venue35 saidI just found this out today from someone i met in the summer on holiday. He is lebanese but worked in dubai for a company and he was tested (company rules)and came out hiv+.
He was fired from the company and told to leave dubai by the authorities. Also treatment is not free in some of these countries. Medication is very expensive and many have left for other european countries.
I find this very offensive and racist.
You mean he was expelled from the United Arab Emirates, the country where Dubai (a city) is located.
Apparition saidSo dont leave western democracies...muslim countries are third world countries for a reason and money doesnt change that.
LOL!! Yeah, cuz every muslim 3rd world country looks like this:
Well a country with extreme wealth side-by-side with abject poverty is indeed very third world. Dubai is a city built on slave labor.
Dubai is a horrific city that looks like a 1960s American suburban nightmare gone wild, with aspects of Las Vegas and Saudi Arabia thrown into the mix. And they've managed to seduce millions of people from around the world that have never been there, with their "7 star hotels" and images of man-made palm-shaped islands (which have to be viewed from an airplane to be appreciated) which sound great on paper but are total complete fails when you're actually there on the ground. Dubai is all about show with no substance. Their glitzy (if fire-unsafe) skyscrapers look impressive from a distance, but the city is dull as fuck when you're actually standing in it.
Sam27 saidI really don't like the Gulf Arabians - GCC. They dislike Arabs in the Levant region because they are more westernized, European-like and fight for democratic. According to SSNP (Syrian Social Nationalist Party) the Gulf Arabians used to call them "Syrians-Aramaean" that are including (Lebanese, Syrian, Palestinian, Assyrian, Jordanian, and Iraqi).
Gulf Arabs* look down on everyone
. They look down on Levant Arabs, they look down on North Africans, they look down on South Asians, they look down on Westerners. But, in their minds, there's a global hierarchy. Westerners are "above" Levant Arabs. South Asians are at the very bottom. And they put themselves, of course, at the very top. They're "superior" to the rest of the world because of their highly conservative "family values" and because they refuse to do any menial work whatsoever. And they're complete jackasses when they visit Europe.
I wouldn't call them "Westernized", btw.
*I hear that Omanis are totally cool, and not like other Gulf Arabs.
