The policy of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Egypt has come under fire from the world renowned Muslim scholar Yusuf al-Qaradawi and a popular Saudia Arabian columnist, Muhanna al-Habil.

During the Friday sermon of congregational prayers in Qatar, the Egyptian scholar Yusuf al-Qaradawi slammed the UAE for hosting Ahmad Shafiq, who was the right-hand man of former Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak. He also accused the UAE of standing against every Islamic rule and imprisoning Islamists.

The Saudi Arabian columnist Muhanna al-Habil went further to claim that the UAE was conspiring with Israel to trigger civil war in Egypt to rid it of the Muslim Brotherhood, which both see as a threat.

"The UAE, the head of the Gulf axis and bridge of cooperation with Tel-Aviv, has called for the killing of Muslim Brotherhood affiliates in the streets or at their homes. This affirms the existence of this axis and reiterates the view of its supporters and funders. The call was launched by activists affiliate to the regime in Abu-Dhabi," he said in his column on

Habil also noted the foolishness of such policy, saying "No one can control a civil war. Gulf money and Israeli support may be able to start one, but they can't stop it."

The UAE has also been jailing dozens of suspected Muslim Brotherhood members inside its state, with 20 Egyptians and 10 Emiratis jailed in mid-January.
