Explain Yourself

Terrorist groups like al-Qaida depend upon the aid or indifference of governments. They need the support of a financial infrastructure and safe havens to train and plan and hide.
We have a responsibility to deny any sanctuary, safe haven or transit to terrorists.
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Osama bin Laden's operatives still use this freewheeling city as a logistical hub three years after more than half the Sept. 11 hijackers flew directly from Dubai to the United States in the final preparatory stages for the attack.

Dubai still "plays a key role for al-Qaeda as a through-point and a money transfer location,"

al-Qaeda isn't the only organization that has found Dubai useful. The father of Pakistan's nuclear program, Abdul Qadeer Khan, has acknowledged heading a clandestine group that, with the help of a Dubai company, supplied Pakistani nuclear technology to Iran, Libya and North Korea.
One of the reasons that the raid [Operation Entebbe] was well planned was that the building in which the hostages were being held was built by an Israeli construction firm. The firm which built the airport terminal still had the blueprints, and supplied them to the government of Israel.
I want those who are questioning it to step up and explain why all of a sudden a Middle Eastern company is held to a different standard than a Great British company.

Please, someone explain it to him.
