    In 331 AD Emperor Constantine became a Christian and gave his official stamp of approval to the previously illegal religion. Suddenly everyone wanted to know about the Holy Land, and a rash of buildings, including the churches of the Holy Sepulchre and the Nativity, sprang up all over Palestine to mark sites of religious importance. But Christianity's hold over the country was not to last long - in 638 AD Jerusalem fell to Caliph Omar and was declared a Holy City of Islam, on the grounds that the Prophet Mohammed had ascended to heaven from atop the Temple Mount. Christians around the world raised their hackles at this desecration, and by 1099 they'd scrounged a crusading army together and occupied Jerusalem, murdering everyone they could get their hands on and beginning nearly 100 years of Christian rule. But by 1187 the Muslims again had the upper hand - after decades of Christian/Muslim scuffling, the Islamic Mamluks knocked over the last Crusader stronghold in 1291. The next 500 years were some of the quietest Palestine has seen. Empires rose and fell, and control of the country changed hands with monotonous regularity, eventually coming to rest in the hands of the Ottoman Empire. Much of desert Jordan sidestepped all this change and remained a Bedouin stronghold.

    Jordan History
    Jordan has been subject to many invasions throughout its history. The most significant were those by Muslim Arabs in the 7th century AD and the Ottoman Empire in the 16th century. During World War I, at the instigation of Great Britain, a rebellion against the Ottoman rulers began, with T. E. Lawrence playing an important role in the campaign. After the Ottoman Empire collapsed at the end of war, rebel leaders were recognized as the new government by the Allies. Partial independence was granted by the British in 1923: Full independence would wait until 1946. In 1999 Jordan's longtime ruler King Hussein died. His son Abdullah succeeded him and has inherited the country's many problems, including rapid population growth, high unemployment and a high rate of urban migration.

    BASIC INFO. ECONOMY GEOGRAPHY ... JORDAN Jordan was created out of the greater mandated Palestine following World War I. The British saw an opportunity to appease Abdullah, a son of Hussein ibn Ali, who was ruler of the Hejaz in Arabia. In 1923, the Kingdom of Transjordan was carved out of the area of mandated Palestine and the Hashemite dynasty began. Though Transjordan was an Allies supporter during World War II, in 1948 the country joined the Arab League, changed its name to Jordan. and participated in the 1948 war with Israel. As a consequence of this conflict, Jordan gained territory: the West Bank and the Old City of Jerusalem which were annexed n 1950. Many of the Arab refugees from that war were placed in camps in the West Bank and the population of Jordan is today, overwhelmingly Palestinian. The late King Hussein came to the throne in 1952 following the assassination of his grandfather, King Abdullah and the abdication of his father due to mental illness. Hussein went to war against Israel once again in 1967. The Six Day War left Israel in control of the West Bank and east Jerusalem, along with other territories seized from Egypt and Syria. Though Jordan had once hoped to remain the negotiator for the Palestinians in the matters of territory, it was forced to cede that power to the PLO under Yassir Arafat. Jordan has made some questionable decisions over the years including its opposition to the Camp David accords and the Egypt-Israel peace treaty and its support of Saddam Hussein during the Gulf War in 1991. But its charismatic king and policies that appeared to Western eyes as moderate, particularly when compared with its more radical neighbors, has helped Jordan to be viewed favorably by the US. And, Jordan's decision to make a formal peace with Israel in 1994, also earned the country renewed respect. Hussein's death in 1999 resulted in the ascension to the throne of his son, Abdullah who has pledged to continue his father's efforts on behalf of peace.

    Jordan - History
    Palestine (including the present-day West Bank of Jordan) and Transjordan (the East Bank) were formerly parts of Turkey´s Ottoman Empire.
    During the First World War (1914-18), when Turkey was allied with Germany, the Arabs under Ottoman rule rebelled. British forces, with Arab support, occupied Palestine and Transjordan in 1917-18, when the Turks withdrew.
    When the British Government terminated its mandate in Palestine in May 1948, Jewish leaders in the area proclaimed the State of Israel, but Palestinian Arabs, supported by the armies of Arab states, opposed Israeli claims and hostilities continued until July.
    Transjordan's forces occupied about 5,900 sq km of Palestine, including East Jerusalem, and this was confirmed by the armistice with Israel in April 1949. In June the country was renamed Jordan, and in April 1950, following a referendum, King Abdullah formally annexed the West Bank territory, which contained many Arab refugees from Israeli-held areas.
    In July 1951 King Abdullah was assassinated in Jerusalem by a Palestinian Arab belonging to an extremist Islamic organization. The murdered king was succeeded by his eldest son, Talal ibn Abdullah, hitherto Crown Prince.

    history of the southern weyrs
    and far jordan weyr View Timeline Beginning in the last one hundred Turns of the Long Interval, it had become a custom for Northern weyrs to send their riders to train in the Southern Continent. But as the Pass neared, this negligible practice took a more serious turn as the Weyrs deliberated on how to protect two whole continents. But there was no equivocal decision. As late as 1223 the Weyrleaders' Council was still marred by politics and long-standing disagreements between the Weyrs. Outside of this, the Lord Holders and Craftmasters were of no help, either. Short-sighted and stubborn, they quickly dismissed notions of Thread. Meanwhile, Igen, under the conscientious leadership of B'col and Visaya, decided to make their move, frustrated by the paralysis of the Council. In a momentous instance of chance, a young Igen Wingsecond discovered the ancient crater on Jordan Island in 1224. Igen acted immediately. The "jungle weyr," as it was first called, was soon stationed with at least two fighting wings at a time, sometimes accompanied by a Weyrling's wing or fellow full-force wings from other weyrs. Several such "stations" emerged along the spine of the Southern Continent. Ista established one near Triyane, Fort near Ierne, High Reaches and Telgar near Macedon, Benden across the waters from Azov Island. But only when Thread fell in 1258 that the Weyrleader's Council finally decide to act. Desperate and under pressure, a decision came down that the weyr stations throughout the Southern Continent were to be converted into "real" weyrs. Of the five stations, Ierne, Macedon, and Far Jordan were finally chosen.

    Jordan History and Government
    History The Nabataeans were the first known inhabitants of the area that is now Jordan. The Romans absorbed it into their empire, as part of the province of Arabia, in AD 106. Shortly after the death of the Prophet Muhammad in AD 632, Arab armies entered the region and established the Umayyad dynasty. However, this became something of a provincial backwater after the conquest of Baghdad. During the 11th and 12th centuries, Jordan was the scene of some of the major conflicts between the Christian Crusaders and Islamic forces. Salah ad Din (known in the West as Saladin) and his successors ruled Jordan from his main seat of power in Egypt from the late 12th century until they were displaced by the Mamluks, a race of mostly Kurdish and Circassian origin. The Mamluks repelled the Mongol invasion of the 14th century but were eventually overthrown by the Ottoman Turks in 1517. Jordan was governed along with modern-day Palestine and Syria as a single administrative entity (called a

The term "Fertile Crescent" was coined by University of Chicago archeologist James Henry Breasted. Watered by the Jordan, Euphrates and Tigris rivers and covering some 400-500,000 sq. km. with a population of 40-50 million, the region extends from the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea around the north of the Syrian Desert and through the Jazirah and Mesopotamia to the Persian Gulf.

A pragmatic ruler, he successfully navigated competing pressures from the major powers (US, USSR, and UK), various Arab states, Israel, and a large internal Palestinian population, through several wars and coup attempts. In 1989 he resumed parliamentary elections and gradually permitted political liberalization; in 1994 a formal peace treaty was signed with Israel.

    History The territory constituting modern Jordan was the site of some of the earliest settlements and political entities known to historians. The Ammonites and the kingdoms of Edom, Gilead, and Moab, situated east of the Jordan River, are referred to repeatedly in the Bible. These kingdoms were successively conquered by, or made tributary to, the Egyptians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, and Romans. Jordan was wrested from the Byzantine Empire by the Arabs between 633 and 636 and has since remained an Arab-Islamic country. During the Crusades parts of Jordan were governed by Christians. From 1517 until 1918 Jordan was ruled by the Ottomans (see Ottoman Empire).

    Archibald Campbell (A.C.) Jordan
    It was during 1940s that Jordan became involved in a number of organizations and movements such as the Non-European Unity Movement. He was a founding member of the Society of Young Africa. He was active in the establishment of a loan bursary fund for needy children in the Cape community and championed the cause of the needy in Langa and Nyanga. Jordan worked as a lecturer in Bantu Languages at Fort Hare in 1945. He spent the bulk of his teaching career at the University of Cape Town where he received his PhD in 1957 and served as a lectuer from 1946-1962. He developed a new method of teaching Xhosa to non-speakers. In 1960, he was awarded a Carnegie travelling scholarship but was denied travel documents. He supported the general strike from that brought about the events in Sharpeville. By 1962, Jordan was forced into exile. He sought residence in Tanganyika (Tanzania), the United Kingdom, and the United States. He continued to lecture abroad. In 1963, he became a professor at the University of Wisconsin (U.S.) where he taught African Languages and Literature until his death in 1968. Despite his untimely death, Jordan had a prolific academic and literary career. As a pioneer in Bantu languages and literature, he wrote much of his creative writings in Xhosa, his mother tongue. He authored several articles and manuscripts. His most famous work is

    The Jordan Headquarters at Silverstone. Jordan Grand Prix. Jordan Grand Prix, founded in 1991 by flamboyant Irishman Eddie Jordan, has brought colour and a sense of humour to Formula One. In only a decade in the business, the team has also produced impressive results, notably three race wins, six front rows and eleven podiums in the last three years. In 1998 the team broke the top four strangle-hold of Ferrari, Williams, McLaren and Benetton which had stood since 1989; in 1999 Jordan went one better – beating two former world champions, Williams and Benetton, to leave only the might of Ferrari and McLaren un-challenged. In 2000, Jordan was the only team to join McLaren and Ferrari on the front row of the grid, but the team suffered reliability problems which, allied to much bad luck, saw it slip to sixth in the Championship. Jordan Grand Prix is based in England at a purpose built factory across the road from the Silverstone circuit in Northamptonshire which in 2001 has expanded to house ever growing departments and staff numbers. The team’s wind tunnel is housed in nearby Brackley, five miles from Jordan’s headquarters. From just 43 employees in its first season, the team employs around 250 staff whilst its budgets have increased 800 percent over the past ten years. The factory will be expanded in 2001 to include two mezzanine levels. Development of the team also sees Jordan running a two car test programme in 2001 for the first time in its history. Jordan enjoys financial backing from title sponsor Benson and Hedges, plus Deutsche Post and a further twenty sponsors plus equity investment from investment bank Warburg, Pincus.1 In addition, the team now benefits from the experience of Honda who provide works engines. This support enables Jordan to invest in the very latest technologies necessary to become a powerful force within Formula One.

      [Upload image] JORDAN'S LOCATION AS a buffer zone between the settled region of the Mediterranean littoral west of the Jordan River and the major part of the desert to the east contributed significantly to the country's experience in ancient and more recent times. Until 1921 however Jordan had a history as a vaguely defined territory without a separate political identity. Its earlier history closely associated with the religions of Judaism Christianity and Islam therefore comes under the histories of the contending empires of which it often formed a part. By the time the area was conquered by the Ottoman Empire in the sixteenth century the inhabitants of three general geographic regions had developed distinct loyalties. The villagers and town dwellers of Palestine west of the Jordan River were oriented to the major cities and ports of the coast. In the north of presentday Jordan scattered villagers and tribesmen associated themselves with Syria while the tribesmen of southern Jordan were oriented toward the Arabian Peninsula. Although most of the populace were Arab Muslims the integration of peoples with such differing backgrounds and regional characteristics hampered the creation of a cohesive society and state. In 1921 the Amirate of Transjordan was established under British patronage on the East Bank by the Hashimite (also seen as Hashemite) prince Abdullah ibn Hussein Al Hashimi who had been one of the principal figures of the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Empire during World War I. Direct British administration was established in Palestine where Britain (in the Balfour Declaration of 1917) had pledged to implement the founding of a Jewish homeland.

    History of the Internet
    As with so many important creations, the Internet was a product of multiple elements, originally conceived to solve one problem, and eventually finding a path of its own.
    The Cold War spawned the first network experiments in the United States, thanks to the launch of Sputnik, and the paranoia that Russia would soon fill space with killer satellites and destroy the U.S. President Eisenhower commissioned ARPA in the same year the Interstate Highway System was born... in fact, the origin of the phrase "Information Superhighway" was that it was most likely coined by then-Secretary of Transportation Al Gore, Sr. (So you see, Vice President Al Gore, Jr. may have had a hereditary claim on the phrase after all...)
    Elements that would someday form the backbone of the Internet... e-mail, TCP/IP, ethernet, USENET, hypertext, and browsers... developed separately over the space of 35 years. But generally speaking, the year 1993 will be remembered as the year the first graphical Web Browser, Mosaic, was created. At that point, all elements rapidly came together to form the World Wide Web we know today.
    Since 1993, as it has revolutionalized worldwide communications, the Web has grown like a proverbial weed, and evolved in ways no one could have predicted. As some countries expounded on its liberating aspects, other countries cut off their citizens from its access. Opening international commerce boundaries brought incredible opportunities, but less reputable elements quickly stepped in to take advantage of the new, barely-regulated medium.
