I’ve given so many reasons why the Dubai Ports deal is bad (here, here, here, here, and here).
Now there’s another reason: Darrell Issa a/k/a “Jihad Darrell.” I’ve written about the Republican U.S. Congressman from San Diego ad nauseam (http://www.debbieschlussel.com/archives/2003/08/darrell_issa_te.html“>here, here, here, and here), and in response, he spent tax payer funds to put together and disseminate a “dossier” against me (not a very effective one).
He is an unabashed supporter of Hezbollah (called the terrorist group that murdered 300 U.S. Marines and civilians, “legitimate resistance,” “humanitarian,” and “farmers”), and–when he was still alive–Yasser Arafat (who Issa said had a “great sense of humor” and would let “you eat the food off his plate.”). Jihad Darrell also voted to condemn Israel for building a fence to keep out terrorists and opposed the Syrian Accountability Act. And, oh yeah, he hates the Border Patrol.
Now, Issa is supporting the DP World deal to control 6 of our major ports, and claims the rest of us are prejudiced against Arabs. I’ve already written about another pro-Hezbollah, pro-HAMAS party that supports the Ports. Now, there’s Jihad Darrell to boot.
Paraphrasing the old adage, you can tell a lot about others by the company they keep. And so far, the company Dubai Ports World is keeping in this country tells us this deal is simply terrible for America.
