So this weeks Flashback Friday of this weeks events –
“No to anti-Semitism. No to Islamophobia.”
That was the message chanted by what’s estimated to be more than 1,000 Muslims who created a human shield, or what they called a “ring of peace,” around a synagogue in the Norwegian capital of Oslo late Saturday. A great symbolic gesture by the Muslims of Norway in an effort to build community relations.
As you may know from reading Stormy’s Tick Box, I am a big fan of Qatar Airways, yes we have had our differences in the past however on the whole I am very supportive of them (at least in their business pursuits, perhaps less so there apparent restrictive HR policies). Anyhow Delta Airlines (and most US and European) carriers have always had issues with the gulf carriers expanding into ‘their territory’ and receiving alleged government subsidiaries. However the Delta Airlines boss has taken it one step further, and blamed the gulf countries and indirectly the airlines for their bankruptcy as a result of 9/11. Naturally Emirates airline and Qatar airways have taken offence to this and have issued strong statements in response. I am not sure what Delta were thinking, or even if they were thinking, however after hearing of a recent harassment issue of muslim passengers, the airline clearly has some deep seated islamophobia issues.
In a city that is already home to the world’s biggest skyscraper, the world’s biggest mall and even the world’s most expensive cupcake, it comes as no surprise that Dubai’s Scoopi Café has now served up its latest promotion: A scoop of ice cream priced at AED2,999 ($816).
One of the funniest articles I have read, though I do feel very sorry for the Groom, was this article about Bridge, who found out on her wedding day that her groom suffers from Epilepsy. So incensed by this new information, she cancelled the wedding, and then proposed to marry a member of the brother in laws family, who duly accepted! Sounds like the stuff you only hear about in the movies!
