Dubai vs. Gaza: Why the difference?
Over the past few decades, the city of Dubai has evolved into one of the world’s most architecturally and technologically advanced cities.

The average Dubai citizen is very well off financially. Sure they could stop being so stingy and help their fellow Arabs in Gaza? (Even just a little?).

Those who live in Dubai have a taste for the more luxurious things that life has to offer. 

Dubai attracts celebrity vacationers like Robert De Niro, the Kardashians, and pretty much every Instagram influencer out there. The city, which has a GDP of $108 billion, boasts attractions like resorts, marine-life parks, skyscrapers, and artificial islands. The ultramodern architecture contrasts nicely with all of the natural flora and fauna in the emirate.

The people of Dubai are able to indulge themselves in everything from golden desserts to exotic pets. Given the right amount of money, there are not many things that Emiratis are not able to purchase. The following are just a handful of life’s hidden pleasures that one can find in Dubai.

Visitors to Dubai are amazed by their incredible wealth. Why is Dubai so opposed to aiding their fellow peace-loving Arabs in Gaza?

Maybe they are smart enough to not want any part of that problem

I think you're right about that. While I'm sure many in Dubai are sympathetic towards the Gazans (suffering originally caused by their terror attacks on Israel) those in Dubai are intelligent enough to realize that the initial cause of the Gazans problem is that they choose to elect a terror group to rule them).

They are helping the Palestinians keep their professional refugee status.  No reason to kill that golden egg, no taxes, free donations from Europe and the USA.  Palestinians know that that can’t govern a real state, they have no history of governing themselves.

Egypt had occupied Gaza. Then Israel.

Then Israel decided to withdraw and totally end its occupation of Gaza. When Israel  withdrew they actually asked Egypt to go back in and occupy Gaza-- in hopes Egypt would tamp down terrorist activity in their neighbour.

But here's the interesting part of the story-- Egypt actually refused to re-occupy Gaza! They knew what extreme nutcases many of them (the Gazans) were-- so Egypt didn't want any of their occupying soldiers to be murdered there by Gazan crazies!

After that there wasn't a single Jew in the entire place! (A situation that continues to the present day).

But even after Israel totally withdrew from Gaza , the Idiot utiles ("Useful idiots" jrSmiley_88_smiley_image.gif ) continued to claim that Gaza was still "occupied".

It has become an understandable habit as Gaza has been occupied far more than not.  From the ancient Egyptians, the Philistines, Assyrians, Alexander the Great,  the Seleucids,  then the Ptolemies,  taken by the Hasmoneans, Romans,  Jews, Persians, Ottomans, Brits, Egyptians, Israel and now Hamas.  An entire history of being led by others.

I heard Gaza is a luxury resort like Cannes or Saint Tropez. That it is, "The Paris of the Middle East". Oops, that was Beirut. Was!

Is a /s really even necessary?

Was is right, another country ruined and so many lives destroyed or shattered.

Because the Arabs don't actually care about the Palestinians.

But they DO pay lip service about "supporting" them.
