I walked around in a hat and jacket with Tzitzis out, but then again I didn't go out of the airport...

Often when im in Muslim countries I wear a very large knitted kippah (i'm sort of dark so I blend in and everyone thinks I'm a muslim)

I was in Dubai 2 weeks ago...Did the khalifa thing, drove around, did the mall etc. - meh, not worth visiting again IMHO

Should I have any worries if I go to Dubai for a day? Being a Jew and having Israeli Stamps and  Israeli Visa in my passport? Also, I am under the impression that its safe, correct?

 I would like to go and meet with a view perspective suppliers for electronics and would stay overnight. TIa

Dubai is a piece of cake, leave your IDF T shirt @ home, where a cap as others have mentioned, I have friends who were in Doha with many israeli stamps and no questions asked.

As long you are not working for the Mossad you should be good

Mossad is fine as well.

They have lots of business there

How is it for a chassidishe guy to transit in Dubai?
(I don't even consider going out of the airport)
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

Did it dressed as a Lubavitcher (hat jacket tzitzis beard) and no problems (even went through passport control (with an Israeli student visa) just for points)...

Nothing to worry about AFAIK, Even leaving the airport aint no big deal, just stay safe - within public view.

Ouch, seems like a no-go.

Wife already has the full picture in front of her:
 
   פ"נ
הקדוש הרב משוגענער בן נחמן זצ"ל הי"ד

היה איש אהוב ונחמד לכל

נרצח על קידוש השם ע"י מחבלים בעיר דובאי

ארץ ארץ אל תכסי דמם   

הניח אחריו אשתו ובתו שתחי׳

ת. נ. צ. ב. ה
:'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

Holy heaven, you just made me realize something very sad. Emoticons on gravestones will become a reality in our lifetime.
