The UAE sheikdom of Dubai, as regular members of Joshua's Army know is a racist, xenophobic and anti-Semitic place.
An occasional Jewish celebrity or sports figure is allowed there, rather the way South Africa's Sun City would occasionally have black performers but for the most part Dubai is a Jew free zone the Nazis would approve of. And that especially applies to Israelis, and has even before the 1967 War, when the 'Palestinians' supposedly became an issue...not that the Sheikdom of Dubai has ever cared squat for the Palestinians.
The country also has substantial ties to terrorist financing, was a drop ship point for illegal nuclear materials to Iran from places like Pakistan, is an enthusiastic participant in an Arab boycott against Israel that's against US law and refuses to comply with UN sanctions against Iran..yet for some reason the Bush Administration, which has always made such stirring pronunciations about being with the terrorists or being with us has always had the most cordial relations with them,, looked out for their interests and looked the other way whenever anything unpleasant came up. Just good friends and bidness partners, you know?
Donald Trump, of all people, appears to have a different standard than the current occupant of the White House.
Dubai was scheduled to be the host of this year's Miss Universe pageant, which Trump is putting on. And when Dubai told Trump that a Miss Israel( it's Shunit Faragi this year, pictured above) would not be welcome in their country, he told them fuggedaboudit.And let them know he was moving the pageant.
Nicely done, Mr. Trump.
