Equality for foreign residents

My friend mentioned a quote by the late Sheikh Zayed of the UAE (God rest his soul) regarding expats (I refer to us as “foreign residents” as the term “expat” has become a term in Kuwait synonymous with all the problems in the country).

“Sheikh Zayed Al Nahyan was told that 85% of the workforce in the UAE is made up of expatriate workers, he said:

The livelihood is from God, 
the money is God's, 
the land is God's, 
the grace is God's, 
we are all God's creation, 
and he who has trusted God will never be failed, and those who come to us are welcome.”


I hope that the latest Kuwaiti government to be sworn in will have similar fundamental beliefs.
