Anti-Arab Rhetoric

InstaPundit has a pretty good thread of responses to the uproar over a deal that would give a UAE company control over some US ports.  Most of the points I would make are covered but I think Congressmen (and women) should ease the rhetoric more than a little bit.

If I was an Arab watching the interplay it would just confirm my suspicions that America hates Muslims  This particular company operates ports around the world and UAE has been a willing ally to our endeavors in the Middle East so there is no plausible reason to deny them the lease beyond their ethnicity and religion.

Our politicians should be ashamed of themselves for kowtowing to such a blatantly racist point of view.
