Dubai ports deal and real hypocrisy

It’s amusing to listen to folks on the left and the right argue that people opposesd to the Dubai ports deal are somehow bigoted or biased against Arabs. But what many people forget is that Dubai adheres to the illegal Arab boycott of Israel and refuses to any business or trade whatever with the Jewish state.

It reminds me of the hypocrisy about the Mohammad cartoon issue. Arabs and Muslims cry “Islamophobia” while they ignore the hatred that emanates from their own media.

Quite frankly, there are some things that we should not let other countries be a part of - other than use of, our ports fall into that category.

Doesn't matter that the practice is established, let the contracts run out and go American.

As for the hypocrisy over the Mohammed cartoons... The media was all over the Muslim demonstration in front of the Dutch consulate in NYC. I went to a support Denmark rally yesterday in the same place (with more people there) and not one peep came from the News.

Hypocrisy all around.

Well, the same people making a fuss over DPW's entirely legitimate takeover of P&O (shades of the Glazer family's buying of Manchester United) are probably decrying France's blatantly protectionist moves to prevent foreign takeovers of "sensitive" national companies, eg Suez/GDF(which has p*ssed the Italians off no end).
The real question here should be: is security at our seaborne entry points really in the hands of corporations, and not our government?
Shall we outsource our border crossings to Walmart? Our armed forces to Toyota?
