REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
============================
 
        Newsgroup Name: soc.culture.jordan
                Status: unmoderated
          Distribution: world 
               Summary: Discussion and debate on issues of interest to
			Jordanians and others interested in Jordanian
			culture, politics, education, recipes, tourism.
          Submitted by: Loai Said <[email protected]>
 
 
This is a formal Request for Discussion (RFD) for the creation of the 
unmoderated newsgroup soc.culture.jordan.
 
Follow up to news.groups please.
 
CHARTER
=======
 
soc.culture.jordan is intended to be an unmoderated  discussion  newsgroup to
exchange  ideas, and  opinions regarding  The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, her
people, her politics,  and her culture. The group will welcome all people, and
accept all opinions. Topics of discussion will include but are not limited to:

* Politics			* Culture
* Music				* Language (Local dialect)
* Food				* Tourism
* Archiology			* Education
* Art				* Books
* Human Rights			* Social values
* History			* Networking
* Research			* Water resources
 
The discussions will be in English.

 
RATIONALE
=========
 
Many of the neighboring countries have their own groups soc.culture.turkish,
soc.culture.israel, soc.culture.arabic, soc.culture.lebanon, and
alt.culture.kuwait, but none of them is the place to  discuss  local issues 
usually  of  concern to  Jordanians alone. A mailing  list has  existed for 
sometime now, but many members had to unsubscribe because  of the amount of 
traffic  which filled  their  mailboxes,  and we  believe  there is  enough 
interest in such a  newsgroup due to  the number of  Jordanians on the net, 
and non-Jordanians who are interested in the peace process, and the 
developments in the country.


This RFD will be posted on the following newsgroups:
 
        news.groups
        news.announce.newgroups
	talk.politics.mideast
	soc.culture.israel
	soc.culture.arabic
	soc.culture.lebanon
	alt.culture.kuwait

 
The discussion  will be  held in  news.groups.  The discussion  will start
November 01, 1994, and will last for three weeks, until November 22, 1994. 
If there is enough  interest in the newsgroup, a Call for Votes (CFV) will 
be  posted shortly after the end of the discussion period. The voting will 
be conducted by an neutral third-party.

To get more information on newsgroup creation, please refer to the article 
"How to Create a New Usenet Newsgroup" usually found on 
news.announce.newsgroups.
