The UAE is celebrating the 48th anniversary of the UAE National Day on December 2 amid the promotion of fake achievements by its ruling regime to cover up its violations.
The UAE system portrays the country as a country of happiness and an oasis of tolerance and offers achievements such as a mock-paid trip to space or initiatives of the human brotherhood document, and the Pontifical Mass in Abu Dhabi.
The UAE system also promotes the holding of FNC elections as an achievement, although only 337,000 voters participated, with a popular participation rate of only 34%.
In fact, the UAE is one of the most reputable countries in the world, which is tainted by the condemnation of the reports of the United Nations and human rights organizations for violations committed internally and externally.
International reports periodically confirm the widespread international condemnation and condemnation of UAE crimes, confirming the country’s black record of human rights.
In Yemen, the United Nations accused the UAE of committing horrific war crimes against civilians after an impartial team of experts set up by the UN Human Rights Council.
US and European surveillance has also been uncovered in multiple intelligence and media reports to support the UAE militarily organizations such as al Qaeda and separatists.
In Libya: A United Nations investigation confirmed the violation of the UAE arms embargo to support the militias of war criminal Khalifa Haftar and militant organizations.
The UN condemned the UAE bombing of a detention center in Tripoli where dozens were killed and wounded in an incident that was described as a terrible war crime.
In the Horn of Africa: The UAE has been repeatedly condemned by the AU for its aggressive interventions and spreading strife among AU members.
The State of Peace and Security in Africa report also noted the suspicious expansion of Abu Dhabi in the region, particularly in Somalia, Djibouti and Ethiopia.
The report said that the UAE’s militarization of the Red Sea region threatens regional peace.
In the area of support for terrorism: The annual report of the US State Department confirmed that the UAE is a station for terrorist organizations.
Members of the US Congress also confirmed that: The UAE is a center for money laundering and support for terrorism, confirming international investigations that have shown that Dubai was the world’s washing machine for dirty money.
In addition, the UAE is committing internal violations: including condemning the United Nations spying on Abu Dhabi and violating the privacy of individuals.
According to the World Democracy Index, the UAE is an authoritarian country, ranked 147 out of 167 countries and does not allow any public participation in decision-making.
Human Rights Watch said the UAE is organizing the second round of the World Tolerance Summit, while many activists are serving long prison sentences after unfair trials.
The summit was held on 13 and 14 November 2019 in Dubai under the patronage of UAE Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai Mohammed bin Rashid, part of the UAE’s efforts to present itself as the ‘Global Capital of Tolerance’.
Since 2011, the UAE authorities have launched an ongoing campaign against freedom of expression and association.
Human Rights Watch noted that the UAE authorities used vague wording and a loose interpretation of the penal code and other laws in the country to imprison peaceful critics, political opponents and human rights activists. They include Ahmed Mansoor, an award-winning human rights activist and a member of the Middle East and North Africa Advisory Committee at Human Rights Watch; Mohammed al-Roken, a university professor and human rights lawyer; and Nasser bin Ghaith, a prominent academic.
“Despite its assertions of tolerance, the UAE government has shown no real interest in improving its human rights record,” said Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East director at Human Rights Watch. To prove that it is truly tolerant, the UAE must begin to release all those who have wrongfully imprisoned them because they have not abided by the official line.”
