MEPI in Jordan

Delegations of Ambassadors for Peace from Korea, Japan, Europe, and the United States visited Jordan on several peace trips. They attended seminars organized in cooperation with Gen. Mansour Abu Rashid, chairman of the Amman Center for Peace and Development, some with the patronage of His Royal Highness, Prince Ra’ad Ben Zeid.

Briefings about the region were given by H.E. Abdul Hadi Al Majali, Speaker of the Parliament; H.E. Sabri Rbeahat, Minister for Political Development; and Dr. Ghazi Al Tayyeb, a former general and now vice president of Jordan Aviation.

Visits to the King Abdullah Mosque included explanations about Islam given by Dr. Hamdi Murad, co-founder of the Jordan Interfaith Coexistence Research Center and the Friday preacher at the mosque. Christian delegates commented afterwards that his words had helped them to see Islam in a new light. Archbishop George El Murr of the Melkite Church in Jordan also addressed delegates.
