  2. And .. so what good has been done by this demonstration?

    I have heard a bit about some demonstrations that are going on in al rabyah which have turned uncivilized but never got to see or read about what has happened.

    You have got some very good photography skills, thanks for sharing your photos with us.

    looking forward to read part 2.

  3. I know someone who was in in last Friday's Rabieh demonstration and the one before it. He said the riot police attacked the demonstrators first in both cases. Is that true ?

  5. Thanks for posting these pictures Jad, I was looking over the net for some good ones. Though I do respect Jordan police and public security but there actions during the protest was very stupid and ignorant.
