I so hate these.. For example Israel vs UAE.. That topic has nothing to do with arhitecture, that topic is about patriotism, religion, politics...
I love both countries, I've been to Israel 6 times.. And i would really loved to go to UAE.

I don't even bother with such threads anymore. For some reason they seem to attract a high number of idiots who can barely figure out that the world does not rotate around America.

gentlemen, let me point out if i may--

most all of the "vs." threads rely on 'collective' branding...

no matter if it's someone from the States or EU or China or where-ever~~

and Dubai, for all its genius and wonder and magic, fails to 'brand' well for many outside D's borders, so the "only" element that collectively shows Dubai off is its new and rather flamboyant (by very conventional and somewhat tired-standards) high-rise architecture, and even that's pushing it because 'most' of those projects are really just underway as we speak, SO, Dubai is further 'reduced' to "proposal' status for most...

and we know how far 'proposals' can go in the real world--

I believe many are open to Dubai's meteoric rise and success, but the ONLY thing that will turn the tide of opinion is for Dubai to actually prove and demonstrate such completed successes, not merely proudly show-off its high-intentions...

why must you always criticize americans,have you forgotten that ssc is about only 15% american and the rest are from alot of other countries.most people in city vs city are european,so go blame them.

have all of you read the UAE vs Israel thread?
what is going on in this forum? just insane...
some political statements are just crazy...
and again some people show lack of knowledge of the UAE,
in particular again the money topic...they just don't know the money is coming from foreign countries for example...!
