Re: Car Detailing

Hey all. I just saw this after I had posted some feedback on a car detailing company called Zain Car Cleaning in Dubai on the expat forum just now. I was looking for a company as most of the ones I tried were crap and expensive a couple of weeks back and found a helpful post from someone. I just use...

Re: Cost of Iraqi and Afghanistan wars for Israel to USA

Being an american this is a stastic that makes me angry at the US and their foreign policy and very sad at the result of a pointless war. I have no idea if the numbers are correct but the US and British media is always focused on the death of soldiers rather than actual citizens. Very sad indeed.

Re: Why is pork bad

I could live without pork and I definitely eat less of it since moving to Dubai but dropping bacon from my diet I can't do. Anyway I think there is some scientific material out there about health issues (can't remember what) associated from eating pork.

Re: Remove Cement - DIY or Pro Detailers/Repair Shop?

Re: Jews and Muslims pray together

Absolutely. Jews and muslims lived in harmony side by side for 100s of years until the crusades and more recently due to palestine. Ultimately nobody can deny that of the 3 monothesic religions they have are the ones that have the most in common - lets hope they see it that way as well in years to c...

Re: Who Do You Bank With?

My personal experience has been pretty much the same as above - its a question of who is the tallest dwarf. I personally prefer ADCB, HSBC and Noor (albeit the last is limited in branches). In the UK and HK when I lived there I used HSBC and found them excellent but over here they are a completely d...

Re: Bribe To Stop Building!

While I would love to see the issues sorted I don't see much coming out of this apart from another drawn out stalemate. I hope to god I am wrong but I don't think even US pressure will lead to both sides agreeing on the border as both sides feel they have a claim to the land.

Dubai and Slave Labour

While there was a hell a lot of press on the slave labour employed in Dubai particularly at the time of the crisis I just wanted people's opinions on whether they think Dubai has actually changed the way it has conducted itself in the past and improved or whether its still the same.

Re: British Pupils Learn Hatred Of Jews At School

Re: Who do you bank with?

DD is right - islamic banks for sharia reasons can't charge interest and therefore call it "profit" but its essentially the same apart from the fact that it allows them to charge the customer more due to the uncertain nature of the "profit" rate. Mortgages by islamic lenders are ...

Re: Rape allowed in Bible?

Agree with Benwj on this. Some of whats been written(in all religous books) either doesn't make sense or should not be followed as we are talking about some very old texts. None of this I belief should contest whether you believe in god or not but I can see why for many it does. The recent abuse car...

Re: Buying apartment experiences

Yep hindsight 20/20 - the good thing is I can blame the purchase on my wife as she wanted the house...even though I did as well. Anyway as someone said life is a rollercoaster and can't enjoy it if it doesn't scare you a bit.

The political upsrising in the last elections showed that the governments is still able to quash any demonstrations quite ruthlessly. I acutally don't think the US want Iran to change.

Re: EU Economic Strife

For example Greece in trouble so a bunch of more stable european countries and the IMF get together and say we will bail them out. What does this exactly mean? It means that e...

Re: This Photo Shows Who’s Next!!! No Guessing!!

Nice one TJ. The guys are probably having a laugh saying something along the line of "do you think we can make it to 50 years?" - "why don't we just declare ourselves kings". I hope they are all brought to account for their sins and robbing their respective countries and citizens.
