Published Sunday, June 17, 2012
Jordan has entered talks with the International Monetary Fund to borrow up to $1.4 billion, Finance Minister Suleiman al-Hafez said on Saturday, to ease strained public finances in the absence of help from its richer Arab neighbors.
The request for funds comes as austerity policies are prompting street protests by citizens concerned about subsidy cuts and price hikes Ė a threat to stability in a kingdom that saw months of protests from early last year inspired by the "Arab Spring" uprisings.
$1.4 billion is less than they would spend decorating a few palaces.
It's time that Muslims retook the Islamic land of Arabia back from the corrupt false kings who pour money into weapons to kill them!
Margot a request please.
No more Al Saud PR.
I couldn't bear it today.
I'd like the thread to focus on Islamic issues and Islam teaching and Muslims and zakat rules etc
