I suggest a workshop for officials and Jordanian citizens alike to understand the words ‘rule of the law’. It is because such a system is absent, everyone is going on dictating others their own version; to an MP it is scoring big fat money, to a person who falsely relies on religion to make a point it is how religious one is, to the often entertaining royal fanatics it is about how much you suck up and pretend that everything is okay.
My take on Al-Qudah is that he is not helping himself. Being a good official means doing your job brilliantly rather than get lost in media, statements, a savior’s ship, or religious talk. Besides, if he wants us to judge him by the same ‘how religious’ criteria, he’ll be breaking two rule: Humans do not judge other humans, you cannot truly know what is in ones heart so you should always look out for their deeds.
Thank you Yasmine for your insight. Indeed, there is a huge discourse between humanistic ethics and religious morals, that we are seeing very strongly these days. I agree with you; when you are paid with our tax money to create opportunities for the youth and are instead spending your time and our money evangelizing your ideals, that is not justice in my book of humanistic ethics.
