My Dear ! If my prediction would prove to be false, then my grave will be trampled underfoot that the friends of Israel and India، the enemies of Pakistan, the unfaithful and ruthless Arab kings and sheikhs will again be associated with the ancestral profession of dacoits of the Arab deserts.

Not only the Indian directors of my company but also the Pakistani owners hated my pro-Pakistani blogs. From the day I started my Defense Times website, I swear, they were bent on killing me. Since March my salary was stopped. And then the day the UAE became puppet of Israel, my conscience did not allow me to live in that filthy country. Unfortunately, the Indian slave Pakistan owners did not give me seven months' salary. A week later, I took my passport and left Dubai.

I can give my life for my Pakistan a thousand times but I cannot bow my head in front of Indians and Indian friends. Soon my eye opening observations during my stay in Dubai and the anti-Pakistan facts of the Indian lobby there will be on my websites.

عشق جب بن کے خدا دل کے قریں رہتا ہے
پھر زمانے کے کہاں زیر ِ نگیں رہتا ہے
(When love becomes the God of the heart Then it does not remain under the control of the world)

My website is my crime
sir i appreciate your high morale.
best of luck with your online initiative..

what's wrong with UAE ?????????????????
The UAE is so fucking disgusting. It is one thing to establish ties with Israel yourself, it’s another thing to attack other Muslims for not supporting Israel’s ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians.

Why Turkey who has ties with Usrael for 70 years is not criticized.. This is utter hypocrisy by some pretending to be Muslims..

The above posts show hatred based on hypocrisy and psy complexes.. It is too obvious..

BTW Algeria officially said that everyone should get out of Libya.. including Turkey who was too close for comfort..

And these Turkish news are based on what? An amalgam of news pieces from here and there.. to make it look solid..

Fake news..
Because Turkey isn't sanctioning Algeria (or anyone else) for not recognizing Usrael.

to be honest no one but a new friend that has expansion a part of its religious prophecy about Zion.
it seems impossible and inconceivable but its the nature of that monster Israel. maybe not in our lifetime but its a given
It has nothing to do with a prophecy, these mini kingdoms, that never existed in historical MAE, have been created by the British empire during the Sykes /Pico drinking party. They owe their existence to the West..They do the things they do to insure their survival and their existence..You all remember the first word uttered by Trump to the Sauds during his 1st term campaign , “WITHOUT US “PROTECTION”, YOU WONT LAST A WEEK!

That is too much BS and wet dreams in one post..
Answer just one question: who will attack the UAE?
What about what I said is a "wet dream"?

This is nothing short of a major setback for the Palestinians and a disaster for the UAE and nations like Saudi Arabia particularly over future arguments and possibly conflicts that will erupt over the Hejaz.

You asked who will attack the UAE, that’s what I’d like to know.

So why is the UAE fomenting violence and coups in other Muslim nations?

As long as the UAE doesn't pose a threat to us and our allies I honestly don’t care what they do because frankly the GCC is completely useless unless used as satellite states to wage attacks on us.

It was the UAE representative Anwar Gargash who stated:

“In this current international system, it is no longer ‘write a cheque and someone is going to come and secure the stability in the region.’ You have to do some of the burden-sharing,”

So why did the UAE bail on their "ally" Saudi Arabia in the middle of their war on Yemen leaving them to hold the bag after committing a host of atrocities there on other Arabs and now financing terrorists working against Saudi interests?
Why the United Arab Emirates Is Abandoning Saudi Arabia in Yemen
Analysis: The divergent Saudi-UAE strategies in Yemen

This is not a nation that
can hit back very hard on its own
instead it’s more like the UAE is a nation that can't protect itself let alone anyone else so when it couldn't write cheques to have someone else (i.e. Pakistan and Turkey) die to force their dictate on neighboring Muslim states like Yemen they rid themselves of any dignity and honor they had left by recognizing Israel in contravention with their own aforementioned statements and goals.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m concerned about a nuclear Iran but the same way I’m concerned about any despot ruling GCC nations having them too just look at what that deranged lunatic Assad has done to his country with barrel bombs.

So if that was the concern why not work alongside Pakistan and Turkey to achieve that goal?

We could have all cooperated together on weapons development like the TAI TF-X which itself ties in with Pakistan’s own goals for a 5th generation stealth fighter, the Siper air defence system (which would be equivalent to the S-400 if not S-500), a upgrades to the KORAL EW system and AIKA directed energy weapons.

Whatever the UAE may say to justify what they did let’s be clear:
  1. This has nothing to do with protecting Palestinians and little to do with Iran which is simply used as a scapegoat. I am of the strong view that the UAE's true perceived threat is Turkey and for what?
  2. It’s about preventing the spread of representative governments in Muslim nations specifically democratically elected Islamic leadership that would do away with the hoarding of state assets and wealth by monarchs and put it in the hands of the people.
Local job creation is the only solution bcz us sending workforce to GCC like slave labourers should end now. Not only we face discrimination in pay scale compared to other nationalities but also horrific treatment by Emaratis and Saudis.
I've always been of the strong opinion that we need tax collection and reinvestment in industry, with a focus on Pakistani brand development, and infrastructure.

We should forget social welfare schemes for now.

Why Turkey who has ties with Usrael for 70 years is not criticized.. This is utter hypocrisy by some pretending to be Muslims..
I agree with @Homo Sapiens that this policy, appeasement, etc... was developed during administrations that were not only hostile to Erdogan and his party but Islam and traditional Turkic culture in general.

However, look at how far Erdogan has brought his country from those dark days, is increasingly pushing back against Europe's Islamophobia while the UAE's representatives like Anwar Gargash applaud it and has taken the lead in fighting Israeli backed war criminals like Haftar in nations such as Libya while increasingly replacing Israel and the US as a source of arms for Muslim nations that were routinely denied access to defence equipment to protect themselves.

Erdogan and Turkey did not have to champion the rights of Palestinians the same is true of Pakistan since we're not Arabs instead we did because they're Muslim.

However, let's have a look at the UAE whose own representative Anwar Gargash had said:
“The vague and contradictory stands of Pakistan and Turkey are an absolute proof that Arab security — from Libya to Yemen — is the responsibility of none but Arab countries,”

If "Arab security... is the responsibility of Arab countries" why lean on Israel and the US?

What happened to protecting fellow Arabs like the Palestinians and their interests?

What does supporting madmen war criminals and terrorists like Khalifa Haftar have to do with securing peace and prosperity for the people in Libya whose democratically elected leadership was under severe attack before Turkey stepped in?

Why support the overthrow of democratically elected Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and how does this help the Arab peoples of Egypt?

Why now reproach Assad who has driven millions of good Arab peoples out of the country and murdered hundreds of thousands more?

cries of a dying breed. With oil money running dry these GCC baboons have lost their mind. All countries getting threatened should quit OIC and Arab leaving and start anew economic block to promote trade keeping UAE and Saydis out of it.
Sooner or later their money will dry up and they will be destroyed by the west. They have no power only Allah azawajal has the power. There time is close....they go back to using Donkey, mules, horses and camels.
Oil accounts to only 5% of uae revenue. They have an investment portfolio fund aka sovereign wealth fund of $1.139 trillion. That's 4.5 times greater than pakistans entire gdp. Last time I checked Pakistan asked UAE for loans, not the other way around. So who's money is drying up????

Don't talk with emotions, talk with facts

When Soviets were oppressing central Asian Muslims and destroying their Mosques, their culture, their language, taking away their freedom, where was Pakistan then???? Where was your Ummah then???? Ohhh that's right, pakiland was busy asking the Soviets to build a nice brand new national steel mill for their country.

Keep that false Muslim brotherhood crap to yourself. Wake up and smell the coffee. And take a shower because you smell of hypocrisy

Please correct your facts. Oil crude exports account for 30 % of UAE GDP. Finished oil good account for almost 40_50% of their annual budget. Rest is services agri and luxury goods exports. Dont know where you getting your facts but please correct yourself with proper research.

Pakistan picked its time to fight and when the time was right we worked alongside our brothers/sisters in Afghanistan to destroy the USSR. This was done in conjunction with Saudi Arabia, under the great leadership of King Faisal, who lifted the oil embargo placed on the West in order to crash global oil prices which the Soviet Union heavily relied on to finance their government and armed forces.

Without the oil revenues the USSR relied on and the continued support of Pakistan to our brothers/sisters in Afghanistan they were able to liberate their nation from Soviet occupation.

That's where the Ummah was.

When Libya's GNA was about to fall Turkey, under the magnanimous leadership of Erdogan, came to its aid and saved it from a mad Israeli and UAE backed warlord Khalifa Haftar.

In the case of Azerbaijan the Turks provided crucial support when it squared off against an Armenia backed by Russia.

What about the Arab despots you're defending, wtf did they do? The easiest thing they could have done was voted in favor of Pakistan at the FATF and they won't even do that. So your criticism of Pakistan is unwarranted.

Unfortunately Pakistan couldn't, nor can it currently, take on the responsibility of being the protector of all Muslims. After almost 100 years of theft at the hands of the British, deindustrialization under colonial rule and complete mismanagement of the economy under the PML-N, PPP and Musharraf we have a host of challenges we need to work on from our economy to the liberation of Kashmir.

Pakistan's goal is to find and work with committed likeminded allies within the Muslim world because we're stronger together than apart.

Turkey is one such ally and is increasingly proving itself as a true brother in faith and arms.

India's "Muslims", the Saudi's, UAE, etc... are useless as they can't even protect themselves while more keen on defending and working with Hindu terrorists and/or French fascists.

You will see the establishing of crucial economic and military ties that will eventually culminate into mutual and collective defence agreements that radical Christian, Hindu and Secular nations will fight tooth and nail to prevent. There will be puppets like the despots that run the GCC, Syria, etc... who will fight against it as well in order to protect their own dictatorships but they'll fail.

They have an investment portfolio fund aka sovereign wealth fund of $1.139 trillion. That's 4.5 times greater than pakistans entire gdp. Last time I checked Pakistan asked UAE for loans, not the other way around. So who's money is drying up????
If you want to debate Pakistan and the UAE's growth potentials let alone viability as nations I'm more than happy to.

I invest for wealth generation as well as well but in the case of a nation soverign wealth funds don't actually make it strong or viable otherwise Norway would be a global power.

Those wealth funds are highly susceptible to state seizures, sanctions and embargoes that could include asset freezes and the Emiratii's, like the Saudis, don't control the assets they invest in nor do they have the power projection capabilities to protect those investments which means they must be subservient to the wants and desires of foreign nations that they rely on good relations with in order to continue investing in them and ensure their investments remain theirs.

The UAE lacks the manufacturing base along with the domestic economy, variability of mineral deposits, arable land and population base to support these deranged delusions of grandeur.

Pakistan on the other hand is a sleeping juggernaut with a massive young workforce, multitude of climates, large fresh water resource and a myriad of different mineral deposits (gold, copper, shale, lignite, etc...) that simply have not been exploited and utilized to their fullest potential.

In the event of large scale fighting that targeted their main cities many GCC economies would be totally and utterly destroyed whereas nations like Pakistan, India, Turkey, etc... can survive and rebuild.

I agree, it's a shame that Pakistan is reliant on loans and remittances from nations like the UAE, Saudi Arabia, etc... but that's not going to be the case forever the reason for Pakistan's sad state of affairs is primarily a result of complete mismanagement and bad economic policies pushed by Gen. Musharraf, Nawaz Sharif, Zardari, etc...

However, a lot of issues are currently being corrected though I personally feel that Khan and the PTI are distracting themselves with their work on social welfare programs while every penny should be reinvested into industry and infrastructure to reduce/eliminate imports and drive growth.

Oil accounts to only 5% of uae revenue.
Not sure where you got this figure.

Low oil prices have a much larger impact on the UAE's revenue streams and economy than you might think.

For example UAE government revenues went from 41% of GDP in 2013 to 29% of GDP by 2015 while they went from having a budget surplus of 10.4% of GDP in 2013 to a deficit of 5.2% of GDP by 2016. This is all occurring in the backdrop of GDP growth that has dropped from 5.3% in 2013 to 1.7% by 2018 and that was before the Covid19 pandemic.

Why do you think they instituted a 5% VAT in 2018?

The UAE has come a long way in terms of diversification from 90% of their GDP relying on oil revenues to now only about 34% of it. However, 1/3 of GDP from a single commodity isn't small and it's that oil revenue that was the primary source of growth for the sovereign wealth funds injecting the foreign exchange necessary for reinvestment.

Do recall that it was that oil and gas that necessitated the need for American, let alone any foreign, involvement in the defence of GCC nations. What purpose do these economies/nations serve and why would there be any assistance to them otherwise?

Well I can think of one reason, to be used as a satellite to attack Pakistan and China's growing presence in the Arabian Sea and wider ocean.

Furthermore, the UAE like other GCC economies are heavily reliant on expats and their investments and economic activity to fuel real estate/construction sectors which now account for about 20% of the UAE's overall GDP while another 30% of their GDP is generated from wholesale/retail trade, manufacturing and Business Services which again rely on the expat community that makes up about 90% of their population.

In the event of a war do you expect any of those expats to stay let alone hold investments in the country?

How long do you expect the flow of people from Pakistan, India and Bangladesh (who alone account for about 50% of the overall population in the UAE) to GCC economies to last?

What happens to the UAE and other GCC economies without that source of labour and economic activity?

Keep that false Muslim brotherhood crap to yourself. Wake up and smell the coffee. And take a shower because you smell of hypocrisy
Kind of ironic that your username is "Salahuddin Ayyubi" who lead a pan-Islamic force against the Crusades while defending the very Arab despots that are now attempting to sell Jerusalem and Palestinian lands away.

I'm sorry but I'm sickened by, and tired of, this deranged Hindu and secular terrorist supporting Arab despot nonsense against the Muslim Brotherhood.

Frankly we need confirmation of whether the UAE is supporting BLA terrorists not to mention action against their complicity in money laundering within Pakistan and support of drug dealers and other criminals within our nation.

I agree, a lot of people need to wake up and smell the coffee.

I recall saying around 15 years ago, long before I even joined PDF, that the world was reverting back to the original pre-colonial state where power centers in Turkey (Ottoman Empire), China and South Asia (Mughal Empire but particulary Pakistan if it plays its cards right).

Personally I feel that cordial relations with Saudi Arabia and the UAE are necessary for now for economic reasons but that's simply not our future particularly if they become a threat to Pakistan and our allies.
