UAE uses suspicious criminal toolkit to pursuit external influence

15

The UAE regime is making every effort to make the country pivotal in the Middle East using suspicious criminal tools in its foreign policy, leading to discontent among Emiratis and other countries and their peoples.

People don’t forget the role of every state or official during historical turning points in its collective memory so they can payback later.

Since 2012 the UAE has supported coups and dictatorships, and paid hundreds of billions of dollars for these coups to success or to expand its influence in the Arab world and east and north Africa at the expense of the Arab societies and their stability.

This support coincided with a campaign inside the UAE to liquidate any kind of opposition or criticism of the state in its internal or external policies, even if it attempts to correct the opinion or position of a government or security official.

The UAE authorities must be aware of their bad role towards their citizens and residents and their role in the region and its reflection on their international image. The UAE is campaigning to improve their reputation, but isn’t it afraid that their policy might turn its people on it and isolate it if the people can later impose their presence and build governments that respond to them?

Even those governments and authorities that the UAE have been supporting, mobilizing the community, the media and their diplomacy to support reprisals from their own people, will certainly expect a potential Emirati role and will look forward to the coup against and influence the country.

Usually, as history tells us, coups get settled, they attack states and organizations that helped them and invested in distorting their reputation in society.

The UAE has played a prominent role in the so-called “counter-revolutions” in the Arab countries that have witnessed protests demanding the overthrow of regimes that have been in control for 30 years and more, which is feared by Abu Dhabi, fearing the rise of currents threaten the regimes there.

The name of the United Arab Emirates was evident in Libya through its support of retired Major General Khalifa Hafater, and in Egypt through its support of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, in addition to its direct military intervention in Yemen alongside with Saudi Arabia.

This type of pivotal state is not wanted by the UAE people as it is a bad reputation for the state and society. According to the vision of the Founding Fathers who created the pivotal by leading reform processes in the Arab world.
