Why should Laura Bush wear a head covering? She is not a Muslimah. When Muslimahs come here they do not have to dress like us.

you people are pretty ignorant about how things work in other countries. UAE is not a third world country. they are a very liberal Muslim country. women wear whatever they want there. but some women choose to wear the face veil. yes i know it's hard for some of you to believe that a woman would want to wear one but it is true. and these women in the picture are far from oppressed. they probably live in a huge villa with 5 maids and 3 drivers. the UAE is a very wealthy country and there are more women there attending university than men there.

just because these women do not fall to the western standards of dress doesn't mean they are oppressed or crazy. every religion and culture is different.

Hi,
We should forget all the petty criticisms and focus on breast cancer as a global epidemic which it has become. Women in their early twenties are now getting the disease as are men. This was previously unheard of. I lost my mother to the disease in December. She wanted to be nursed at home and to die at home. She did. And with much love surrounding her. But it is a very cruel disease. I was also diagnosed and had a mastectomy in 2003. The experience inspired me to research and put the findings together in a website. This is all reputable research and it has proved that breast cancer is 90/95% attributable to lifestyle factots such as diet, toxins in our bodycare etc etc Please spread the word and help to save lives and devastation in families. You can read the findings at

Many thanks.
Best wishes and good health
Deborah

SOMEONE NEEDS TO TEACH THE FIRST LADY PROPER MANNERS. SHE SHOULD NOT HAVE HER LEGS CROSSED IN A ROOM FULL OF MUSLIM WOMEN. IT'S BAD MANNERS AND INSULTING TO SHOW THE BOTTOMS OF ONES FEET. HER HUSBAND COULD STAND A FEW LESSONS AS WELL. THEY REALLY SHOULD KNOW TO KEEP THEIR FEET ON THE FLOOR

Yes Nia, you are absolutely right. The UAE is vastly more liberal than other more fundamentalist nations. These rich ladies are probably not as respressed as most. It is those 5 SlAVE maids that are. They are most likely indentured servants bought under false pretenses from Indonesia, The Phillipines or Bangladesh. They will most likely never see there families or there freedom again, but they do have the Priveledge to live in the Villas and serve there masters 24/7. The drivers are also on Call 24/7 and are most likely from India, Pakistan or Bangaladesh. The drivers being male however, do not have to worry about servicing there masters like the maids do. Yes the Modern Arab world is a model for the world to see, I hope never to experience it again.

No Nonsense Grandma!    

HEY, NUMBER 12--

YOU ARE AN IDIOT!!

LAURA BUSH IS THE CLASSIEST, SWEETEST, KINDEST, MOST BEAUTIFUL FIRST LADY WE HAVE E-V-E-R HAD!!!!!!!!!!

PRESIDENT BUSH LOVES HER, AND HAS NOT CHEATED ON HER. NO SCANDALS IN THIS WHITE HOUSE--NO SKELETONS, EITHER.

THE FIRST LADY ADDRESSED THE CAR ACCIDENT WHILE GOVERNOR BUSH WAS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT.
SHE TALKED ABOUT IT, AND SHE HAS ALWAYS CARRIED THE PAIN OF THE ACCIDENT.

SO FOR YOU TO CRITICIZE HER FOR SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED SOOOOOOOO LONG AGO IS RIDICULOUS!

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE IT IF PEOLE KEPT BRINGING UP SOMETHING HORRIBLE THAT YOU DID A LONG TIME AGO?????

LAURA BUSH HAS SHOWN THESE WOMEN WHAT A FREE SOCIETY WE ARE. THAT WOMEN CAN WEAR SLACKS, NOT HAVE THEIR FACE COVERED, AND THEY CAN WEAR MAKEUP AND NICE HAIR AND BE WELL EDUCATED.

THESE WOMEN HAVE BEEN TOUCHED BY HER, AND THEY WILL NEVER FORGET THE FIRST LADY.

PROTOCOL SAYS ORDINARY CITIZENS WOULD HAVE TO WEAR SOMETHING ON THEIR HEAD IF THEY ARE TO COMMISERATE WITH THE PEOPLE THERE. HOWEVER, IF THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND GOES THERE, SHE WILL WEAR HER CROWN INSTEAD. THE FIRST LADY IS AS IMPORTANT AS THE QUEEN, SO SHE DOES NOT NEED TO COVER HER HEAD OR ANYTHING ELSE.
