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. When the Ottoman Empire collapsed after WWI, Britain took control of Palestine and created the state of Transjordan, under the rule of King Abdullah.

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.

7. Jordan History
JORDAN. Though Transjordan was an Allies supporter during World War II, in1948 the country joined the Arab League, changed its name to Jordan.
BASIC INFO. GEOGRAPHY GOVERNMENT ... 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.

    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

Jordan History of Jordan The country has been subject to many invasions throughout its history, the most significant 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.

    a colorful history, Jordan dates back to primeval times fostering
    humanity's major monotheistic tenets, with a succession of great
    civilizations that left their innumerable remnants. To get to know Jordan is to experience history. There is an
    archaeological evidence of settlements for great cultures starting
    from AD 160 with the Nabateans till our modern history including the
    Roman Empire, Byzantines, Crusaders, the Arab Islamic Empire,
    Mamlukes, and the Ottoman Empire. Jordan's millennia of settlements left it with varied archaeological
    treasures that range from the Neolithic statues to the Graeco -
    Roman splendour of Jerash, the mosaic riches of Byzantine
    Madaba, and the rock carved wonders of Nabatean Petra. Needless to say, that under every rock, there seems to be a vestige of the past with a haunting beauty that carries you back through ancient pages of history to a forgotten world.

    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.

    region. Its history began around 2000 BC, when Semitic Amorites settledaround the Jordan River in the area called Canaan. Subsequent
    Transjordan was one of the Arab states which moved to assist Palestinian nationalists opposed to the creation of Israel in May 1948, and took part in the warfare between the Arab states and the newly founded State of Israel. The armistice agreements of April 3, 1949 left Jordan in control of the West Bank and provided that the armistice demarcation lines were without prejudice to future territorial settlements or boundary lines. In 1950, the country was renamed the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan to include those portions of Palestine annexed by King Abdullah. While recognizing Jordanian administration over the West Bank, the United States maintained the position that ultimate sovereignty was subject to future agreement. Jordan signed a mutual defense pact in May 1967 with Egypt, and it participated in the June 1967 war between Israel and the Arab states of Syria, Egypt, and Iraq. During the war, Israel gained control of the West Bank and all of Jerusalem. In 1988, Jordan renounced all claims to the West Bank but retained an administrative role pending a final settlement, and its 1994 treaty with Israel allowed for a continuing Jordanian role in Muslim holy places in Jerusalem. The U.S. Government considers the West Bank to be territory occupied by Israel and believes that its final status should be determined through direct negotiations among the parties concerned on the basis of UN Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338. The 1967 war led to a dramatic increase in the number of Palestinians living in Jordan. Its Palestinian refugee population700,000 in 1966grew by another 300,000 from the West Bank. The period following the 1967 war saw an upsurge in the power and importance of Palestinian resistance elements (fedayeen) in Jordan. The heavily armed fedayeen constituted a growing threat to the sovereignty and security of the Hashemite state, and open fighting erupted in June 1970.

    History of Jordan
    Above all, Jordan is a land of history, and new details of its ancient civilizations are coming to light every year, as tens of archaeological teams probe into the Jordanian earth in search of the past. The most recent archaeological work indicates that nomadic Stone Age inhabitants of Jordan lived along ancient river beds and former lakes as far back as half a million years ago, and by 8,000 BC, permanent villages of stone and mudbrick houses started to appear on the scene. In the Early Bronze Age, about 3,200 BC, the start of true urban life is recorded in a series of small, walled "cities" that appear throughout Jordan.

    The History of Eddie Jordan, Eddie Jordan Racing and Jordan Grand Prix. Burrows,41, has been No.1 mechanic throughout Jordan’s Grand Prix history.
    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.
