lol ..

please don't make up assumptions based on your way of living ..

women do have rights and respect in here like no other place on this planet..

and there is no such thing as men only shopping mall.. but we do have women only because thats the way our women prefer to shop.

so please get ur facts straight before you make up such a statement.... and stop filling your head with westerner media crap

Yes, they could donate more to starving countries for example, instead of these kind of megalonic projects or instead of financing mega-mosques in non-muslim countries.

We're not stupid and eat all what some one has called "western media crap", so we can read and we all know what those religious fanatics teach about women. No offense.

Agree! there are many poor countries in Africa where children are dying of starvation and need the help of richer countries but since the project will attract
a lot of investments which will economically benefit the country ,I believe it is a good move.

Its a very good thing that Middle East is doing this to show the world the modern, diversed and peaceful side of Middle East. So, whats next? is Egypt planning one? maybe Oman / Yemen? Syria perhaps? However, I am very sure that Iraq will take awhile.
Oman maybe planning something like that but I have doubts on Yemen and Egypt. Egypt is much poorer compared to UAE and Saudi Arabia and Yemen is poorer than Egypt and is also suffering from the Houthi rebels problem. Iraq and Syria , I'm afraid ,will go the way of Afghanistan .
