    Dubai kissing couple face jail as appeal fails

    Now is this an ally you want to have any where let alone in the middle east.

    This is just crazy (expletive deleted) from a country that could be the middle east if they would drop the Islamic Cult BS.

    To the CULT of Islamic foolishness any expression of love is a sin but killing innocent woman and chilren is a path to the Cults idea of heaven.

    This is purely crazy, and points out why we need to stop doing business with any country that ruled but this Cults dictates, starting with Saudi Arabia.

    If we had a leader willing to do the right thing w could tell the Arab world to kiss off, and we would actually drill for oil where we know it is to be found in our own Nation and just off shore. Th PHONY Obama and the PHONY environmentally ill won't allow us to be independent of the Cult.



    Dubai kissing couple face jail as appeal fails - CNN.com

    Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN -- A Dubai appeals court judge has upheld the verdict against a British couple caught kissing in public.

    Unless the couple makes a second appeal within 30 days, the court's decision Sunday means authorities will jail the couple for a month and then deport them. They will also be fined $300 for drinking alcohol.

    Ayman Najafi and Charlotte Adams were arrested in November, accused of kissing and touching each other intimately in public -- violations of law against public indecency -- and consuming alcohol.

    Najafi is a British man who lives and works in Dubai; Charlotte Adams is a British female tourist who was visiting the city-state at the time.

    The couple was dining with friends at Bob's Easy Diner, one of a stretch of cafes on a popular strip behind the city's Jumeirah Beach. An Emirati woman with her family reported their behavior to police.

    The foreign population has soared in Dubai in recent years as expatriates, courted by the country, flock to the booming emirate to work.

    Now, expatriates outnumber locals by more than eight to one in the port city -- one of seven emirates that make up the oil-rich Gulf nation.

    So what you're saying is that Dubai being our "ally" and the crazy laws they have there is Obama's fault.

    ...that's a new one.

    No, I think he is saying we shouldn't ally ourselves with nations like this. If anything I would imagine liberals being livid with Obama wanting to ally himself with a nation that religiously oppresses everyone regardless of their faith. Not only that, but the laws are based off of their faith. I don't want to bash Islam or say it's all like this. But this is unreasonable and Obama does need to crack down on absurd Arab laws if he wants to befriend them and make them allies. Their does need to be a massive crack down on the Middle East. I agree with the OP.

    Why do you refer to Islam as a cult?

    If we cut off complete relations with every country we disagreed with, that would be more than 75% of the world.

    I agree this is a terrible repressive government. But you know, there are governments that are even worse. Governments that look the other way at drug trafficking, at child sex slavery, and at the blatant suppression of minority rights.

    There's one country that even allows discrimination against its own people for things they have no control over. Whoops! That's us. Whew! Good thing all those other countries that don't discriminate aren't holding us to that same standard you want us to hold them to!

    Bottom line: You're right, it's terrible. But geez, get some perspective.

    The rules in Dubai are pretty clear cut. I mean, men and women can't even be together at the beach unless they're married. Making out in public is just taboo. It's also pretty taboo in East Asia as well, and India.

    Know the rules of the country you live in, and live by them or go home. It's really that simple.

    I actually find it funny he blames President Obama for the U.S. still being allied with UAE when the U.S. has been their ally since the 1970s. So that means blame also goes to Presidents Carter, Reagan, Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr., and Obama.

    Firstly, what everyone else said.

    Secondly, Obama is doing exactly that.

    Really? Then why is it commonly seen in nearly every East Asian country I have been to except the Islamic ones?

    Did the OP NOT blame those former presidents?

    Frankly, I have long been a critic of befriending some of those countries, ESPECIALLY KSA, regardless of WHO was the president.
