Pravda points out Dubai acting like Nazis

This is rich.

Last week, I reported that the Emirate of Dubai had decided to take the hit to duty free sales and ban all Israelis from Dubai.

At the time, I questioned the Emirates' authorities' assertions that they knew how to recognize Israelis Jews and that they would therefore know whom to band, even if an arriving passenger was carrying a British, French, Australian or for that matter, American passport.

But it's left to Pravda, the old Russian communist news service, to really make a mockery of the Emiratis (Hat Tip: Pamela).

It is not quite clear, though, how Arab officials are going to identify Israelis. They would obviously have no difficulty in identifying Orthodox bearded hasids for their side-locks, hats and glasses. It looks like a joke though: “Wearing a hat and a pair of glasses makes you a Jew.”

Such people would never think of traveling to Emirates. Will Emirates liken itself to the Third Reich and use rulers and protractors to measure the shape of the nose, earlaps and the skull structure? If it does, the UAE will lose all of its friends in the West.
It couldn't happen to a nicer bunch.
