I am planning a trip to Japan this weekend, as I have a runner in the Derby. It gives me a wonderful opportunity to spend time with the Japanese people who have been brave in the face of the challenges that have presented themselves over the last few months

I wish to see pics and to see princess haya also ..

Doesn´t Fidel Castro wear a very similiar cap?

Even if it is not exactly the same style I think it looks not very flattering
Sorry, but if we judge women on their outfits,makeUp and style it is only fair to say that he should wear a different headgear

Princess Haya might make an appearance today at the Epsom races as she does yearly. I guess she is quite busy with the FEI finals competitions taking place.

Yes,hopefully he will have a long life because he has good leadership qualities and great plans for his country
“My brother, the President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, has said the citizen is the first priority. The citizen is the second priority. The citizen is the third priority.”

I hope this will also include people who work in Dubai/UAE,because they are the backbone of the economy and without these hard-working Thai,Bangladeshi & Indian workers the city would not be were it is today,not to mention that no restaurant or hotel could survive a single day without their help.When I was in Dubai I was quite astonished how some Emiratis are treating their servants or other blue-collar workers who were doing all the labour that is considered too dirty/boring/exhausting for nationals like cleaning,carrying suitcases or working as a supermarket cashier.Of course not everyone is treating them bad and the Dubai Royal family is a good example in the way that they treat their workers well.As a person of white colour/European/US-citizen you are treated nicely,but if I were a dark-coloured person from a "not-to have"-country I wouldn´t like to live in Dubai Sheikh Mohammed´s "Thank you campaign" was a great idea to change people´s perception about blue-collar workers,but to make a real change they need to get better laws that protect their dignity and save them from exploitation.Of course they earn better money than in their home countries,but it doesn´t mean they have to give up their human rights...

I am convinced that we will keep this in mind. Thanks for your open minded comment.

Currently under 10 percent of the residents of the UAE are Emirati nationals. This percentage ratio leads to tensions in society and creates difficult conditions for genuine equality of all (if at all feasible). Currently there is an imbalance - that can be seen critically in some points - but can not be changed now, because it will destroy the society from its footing. This may be neither our desire nor our goal, because it would destroy everything that our forefathers and the foreign workers have built. So we need a third way and I´m sure, all of our leaders are hard working to find it. We are governed by the best of our country. I rely on the vision of our wise leaders.

A little girl posed a question through a video broadcast during the opening session of the Government Summit, which was held last week in Dubai. Sheikh Mohammed expressed his pleasure at the request of the young girl and visited her today in school as a surprise.
