    I advise every citizen to read the report of the Audit Bureau of 2014, or at least browse its most prominent results, to see the violations committed in ministries and official institutions, in a manner that reveals the mentality that administers some of our public concern, and controls taxpayers' money; through wasting or control.

    Only during yesterday, we were on a date with three student fights. Firstly, in the Al al-Bayt University, where crowds of students were massing on the back of a tribal conflict, while there was a security alert. And the second was in Muata University. While alZitouna University suspended classes — like the International Islamic University of Science announced a few days ago — because of a tribal brawl, too.

    For years, any person boarding a high rise in Amman and declaration of his intention to commit suicide was enough to alert the local media, sending reporters and photographers to the scene to document the event.

    Thu 23 April / Apr 2015. 11:03 AM
    In relation to the internal reasons that have been addressed in the previous article, in relation to the failure in investing the Jordanian regional edge – security and stability – in economy, the common denominator seems to be the lack of interest by successive governments during the past five years in forming a real harmonious, economic government team.
