I know a couple that live and work in Dubai and they think it's a great place. They've invited be a few times to go there, but no real interest as it's just too hot. On topic though, I think what's happened to this woman is just barbaric but sadly just one of those things, so the rest of the country and religion shouldn't be tarred with the same brush (even though I pretty much dislike the Muslim religion, but that's besides the point). I just think anybody going there, should be aware of the risk regarding certain aspects of life that we take for granted as being normal here in the west and not falling foul of the laws. It's no different for someone going to say Latin America and becoming a victim of a robbery and then expecting the same levels of justice that would be applied here in most of Europe. Whilst having no love of the Muslim religion, I do agree with DJ Chameleon (I think it was he) who made an earlier post stating the West's constant interfering in the Middle East and what goes on there, and the West's so called right to dictate to them.
