The Hashemite Kingdom

Mohammed Abu Zenada, one of the Chiefs of Jeddah and the advisor to the Sharif during the surrender to King Abdulaziz Ibn Saud in 1925

In World War I, Sharif Hussein bin Ali confirmed a rebellion against the Ottoman Empire, seeking independence from the Ottoman Turks and the creation of a single unified Arab state straddling from Aleppo in Syria to Aden in Yemen.

King Hussein soon took over the Kingdom of Hejaz and later on, Hussein was involved in war with Ibn Saud, who was the Sultan of Nejd. Moreover, in December 1924 following the fall of Mecca, Hussein resigned and his son Ali bin Hussein became the new king.



PAC-MAN is not bad, he is my good boy – Pixels Official Trailer

This summer, video games will invade earth, but this time, they are out side the box. When aliens misinterpret video feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth in the form of the video games. 

in July 21, 2014, Sony Pictures Entertainment announced that the studio has brought together an extraordinary number of iconic video game companies, whose classic characters – including PAC-MAN, Donkey Kong, Centipede®, Galaga, Frogger, Q*bert, and Space Invaders – will be featured in the highly-anticipated action comedy Pixels.

Although the movie seems interesting and has a new kind of comedy twist, however, it’s kind of sad to see Pac Man and Donkey kong as they are the bad guys. We grew up playing these games and PAC-MAN and Donkey Kong were nothing but good friends.
