Now a few people were a bit scared because they are afraid of qataris. I told him he better sit down or a I will request the air hostess to tell the pilot that we have someone causing a disturbance and the police should meet the lane on arrival. Wisely he sat down and just glared at me for the he last hour of the flight. What a c--k

Well this young Qatari with his long hair like he is a rebel spent 30 minutes in one aircraft toilet with everyone waiting. One man knocked on the door and no answer. I then told the air hostess that maybe he had a problem. Se knocked and asked if he was all right. No answer so she opened the door and he kicked back. We waited 5 more minutes and he came out shouting. 'Who was knocking on the door, tell me their name. Tell me now'

I told him that he had spent far too long in there and many other passengers were waiting. Same response from him, wanting to know the name. I indicated that the reason he spent so long in there he was full of sh1t. This of course did not please him.

Meet a very rude young Qatari on the plane yesterday, but that is not an example of all of them just one man with limited intelligence who thinks he owns Qatar airways. He didn't like me when I told him I didn't care what he thought and he should sit down

Of course when you are older you can choose your own path but from birth you have no choice! Anyway off topic....

Nope my parents were not like that.. and of course I am not going to raise me kids like that..

There are couples with different religions..

Religion is a personal choice.. There are atheists in religious families and there are people with strong believe on GOD in Atheists families..

Rip,, There are many people choose their own way and didn't follow their parents, You born in your family religion but when you grow up (Assuming that you have a brain, a good one) you might choose another way

By Rip Cord• 9 years 2 months ago.

When you are born you follow the religion of your parents you have no choice in this or can you give me an example of parents who have raised thier children in a different belief to their own?

Christians raise Christians, Hindus raise Hindus, Muslims raise Muslims.

Qataris are just people that happened to born of Qatari citizens. You citizenship and your religion is dependent on your parents at birth, the same for all of humanity.

It's up to each individual really. I don't have a problem understanding the local ladies I know. They are my sisters and friends just like all my other mates from around the world. Sure each of us may have our own lifestyles and quirks, but at the end of the day we still have plenty in common as women to keep us together. Likewise I know my husband feels the same about all his local friends, and he has lots of them, AlHamdulillah.

m3 ......I don't know about any other Qatari, but I am happy that at least you are sensitive and concerned enough to ask what other people think about Qataris......although I have not liked your hotheaded ways in other threads.

Not really true, many GCC nationals can't stand some of their fellow Arabs from North Africa and in fact look down on them

And much like all human beings you get good Qataris and bad Qataris, noble Qataris and ignoble Qataris, righteous Qataris and corrupt Qataris, courteous Qataris and non-courteous Qataris, etc etc.

Personally the Qatari ladies who I have befriended, and my husband's khafeel and his family and all my husband's Qatari colleagues are overall good, friendly and generous people, Allahu alam.

And I do find many locals, even strangers my family and I have met fleetingly, to be very helpful and giving. Of course there are quite a few not so nice ones as well, but I just put it down to their own personal downsides and erroneous ways, and will not consider them a slight on their nation itself.

Very True BG!. Qatari's are very generous sharing their bread to us expats, and what most of us do? cry over and over again about the discrimination.
