Activists and intellectuals speak out against UAE plan to grant citizenship to “Israelis”

The Kuwaiti intellectual and former lawmaker Abdullah Al-Nafis has warned against Gulf over-normalisation with the Zionist occupation entity, particularly the granting of Gulf state nationalities to, “Israelis”.

UAE activist and dissident Hamad al-Shamsi had earlier warned that the UAE’s new nationality law meant naturalising a large number of Israelis.

“The government is working to replace the people of the UAE. The Israelis will have an Emirati citizenship,” al-Shamsi said.

According to al- Shamsi, recent changes in the UAE, from allowing the sale of liquor in various places, allowing men and a women to share hotel rooms without requiring a marriage contract as evidence of matrimony, along with other matters, we’re established not for the sake of Emirati citizens, but for those who will be naturalised.
