I read the news article twice to check if my eyes were not playing on me:
An Emirati woman was evicted from her home in Satwa by her landlord as the house she was living in with her Iranian husband, their four children and her brother’s orphan because the house was marked for demolition. The family is now living in a tent outside despite the summer heat.
Her youngest child, sixteen-month-old baby cries day and night due to irritation from the heat. Her many children are begging for food from neighbors.
Her story is heartbreaking and it’s real. All the while I thought that all local people (Emiratis) are rich and living in luxury with nothing to do but shop and powder dust on the lowly laborers in the streets while they drive their 4WD’s with uber expensive car plates.
