Prince Moe of Dubai, the guy who is an innovative leader and open to any good idea--good is loosely defined here. The ruler of Dubai Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum who likes horse racing, and writing poetry just did something else. He authorized his country's warplanes to go bomb targets in Syria and Iraq.
But timed with that decision to bomb fellow Arabs and Muslims, the ruler had a song released by none other than his country's most popular singer Hussein Al Jasimi. The verses of the song are for the meek, seeking forgiveness from the almighty. "O God" is the title of this new song...this is was my first thought when I heard about the UAE bombing Syria.
I think he is getting worried that some may see him in a bad light...so the song's timing is meant to tell folks "I do not kill Muslims, I fear God" and the images that accompany the song show him and his family doing Haj. Never-mind that Dubai is infested with prostitutes and bars.
