The United Arab Emirates (UAE), especially Abu Dhabi and Dubai, make much of their and Western-style freedoms.
In fact, like in all Islamic states, there is in the UAE no democratic accountability - in fact there is no accountability at all for that state's rulers. The law, and its administration, are what they say it is. And this can take bizarre and horrendous form, as the attached video shows. It shows one of the ruling family, with the aid of state police, beating and torturing a victim.
Far from being ashamed about it, Sheikh Issa encourages the cameraman to move closer and take a better look. If you're up to it, check this link.
And remember - this is what Islam has in store for us once we finally hand over control to it.
