According to Amnesty International reports, Jordan is the country with the best human rights record in the Middle-Eastern region. Local and international human rights organizations are allowed to publish and disseminate critical reports of Jordan’s policy towards obedience to human rights; and local groups - such as the Arab Organization for Human Rights -are officially registered in Jordan.2 Jordan’s active role in promoting political reforms in Arab League’s forum and her level-headed approach to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict make Jordan a valuable partner in Middle-Eastern peace talks. The most important goal of the present Jordanian authorities is to build a modern Arabic state with Muslim traditions - to reconcile Islam with modernity and democracy. In that context Jordan excels many other Arab countries.
