Queen Of Jordan Launches YouTube Channel

By: Mike Sachoff - April 1, 2008

Queen Rania of Jordan has launched a channel on YouTube asking people around the world to "send me your stereotypes" about the Arab world and Islam.

"In a world where it’s so easy to connect to one another, we still remain very much disconnected," Rania said in her YouTube video. "If what most people know about the Arab world and Arab people they’ve known through programs like 24 and Jack Bauer  I think there in for a very big surprise."

She is asking viewers to respond to her YouTube channel through comments and to share their opinions of the Middle East along with stereotypes they have heard about Muslims and Arabs.

So far the first video has been viewed over 100,000 times and has received 278 comments. The comments on the channel have been mixed. One supported the idea of the channel writing," We are fortunate to have the King and Queen of Jordan to interpret Arab culture in such a positive light for us in the West."

Another commenter wrote, "Most Muslims are not terrorists. But most terrorists are Muslims."

The online conversation will continue until International Youth Day on august 12.
