Queen Rania of Jordan is a human rights activist, advocate for children, and get this… YouTube videoblogger. My friend and Arab pop culture blogger Hana from Jordan reassured me she was cool and genuinely trying to advance women issues, not just playing into the web hype. I’ll admit it, I’m a cynic but who hasn’t been the past eight years? I’m coming around. Especially after seeing the queen’s latest video. The queen proves how cool she really is. Rania does her “Top 10” on Letterman.
Queen Rania has insightful commentary on extremism, veiled women, and other Islam-related stereotypes in her interview with Fareed Zakaria on CNN. It’s really good stuff if you’re looking for some closure on the al-Queda terrorism nonsense.
