Britain says high risk of attack in UAE DUBAI, June 16 (AFP): Britain has warned that there is a high risk of a terror attack in the United Arab Emirates, according to a statement posted on its embassy website. â€œThere is a high threat from terrorism. We believe terrorists may be planning to carry out attacks in the UAE,â€ said a travel advice posted online on Saturday. â€œAttacks could be indiscriminate and could happen at any time, including in places frequented by expatriates and foreign travellers such as residential compounds, military, oil, transport and aviation interests,â€ it said. It informed Britons in the oil-rich Gulf state that they should â€œmaintain a high level of security awareness, particularly in public places.â€ The embassy said that over a million British visitors travelled to the UAE in 2006, and more than 100,000 British nationals are resident there.

If you’ve lived in UAE long enough and know friends who are locals (i.e. Emiratis), then you would know for sure that it can be cited with confidence, that almost one-in-four Emirati works &/or reports to the domestic Emirates Domestic Intelligence Services. If you listen close enough, and have candid enough relations with Emiratis you will know that it is rumored that the State of Emirates pays through its nose to terrorists to make sure nothing happens on their soil.
It is not by virtue of example that UAE has not had a terrorist attack. It is becuase they pay that such shit doesn’t happen in their country.
Any attack on the UAE soil would have serious economic reprecussions for the Govt. of UAE. What’s my point? Draw your own conclusions.
