A word from Dubai

Just a quick pointer post our friends at Metroblogging Dubai who have a great post up about this whole port deal you’ve probably been hearing so much about. It’s a refreshing perspective from people actually in UAE.

“Most In the Arab World feel that this deal is not a security issue but rather a racial and religious issue because of the misconceptions that most Americans have with the Arab World. Most Americans do not know much about Dubai & the UAE, but they know it is situated in the Persian Gulf, they know it is an Arab country and thus they feel that it is not safe.”
