Volunteering in Jordan

Angela Corrias (@GlobalReporting), a cool friend I know from Twitter made an interview with me and my friend Mohammed Youssef (@jawazsafar), she wrote an article about Volunteering in Jordan. Here’s a preview..

I recently met up with Jordanian blogger and social activistAli Dahmash and Mohammad Yousef, a Jordanian engineer living in Ryadh, to talk about social issues affecting their country.

“Let’s start with some figures,” Ali said. “Jordan has the highest number of Palestinian refugees: around two million. With the Iraq war, Jordan has been hosting more than 500,000 Iraqi refugees. Poverty levels reach 13% and 50% of the population is under 30.”

    I am starting to believe Obama’s will curry favor with the Muslim world is to simply give it time to develop into a super caliphate that will subjugate Europe and ruin Israel.

    I don’t leave a comment, but I looked at a bunch of remarks on this page Under My Olive Tree » Volunteering in Jordan. I do have a couple of questions for you if you don’t mind. Is it just me or does it appear like some of the responses appear as if they are written by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are posting on additional sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you post a list of all of your shared sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
