... in public view, in Dubai, when you're drunk and unmarried, and when you've been warned to desist, as if local customs have to give way to your own personal code of unacceptable behaviour. As it happens Muslims object to sex acts in public and are particularly offended by same-sex kissing and petting which break their religious sensibilities so it behoves Western infidels who want to travel to Islamic nations to start showing some respect for the customs and traditions of their hosts.<br><br>km<br><br>

"start showing some respect for the customs and traditions of their hosts"<br>I am not so sure that works in reverse.<br><br>Visitors from Islamic Nations have protested public swimming pools saying men and women should be segregated. They find it offensive to see women in such a state of "undress" in front of men.<br><br>
[color:blue]Mr Matter said witness statements, including one from the police officer, were "wrong" and medical examinations had proved Palmer had not had sex on the beach.</font color=blue> - maybe thats why they got only 3 months - IMO thats a bit harsh they should just pay the fine and be deported.<br><br>I am surprised that Dubai even allowed alcohol ? I though those countries were completely dry ?<br><br>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>medical examinations had proved Palmer had not had sex on the beach<p><hr></blockquote><p>Well, in my opinion medical examinations can't disprove offensive behaviour towards Muslim sensibilities because public demonstrations of sexual attraction alone are enough to be offensive. In fact that 'defence' to the accusation shows just how far away they are from understanding what they did wrong. They were found 'guilty' by the court and I would venture to suggest that the leniency of sentence was only a concession to Western ignorance... <br><br>km<br><br>
