Stateless in the U.A.E.

September 5, 2009

More men in the sun: Kanafani was right all along about the Gulf: the U.A.E. is comfortable with Palestinians only as charity cases. In the past few months, Palestinian workers have been getting expelled from the Emirates. It is likely that the U.A.E. is exploiting the stateless (and by default, passport-less) who may have travel and work documents, but no official nationality.

‘(This is) an operation of mass displacement of Palestinians in the U.A.E., especially those of Gaza origins, without known reasons other than security pretexts.’
