Published: December 15, 2012 at 5:56 PMWith all of the chaos throughout the Islamic nations, I would be wary of any project this large. This area of the world is a powder keg. Even the Saudi monarchy is being cautious. Stability is a big question mark, even in Dubai. We need to be thankful that we live in, what is undoubtedly, the most secure nation on earth.

Published: December 16, 2012 at 7:03 PMThe only chaos going on in Dubai is a good old hypercapitalist bubble that crashed, which does not really ring any asociations with "islamic" whatever that is supposed to be. Muslim majority countries are just as diverse as christian majority countries. The tourist risk asociated with going to Dubai is mostly about lack of healthcare without imidiated payment and excessive punishment for drug use. Now i wunder which other very christian country could be asociate with those kind of risks for tourists.
