The defense apparatus in the United Arab Emirates arrested 45 suspects, most of them Palestinian and Lebanese, after the plot to blow up Burj Dubai (Dubai Tower) was uncovered. Dubai Tower, currently under construction, is the tallest building in the world.
The current wave of arrests adds to the eight other suspects detained immediately after the plot was revealed one and a half months ago. The detainees were apparently sent as agents of Iran.
Kuwaiti newspaper, al-Jareeda, reported a month and a half ago that UAE security officials arrested "an armed network affiliated with one of the countries in the region that operated on Ras al-Khaimah." Dubai was apparently hesitant to say so explicitly, but the implication was towards Iran as the responsible party for the terror network.

Khater is also one of the owners of the pharmaceutical company at which one of the detainees arrested for the Burj Dubai plot works."
obama is paying for this himself ?
Yes, 45 suspects within 45 days. They probably just decided to tell the truth about their comrades because they were promised milk and cookies.
Whoa....that’s interesting. Thanks for posting that clip.
Dubai would probably not be terribly disappointed if someone did blow up their huge empty monuments to financial stupidity.
Heck, they may have to blow them up themselves.
The truth is, Palestinians tried to take over Jordan, until the king killed over 10,000 of them. Then they took over Lebanon and destroyed that "Paris of the East." Israel invaded but was prevented from destroying those thugs fully. They have cheered Hussein's invasion of Kuwait. Their mentality is a decease, which shows itself now in Dubai of all places.
I thought so, too.
You’re welcome G8 Diplomat.
Yep, and so did the Saudis.
Despite the lip service, Arab leaders don’t care at all about the Palestinians.

"The Islamic call to prayer in Arabic is one of the prettiest sounds on Earth -- along with the shouts of 'Allah Akbar' as a death sentence is carried out."

Did you see any non-stop media coverage of Kuwait kicking out all its Palestinians as retribution for supporting Hussein? ... Me neither
Tolik, I have not heard it mentioned by the media even once.
