Reader comment on item: Bagels in Dubai

Bagels on Emirates...bagels in the grocery store, with smoked salmon and cream cheese!

That's small in comparison...Rothchilds has an office here....so doesnt Goldman Sachs, but in this case even more pronounced since the family is actual still running the business!

At the end of the Dubai Palm, the Atlantis Hotel is being built by Sol Kerzner's company. AND he also brokered the deal for Dubai government to buy into MGM....you know the Casino operator....

No there's no hypocrisy out here....what about the turkish tv show Noor which caused outrage among clerics including those in Saudi Arabia....who owns the stations who showed them ? Saudis

you need a real sense of humour out here.

One question: thought the croissants were made at Vienna when defeating the Ottomans...hence the shape like the crescent moon ?

btw, the Crescent moon isn't really a religious symbol....originally it's the Fertile crescent from the tigris and euphrates down the coast of Israel and though the Nile.
