The streets of Dubai will experience traffic congestion of a different kind on April 4 when $20 million worth of super cars parade through the city during the second annual ‘Arab Run’.

Organisers said on Wednesday the 2008 Arab Run would feature an array of high-end luxury cars, including a Bugatti Veyron, SLR Roadster and Pagani Zonda F.

20 million in cars is chump change anymore. That could be as little as two cars nowadays. Pebble Beach this year alone, and this is just on Sunday, had over 50million in cars on the lawn.

The collaboration of Kuwaiti Palestinians with Iraqi invaders is being remembered by Gulf Arabs.

It was one Yasser Arafat's many dire mistakes. Of course not all Kuwaiti Palestinians collaborated with the invaders (I know of few who either lost their lives or came close to by defying the invader's orders to close down hospitals, for example) but people tend to remember the political head's stance on the issue.

I was in grade 12 at the time of the invasion and Desert Storm and still remember that, at the time, many Palestinians (also Jordanians and, to some degree, Yemenis) lost their jobs and had to leave the UAE (My father wasn't one of them and he continued to work here until his retirement a couple of years ago). Now the situation is much better and the trend is reversed.

I can't tell about Kuwait but I think it's natural that Kuwaitis find it harder than others to forget and forgive. I don't blame them. I blame Arafat.
