Jordan: In Criticising Qatar!

As a Jordanian who claims to love his country and wish all success for its citizens in their hopes and aspirations, I felt angry by Qatar's refusal to vote for prince Zeid as a potential successor for Mr Kofi Annan as Secretary General of the UN. I thought this attitude was both unhonorable and a stab in the back. However, I think the Jordanian propaganda that followed the event was pathetic and shameful. More from Batir Wardam.
