Woman given complimentary glass of wine on Emirates flight, then arrested in Dubai for drinking it, by Kathleen Joyce.

A mother from Kent, England, and her young daughter were jailed in Dubai for three days — where she was allegedly denied water and forced to clean toilets — after she admitted to drinking a glass of wine on the incoming Emirates flight from London …

Radha Stirling, Dubai’s chief executive, said it is “wholly illegal for any tourist to have any level of alcohol in their blood, even if consumed in flight and provided by Dubai’s own airline. It is illegal to consume alcohol at a bar, a hotel and a restaurant, and if breathalyzed, that person will be jailed.”

Imagine Germany when native Germans are a minority and the will of a certain seventh century religion of peace rules across the land. No more beer or wine!
