Thanks Dazz, I guess you mean January and not December ;)

Its remarkable to see that as soon as its about Dubai and its people, about Mo as their leader, its Sheikha Hind and not Haya who the media is referring to since for Dubai natives she is the rulers wife that matters, since she is family, not Haya.

I was in Dubai four years ago when the news came that Sheikh Maktoum suddenly died in Australia and still recall the mourning and deep affenction shown by the Dubai people. The Dubai natives were truly devastated since Maktoum was seen as a healthy counterbalance to Mohammeds globalisation plans, he was a very much loved leader, thats for sure.

I wouldnt be suprised if it was spider man. Doesnt look like Hamdan since he is seend by his father side.
All of Sheikh Mohammeds sons even Sheikh Saeed is attendign but no Rashid.
No I didnt get an invitationn :sad: Alot of people turned up to watch the opening,more than expected.

I wonder what is wrong with people? Why would they even start a rumor like that. Hamdan is a little childish sometimes but not that childish to jump off a building in front of his family... And press. LOL. People make up the stupidest rumors ever! Thanks for sharing Dazzling because I've never heard that before.

A handout from Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum's media office shows Sheikh Mohammad (R), the ruler of Dubai, inaugurating the Burj Dubai tower, the tallest skyscraper in the world, during its opening ceremony in Dubai January 4, 2010. Dubai opened the world's tallest structure on Monday, and a statement said it was 828 metres (2,717 ft) high. Dubai's ruler Sheikh Mohammed renamed the tower Burj Khalifa after the president of the United Arab Emirates and the ruler of the neighboring emirate of Abu Dhabi.

Video of Sheikh Mohammed and his entourage leaving after the opening. While the fireworks and all displays were over, Sheikh Mohammed, Crown Princes and Sheikhs went walking through the crowd which was no planned at all. Security had to make way which was very tight and people were trying to shack hand with them.

and here is a video (in Arabic) where Sheikh Mohammed suprises everyone with the change of name

Burj Dubai: The new pinnacle of vanity - Telegraph
Why The Burj Khalifa Doesn't Matter - Forbes.com

Its usual these days that football arenas etc are being named after the company that provided the money and this case is no different. Abu Dhabi gave the money therefore its label is "sponsored by Khalifa", only a logic consequence to name it Burj Khalifa.

Its a humiliation for Sheikh Mohammed, big time, but what can he do. Bear it and grin as the world is watching.

I understand why it was renamed, but I still thing it was a nice gesture.
I assume Sheikh Mohammed was not forced into renaming the building.

No he was not forced, it was a personal choice.
Lets not all forget that it is normal to name buildings, roads after leaders & rulers in the UAE.

I agree. After all, Sheikh Khalifa is the President of the UAE and it was very nice form Sheikh Mohammed to name the building with this name.:flowers:
