Dr Ramy Abdu, an Assistant Professor of Law and Finance and founder and Chairman of Euromed Monitor (an independent, nonprofit organization “for the protection of human rights”) has attacked some including my good friend Thani Al Shirawi.
Their crime? Having tea with Shivi Froman, the son of Rabbi Menachem Froman, and his wife Michal.
An Emirati family celebrates hosting a number of Zionist settlers in Dubai.
Well, by examining the image of the settlers, we know who they are:
Shivi Froman and his wife Michal.
Shivii is the son of the extremist rabbi, Menachem Froman, and he lives in the colony of Tekoa in the heart of the West Bank.
Three of them are among the most important supporters of the expansion of colonies and the annihilation of the Arabs.
Menachem Froman recorded one of the most famous violations against Al-Aqsa Mosque. On September 9, 2004, he held a marriage ceremony for his son inside Al-Aqsa during which he drank alcohol.
This is a pernicious libel.
First and foremost, the compound on which Al Aqsa mosque stands is the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism. Access is severely restricted to Jews, and it is protected from desecration pursuant to the Protection of Holy Places Law passed after the Six Day War. There is no way this incident could ever have happened.
If it had happened, you would definitely have heard about it. We’d like have had a World War III. But that did not occur because the incident never happened.
Also, if you are going to invent a libel about a Jew desecrating a Muslim religious site, at least do your research about the Jew in question. Rabbi Froman was a peacemaker and negotiator with close ties to palestinian religious leaders, well known for promoting and leading interfaith dialogue between Jews and Arabs, focusing on using religion as a tool and source for recognizing the humanity and dignity of all people. He even drafted a ceasefire agreement between Israel and the Hamas government in the Gaza Strip!
Yup, not the guy you want to be the subject of this particular slur.
Although truth be told, this is it has not stopped the Israel-haters in the past either.
Ramy Abdu knows the falsehood of his allegation here, yet has gone ahead with it. I can only conclude that he wants to start a religious war.
