Palestinians and Shi`ites in the UAE

I have received many emails from Palestinians and Shi`ites in the UAE. People have been telling me stories of campaigns of expulsion and harassment against Palestinians (especially those from Gaza) and Lebanese Shi`ites. A Lebanese Shi`ite professor in the UAE was interrogated for hours and she discovered that they have been tapping her phones and monitoring her. I have asked my informants for documentation and since nothing has been written on the subject, I shall link to here. (thanks Basma)
