  •  The UAE is better than SA when it comes (8+ / 0-)

    to womens rights, if you can believe that. In SA, she'd probably be facing execution right now.

    But yeah, just best to avoid that part of the world if you're a female. Hell, I'm a guy and I wouldn't even go there. If Dubai wants to be come the next big tourist destination, they're going to have to come out of the 11th century.

      Hopefully they won't be rewarded that way until they do come out of the 11th centruy.
