Some apartheids are more kosher: Deportation of Shia Muslims from the UAE

Muharram in Dubai

Hmmm . . . where are the protests in the streets of Karachi and Cairo, outrage in London and Washington over this apartheid policy by haters of Shi’ite Muslims?  Where are all the vocal Muslim groups (Jamaat-e-Islami, Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Hizb-ut-Tahrir, Jamaat-ud-Dawa etc), angered that a country is rounding up Shi’ite Muslims and expelling them?  Where are the Muslims in my neighborhood–normally protesting endlessly about this Western grievance against Muslims or that one, and how Islamophobia caused their every paper cut via some sort of conspiracy?

Well, if it’s not the Jews or the Westerners deporting Muslims, then I guess it doesn’t count.  That’s because the united Sunni-Wahhabi monarchies of United Arab Emirates are doing to Shia Muslims what the world would never allow America or Israel to do; and what, frankly, America and Israel don’t have the guts to do to Muslims of any sect or creed.  They don’t want their Muslim populations causing trouble.  We let Saudi Arabia’s and Iran’s loyal subjects, trainees from Pakistan army’s Waziristan camp run the show, as CIA Directors and ICE and FBI officials pander to them hysterically.

The United Arab Emirates has expelled dozens of long-term Lebanese Shiite residents from the country over their presumed affiliation with Hezbollah, a representative said on Wednesday.

“The common factor among all those expelled in the past three months is that they are all Shiites and as such are part of a community that supports the resistance [DS:  a common euphemism for/reference to Hezbollah],” Hassan Alayan, who heads a committee representing them, told AFP. . . .

Alayan, 50, said he was recently ordered to leave Sharjah, one of the seven city states that make up the mainly Sunni Muslim UAE, where he had been living for 22 years.

He said UAE officials gave no explanation for their action apart from saying that the orders had been issued from high up.

“I didn’t even get a chance to pack my bags or bring anything back,” said the father of four who worked as a journalist.

In Abu Dhabi, the UAE capital, officials had no immediate comment on the matter.

A foreign ministry official in Beirut said the UAE ambassador had been summoned several times over the affair but had so far given no explanation.

Alayan said the expulsions began in the aftermath of the June 7 legislative election in Lebanon that saw a Saudi- and Western-backed coalition beat a Hezbollah-led alliance. . . .

Hussein Masood, a 39-year-old businessman who had lived in the UAE since the age of four, said he still does not understand what prompted his expulsion in July.

“I was returning from vacation and was held at the airport and told that I could not enter the country for security reasons,” Masood said. “I wept at the time because my whole life is in the UAE.

“I have three companies there, five million dollars worth of contracts and 85 mainly Sunni employees who rely on me,” he added. “I can’t believe that this is all happening because I am Shiite.”

So sad, too bad.

While we don’t have the guts to deport the Saudi Salafi supporters (the remnants of the 9/11 brigade) that make up the fifth column of Western world (most recently in France where a Saudi-Salafi brainwashed killed seven including three Jewish children) –and we continue to let that population grow through, I respect that the UAE does have the guts to kick out the impure Muslims, the Shias, the Jewish children of Abdullah Ibn Saba as Shias are usually described by Jihadi-Salafis.

And the only thing we don’t want to lose is “Dancing With The Stars.”  Our national security be damned.

Yup, the very confederation–UAE–which helped the 9/11 terrorists is more concerned about Shia terrorism than the country that was the victim of the 9/11 terrorists imported from Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and UAE.  It would be hilarious, if it wasn’t so depressing. Apparently, Shia Muslims of Lebanon, Iran, Pakistan, India and even those Sunnis with Shia sounding names are being expelled from the UAE on very short notice. Did someone say thank you to Ahmed Rashid, Pakistan army’s new found love, who recently alerted the entire world including Arab kings and emirs to the fact that their Shia populations were in fact Iranian agents.

This is what Rasheed said about Shia Muslims only a few days ago:

I think the repercussions [of attack on Iran] in the region would be devastating simply because the Iranians would not retaliate in a confrontational war with either Israel or the United States, if there was a bombing of Iran. They would launch a guerilla war using their proxy forces all through the Middle East, from Lebanon all the way to India. You know, Iran, as you know, is a Shia country. All these countries have Shia minorities. Many of these Shia minorities have groups which are pro-Iranian and have been armed and funded by the Iranians. These groups would unleash terrorist attacks on Americans and Europeans and Westerners and Israelis. And there would be a real mayhem. And this would particularly affect the neighboring countries of Iran, of which both Pakistan and Afghanistan are.

Oh, and again, where’s the international outrage, the U.N. investigation, President Obama’s excoriation, and marches of tens of thousands of Muslims on the streets of Dearborn  over this?

Some apartheids are more kosher, er . . . “halal,” than others.

When Muslims have internecine civil wars with other Muslims, it’s like Berkeley’s tree falling in the forest with no-one there to see it.  Like I said, if Jews or Christians didn’t do it, it didn’t happen.

And don’t forget:  they can’t get along with each other and are deporting each other.  And yet Israel and the West are supposed to make peace with them.  They won’t even tolerate each other, and yet we must tolerate them and their intolerance.

  • My friend is a Sunni Syed. His name has Ali and Syed in it. He too has been dismissed on short notice from his company in Dubai.

  • Islam is historically divided into two major sects: Sunni and Shī‘a Islam each having their own sub-sects. Large number of Shī‘a Arab Muslims live in some Arab countries including Lebanon, Yemen, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, the UAE and Qatar. Shī‘a Muslims are a numerical majority in Iraq and Bahrain and make up a plurality in Lebanon. Smaller Shī‘a groups are present in Egypt and Jordan. Despite the heavy presence of Shī‘a Muslims in some Arab countries, particularly amongst the population of the Persian Gulf Arab countries, they have been treated poorly throughout history. Additionally in recent times, Shī‘a Muslims alongside with Kurds faced genocide by the Saddam Hussein. Shias in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia face frequent persecution and extra-judicial murders. For both historical and political reasons, the Shī‘a have fared rather poorly in much of the Arab world, and the topic of Shi‘ism and Shī‘a groups are among the most sensitive issues for the Sunni elite.

    Hey all, I am working in @booo d/h.@b/i This is too inform you that over past week thousands of Pakistanis have been arrested and deported on a 24 hours noticed. The company I am employed in has so far gotten two lists totaling approx 350 people.

    Another company has received order for immediate retrenchment of over 600 Pakistanis.

    The visas for people working in the same company but in Dubai have not been cancelled.

    Lists arrive, you are given 24 hours notice to collect your things, hand cuffed and kept in jail until a flight is available.

    There is no news in the media and no protest from the government of Pakistan. The deportees are not being told of any reason. The only conclusion being drawn by us is that most of these people have seemingly momin names. Even the sunnis deported are mostly syeds.

  • Something that happened and still happens to Ahmadis is Pakistan which both Sunnis and Shias support.

  • I am sure Beena Sarwar, Meera Ghani, Zohra Yusuf, Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy and Sana Saleem will not remain silent on this discrimination against Pakistani and other Shias. Soon you will see a massive campaign in Pakistan’s mainstream and social media. Inshallah.

  • Tarek Fatah too will not remain far behind. Who said he is a Shia-phobe. Of course, he does not stereotype Shias as Iranian agents. Nor do The Friday Times or Ejaz Haider do that.

  • uae government doing this with the people those have name like ali, hussain, syed, hassan etc.

  • If Shiaa kept their nose out of Sunni’s business and didn’t back Iran and a terrorist group “Hizb Al Shaitan” in Lebanon they wouldn’t have been deported. So, they got what they deserve. They hate us and want to work and make money from our countries. Fu***c*k Off

  • These are UAE internal affair if some one in UAE have affiliated with Hizbushaitan of Lebanon they must be ousted for such a crime

  • These are UAE internal affair if some one in UAE have affiliated with Hizbushaitan of Lebanon they must be ousted for such a crime either he is SHIA or Sunni

    • What is happening in Syria is Syria’s Internal Affair,and if any one has affiliated themselves with Al Qaeda or its Affiliates they must be ousted for such Crimes be they Sunni or be they Muslim !!!…

  • My name. Is Assad abbas the uae government also deport me in feb2014 without any mistake this is good or bad because I m shia but sunni and shia both or Muslim shia and suuni are brother don’t fight with one other

  • MY NAME IS SAAD ALI KHAN I AM HUNDERED % SUNNI BUT WHEN I APPLIED VISA FOR ABU DHABI IMMIGRATION REJECTED MY APPLICATION THIS IS A REAL UNJUSTICE OF U.A.E IMMIGRATION.

    • That’s bad but wishing you all the best hope you get a better country to go to , oh and besides it is good, think about it the UAE has no real Economy rather than Oil and tourism as well as just Business Facilitation and service sector, it is not a secure place honestly especially nowadays.

  • THOUSANDS OF PAKISTANIS ARE DEPORTED FROM UAE….ESPECIALLY FROM ABU DHABI………..ONLY BECAUSE THEIR NAMES ARE ALI, HASSAN, HUSSAIN……..

    LAA NAT BAR YAZEED……

    • Things got Baad really Baad there in UAE after the Demise of the Former Monarch who was more tolerant and neutral and was just a money-minded business type of person who never bothered about the beliefs of others and was just interested in making his wealth multiply and then how to show it off. Now his sons are a totally different kettle of fish altogether and are more Saudi Inclined. But then again we must also think about the Local Shia as to how they are faring as now it seems that they are also being bullied by the authorities there as well. It is because the Expats will some day have to leave or go to their own countries or migrate to better ones, but those who stay behind and have no option it is about them that we must really worry. Besides they (UAE Government) are not wise people with regard to running their country and have no diversified economy all it is is about Petroleum Derivatives and a bit of Real Estate and and also tourism and also vices and luxuries and all manner of debauchery yet there is no sensible investment in other sectors like Education, Health, Industry, Manufacturing, IT, and so many others so the economy which is dependent on a few life lines is exceptionally Vulnerable and is not a real economy and it suffers badly like esp in the case of the Recession of 2007-9 and which is why the UAE has lost much of its Vitality it once had. Trust me that country is not much impressive.

  • THERE ARE NO CAMPAIGNS……….NO JALSA JALOOS REGARDING…THE DEPORTATION OF THE PAKISTANIS………

    WHO CARES?????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    NO ONE.

  • A PERSON WHO START SUCH THINGS IN HIS COUNTRY …………MUST BE THE THE MOST STUPID PERSON…………………….AS THESE THINGS HAVE NEVER BEEN A GOOD THING FOR ANY NATION……………………….WE THE DEPORTEES WILL IN SHA ALLAH ….SETTLE DOWN IN MUCH MUCH BETTER POSITIONS……………………………BUT THEY HAVE STARTED TO DIG THEIR OWN GRAVE…………………………………….FOR THE WHOLE NATION…………………….AS ……….NATURE NEVER FORGIVE ANY CRIME…………………….AND SPECIALLY A CRIME AGAINST INNOCENT PEOPLE…………..
