35. Oh look, a DU'er saying ignorant shit about the Middle East! It must be Monday

The UAE actually contributes several billion in foreign aid, primarily to other muslim nations, with Yemen and Afghanistan being the major recipients, and Pakistan and the Palestinian Territories being the next ones on the list. Dubai is also the epicenter of charity giving in the Arab world, with Non-government charities and donors raising and giving several billion more. And contrary to your assertion, the UAE doesn't rail against Israel (though granted the two do not have "official" diplomatic relations... they do have some economic and political ties despite that, however).

But don't worry. This is DU, after all, facts and reality don't matter when discussing the Middle East, Arabs, or Muslims in general.
