Dubai or any Arabia city are slums of 21st century. Concrete buildings and inhumane Sheikhs..

There is a place called Saudi Arabia, worse than Dubai. You will get to know more dark side of Arab world after reading this weblog.

Muttawa means Religious Policeman in crude language. The Religious Policeman is a weblog written by an anonymous blogger describing himself as a Saudi Arabian man, and writing under the pseudonym of Alhamedi Alanezi.

Thanks for posting the link, yayaver. It's a great find of a blog; the guy is a great writer with a perspective on Saudi Arabia that we don't commonly get to hear in the wider press.
