Dear Najla,

Good luck with your research, quiet sensitive I believe. About the subject I have a book in Arabic written by Fattouh alkhatrash: History of the Saudi Yemeni Relations, published by Dhat al Salasel, 1983. It might help.

In London you can always ask the experties of Dr Madawi al Rasheed, King's College, she is an expert in the Saudi social and political structure. She is a guest in our group and hope she will participate soon.

About Jordan, it is idifficult to pin down one place. The whole country is an open museum. For Nabataean history, other Than Petra she can visit al Baida, Wadi Ramm, Khirbet al Dhureih, Nebu Mountain (Prophet Moses). For Roman history there is Jarash and Amman, for Chritian-Byzantine history there is Madaba with its magnifisent mosaics. For Islamic history there are the desert palaces, al Mashta palace. There are many other small sites or sites date to prehistoric times that might be difficult to enjoy if you are not an expert since there are no large monuments.

I hope this was helpful.

Mhmd,

Thanks for the open invitation to our members. It will be a chance for those who wish to try something different.

Latest good news in Saudi Arabia. The bylaws of the municipal elections has just been announced yesterday. It does not exempt women from participating in standing or voting. The text, luckilly, was very neutral. We have high hopes of a real women participation in this new democratic step in our country.

Salam all,

Hatoon

Dearest Hatoon,

Many thanks for setting this up and inviting me to join, Mohamed your topic
sounds fascinating as of myself well, a former Amnesty employee, currently
completing some research on saudi -yemeni relations and conflict.
I wonder if anyone can help, given my limited exposure to travels in the
Middle East, I have a Japanese freind travelling to Amman next month, to
work on a UN funded project -probably someting as ubiquotious as cultural
exchange/dialogue - any ideas of what sort of schedule we can draw up for
other than the obvious, namely Petra.

Regards

Najla
ps Hatoon would be possible to make the archieves available for members or
is it too illustrious ;)

Dear Murteza,

I'm happy to hear from you, hope that Mahsheed is well too and will update
us also with her news soon.

Mhmd's email: mmabrouk@desertmail.com
I am sure he will be very helpful.

For those who don't know Murteza, he is a Historian on the Iranian modern
history and teaches in Isfahan university.

Salam all,

Hatoon
