salute Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz al-Saud (not seen) at the Maraka airport in the Jordanian capital Amman, 28 June 2007
. Talks between Saudi King Abdullah and Palestinian leader Mahmud Abbas due to take place in Jordan on the crisis in Gaza were postponed for 'lack of time', a Palestinian official said today. Jordan and Saudi Arabia yesterday warned of 'dangerous repercussions' in the Palestinian territories after Hamas's armed takeover of Gaza, saying they would continue to back efforts to restore unity.[/quote
Seems a little odd that these two brothers (Hamza & Hashem) should be at the airport welcoming & saluting the late Saudi King Abdullah to Jordan. In 1925, Abdullah's father IbnSaud (who was then an Arabian Peninsula Emir) deposed the brothers' great-great grandfather Hussein, Grand Sharif of Mecca and forced him into exile. A few years later, IbnSaud proclaimed himself king of the newly-created kingdom of Saudi Arabia. But the airport photo was taken in 2007, and I guess that time heals all wounds.
