Stunning royal fleet in Jordan
• Stunning royal fleet in Jordan
King of Jordan Abdullah II - the mega-tough guy.
Firstly, it is wise. When Jordan arrived the Pope, the King kissed at a meeting of the Catholic tradition, the pope's hand. Controversial for some Islamists gesture of reconciliation was the sign for the two religions. After that, Jordan knocked tourists that brought treasury 2 billion dollars! By the way, Abdullah allocated free of hectares of land in the Jordan River for the construction of the temple and the hotel for Orthodox pilgrims.
Secondly, it is bold. After the terrorist Islamic State Air Force pilot killed Jordan, King interrupted visit to the US, came home and ordered the execution of those convicted of radical terrorism.
Third, the King fantastically beautiful and pleasant wife Rania. Educated and progressive Palestinian with European education, it may appear in public wearing jeans and a shirt. At the same time they have four children and Rania actively involved in charity work and education of their people. The Queen has a personal website, saying it is constantly overwritten with visitors and respond personally to all questions.
