No new Year 2009 at Dubai

Good resolution by Dubai authority. We will all should follow this decision since we are angered with things Israel did to people at Palestine. While we are celebrating, they are some portion of people are showering with blood and sadness. Where is the peace? They are all human like us. Anyway, here is the news.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates: Dubai’s ruler has ordered the cancellation of all New Year’s celebrations in the freewheeling Gulf city state because of the violence in Gaza. Emirates news agency WAM said Tuesday that Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum called off “all forms of celebrations” but did not elaborate.

The order calls for Dubai instead to mark the new year “with a somber tone as a token of solidarity” with the Palestinian people and with the Gaza Strip in particular. It was not immediately clear when the ban would take effect or whether it would apply to the scores of bars and restaurants planning pricey New Year’s Eve events.
