Peace in the Middle East means an end to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict

Our readers have their say on Gaza, Virgil Abloh, Dubai police, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid and reckless drivers

I write to you in reference to your piece Israeli jets bombard Gaza after rockets fired from Palestinian enclave (November 2): this article talks about the recent Israeli shelling of Gaza after rockets were fired from the Strip. This is the latest development from the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, one of many in the region, and follows an endless cycle of retaliation between the two nations. This conflict must be resolved for the stability of the region.

Virgil Abloh’s collection for Ikea was an utter disappointment for me

I write to you in reference to Selina Denman’s article Off-White founder Virgil Abloh’s collection for Ikea drops in the UAE (November 2).

I just checked the collection. It is very disappointing. The designs are too plain and dull.

Kudos to Dubai Police for arresting the European ‘safe-breaker’

I write to you in reference to Rory Reynolds’ piece Police arrest European ‘safe-breaker’ disguised in abaya after City Walk break-in (November 2).

This is a good start. I do hope they catch the other robber as well.

Excellent job tracking these criminals. Now it is time to be even tougher on dangerous driving. Reckless drivers put lives —not just money— in jeopardy.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid is an example for other world leaders

I write to you in reference to Rory Reynolds’ article Ruler of Dubai says ‘many surprises in store’ for Expo 2020 as he welcomes China (November 2).

If every country had such a leader, the world would be a better place.

Drivers should always comply with the law to stay safe

I write to you in reference to your piece Watch: shocking moment Abu Dhabi driver smashes into central reservation (November 1): when will people understand the government and the police only want to protect you, which is why using your phone while driving is illegal. Please comply with the law.
