- The psyche of the Jordanian people, I think it's gotten to a boiling point. It hurt us when it comes to the educational system, our healthcare. Sooner or later, I think the dam is going to burst and I think this week is going to be very important for Jordanians to see, is there going to be help - not only for Syrian refugees but for their own future as well. They realize that if they don't help Jordan, it's going to be more difficult for them to deal with the refugee crisis. The international community, we've always stood shoulder to shoulder by your side. We're now asking for your help, you can't say no this time.

- The politicians come from a museum. Jordan has taken for granted the people’s fear of the regional situation to keep business as usual.

- Jordan itself is a beautiful country. It is wild, with limitless deserts where the Bedouin roam, but the mountains of the north are clothed in green forests, and where the Jordan River flows it is fertile and warm in winter. Jordan has a strange, haunting beauty and a sense of timelessness. Dotted with the ruins of empires once great, it is the last resort of yesterday in the world of tomorrow. I love every inch of it.
