Sometimes you have to conclude the notion of Arab unity – or even camaraderie – is a long deceased corpse that we pretend is barely breathing merely to sustain hope:
The Palestinians residing in the United Arab Emirates have expressed their criticism at a government decision to expel thousands of them under the pretext of security concerns.
The letter went on to highlight that the expulsion of the Palestinians who have been in the UAE for over two decades would undoubtedly exert undue strain on them as well as their families.It also lambasted the UAE government’s persecution of the Palestinians who have been ordered to leave the Middle East country, rapping officials over the degrading treatment that the Palestinians receive at the Persian Gulf state’s Interior Ministry.
This is while the Palestinians in question have had no criminal record and no history of violence.Almost 350 Palestinian teachers have faced the axe this year as part of an Education Ministry decision to replace them with Emirati nationals.
The UAE nationals would replace the Palestinian teachers in Arabic, English and mathematics. [Source]
Good to see the UAE is doing its bit for the Israeli cause.
