Jordan's King Abdullah II gave Rice an emerald and diamond necklace, ring, bracelet and earrings estimated to be worth $147,000, according to the State Department's annual inventory of such items released Monday just in time for Christmas. The king and his wife, Queen Rania, also gave Rice a less expensive necklace and earrings along with a jewelry box valued at $4,630, the document shows. ...

The End of WMDs 2008/12/19

...This week I was privileged to join a distinguished group of 100 international political, military, business and civic leaders in Paris to launch Global Zero (, a campaign to mobilize decisive momentum for the global elimination of nuclear weapons. Global Zero is combining public outreach with high-level policy work to develop a step-by-step plan for phased, verified reduction of the world's estimated 27,000 nuclear weapons down to zero. ...My husband King Hussein, a Hashemite direct descendant of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), steadfastly called for removing nuclear weapons from the Middle East, calling them "One of the most dramatic examples of the gaps between the world's technological progress and moral rectitude." "Nuclear war is not a military problem. It is a moral dilemma," he said. In my husband's last interview before his death he underscored the threat of terrorism, the potential availability of WMD and our responsibility to future generations to increase control over them. And, he emphasized over and over again that only through dialogue and truly listening and trying to understand each other's perspectives, fears and needs would we find solutions to the issues that divide us. Global Zero is helping to facilitate that dialogue, and with it a path to peace. ...

MKO invites Jordan MPs to Paris confab

PressTV 2008-12-3

The daily Al-Arab al-Youm reported Wednesday that over 35 Jordanian parliamentarians have received invitations to take part in a conference headed by MKO leader Maryam Rajavi. One lawmaker Abdullah al-Jazi said upon receiving the invitation he had made it clear that he did not intend to attend the conference. According to the report, 25 members of the Jordanian parliament have so far accepted the invite. This is the third time that the outlawed organization extends invitations to Jordanian parliamentarians. Earlier in September when 33 Jordanian officials participated in an MKO-organized rally in Paris, the Hashemite Kingdom's Foreign Ministry was quick to reject any shift in Amman's position on the terrorist organization. "Jordan has not changed its position on the Mujahedin Khalq Organization. The participation of Jordanians in a conference organized by the MKO was an individual decision and does not reflect the official Jordanian stand," Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Nassar Habashneh was quoted as saying. ...


WIPO International Seminar Urges Arab Countries for More R&D Development

ag-IP News 2008/12/3

...Tackling the same issue of Research and Technology Development in the Arab region was Dr. Bashar Khasawneh, director of Research Programs at King Abdullah II Design and Development Bureau, who started his presentation by stating some figures: "Scientific publications in the Arab world amount to 1.1% of the worlds publications, where 6,500 books are published by Arab writers, compared to 102,000 in North America.""Ironically, Arab states are spending more on military needs than on R&D for defense purposes; however, they are not realizing that it is the R&D, innovations, science and technology that we should invest in to create a concrete defense mechanism," he added. Speaking about Jordan and R&D, Khasawneh clarified that 3% of R&D funding is coming from the private sector while 79% is from the public sector, adding, This means that there is so little solid faith in our potentials to be creative and innovative that the private sector is not devoting enough financial resources to enhance the R&D field. Khasawneh, in his presentation, mentioned some of the solutions for boosting R&D that include reforming the education system to promote scientific enquiry and critical thinking; establishing excellence centers and technology incubators; creating and funding patent registration services and launching awareness campaigns. "Governments should establish national research agendas with the priority of funding and supporting R&D; meanwhile, academic and research centers could contribute to the enhancement of R&D by stopping the brain-drain process and becoming talent magnets, gauging national needs for university disciplines and strengthening industry-university ties," he elaborated. ...Meanwhile, the second day of the five-day seminar highlighted other issues, mainly the valuation of Intellectual Property (IP) assets and development of a national IP strategy in addition to the role of the private sector in promoting respect for IP rights. In this regard, Hams Madanat, executive director of Internal Training and Continuous Education at Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Organization (TAG-Org) explained the private sectors corporate social responsibility to raise awareness among the public in respect of the importance of IP and the need to respect and maintain IP rights. "When coupled with a solid legislative system and a conducive research and development environment, IP shall create an infrastructure for a strong, ever-evolving knowledge-based economy," she stated. ...
