Skip to comments.Princess Sheikha Latifa tried to flee Dubai. She left a video to prove it

It's not what you expect a modern-day princess to say.
"My name is Latifa bint al-Maktoum," the statement to the camera begins. "My father is the leader of Dubai" and "I am making this video because it could be the last one I make. Pretty soon I am going to be leaving somehow."
Less than a minute later in the video, which was uploaded to YouTube in March last year, Latifa, 33, known for her love of skydiving above Dubai, a glitzy modern state in the United Arab Emirates federation and close ally of the United States on the Persian Gulf's southeast coast, gives a further warning.
"If you are watching this, its not such a good thing. Either I'm dead or I'm in a very, very, very bad situation," she says.
Like the princess, many who criticize or otherwise run afoul of regimes in the Middle East have for years been vanishing in places like Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Sometimes they are detained or disappear while peacefully advocating for reform or for speaking out against corruption or violations of international humanitarian law. Often, the reasons for the detentions are not clear.

This is nothing compared to what Brett Kavanaugh did to Christine Ballsey Ford.
“The CIA concluded that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman either directly ordered Khashoggi’s murder or was aware of the plot to do so.”
That cannot be stated as if it’s the absolute bedrock truth.
The Western media was willing to be a part of this;

الشيء الوحيد الذي العالم العربي المسلم بالنسبة للغرب هو البؤس. ابق بعيداً عنهم ، ابقهم خارج بلدك بأي ثمن.
Has Queen Latifa been questioned yet?
This article quickly becomes a lefty diatribe against the US government for cultural behavior in Muslim countries. This behavior is common to the very cultures that lefties want to import to the US. Only “smart people” like lefties could think like this.
I mentioned it too.
Khashoggi was Muslim Brotherhood. I hope bin Salman was smart enough to officially sign that scumbag’s death warrant.
The domestic enemy media is the media for the enemy. Their love of Khashoggi and his jihad supporting propaganda is just par for their treasonous ways.
I read the article. It is a shame the human rights violations these countries commit. However, it had to go and somehow blame Trump for what has been going on for centuries because he is willing to work and do business with them. What do these liberals suggest he do? Blow them all up?
Generally speaking it worth to talk about it at least because harsh criticism of less oppressive regimes combined with silence on these ruins credibility to some point.
Save for later
Never trust a Moslem.
I hate that these “westernized” UAE royals have a heavy hand in horse-racing, constantly entering (good) horses in every major American and European event. Never mind hosting the Dubai World Cup to show us all what good people they are.
And the liberals in our racing crowd lap it up. Just like all, they believe everything they see, and that Moslems aren’t bad, just some people, and look how different Maktoum is.
Meanwhile, they disparage Christian Arabs like the owner of TC winner American Pharoah as “greedy money-grubbers” they hate while cheering on these treacherous Moslems, all for PC.
Only women can reform Islam.
Of course the douchebag reporter made this story TRUMP’S FAULT! Because his one golf course is co-managed by the state (as required for ALL such courses).
The Sharia future the invasion in the US of muzzie know it alls and anti-Western civilization types envision for us. Not going to happen. Comes to this...fight with every fiber of American fiber, legally, and otherwise. They must take it from us— and they cannot. We know how to keep it.
Adnan Kashoggi was best buddies with Usama bin Laden. Thus, the bin Salman new House of Saud heir apparent views the bin Laden clan as enemies, and also any of their friends/financiers as enemies. Hence— “will no one rid me of this meddlesome....” Merchant of death arms dealer’s son.
He was NO journalist. And it is not certain who did the job—if it was not in fact Turkish cutouts managed by Saud intel (the new cutthroat guys). The fact the US deep state clowns (emphasis former “clowns” C_A bozos from Brennan, the convert) reacted with US media help with fake concern propaganda— actually points out how dangerous it is to be on the wrong side of the ME political intrigue- to include especially Qatar (the “banker” of choice for the benghazi gun running aided by Erdogan and actuated by clintons, mccain and a host of Beltway ticket holders for arms). This is how it is- and nobody will miss Kashoggi, they don’t miss Adnan, who croaked in 2017. They might miss the blonde white slave women and the yachts. Real pigs of people in the scheme of things.
