Yeah i'm fed up with this nonsense as well.

These women should learn the rules of a country before they break the law.
A female from Britain has also been charged with the same offence in the past although she hasn't gone to trial yet I believe,

I have visited Dubai several times & if you abide by the laws of the country it is a very welcoming place.

Pity arabs and muslims don't respect the laws and countries they visit. Always wanting us to confirm to their rules and change our ways of living.

Double standards? what ? the muslims? never!

That's our own damn fault for allowing the left wing nut jobs to cram political corrctiveness down our throughts. Get rid of the left wingers and their will be no double standard!

If you want to visit another land be prepared to abide by THEIR laws.

They should be respecting the foreign country's rules and regulations, no matter how absurd they may seem to you.

My opinion might change when I see a picture of said females though.

You are in a Muslim country...
Homosexuality is a grave sin under Muslim regimes...
You are on a public beach...

I have to ask why you would not expect issues?

I mean they could have waited to get a room? I am sure many people would not wish their children to see this on a public beach

They could have gone to the Riviera and run around butt naked...

It seems to me that the issue is not that these women failed to obey the local laws. The issue is that the local laws are a disgrace.

If the Nazi's had oil, we would still be buying from them, too.

Yeah I'm sick of the double standards that Muslim nations employ too.
