If you thought they were all conspiracy theories...read this!



"My kind of of people. Turns out Muslims are pretty much like everyone else. They love diamonds and gold, and Rolexes and Mercedes. These Arabs may talk a big story about living ascetically, following Allah's commands, not charging interest on loans, keeping their women veiled, and so forth, but just look around. They sure as hell aren't practicing it" (pg. 214, "Qatar and DUbai: Las Vegas in the Land of Mullahs")

Wow you should try living down here in Marrakech. This is definately one of the hedonistic capitals of the Arab world.
