He was banned from UAE for being a born Shi`ite, and yet he provides justification for UAE-Saudi sectarianism

Look at this passage: "I am also a Shiite Muslim born in Lebanon. The U.A.E., like Saudi Arabia and other Sunni Arab states, are worried about Iran’s regional ascendance and its influence over Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Yemen. This anxiety fuels a fear that virtually any Shiite in the region could pose a security threat — and could be linked to Iran or its allies."  Imagine if one were to provide similar justification for a ban on Jewish people.
