Meet Some of the Senior Management of DP World

I was curious about this as I read that a number of non-Muslims held top management positions at DP World, the company that is going to be taking over part of the operations in several U.S. ports. So here they are, a bunch of race traitors and sell outs no doubt.

Ted has over thirty years of diverse experience in the transportation industry. He has served as the President of Norton Lilly & Co., a premier shipping agency in the United States. Mr. Bilkey was instrumental in the development of China Ocean Shipping Company’s services to the United States after the opening of China in the 1980s. He also served as Vice President of Maher Terminals in the Port of New York, one of the major US Terminal Operators.

In the late 80s to mid 90s, Mr. Bilkey served as the Executive Director of Dubai Ports Authority and Jebel Ali Free Zone Authority and was involved in establishing the foundation for its rapid growth both domestically and internationally.

Mr. Bilkey is a graduate of Yale University and has Masters Degrees from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, run by Harvard, MIT and Tuffs Universities.

Frankly, I’m having a really hard time seeing this company, even state owned, as being a front for terrorists.

    I suspect that Fersboo is being a bit sarcastic. I’ve been anything but a Bush apologist lately…at least on economic matters.

    “Race traitors”? Being a muzzleman has noting to do with race.

    Michael Moore, Senior Vice President Commercial.

    If Michael Moore is a Senior VP, then George Galloway is probably the CFO!!!
