Banning Mixed Marriage in Dubai

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

Yesterday’s The National had an interesting article about banning Emirate marriages to foreigners: “Grand Mufti of Dubai calls for curb on mixed marriages.”

I like how they have statistics for some numbers (30% of marriages this year were mixed) but then they go off into la-la land with sentences like this:

Mixed marriages are more likely to end in divorce and their children are more likely to commit crimes, some experts at the majilis said.

Um, proof please?
