The Dubai Ports World controversy began in February and quickly rose to become one of the most widely-covered debates in the media. At issue was the sale of a port management business to a company based in the United Arab Emirates, and whether such a sale would compromise America’s national security.

CAIR representatives were called on by national and international news networks to debate the issue. While politicians on both sides of the political aisle cited security concerns, CAIR officials were among the few voices to point out that in reality, bigotry and fear were driving the debates.
