After all you have seen in these fórums, I want your honest opinion. Check this article...

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/19/mart...

Dubai is a country (is it a country?) where Pakistanis and other poor Muslims are treated as slaves. Authentically as slaves, with corporal punishments, lack of medical attention, "accomodated" in iron rail cars without enough air... obviousy, with a mortality rate that should be a true WORLD SCANDAL.

Where this thing in the article happened in Mexico or Iran, you would see that it would have been a world scandal that last for weeks or months.

You will see that the Western press (specially US press) will make sure that you don't hear about it in few days. It is Dubai.

So you don't think that religion has anything to do with some things that happen in the World.

Waiting your comments.

Oh, I want to appologize for the "Bad Geography 101" of my first post. It is good to remember:

Dubai --> City of the UAE.

Lately I have forgotten a lot about the Geography of the Middle East.

Modern Day Slavery in the United Arab Emirates:
The Burj Khalifa rises 2,722 feet from the desert ground, piercing the hazy sand and dust filled skies that envelop the Dubai cityscape for much of the year. Considering the arid land and unrelenting heat of the Middle East, it is a wonder that this structure exists. With 163 floors, 57 elevators, 2,909 stairs and 24,348 gleaming windows, it is a feat of engineering and a merit to the ingenuity of the human race. It is also, of course, a symbol and constant reminder of the power and wealth of this oil-rich city-state and, more widely, the federation of the United Arab Emirates as a whole. It is the brightest and brashest jewel of the Middle East, which shines unto the rest of the world as a proud testament to the wealth of the Emirati’s. Yet, there is a story to this building that is not so bright…

This stupendous structure was built, perhaps predictably, not by the 350,000 or so Emiratis, but a huge workforce of Indians, Bangladeshis, Pakistanis and Philipinos. Hundreds of thousands of them were flown over from their home nations to build the skyscrapers, man-made islands, indoor ski-slope (one of the largest in the world) and many other disgusting trophies of wealth. In the whole of the UAE there are around 4.5 million foreigners, and 1.2 million construction workers alone, most of who hail from South East Asia.[1] However, from a cursory reading of these people’s experiences it fast becomes clear that ‘worker’ is really the wrong term to use – these people are 21st century slaves.

For many years it has been boom-time in the UAE, and with this hundreds of thousands of people have been drawn to the UAE from their poverty stricken nations to find work. Most leave under the pretence that they will be able to work for a couple of years, send money back, and then will be able to return to their countries of origins and be reunited with their families. The reality is a little more complicated and unforgiving. On arrival, after the customary confiscation of their passports, most will find themselves working gruelling 12 hour days, 6 days a week. In a week the average worker will probably work 70+ hours and for that will earn as little as £120 a month.[2] Most of this will be sent home to support their families. The pitiful amount left will be used perhaps to buy a little extra food. These, largely illegal, immigrant workers are housed in labour camps outside the cities, sleeping in dorms of up to 20 men, from where they are bussed in and out of the cities.[3]

It is good that these things do not happen in Mexico... although they not need to happen: They could be manufactured by the US and Spanish press on demand. On the meanwhile, you will see Tom Cruise in "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol", and not a mention of these things in US press, except extremely sporadically.

Waiting for your answer. Thanks.

Yes generally speaking Gulf Arabs think they are superior to other Muslim's because of their fortune, but when the oil runs out let's just say they won't be ordering anyone around!
The Pakistani's that usually work in the UAE are the ones from the south east, the ones in the North west like the pathans,balochs etc usually don't go abroad to work especially not the UAE because they dont take no sh*t.lol

Of course religion has nothing to with it Americans of all religion's and race are basturds and so are some gulf Arabs, they both think they are superior to other's.

I hope justice is done for all who've suffered at the hands of The yanks and gulf Arabs.

^Arab countries are nothing without oil! Once their oil runs out they will be poor...... What's even worse is Saudi Arabian Shaikh are allowing American franchises to operate their business in the Middle East which will soon affect Middle Eastern economy...... As a matter of fact it kind of is. You can basically say America is receiving not just the oil but the wealth they have been giving to Saudi is returning back to them and even double. That's why each country is supposed to have their own franchise rather than foreign.
