Let us look at how these friendly countries are working.In its desire to be Switzerland of the middle east.Dubai has become a hub for business interests which want to be bridge between unfriendly countries and circumvent the international trade.It has given freedom to arms dealers ,traders of illicit goods and center for all sort trysts between nations,agencies and moneyed people of the region.
Let us look at some of the facts of this killing.This man a known killer(in Israeli circles) as well as international circles was living in Dubai with impunity.He was not hiding or undercover or in clandestine mode.
It is correct for nay nation to get mad when foreigners with passports from several friendly countries kill a visitor to your country.It is important to observe that fugitives from international justice should not be given international protections for business expediency even if it is for some political and economical gain.For countries to insure that no violence comes to their nation they have to keep clean of providing venues to known terrorists and counter organization from making it their home.
