[Dubai's Burj al-Arab, the world's only seven star hotel]

From today's Wall Street Journal -
Tensions between Israel and the Palestinian Islamic militants have escalated over the past week after Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, a senior operative who Israelis say helped smuggle weapons into Gaza, was killed in a Dubai hotel room.

Hamas officials initially accused Israel's Mossad spy agency of the killing, while Israeli officials refrained from confirming or denying involvement. On Tuesday, Arab media outlets reported that Hamas officials were suggesting agents from Arab governments rather than Israel were responsible for the killing.
That is simply the unfriendliest room service I have ever heard of.
