I had Lebanese and Arab friends some more Americanized than others and my opinion is its all about preference. I wouldn't mind passing the hose the traditional U style if it made my friends happy. The one thing I do know is the best thing you could do if your unsure if you might disrespect someone is ask, more often then not you will get a good amount of respect for taking the time to give your best effort to have a socially acceptable smoke for Arabs/Lebanese and a few other cultures.

After reading this thread I actually have begun to notice this cultural habit among a middle eastern friend of mine. The usual folks in my smoking group just pass the hose however, but he always folds the hose. He never said anything when we would pass the hose tip end first, but he never did it himself. I guess I now know why. I think that's really cool of him to carry on that habit.

Ya, I used to know a hookah lounge owner in Vegas and he was the one who taught me about that. Great guy but we had a falling out a long time ago and havent talked since. Maybe when I visit Vegas again or hopefully move back to vegas we could be cool again. We'll see.

My friend and I just pass the hose. I smoked with a friend of mine from India, and he passed the hose normally. The main rule that we follow is no lighting cigarettes off the coals, and dont hog the hose.

Thats an american cardinal rule, in many middle eastern cultures its preffered to pass the hose in a U shape. Just be careful, whats not important to you is extremely important to him, imagine if in there culture when you itch your face you only use your middle finger, well to us that would look like the middle finger even though it wasn't his intention, same thing in this scenario, if you give someone a hose pointing out that is still embedded with many cultural beliefs than you might as well be saying F*** you, because thats exactly what you did with the hose. So don't play this off like its not important, hookah is susposed to unite people, not drive them away, and you will exactly do so if you conduct yourself disrespectfully.
