UAE poet barred from travel for rejecting Israel deal

A prominent Emirati poet banned from boarding a Cairo-bound flight from the Dubai Airport for rejecting Israel deal

A prominent Emirati poet said Sunday she was barred from travel over her opposition to her country’s decision to normalise relations with Zionist regime, Anadolu Agency reports.

Dhabiya Khamis said she was banned from boarding a Cairo-bound flight from the Dubai Airport.

 “The ban is probably because of my announced opinion against Zionism and normalisation,” she said on her social media accounts.

 “I fear for my freedom and life from being threatened and arrested,” she said.

Several writers and poets have expressed support and solidarity with Khamis after being banned from travel.

The female poet has earned the ire of the Emirati authorities after she described her country’s decision to normalize relations with Zionist regime as a “sad and catastrophic day”.

On Sept. 15, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain signed US-brokered normalisation agreements with Israel at the White House, ignoring the Palestinian rejection.
