wow, i never knew Dubai has it's own royal family! ^___^ so are they a ruling family? ^^
indeed they are a ruling RF...but don't all the states in the UAE hve their own systems of gov't...is there more than one ruling royal family in the UAE, considering the fact that there are diff states?
There is no King in the UAE. It's not a Kingdom. It consists of 7 emirates and therefore there are 7 ruling families. Dubai is one of the emirates and is ruled by the Maktoums. The de facto ruler of Dubai is Sheikh Mohammed, he is the Crown Prince of Dubai. Sheikh Ahmed is Sheikh Mohammed's uncle, but he's younger than Sheikh Mohammed. He's not into politics.
celebrate the wedding of Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister for Presidential Affairs to the daughter of General Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and UAE Defence Minister.
second parliament in arab modren time was done by al maktoom..in the first issue ,some members of the parliment asks ruler for many thing to be done for the IMARAH (dubai)..imagine what was the reply from the rulers? ( go so far in the imagination ,otherwise you will lose the answer.
when I read your postings I thought amnesty international will know if it is true and if they do not they would be interested but now.........
I am sure there are some horrific stories of all royal families in the world if you go far back enough, perhaps centuries, but what good does it do to post them?
