The Controversial Seaports Deal

The recent announcment of a business deal that will allow a Dubai based company to control a number of US seaports has sparked a widespread fury and strident opposition mainly from US lawmakers who threatened to block the deal for national security reasons. On the other side, President George Bush threatened to use his veto ( if it happens this would be the first time, President Bush uses this executive prerogative) to override whatever action that might be taken by US Congress.On the other hand several Arab observors believe that the fury over the seaports deal is due to a sense of "arabo-phobia and islamophobia and it is clearly politically motivated"...
