    مشروع ظخم ريادي في العالم العربي و تتصدر دبي العالم العربي من حيث التميز في المشاريع و تنفيذها و اتقانها لحل مشاكلها بينما العالم العربي يرزح تحت الروتين القاتل امام مشاكل بسيطة جدا
    ان دبي مفخرة لنا كعرب و استطاعت ان تعري كثير من الانظمة الفاشلة و نشكر حكومة دبي بان جعلت الحكومات توضع في المقارنات و غيرت بعض اليشي في اسلوب ادارتها لامورها او عالاقل من امتهان شعوبها امام قلة الموارد و كثرة السكان و غيرها من المبررات الواهية
    انني فخور بدبي بالذات و فخور بالامارات كدولة عمرها الحقيقي 40 سنة و بلغت هذا النمو و التميز و الله يوفق المسؤلين فيها و يحفظها من كل مكروه و يديم فيها الامن و الامان و هو ما يميزها عن سائر الاقطار

    It is really a great project that will help poeple’s movement in this developped city of dubai especially the business activits . As Algerian I ask Allah al aliyou al kadir to gard Al Maktoom Bin Rached and help him to go ahead in this kind of realisation that will encourage more and more other arabs countries to developpe there transportation network .
    why the arabs and muslims countries not contribute to construct high speed train ” TGV ” lines from Tanger in Morocco to Madina and Makka in Saoudia Arabia and also from Istanboul , Teheran, Bombay and all khalij capitals to Mekka by using this modern vehiculs in order to facilitate our hajijs movements .
