How many times do you hear that Dubai and Bahrain are “completely different” to other Arab countries and are very modern and liberal? Don’t believe it. Being able to drive or drink in hotels does not make it neither moderate or liberal. The people who say such nonsense just haven’t gotten entangled in the Sharia legal system. This is a warning to western women visiting or working in Muslim countries. Rape has to be witnessed by four Males, impossible odds in a Muslim country. And victims of rape are made into criminals. As a foreigner and non-Muslim in particular, you have no laws in your favor at all, whether it is civil law or criminal law.
