    The parent company of a Dubai-based firm at the center of a political storm in the US over the purchase of American ports participates in the Arab boycott against Israel, The Jerusalem Post has learned.

    The firm, Dubai Ports World, is seeking control over six major US ports, including those in New York, Miami, Philadelphia and Baltimore. It is entirely owned by the Government of Dubai via a holding company called the Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation (PCZC), which consists of the Dubai Port Authority, the Dubai Customs Department and the Jebel Ali Free Zone Area.

    "Yes, of course the boycott is still in place and is still enforced," Muhammad Rashid a-Din, a staff member of the Dubai Customs Department's Office for the Boycott of Israel, told the Post in a telephone interview.

    "If a product contained even some components that were made in Israel, and you wanted to import it to Dubai, it would be a problem," he said.

    Ben W; the insinuation of your post is very close to disloyalty, in fact you must be against the King. Are you implying that Dubai Ports are going against Israel the Apple of God eye? I also detect from your post that you do not believe Islam to be a peaceful religion. And I suppose you're against the beheading offenders also? Ben, sometimes people from down under are just like that.-------------mima
