Jordan's queen launches YouTube channel to battle stereotypes
Jordan's media savvy Queen Rania has launched a YouTube channel calling on young people to engage in a global dialogue to dismantle stereotypes of the Muslims and Arab world, according to a press statement from the Royal Palace.

Rania has vowed to work to break down such preconceptions and has said she wants people to "know the real Arab world... unedited, unscripted and unfiltered."

The YouTube channel invites viewers to give their opinions of the Middle East and talk about stereotyped images they may have of Arabs and Muslims.

In the Palace statement, Rania was quoted as saying that she wanted the young world "to see the personal side of my region, to know the places and faces and rituals and culture that shape the part of the world I call home."
