The UAE, of which Dubai is an Emirate, along with Abu Dhabi are very progressive and a different branch of Islam from the extremists. They're also sort of protected, being surrounded by Saudi and Oman on all sides and the Persian Gulf in front of them.

Did I remember to say Islamic nations abuse their women the most by controlling even what they wear??
1. The vast majority of Islamic countries do not control what women wear, although skimpy attire would certainly stand out, and probably not in a good way. Much in the same way that European tourists who opt to change right on the beach in the US stand out. The countries that do severely restrict clothing (like Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan, which seem to be the only reference point many here have for a Muslim country) also control what men wear. You aren't going to see a man walking down the streets of Riyadh with bare knees, either.

2. Abuse animals? I've seen a sheep slaughtered by having the neck cut (not by Muslims, interestingly enough, but by Orthodox Greeks in the Caucus mountains). It was quick, respectful, and far more humane than what we do in our slaughterhouses in the US.

Yeah, that's why you see a steady flow of "Christians" flocking to Islamic cult majority nations while seeking shelter from the West and its "twisted" ideologies. LOL

If moslem want to live like cavemen it's their problem. Don't ask the civilized world to put up with menacing face covers - it could be another Osama hiding for all you know.

You mean Menacing head/face covers like these...?

Sorry it hurts Islamic cultists' sentiments when people don't think potato sack over the head isn't as sexy as moslem mullahs make it out to be. Darned.


As for the picture you cobbled together, Mother Teresa never killed people with machine guns. LOL

But according to this thread, she dressed like a terrorist & is a symbol of terrorist just like these 2 girls in UT who didn't kill people with machine guns either.
