UPDATED - Dubai Official Warns Of "Clash of Civilizations" Over Trump
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — A top security official in Dubai warned Friday of a "clash of civilizations" if U.S. Republican candidate Donald Trump becomes president, the latest sign of disquiet across the Middle East over the businessman's comments about Muslims.
Trump refused to back away from his recent statement that "Islam hates the West" during a Republican debate Thursday night in Miami, which came after he called in December for a ban on Muslims entering the United States.
Trump said he wouldn't stoop to being "politically correct" by avoiding such statements. Lt. Gen. Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, the deputy chairman of police and general security in Dubai, took to Twitter to respond.
Referencing political scientist Samuel P. Huntington's theory that future wars would be fought between cultures, Tamim warned that a Trump win could see him face Islamic State group leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
"If Trump beats Hillary (Clinton), that means that the scenario of the clash of civilizations created by Samuel will come to light at the hands of the candidate and al-Baghdadi," Tamim wrote.
Trump has for years looked to do business in the Middle East, particularly in the Gulf and the emirate of Dubai. Trump has lent his name to two high-profile Dubai golf course projects and an ongoing real estate development, and sought for years to expand his hotel chain into the region.
Since his comments in December, a Mideast company, the Dubai-based Landmark Group, said it would pull all Trump home decor products at its 180 Lifestyle stores in the region as it "values and respects the sentiments of its customers." In Lebanon,
Abdelsalam Shalash, a resident of the capital, Beirut, said Trump is trying to win by playing on people's fears.
"He is using propaganda to convince people that our enemy is either the Muslims or the Mexicans, and it's rallying up a lot of people because people are afraid," Shalash said. "And fear is one of the easiest concepts to make use of."
1) Abdelsalem Shalash criticizes Trump for using "fear." Yet, that is exactly what he is doing to Trump. Trump did not say Islam is our enemy. He said a lot of Muslims hate us, and he believes it might have something to do with Islam, and we'd better stop immigration "until we figure out what is going on."
2) Abdelsalem Shalash is smart enough to know that Trump does not hate Muslims, and that he does not seek a "clash of civilizations." Trump has always done business with Muslims, and it is the Muslims who have put a stop to that, not Trump. Therefore, the problem Dubai has with Trump is not his alleged dislike of Muslims, but is, instead, Dubai's push for a Globalization that Trump clearly opposes.
3) The article says that for years Trump has "for years looked to do business in the Middle East". In fact, as the article makes clear, for years Trump HAS done business in the Middle East. Now, having made the statements he has made, he has lost all of that business. That is a very brave stand for Trump to have taken. Yet, he is given no credit for it. Other candidates do everything they can to ingratiate themselves to those who will donate money to them, or pay them huge speaking fees. Trump, on the other hand, says what is on his mind, even if it costs him business.
Now, what would those interests be?

FreeBeacon: RNC Sues State Department for Clinton Records
”The RNC is requesting communications between Clinton and her key aides, including Bryan Pagliano, her former IT staffer. Pagliano has reportedly received a limited immunity deal from the Department of Justice as part of its investigation into the transmission of classified information over Clinton's private email server. "…"The State Department is currently facing a number of legal proceedings seeking documents from Clinton's tenure. The watchdog group Citizens United filed another lawsuit against the department on Monday requesting emails between Dennis Cheng, Clinton's deputy chief of protocol, and Teneo Holdings, a consulting company run by Clinton confidante Doug Band."

Politico: Clinton email companies rebuff Senate investigators
"While several of the firms are cooperating with an FBI investigation, they're stiff-arming the latest requests from the congressional GOP."…" "What do they have to hide?" asked Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), who's running his own investigation into what Republicans say is a potential conflict of interest for top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, who was working for Clinton at State while also drawing a salary from Teneo, a private consulting firm.
WashingtonExaminer: Teneo, where the Clinton crew seamlessly blend politics and getting rich August 13, 2013
One reason Hillary Clinton lost the 2008 primary was the liberal distaste for the corporatism, cronyism, K Street coziness, and flat-out corruption that defined Bill Clinton’s presidency and Hillary Clinton’s Senate tenure.
All of that unsavory blending of political clout and personal wealth is still going on in Clinton world, and the crux is a consulting firm called Teneo. Two recent New York Times pieces nicely captured it.
The Clinton Foundation, for instance, overlaps significantly with Teneo, the corporate consultancy where Bill Clinton and many friends of bill make lots of money. The Times reports on...

Barack Obama buying house in Dubai on Palm Jumeirah? "...one of the US Navy’s top commanders, Rear Admiral Rick Williams, was relieved of his post after quering why Navy forces had been sent to UAE on a “Obama house hunting mission”. Official sources say the Admiral was fired due to misuse of his work computer.
Dubai could be a perfect holiday-home option for the Obamas –lots of golf facilities (mr. President loves playing golf), sun all year ’round (kind of like Hawaii, one of their favorite travel destination) and plenty of jogging possibilities for the health-conscious family."
March 8, 2016 SanDiegoUnion-Tribune: Admiral with porn: “Didn’t know it was this much”
Williams was removed from his post Jan. 8.
The one-star admiral implied that he didn’t start out with the intention of looking at sexual images during two short stays off the coast for the multinational exercise Dawn Blitz 2015, with Japan, and a large-scale certification exercise.
Williams was on the amphibious assault ship Boxer for six days between Aug. 31 and Sept. 5 and watched four hours of porn during that time. Later, in December, he was on the ship for five days and indulged in five hours of porn.
