Camel Racing on American News

ABC news in the US ran a story on both Nightline and World News Tonight (its national evening news show) about camel racing and the changeover to robot jockeys. If you are interested in seeing it, it is available online here.

So is it illegal to retain the employees passports in the UAE ?

A certain media company in the UAE just took everyones passport today. Pretty much a case of hand it over or lose your job.

Ahh the fun things these people get away with in sandland.

The labor law section on the ministry of labor website does not have one reference to the word "passport" on it. Go see for yourself

Then they wonder why the outsiders think that the middle east is backward.

Hopefully there are enough smart Emaratis around who will stand up and stop their compatriots from making their nation look bad.
