When Regev cried in Abu Dhabi and Netanyahu in Muscat

25 1 0

There are funny ironies in life and sad ones, and the ironies we are experiencing today with the accelerated normalisation of some Gulf countries that are not linked to Israel by the Israeli occupation are a dark comedy irony. Such comedy brings with it a flow of crying and laughter in Arab capitals.

Miri Regev, the extremist Israeli minister, cried with joy when the Israeli national anthem was played in Abu Dhabi after an Israeli player won the judo championship there. She said that she was overwhelmed with joy because this was the first time the anthem was played in a Muslim Arab capital.

The Hatikva Zionist anthem says, “Our hope is not yet lost, the hope two thousand years old, to be a free nation in our land, the land of Zion and Jerusalem.”

The Zionist minister is entitled to weep for joy, especially as she is known for her extreme positions towards Arabs and Muslims. She went to the Cannes Film Festival with a dress depicting a “united” Jerusalem as the capital of Israel including the image of Islamic and Christian religious monuments, which, according to international laws are occupied Palestinian sites. She was also the minister who said the voice of the call to prayer coming from the mosques sounded like dogs barking!

We have the right to weep for our Arabism, slaughtered on the altar of free normalisation, which a comprehensive peace agreement between the Arabs and the occupation.

Since we are talking about feelings, we must recall the warm and emotional scene between the Israeli Minister of Culture, Miri Regev and the President of the UAE Judo Federation, a day before the scene of her crying in Abu Dhabi. Meanwhile, the UAE closes its doors to other Arabs due to conflicts........
