If you are this brave and/or cannot resist a bargain, the Damascus Sheraton is now offering a magnificent suite for minimal SPG points, but compare and contrast to the Gaza City Hilton which also provides free breakfast to HH members, not Mehadrin but I think the veggies used to be from Gush Katif.

Why not? They bill to your room like every other charge. You just donít earn HHonors for that spend

Anyone have experience smuggling wine into the maldives.

...and in other news, a man frequenting the online deals site, DansDeals.com, got arrested today for breaking one of the Maldives only three customs rules.

Family members are worried and do not know when or even if he will be afforded access to an attorney.  When asked, friends expressed both concern for his welfare and incredulousness. "Listen, I like wine as much as the next guy, but it simply boggles the mind why he would he try to smuggle contraband into a foreign country. I wish him the best and hope he doesn't spend the rest of his life in prison. I just hope it wasn't Manischewitz," said Baruch from Boropark. 

Yehudah from Monsey worried, "can you imagine the shame his family is going through right now? Forget the white table cloth on shabbas issue, can you just imagine what the shadchanim will think, 'so his father went to jail in a Muslim country, huh? I wonder what else he might have done while there...'"

No comment from the Maldivian government was forthcoming at press time.

And that's all for the top of the hour. Joanne, back to you.
