Rania vs Asma

May 10th, 2009 · 12 Comments · Commentary

jor-queen-rania-smn27123810587_4573So Queen Rania is on Twitter (@queenrania). She’s been flying around in her husband’s helicopter, meeting the Pope, talking about changing the world. But Syria isn’t far behind.

First Lady Asma Al-Assad may not be on Twitter, but she’s on Facebook. While her southern counterpart has been having fun doing acrobatics in helicopters and calling her husband a “real life action hero” (tell him to put the Playstation down then), Asma has been doing charity work.

She’s just launched the Massar-E project, which helps disadvantaged children learn about technology.

We know which of the two can be seen wondering around their city without hundreds of bodyguards.

I know Rania has just singed up for Twitter so maybe it’s not a fair comparison – but if numbers mean anything, Asma has 9000 fans, Rania has 4000.

    Since they are both so web savvy I wonder if they will read this while Googling their names?
    If so I hope they check out my very soon to be updated web-site of images from both Syria and Jordan

    It would be a bit cynical of the First lady to have an “official” fan club on a network so infested with Israeli spies and propaganda that they had to close it down for other Syrians, no? 😉

    Sasa,
    There is no doubt that Asma is more beautiful than Rania, Then what do you expect , she is from Homs,

    I don’t know why but I assumed you had a liking towards Sit Rania but alas,I’m comforted with the though that you don’t (at least not that much)

    When people call her “your majesty” it makes my stomach churn,along with inducing a cringe like no other…

    Majesty kamen….

    I’ll hold my tongue when it comes to what I think about her huband,the “Heshemite King”

    I don’t really know why you are so Jealous of HER MAJESTY Queen RANIA al abdullah she is beautiful that is not just my opinion but the opinion of the world .

    becuase Queen Rania were classified as the FoURTH most beautiful women IN THE WORLD and
    ranked the most beautiful ten women from royal familiesin the world and
    Queen Rania the most elegant queen of the world
    Queen Rania received is second most beautiful queen in the world after Grace Kelly but really just look at the Pictures in google you will see that her majesty is beautiful

    but sure i’m not saying that the first lady asmaa is not beautiful but Queen rania is natural and beautiful and every body love her too but you have some stupid comments about Queen rania because you are jelous of HER !!!
    and she do also charity work and her charity work is known around the world such as
    the schools she open it for alot of children in jordan and

    but really you shouldn’t say that about her
    cause queen rania and the first lady are beautiful and every one knows that

    Asma al-Assad and Queen Rania .. more women in the world elegance in a referendum …

    and they are not jelous of each other so why did you say that Uncivilized comments
    so every one had an opinion and I respect it !! but with out saying Curse words !! cause we are adults and we should respect each other

    and as I know syrian people are good and polite so it’s now your moral and I have many syrian friends and they are so good !!
    Thx ^_^
