Jordan - Morocco - Yemen



What do these countries have in common:

Jordan: Wants to join the GCC and is welcomed... Yuk! I'll take harees over mansaf any day! I hope their welcome was just a political politeness.

Morocco: Wants to copy Jordan!

Yemen: Must be tricky to meet the PM when you're urging the main honcho to retire :)

Canadians Favours

From Gulf News

http://gulfnews.com/opinions/editorials/canada-isn-t-doing-favours-to-the-uae-1.699402

When Dubai Police Chief, Lieutenant-General Dahi Khalfan Tamim, revealed that Canadian authorities have arrested a suspect in the murder of Hamas commander Mahmoud Al Mabhouh, Ottawa pretended to have been caught off guard. It seems Canadian authorities wanted to keep the arrest secret, perhaps to avoid angering close ally Israel.

Some think the Canadians might have backtracked on this issue, by even trying to deny it ever happened, as a response to the beating the Canada-UAE ties have taken in the past few weeks, over a disagreement on airline landing rights. If that is the case, Canada will only be shooting itself in the foot. Security cooperation, especially in combating state-sponsored terrorism, like the assassination of Al Mabhouh in Dubai earlier this year, should not be affected by trade relations.

If Canada thinks it is doing the UAE a favour in arresting a wanted criminal, it surely is mistaken. Terrorism is a global threat and the UAE, according to United Nations reports, is at the forefront of international efforts aimed at eradicating this plague.

Security cooperation is not an option. With terror activities rising, transparent security cooperation is the only way to ensure global peace.

How every interesting! Especially after I've read this news article below...

Dumb Circular

Apparently...

"No compensatory off for New Year holiday
Ministerial circular declares Saturday holiday for public sector"


How fucking dumb are we? Next year they might issue a circular declaring that the week is 7 days long.

Insult our intelligence sometimes, but this is baseless and pointless. Everyone gets a holiday on new years.. just because it's on a weekend doesn't make it OK.
