Qatar4Ever, you're the one that needs to 'chill'. I merely pointed out that whoever said that Europe is so conservative should take into account that we have been reclaiming land a long time. And no, we were not the first to come up with a palm-tree island. As legal as marihuana is over here, we just can't smoke enough leaf in the world to come up with such an idea.

We designed practical shaped islands, that were in balance with the local ecosystem and environmental codes. Try googling 'Flevoland'.

Also, you should stop thinking that everybody has something against you or your country or whatever's going on there. And an added bonus, everybody is entitled to think something is crap.

There are plans of building an artificial island in the sea of Tel Aviv simply because it is needed, we are not billionaires who love to spend their money on stupid projects who have no justification whatsoever.... there is a grave shortage of lands in the Tel Aviv area and here where the idea comes from....

The people in Japan reclaiming land since a couple of hundred years, too

To the project:
It`s interesting and from the pics it looks nice. It would be more interesting if they made it 10 times larger with many skyscrapers and stuff, but it`s okay

thOm, I really think you need to re-read my post coz you missed the sarcasim in it. I was acctually poking fun more at the Palm shapped island than the Dutch and them coming up with reclaimed land. Your taking this fake island situation way to seriously. I mean seriously, I really dont care who came up with it so you can calm down now.

And that last comment of yours just shows how little you know. Im not from Dubai, not even from the UAE, I dont think and never thought everybody has something against me or my country and I totally agree with you that everyone is entitled to think something is crap. This is why I think this project is crap and it would of been nicer if it had a bit more creativity in it. And for the record, I agree with you and did make my point strong to others that I hate the Palm shapped islands very much anyways.

So calm down, relax, no need to get all defensive, i was just execrising my weak sense of humor, as u can see i need more execrise.

I really hope u didnt mean me. I think your a very sad and paranoid person to think that. I completely based my judgement on this island on the fact that its a reclaimed one and had nothing to do with if i hate or love israel. And if you go and look throughout all news section youll see that I have zero posts coz i never preached hate nor love towards your country I just comment on some of its buildings. Just coz im Arab you dont need to jump on my back.

Another example of why I shouldnt practice my sense of humor. PPL dont get it, or im not funny. Nevermind, your right I take my comment back, I didnt mean to jump to some conclusion, it really was sort of stupied and im sure that wasnt the reason why you like the project. But I stand by my point, look at it again !!

God someone just shoot me. Well in my defense, read one of my posts I did ask what was the purpose of this project. Was it a touristy project or residential, to my understanding it was intended to be a tourist spot and based on that I said this project is ugly and need more creativity.

Man some of you are short tempered, seriously would I get the same reaction if I was Thai or Angolian.

Again I ask the question what is the purpose of this project, and again I think its really ugly and would be much nicer if it was shapped better.

The "palm tree shape" as you call it, is not tacky or childish as everyone loves it. I can undestand why you wouldn't like it as your Jew and some Jews hate Arabs.
