  1. Let me guess, Holy Allah's laws say you can't have anything to do with alcohol and so these chaps were arrested. But Holy Allah says Gasim and the rest of the resortowners have been given a divine exemption. Yes, makes perfect sense that Holy Allah always differentiates between rich and poor. LOL.
