Taj Arabia, oh no you di'int
 
So apparently Dubai has set in motion a project called the "Taj Arabia" which is basically a giant replica of the Taj Mahal for tourism revenue...

Source 2

I personally think it's an asshole move, like dubai has a small penis and is just making up for it.

thoughts?

What why

Why would you go look at that when you could go to the real one?
That's like saying, "I could go to the Eiffel Tower but I'd rather go look at Blackpool Tower."

I was going to point this out anyways, but thank you for providing the context: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paris_Las_Vegas

Why don't they just invent their own piece of architecture?

Hindus vs Muslims?

That'll turn out well.

Dubai has enough money that it would pay you enough so you would personaly take your mother and sisters, circumsize them and put them in a Hijab and make them pray 5 times a day.

I find it funny that everything what has to do with the Middle-East, Africa and Asia is devilish, sh.t and all negative while the Americunts and Yuropeans can do whatever they want (for instance kill a sh*tload of people) and come out with it as heroes while still denying these murders and pointing at young Palestinian boys with catapults making them terrorists.

It's not really political engaged ofcourse, I'm just saying this because of the prior subjective comments.

Not to mention the fact that the Taj Mahal was a Muslim place, built by Muslims.

An Australian pissed off at people in Dubai for copying an old Indian building.

Makes sense.

Edit: Nevermind, this will probably fall on deaf ears. :shrug:

My mistake; the etymology of the word 'circumcision' suggests it only applies to male genitalia... I retract the first part of my statement, given I have just been 'enlightened' by the world of female genital mutilation :puke:
