This week, Peter Greenberg Worldwide broadcasts from the Fairmont Amman Hotel in Jordan. Peter talks about the 18th anniversary of the Concorde crash in Paris and what really happened. Joining the show is Taleb Rifai, Jordanian Economist and, most recently, Secretary-General of the United Nations World Tourism Organization, who talks about the current U.S. travel ban and how it unintentionally serves the agenda of terrorists and some other unexpected consequences. Then, Arnie Weissmann, Editor-in-Chief of Travel Weekly, explains why and how Jordan breaks all stereotypes about the Middle East. And Akel Biltaji, former Mayor of Amman, discusses his philosophy that heritage is for mankind and not just for man and then explains how Jordanians are the custodians of that heritage for the rest of the world. There’s all this and more as Peter Greenberg Worldwide broadcasts from the Fairmont Amman Hotel in Amman, Jordan.
