A King's visit shouldn't block Jordan's Roads!!! طرق الأردن مغلقة بسبب زيارة

Our lives are as precious as those of kings, nothing less...

Even if this man is the Saudi King... ya3ni this is far too much... Why should people suffer, the following cases I've just heard at work due to road blockage in Amman... For those of you who don't know, the Saudi King came to visit Jordan and people suffered traffic jams for hours all over, cause roads should be blocked only for one man to pass!!!

Ok first and kind of worst... a young man had to go to hospital for (ghaseel Kela) how the hill do you translate that... Anyway, his father takes him only to be stopped to wait in pain, the police makes him wait regardless of his situation... This is something I know about what about all the emergency cases that had to take medication or undergo life saving operations, who will be held responsible for their lives?!? Why is it that no one speaks in the newspapers about this?!?

One lady parks her car walks two hours to get to her home in the heat of the day and is actually happy she did because other people stayed for longer hours trapped in traffic...

A university student, misses class after staying in transportation for more than 90 minutes...

I'm not against hospitality but this is not right and I never heard of anything like this... I'm sure there are thousands if not millions of other stories, much more serious ones that are left untold...

What about the business deals that were delayed or cancelled because someone couldn't come to a meeting... What about the tears of children left in nurseries without someone to pick them up... what about all the burnt fuel... people left in the sun...

Who will take responsibility for upsetting the lives of hundreds of thousands if not millions... what kind of security is that, if it upsets the security of a country... Who is responsible not only before men but before God for all of this...

We are not made to be tread upon, not even by kings of oil and power...
