Why, Dubai?

Rejected tells us her story of an Iraqi woman as it develops. From starting work in multinational companies in Baghdad after the war to life as a skilled Iraqi exile seeking work in Dubai. The comma in the title is significant. She not answering the question "Why Dubai?", she is asking Dubai "Why?". Why do you reject me? She writes:
Had I been a gypsy dancer, Pilipino escort or Russian club singer, I would have been received in open arms and granted residency in UAE.
Why?
being a decent Iraqi hard worker female made me lose my job in UAE and my future.
Why? Maybe we will find the answer maybe not. Its the journey that counts.

This might come as a shock to someone as proud of his grammar as yourself, and as critical of others’ efforts as you’ve been in the past, but you have missed out an "is".

Qual check.

I am following "Rejected" story from the begining. It concerns me to see motivated person who is want to work very hard for a better future for herself and her family to be in such a situation.

It is important to read her experience in a country like the Emirates, where all kinds of people want to go and work there

As an Iraqi, I salute her for her courage by telling a very painful personal experience.
